The story line had potential but they over complicated it. RDJr was amazing! They could have nailed it in under two hours. Liked the first two better.

This is Shane's fourth of his nine films that take place during Christmas and have a kidnapping.
I had high hopes as I am of fan of the Lethal Weapons and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
But this movie is as good as The Last Action Hero. As in NOT!
What made the studio think that what the franchise needed was for the hard drinking and highly intelligent man of action to be racked with sobriety and self doubt?
The Mandarin. Wtf? There are no words. It's like they just pasted the name on a character that was already in the script.
After watching this movie I went home and put on the Avengers. I needed it.
Dear Jon Favreau, Iron Man needs your help. You need to rescue the franchise..

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.

I was pleasantly surprised with this installment. I figured it would be over the top, but lacking substance. I was wrong. I enjoyed the storyline, giving some insight into the characters history. Absolutely loved Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin! I doubt anyone could have played that part better. And as always, loved Gwyneth Paltrow. It was good to see her becoming a bit of a bad*** in this one. I hope they (Robert and Gwyneth) sign up for at least one more movie. I really like their chemistry together. All in all, I really enjoyed this movie.
