I try not to read reviews, at least until I've seen a movie. Afterwards, sometimes I can't resist, but it always ends up pissing me off. There are so many cynical f***tards out there that wouldn't be happy no matter what, and I guess since it's the internet and it's their right to free speech, they have their say. Some of the dumbest criticisms I've read of this film include: "The movie was nothing like the trailer. They lied to us". What??? You're mad because they didn't give away the whole story in the trailer??? You should never go to the movies again. You should just watch trailers & then write reviews, jack***. Another one was, "They totally strayed from the comics/cartoons, and ruined the villain". You're upset because they didn't go with a formulaic, two-dimensional, bond-type villain, and instead gave the audience a little something different, for a change? Go play in traffic, like a good fanboy. For everyone else, go see the movie, it's entertaining. Period.

Movie was full of story. I enjoyed the movie, had its moments of laughter and action, but lots of story. Not the best of the 3, but enjoyable. If comparing it to The Avengers, I'm sorry, it isn't close, but still worth seeing in the theater.

I go to see the Iron Man movies for “Iron Man” action stuff in the suit and the special effects. Robert Downy is a great Tony Stark, with his quick wit/banter and delivery, but I don’t want to see him duke it out with super beings in street clothes thru 90% of the action scenes. I say pass and wait for it to come out on DVD/Blu Ray.

The action is there, the story hooks you. Considering today's terrorism topics, the story is current. Throw in the Ironman persona, you got Ironman 3. And Pepper got the suit! Story twists and of course, the Tony Stark one liners. I really enjoyed this show.

I liked this film. Exciting, fast-paced with a touch of soul-searching included. I didn't think the 3D was very spectacular a la Avatar spectacular, just ordinary 3D. There was good interplay between the characters, enough twists to keep you guessing, and the overall effects (sans the 3D) were way good. References to previous films were scattered throughout; although, it's hard to imagine why they left New York after building the giant Stark Tower. All in all, a good, exciting part of the Marvel lore that will be added to my collection, no doubt, when available.
