close a trilogy just hope they don't & also hope we get another movie from Robert. Really enjoyed the story & all the new suits, go Pepper way to finally get into the action. Sit through the credits you won't be disappointed.

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.

What movie is this? IM3 suffers from an identity crisis among many other things. First there's no AC/DC on the soundtrack... Why!? Then Tony Stark is scripted to be so anxiety ridden that it changed the perception of his personality. Thirdly, he is rarely in an iron suit throughout the movie but when he is, he jumps in and out of them quickly because the suits have problems with power and protection (they break easily). Wah? This movie fails to connect well with IM 1 & 2. It's different in a strange way - IM/Tony Stark is not as fun and likeable. There's no "Shoot To Thrill" theme music when Iron Man appears. It's just disappointing to meet this stranger when you used to know him as a cool hero.
You might see the movie once to satisfy your curiosity but then you'll want to forget it.

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.
