Not only does this serve as a great bookend to the Iron Man trilogy, but it also doubles as Avengers 1.5. Some plot holes and a lack of character development keep this from being a great film while great banter from Robert Downey Jr and awesome action makes it a great Marvel flick.

My wife, son and I went to see it last night and were riveted. All 3 of us left the theatre expressing what a great movie it was. Unfortunately there was so much going on with so many sub plots and sub context you don't catch it all because of all the action. You will need to see it again at least once or twice to catch the things you missed the first time...but well worth the price of admission.

So much fun to watch this character. The villains are passable. But as in all the iron man movie, the villains are just an excuse to watch tony stark work. Would have liked to see more from the Rebecca hall character. Especially when pepper was in the room.
Love John faverau but he needed to hit the gym or something. Perhaps it was a conscious choice.
Overall, great return by the iron wonder. You're only reading this if you're going to go. So go.

It's not on a par with The Avengers, neither is it the best of the Iron Man (Men?) franchise, however it is extremely entertaining and well made and avoids the pitfall of not knowing what to do with a large number of bad guys (in part through a twist which I of course won't spoil).
Hope this review is helpful to you.

The IMAX can't help. The 3D can't help. The state-of-the-art special effects can't help. This is a confusing and muddled mess. A bunch of special effects scenes that make no sense together, In fact, when the action drops this is a dull and dark story. At least half an hour too long. Too bad, I had been waiting for this one since I really enjoyed IM2.
