Nice third installment in the Iron Man saga. Robert Downey Jr. is terrific again as Tony Stark facing new challenges, uncovering new enemies and gaining new allies. The plot was fast-paced and interesting, with lots of unexpected twists and turns. I was afraid the trailers covered all the great scenes, but nope. There was lots more to discover!
Among all the Iron Man movies, this one made the best use of the supporting cast. Pepper and Rhodey have more to do than normal, and new characters come on the scene without too much fanfare. Special effects are terrific and natural. There are a few places where things fly across the screen so fast you almost miss them, but the Iron Man suit(s) look wonderful and the animation to put the suits on and off is very cool.
Definitely worth seeing once or twice!

There were some discrepancies, but all-in-all a fun movie. Humor was on point. Pepper...whoa...they moved up her game. I would recommend for most viewers.

It's just another Iron Man movie of Robert Downey depicting Tony Stark as the smart-mouth genius saving the world...again. The Mandarin certainly caught me off-guard and goes to show that most fans don't even know Iron Man's villains.

IMHO ... This is the best Iron Man to date! I am not a FAN FAVE of comics ... therefore I loved the comical twist. I especially loved how "human" Iron Man. The romance piece - FINALLY - THANK YOU!

What do i have to say about iron man 3? Well quite frankly, I was utterly disappointed. I'm an avid comic book reader. Now, that doesn't mean I expect every underlying detail to match up with the comics. It means I expect the changes from the comics to be subtle. The director's creative input should not radically change something integral to the story. It's the subtle changes that allow a comic book movie to be not just passable but to be an absolute masterpiece. Iron Man 3 had such potential with the introduction of extremis, the iron legion, and the mandarin. And when it was time to deliver, this movie sh*t the bed. So, if comic books aren't really your thing then i welcome you to enjoy the film. As to other fellow comic fans I'd say save your money and wait for it to come out on red box or for your cable provider to release it.
