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.

I saw this in 3D and loved it! Robert Downey Jr. always gives a first rate performance. I loved the humor interjected into the script. The special effects were amazing. I noted, happily, that the language was appropriate for young audiences...refreshing after all the gratuitous cursing that exists in most movies today. Don't miss!

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.

Going into this movie I was hesitant because the reviews stated it was dull with too much emphasis on the 3D action effects. When we got to the theatre I was really worried because we had to sit toward the front & I thought for sure I'd get motion sickness. Thankfully not only was I completely wrong but my son & I keep saying how much we loved the movie. Tony Stark is extra funny and extra full of himself. He and Pepper are the best they've ever been together and the new characters are equally fun. The action is as expected and the story was as funny as it interesting. This movie makes it hard to decide which Iron Man we like best!
