The story line had potential but they over complicated it. RDJr was amazing! They could have nailed it in under two hours. Liked the first two better.

What a way to kick off the summer movie season!! Iron Man 3 was great on so many levels. From complex fight scenes, to a villain that defines villains, all polished off with the ubiquitous Tony Stark selfdom. Though I found that it could of bit a little shorter, that's my only complaint. I definitely reccomend it as a GO SEE!!

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.

The movie was okay all around. The action sequences were well orchestrated, and the humorous parts were well placed; however, the abundant focus on the weakness of Tony Stark, and even the inadequacy of the Iron Man suit was overplayed. And what they did to the Mandarine... unacceptable... The acting was, once again, above par. Robert Downey Jr IS Iron Man. Overall, Iron Man 3 is a good film. I recommend it, but beware the possibility of disappointment.

I was loving the movie until "the Mandarin twist". After that I was tempted to get up and leave. It was a insult to fans of the comic book and enjoyed the Mandarin vs Iron Man battles. I got aroundTony's endless anxiety attacks because of THE BATTLE OF NY and the pointless destruction of all the iron man suits at the end. The Mandarin was always a key villain of Iron Man and was a good battle of magic vs Technology. That storyline could have been better utilized with the Mandarins magical rings had and tied into the other magical/cosmic items in the Marvel Universe like the tesaract. Next time Disney decides to give Shane Black who created such nightmares as Last Boyscout the directors chair for a marvel movie please reconsider and pick someone who wont massacre the story. you had Ben Kinglsey a excellend actor play a key Villain and made him a English actor who was controlled by Killain a second rate villain who runs AIM - a organization that is a Stark Enterprises knockoff. So sad.
