The film was great. I loved all the action. I even liked that they gave him a weakness and they included what happened in The Avengers and didn't just pretend it never happened. The Christmas theme drove me a little crazy but other than that it was an excellent show.

Not sure where to begin. It tried so desperately to go back to Iron Man 1 and force Tony to start a new life "with a box of scraps", but none of it made sense in the process. It was so herky-jerky from serious to humor that it was hard to take it all seriously. Action scenes were very unrealistic and thrown in for no reason (especially the one in Tennessee), bad guys and henchmen popped up from no where at just the right time, plot holes were conveniently filled at just the right moment, useless characters and random sub-characters that didn't need to be there (the kid, Maya, the Pres., Happy), the fact that Tony seemingly has a heavy-duty printer for his suits... and this was all before the movie took a complete nose-dive halfway into the film (regarding who "The Mandarin" actually is). Maybe I went into the film with too high of expectations, but I came out with a headache; one because it was midnight, but also because I metaphorically hit my head against a wall watching this thing.

With plenty of masterfully-made action sequences and interesting character development. Iron Man 3 delivers on quite a bit, however it isn't perfect, and definitely does not stack up to it's 2012 predecessor, the Avengers. What really annoyed me was that there were so many times when the humor of the movie ruined any sort of seriousness of the movie. It was difficult to take this movie seriously at all!

I loved this movie and the action may have made this the best movie of the Iron Man trilogy. You may not agree that it is the best, but it is definitely a must see.

They changed things quite a bit from the comics.
There was a character that felt rather superfluous.
These did not feel like Iron Man villains. It was more... X-Men.
Tony Stark recovering from The Avengers
Tony Stark proving he's more than just a man in a suit.
James Rhodes proving he's worthy of his reputation.
There is a pretty great little boy.
