Horrible storyline. Boring introduction, great action sequences and acting by Downey Jr. with a blaise, kumbaya ending.
Very disappointing. For those that were excited by the previews and having awaited this movie on the heels of The Avengers, disappointment is assured.

It was an interesting movie, great storyline and action. The 3-d was lacking though! There wasn't much 3-d action worth spending the extra money to see the 3-d version.

Really wanted to love this, but it never clicked for me. I thought the first Iron Man was very intelligent in addition to all the action. Iron Man 2 a little less intelligent. This one didn't seem intelligent at all. Lots of great action scenes, some very funny bits andI loved the kid acting with Robert Downey Jr. - great scenes. But overall ... just "meh" from me.
Definitely plan to see it again, though. Sometimes movies are better on second watch.

Excellent Special Effects - I give an edge to "Into Darkness" thou! Great theme a man's iron will against another man's! Another - will the real man stand-up and show themselves, nice effort to bring that together! Excellent humor and dialogue.

This was the most emotionally charged Iron Man performance to date. Everyone from Happy to Pepper to Stark himself and even faithful Jarvis deliver riveting dramatic tension, but there are still plenty of pyrotechnics and the hard-hitting, butt-kicking steel-suited hijinks we have come to expect from an Iron Man experience. I don't think I'd bring anyone much younger than the PG-13 rating implies though, with somewhat graphic portrayals of violence to human body parts.
