Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
Iron Man 3 is an ominously exciting, shoot-the-works comic-book spectacular.

Slant Magazine

By Chris Cabin
A madly creative, darkly comical, and fiendishly self-aware actioner with muscle to spare.

Thanks to Downey’s genius, Iron Man 3 is equally terrific, whether Tony’s fending off an army of villains or bantering with a kid in a shed...

Downey, Jr. remains a rightfully cherished smartass figure, having as much a ball with Black’s one-liners as he had in “KKBB,” and he sells...

The Hollywood Reporter

Black and his co-screenwriter, first-timer Drew Pearce, have great fun reshuffling the deck, teasing about who might occupy what superhero...

The Telegraph

By Robbie Collin
Black has an instinctive feel for balancing action set-pieces against the passages of soap-opera that are required to make them matter.

The rambunctious Iron Man 3 is a briskly paced thrill ride until about 90 minutes in, when the excitement wanes. A few late-breaking...

Iron Man 3 is more perfunctory and workmanlike than its two predecessors, but this solid production still delivers more than enough of what...

Excellent!!

By topthrilldragster
Avengers was better. But this is a great movie. Excellent Effects. Incredible turn of events. You will be very surprised at what happens through out the film. Stay until after the credits are...

Best of the three hands down!

By sea7
I can not begin to say how surprised I was that this third movie in the series was this time out!!! All the characters were fabulous! The humor and action and plot were intense. (The humor...

Happy Needs to Direct

By DaveWV
It was a bold new direction, but a bad one. It had the potential, but relied on RDJr to carry it with jokes. See it if you are a complete-ist, otherwise watch Avengers again. And I'm not a hater, I...

Rust on the Franchise

By MedRed
Do not expect a movie on par with the Avengers. Iron Man 3 in no way approaches the lofty bar set by that movie. IM3 isn't bad but didn't meet my expectations IM3's plot combines the genetically...

Worth seeing but not as great as I had hoped.

By blu_rondo
It was pretty good. Lots of action and big explosions which I like. A good number of the typical "Tony Stark wit and humor" laugh moments. They could have done a bit more plot development instead of...

This one is for the people new to Iron Man, not the long time fans.

By JKitsune
To start off, I'll view the movie through my father's eyes. He likes any movie that goes boom and uses tons of special effects. In short, he loves every Jerry Bruckheimer film. Power to him, there is...

What went wrong here?

By HoodCritic1
IM3 was supposed to be the beginning of Phase 2 of the Avengers Initiative. Instead of starting off with a bang, I left the theater scratching my head wondering what went wrong. The action was there,...

A Must See for Iron Man Fans!

I am not a die hard comic reader, in fact I have never read a comic book in my life, but I still enjoy the marvel movies and have to take it at face value, since I have no prior history to base it...

I want my money back to go see it again.
