I can see where some diehard fans might be put off by some of the jokes but I thought the movie was a great balance of action, drama/tension and fun. Just when you think there can't be more, there is. The story was very satisfying and is a great addition to the series but is also very watchable if you haven't seen previous installments. Downey Jr. definitely didn't disappoint and I thought the kid was hilarious. There's one scene that I laughed and laughed and I never laugh out loud at movies. Kingsley was also fantastic as well as Guy Pearce. Of course the CGI was awesome and in hindsight I think this would have been worth seeing in 3D. We don't always want to spend the extra money but this probably would have been great. Might have to see it again . . . which we also never do (in the theater). Stay for ALL the credits!

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.

Excellent! A definite "Must Go!) Loved the non-stop action. Good story and it was nice to see Tony Stark's tender side. It was a lot of fun and I look forward to the next installment.

Sometimes sequels can be such a letdown. Not so with Iron Man 3. Although the plot seems to have elements of various other movies incorporated, it is still a fun movie to just sit back and get lost in. Don't think too hard about it, just enjoy the ride!

If you know nothing about the comic book, you will enjoy this movie. For me, it was good, but things were changed where they shouldn't have.
