I knew from the start I would like this movie, but when I saw it on the big screen (XD screen to be exact) I was blown away. The new tricks that they had given Tony Stark in this movie was too cool and the way he got out of some jams was incredible. Also, one of the biggest twists of all with the Mandarin, that was crazy. It had a lot of funny parts, too. Total overall, just AWESOME! MUST GO! CHECK IT OUT!

After reading some of the reviews, I had fairly high expectations when I went to see Iron Man 3.
While the action was terrific, and the plot was fairly good, the movie took a bit too long to get to the fun action, and a movie like this can't live on dialog alone. There was a little humor but not enough for my taste.
Overall, it was a fun way to spend 140 minutes.

Great movie! Loved Tony as always-MY SEXY MOVIE CRUSH....the twist w/Pepper was awesome....The Mandarin was an evil genius (hope to see him again)....loved the "House Party"...hated the "Clean Slate"....War Machine/Iron Patriot was beast....
And before you die-hard comic book fans chime in,...No, I do not read them, but I do understand the movie villain is not as evil as the comic book version.
Cant wait to see this again....now bring on my other movie crush----THOR!!!!!!!!!! :-)

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.

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.
