Iron Man exceeded my expectations in every way. It was the best version yet. I look forward to seeing future Iron Man movies too. Although the ending shows everything one way, we all know that only increases the potential for future expansions of the story. Loved it!

I'll admit that I had doubts before the movie began. From the mixed reviews on tumblr and twitter,etc... I wasn't going to get my hopes up.
I must say, I was blown away. I went with my parents, ages 57 and 52, and they enjoyed it as much as I, despite the fact that neither one of them had enjoyed the previous Iron man films.
Iron Man Three mixes the elements of adventure and creative ability in a cacophony of packed sequences and dead-panned humor, with tads of romance thrown in.
Going in, many had mentioned that the Mandarin was nothing like the Comic version. As an individual who has read a few of the Marvel comics here and there, I personally prefer this version better.
So, all in all, Iron man three was excellent. I'll be seeing it again ASAP.
I would highly recommend the film to those invested in the comics as well as those who can't tell the difference between DC and Marvel.
By the way: STAY TILL THE VERY END, AFTER THE CREDITS

I continue to be surprised by the creativity of the plot lines with the Iron Man series. Not only is this movie highly entertaining, it also delivers a solid morality tale to the audience. This movie is fun for all ages b/c it delivers good humor and nothing seems over the top with too much violence or vulgarity. Iron Man 3 is a down to earth tale that will keep the audience engaged until the very end.

Don't go into this movie expecting the Avengers. In fact, I may even go so far as to say don't go into this movie expecting the traditional Marvel formula.
Iron Man 3 demonstrates the strongest story of the franchise but also perhaps the weakest action. After the events in The Avengers, Tony is broken, beaten and full of self doubt. All the action sequences in the movie reflect his fragile state and are subsequently so-so at best. Sure there is one huge fight (as there are in all superhero movies) that's pretty cool, and the villain is great, but in terms of our hero, we never see the Iron Man that existed before New York anywhere in the film.
It's also possible we may never see that Iron Man again.
A solid 4 out of 5.
