This was a great movie. I saw it in 3D IMAX, it was mind blowing. The movie was intense and kept me interested, while also being comical. It is definitely a movie I think people should watch. :)

Iron Man 3 continues to build on the Marvel Movie Universe (MMU) version of the comic book version of Iron Man to good effect. Borrowing heavily from the Warren Ellis and Matt Fraction comics story lines, it departs drastically in many other ways; e.g. identity of the Mandarin, Stark's surgery, etc. If the comic book fans can accept that the MMU Iron Man story differs in many ways, the core characters of Stark, Hap, Rhodes and Potts remain true to the overall comics' rendering and simply enjoy the ride.
Visually, the film is a knock-out and the action is truly astoundingly massive. Each of the actors rise above it all but Kingsley's Mandarin, is superb and a real delight. The only plot device that I had a bit of trouble with was Stark's anxiety. It's not fully explained sufficiently enough for this viewer.
A great summer movie and a respectable addition to the mounting MMU canon.
NOTE: Some of the action may be too intense/loud for kids 7 and younger.

I already reviewed this movie and I bashed on it a lot but now that I think of it it's really not as bad as I made it out to be. there is that one scene I really didn't like but that shouldn't take away from my overall enjoyment of the film and with that being said iron man 3 is a very fun installment to the avengers universe. The plot was a little different especially with that twist in the middle it was lie the mandarin said you'll never see him coming. The cast was good I enjoyed everyone but Guy pearce and Rebecca Hall were superb they were by far my favorite parts of the movie. Tony stark is as good as ever when it comes to being a smart ass. Not going to spoil anything but pepper finally gets some action which is always refreshing to see a female on the front lines. I think him having all the suits was cool but the way the did that could have been a tad bit better but I still like what they did. bottom line go into iron man 3 with a open mind and you'll have a lot more fun. 8/10

I really enjoyed Iron Man 3. Fans of the comic may be put off by the character of Mandarin, but there was humor, special effects, and twists. The perfect formula for an entertaining summer film. However, the first Iron Man is still by far the best.

LOVED the movie!!! I saw Iron Man 3...3 times on opening day!!! The 3rd show I attended was in (so-called) IMAX. I said "so called" because the theater's idea of an IMAX presentation is showing the movie on a "regular" sized movie screen...and charging people $15 per ticket. This is NOT a true IMAX presentation! Sure, the picture & sound quality was superb...but...without the huge, HUGE IMAX movie screen...it was NOT an IMAX feature. This movie theater is cheating the people of Amarillo, Texas!!!
