I'm a long time fan of the Iron Man lineage, beginning with the comic books. This might create some bias, I'll admit.
This movie grabs ahold of your attention, races forward like a freight train and doesn't let up until after the end of the credits.
Yes, it's that good.

Definitely worth seeing, I think it was great, and I can be hard to please with these movies. If there was any complaint, I would say it is that you should probably see The Avengers first, just because they refer to it several times. While it's not a huge piece of the story, I kept thinking that years from now when people want to watch this whole trilogy they are going to be thrown off if they don't watch The Avengers in between Iron Man 2 and 3.

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..

Over all a good movie. However, my first impression was that it lacked something.....it was slower than I expected. I am a huge Iron Man fan and this one let me down a little. It lacked that Iron Man edge that I have become accustomed. I think Happy maybe should have directed this one as well.

I heard it was the best of the three. It's not that I didn't like it, but it wasn't the best. The last 30 minutes were the best. And I liked when Pepper was kickin butt. I think the movie could've done with out the cussing though, especially since they were quite strong words.
