The first Iron Man movie was great! The second - Spectacular. This one, not so much. It had all the special effects you would expect but the once indestructible suit seems to get ripped to shreds with ease making this movie goer question the entire film. Very disappointed in IM3. However, if you liked the first two you know you have to see it no matter what I write so go enjoy the flick and when you get done you will understand why I rated this less than inspiring movie So-So. But I remember how Die Hard 3 took that franchise down the wrong road and by the 4th one Bruce redeemed himself. Maybe if Robert Downey, Jr. comes back he can redeem himself too. They can even call it "Iron Man 4 - Redemption"!!

I've been an avid fan of Iron Man for quite some time now, going so far as to reading and collecting the comics and going to the premiers of each new Iron Man movie. Last night was no exception. I grabbed my tickets early, got in line well in advance to beat the crowds, only to be let down by the biggest disappointment. I'm sure those that have not read the comics will certainly enjoy this movie, but for those who have read about Iron Patriot, The Mandarin, and Extremis I have no doubt in my mind that this movie will have strayed greatly from the stories. While creative license generally means good things for movies, I felt that Iron Man 3 grossly mishandled the story.

I can see where some diehard fans might be put off by some of the jokes but I thought the movie was a great balance of action, drama/tension and fun. Just when you think there can't be more, there is. The story was very satisfying and is a great addition to the series but is also very watchable if you haven't seen previous installments. Downey Jr. definitely didn't disappoint and I thought the kid was hilarious. There's one scene that I laughed and laughed and I never laugh out loud at movies. Kingsley was also fantastic as well as Guy Pearce. Of course the CGI was awesome and in hindsight I think this would have been worth seeing in 3D. We don't always want to spend the extra money but this probably would have been great. Might have to see it again . . . which we also never do (in the theater). Stay for ALL the credits!
