Although I think it wasn't as good as the second Iron Man, I think that this was good in its own right. It had enough action, and kept moving through the entire movie. There weren't any slow parts except in the very beginning, and although it was a little over 2 hours, it sure didn't feel that way. It was good.

Very action packed, but one would expect nothing less from Iron Man. Fun for the whole family as there was almost no bad language. Tony Stark was his same egoistical self which makes for some great laughs. Ben Kingsley was an unexpected addition. Worth seeing.

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.

The only reason I'm recommending this movie is because it is Iron Man and should be seen on the big screen. But the problem is that this movie wasn't very good in comparison to the Avengers or the first Iron Man movie. There was too much going on and the ending was a bit contrived and unnecessary...I won't give it away. It's fun to see this movie in a room full of fans and it truly does have many comical moments that make it enjoyable, but so much of it is "unbelieveable" as super hero movies go that it makes the film seem like a joke. Seriously, iron man suit parts flying 850 miles? I won't give away anything else but that was plain stupid. There are some other silly moments too. Overall, it was ok but the action sequences moved waaaay too fast for any human body to endure. So I was disappointed.

Was rather disappointed with this film. IMO, not as good as 1 & 2. Decent action but story not that great. Robert Downey has the role down pat and the attitude was not as stuck up as in the first two films. I love Pepper though. She is the best. Should have kept the original Colonel though, switch actors doesn't do the story line smooth.
