Robert Downey Jr. Is great, as always. Everyone else too. Ben Kingsley, hilarious.

I really wanted to like this film. I really did. Shane Black is a great Director (If you haven't seen Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, go see it. It's awesome). But this film is the most unfocused Marvel movie yet, a frightening sign of things to come. The story is the weakest out of the three movies, and oftentimes doesn't really take itself as seriously as I wanted it too. Something happens 3/4ths into the movie that disappointed me greatly. I won't give it away here, but it has to do with the main villain, and is a perfect example of why the humor fails. It seemed more like a parody of an Iron Man film than it did an actual Iron Man film. For the first time, I was also tiring of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark. His schtick is becoming monotonous, he makes decisions that are completely out of character for him, and he comes across as an a-hole, not the witty, charming playboy philanthropist of previous films. Overall, this is one of Marvel's weakest efforts.

If you haven't read the source material and aren't in love with the Mandarin or other characters, you will probably enjoy this film enough.
It's not a bad movie, just not a true to the source Iron Man film. And I'm not going to sit here and rant and rave, but they took liberties that made NO sense, and ruined an arch-enemy of one of the most loved superheroes in the Marvel universe. Just sad really. But If you don't know anything about the source material, I'm sure you will enjoy the film.

Great movie. Action packed right from the start. I'm sure most of the humor went over the younger heads, but it still fit the events perfectly. I don't know what the plans are for the future of Iron Man, but I do hope the saga continues. Would also like to see another reunion of the Super Hero Gang...Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Hawk Eye, and Black Widow.

Good movie, but I don't recommend seeing it in the theater if you get restless easy. It was VERY long. I got up, went next door to Bath and Body Works for a break.
