I was anticipating Iron Man 3, but left wondering, "What happened"?
They made Pepper Potts character more powerful than Iron Man in some scenes.When he tried to use his suit it malfunctioned most of the time, and when she used it , it seemed to work every time...
Towards the end of the film, I was hoping for the moment when Iron Man would use all of his weaponry and emerge the hero. But once again we see Pepper Potts using the Iron Man suit to save the day...
It was great to see all of the IM's fly in to save the day, but where did they go when Tony was getting beaten up by the bad guy? You never see any of them again, until Tony tells Jarvis to blow them up....
Ben Kingsley could have really added a lot of power to the role as the Mandarin, if he had remained that character throughout the film.
They changed directors...Why change when IM was going well already?

What do i have to say about iron man 3? Well quite frankly, I was utterly disappointed. I'm an avid comic book reader. Now, that doesn't mean I expect every underlying detail to match up with the comics. It means I expect the changes from the comics to be subtle. The director's creative input should not radically change something integral to the story. It's the subtle changes that allow a comic book movie to be not just passable but to be an absolute masterpiece. Iron Man 3 had such potential with the introduction of extremis, the iron legion, and the mandarin. And when it was time to deliver, this movie sh*t the bed. So, if comic books aren't really your thing then i welcome you to enjoy the film. As to other fellow comic fans I'd say save your money and wait for it to come out on red box or for your cable provider to release it.

Iron Man 3 was a great sequel and follow-up to the current Marvel series. While a lot of people found hate for this movie primarily because of the surprise character twist in its villain, I thought it was a great way to take the story. Go see this movie, one of the best of the MCU!

Pros: Good supporting performances. Awesome performance by Ben Kingsley. Nice to see the other armors
Cons: Disposable performance by Paltrow. Bizarre PTSD/Anxiety attack plot line with Tony Stark character. Questionable plot/script decisions at several points in the movie.
Hard to go into detail about the movie's problems without going into spoiler territory but there was a good idea here, just poorly handled. Maybe if Tony had PTSD/Anxiety attacks about his experiences in Afghanistan then Tony's problems after New York would be understandable. Instead they come from nowhere. Oh, and War Machine fans deserve to be outraged.
tl;dr Best reason to see the movie is Ben Kingsley as the Madarin. Other than some genuinely funny one-liners, this is a miss as far as Iron Man goes.
