It was pretty good. Lots of action and big explosions which I like. A good number of the typical "Tony Stark wit and humor" laugh moments. They could have done a bit more plot development instead of leaning so heavily on the action. The end felt like a let down, though I can't place my finger on why.

IM3 was supposed to be the beginning of Phase 2 of the Avengers Initiative. Instead of starting off with a bang, I left the theater scratching my head wondering what went wrong. The action was there, the acting was there, the screenplay was fine, the visual effects were up to code, but this star didn't light up the way it was supposed to. Shane Black had a nice vision for what this movie could have been but I felt that he sacrificed continuity and the chance to make this saga as full circle as possible for the chance to just leave his own stamp on the "Iron Man" franchise. I was let down by this movie. I tried to like it, but somewhere, this movie lost its firepower and turned out to be a dud.

I am not a die hard comic reader, in fact I have never read a comic book in my life, but I still enjoy the marvel movies and have to take it at face value, since I have no prior history to base it on. After seeing the 3rd Iron Man movie, I have to say that I think it was the best one so far! So much great action and effects at every turn, and many things surprised me and caught me off guard. I did see this movie in 3D, and was slightly disappointed by the 3D graphics, but still, it was a great ride from start to finish.

This is great action movie. Lots of chills and thrills. About time we saw Gwyneth Paltrow get a chance to do some rescuing for a change, instead of being the one always scared and helpless.
However, the music score for this release was reall bad and out of contact with the movie theme.
The movie might be a bit harsh for younger children, but otherwise, from kids on up to the older generation will enjoy it.
