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.

LOVED it! This movie is awesome! I usually worry about the 3rd movie in a series, but I was not disappointed in this one at all. I loved the first one, but this is a close second in my book. I love the funny quips and innuendos throughout. And, Ben Kingsley is amazing.

(spoiler alert!) I had a ton of fun with this movie. I enjoyed the shock of seeing Tony's house demolished. I loved the "facing your demons" theme. Tony's interactions with the little boy where both metaphorical and hilarious! I enjoyed seeing Piper have a couple of moments where she was the hero for a change. The "good guys" were lovable, the "bad guys" were creepy and the movie moved along at the pace that we have come to expect from new superhero films. What is there to complain about? This movie is pure fun.

The action scenes are exciting, the acting is respectable, there are plenty of comic moments, and the plot has a twist that you won't see coming but will quickly appreciate. Not better than the first Iron Man but definitely on par, which means it's one of the best of the Marvel superhero movies. And as others have pointed out, it's nice to cheer for someone whose superpower is being really smart and creative, rather than a human who is an accidental recipient of some freak power or a demi-god from another world or dimension.

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.
