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.

So it was a great movie. I loved it. It was everything I love about Iron Man and Marvel. However.... it wasn't quite what I was expecting based on the trailer and the adverts. The Mandarin was not what I was expecting... I won't give anything away... but I'll just say that it was a little bit of a let down... I was a tad bit disappointed... It was still a great movie and I enjoyed it but wasn't quite what I was led to believe by the previews. And at the end, there was something with Tony... again won't give anything away... but I'm not sure if I like that they did what they did...
Oh and BTW, stay after the credits... I'll just say two words: Science Bros

Great, action-packed movie. Love Robert Downey, Jr., especially his sense of humility.
Don't think you need to see this movie in 3-D; however. We did see it in 3-D and wore the glasses, but there was not enough 3-D action to necessitate it.

I loved the film, everything was brilliant, there wasn't one bad thing about the movie, i couldn't take my eyes of the screen, there was banter in the film and very touching scenes, i would see it again!
