Action scenes were great.
Plot (I know, why even discuss plot for an action blockbuster, but I'm thinking even compared to its two predecessors) requires more of a logical leap of faith to follow.

I knew I would see this movie (good or bad) - I do like the story line (tho' some seems dis-connected). Although while waiting for the movie to come to the theatre I heard that the character (Tony Stark) would not be drinking in this movie - initially, I thought that was a bad idea - but I was much pleasantly surprised that it worked without the alcohol driven personality, there was still enough narcissim & sarcasm for anyone. It wraps up a story line very well - but extremely loosely (very loosely) hints at a fourth movie. Overall, I Loved It and if movie tickets weren't so expensive would see it at the theatre again. Go & Make your decision about the "New" Tony Stark.

I like the movie !
The acting, music, directing, cinematography, writing, special effects were very good.
This movie has a message, that make you meditate on the purpose of life, and I like that.
I will recommend it to all kids and adults.

Iron Man 3 had its good moments, and its bad moments. The extremis part, good moment. The mandarin was a F-ing horrible moment. I just hope that they didn't ruin Mandarin to the point where a decent movie could be made with him as the main villain. All in all it wasn't a horrible movie. If your luke warm about seeing it though. Wait for the dvd. You will probably be glad you did. If you can't wait to see it. Go and enjoy the good parts... They are there.

From the early trailers, I expected something rather dark, brooding, and exploring the profound effects of a life changing experience (a la The Avengers) as Tony Stark went back to living his "normal" life.
What I experienced was something which wanted me to suspend my disbelief too far (even for an Ironman movie). It was a bit insulting.
My oldest and his two friends (12 yrs old) LOVED it. They gave it an average of 8.5 out of 10.
For me, it was probably the worst of the three. It felt like this movie tried to be so many things, but it left me feeling shortchanged on most levels. It was a shotgun approach which failed to hit many of the targets (sub-plots) it tried to address.
Having said all that, I actually enjoyed Ben Kingsley's character in the end, and I liked the Air Force One sequence with Ironman to the rescue. The rest of the movie seemed either "forced" or too much fluff and not enough substance. Overall, not bad, but definitely NOT good.
