I must say that it was not Ironman who saved the day....it is Pepper! I was a bit taken back about the plot twist but I predicted it early on. What a waste for Ben Kingsley........why did he stoop so low??? Pepper is HOT! You cant stop looking at her! What was interesting for Tony is that he is fighting internalized demons. It is a story more about him and his internal struggles than the main story. It does add more as to the relationship he and Pepper have...and you finally get to see he feels deeply for her. The kid in this movie is tremendous! Another mini Tony and a very good side kick 1/3 of the way through the movie.
The story IS predictable....but fun to watch unfold. Lots of action. Although, Tony has had an easier time with kicking the aliens arses than he does the Mandrine. The concept of turning deformed people into time bombs is unique......but a bit over board. The other Iron Man movies were better. Tony finally solves the issue of who he is in the end.

The movie was okay all around. The action sequences were well orchestrated, and the humorous parts were well placed; however, the abundant focus on the weakness of Tony Stark, and even the inadequacy of the Iron Man suit was overplayed. And what they did to the Mandarine... unacceptable... The acting was, once again, above par. Robert Downey Jr IS Iron Man. Overall, Iron Man 3 is a good film. I recommend it, but beware the possibility of disappointment.

I was loving the movie until "the Mandarin twist". After that I was tempted to get up and leave. It was a insult to fans of the comic book and enjoyed the Mandarin vs Iron Man battles. I got aroundTony's endless anxiety attacks because of THE BATTLE OF NY and the pointless destruction of all the iron man suits at the end. The Mandarin was always a key villain of Iron Man and was a good battle of magic vs Technology. That storyline could have been better utilized with the Mandarins magical rings had and tied into the other magical/cosmic items in the Marvel Universe like the tesaract. Next time Disney decides to give Shane Black who created such nightmares as Last Boyscout the directors chair for a marvel movie please reconsider and pick someone who wont massacre the story. you had Ben Kinglsey a excellend actor play a key Villain and made him a English actor who was controlled by Killain a second rate villain who runs AIM - a organization that is a Stark Enterprises knockoff. So sad.

Robert Downey Jr. Is great, as always. Everyone else too. Ben Kingsley, hilarious.

Well, without giving away much detail (no one wants to know what happens until they see the movie) I have to say I liked it. There needed some editing, about 20 minutes to keep the action rolling. Some slow spots, and there was some fun action in there.
Tony Stark has come full circle. He has grown, feels guilt, feels pain, feels loss...but...not going to say anymore, like I said, I don't want to give much away...You have to see it, you won't be disappointed.
As with all Marvel movies, I HIGHLY recommend you not leave when the credits roll. Viewers should sit and relax through the, what seemed like 10 minutes of credits...but it is well worth it.
