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.

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.

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.

This chapter certainly saves the franchise after the IM 2 fiasco. Iron Man provides a lot of excitement and new ways of putting on the "suit." Stark shows his real love for Pepper, but I am eager to see how he rebuilds his house and Iron Man for the future.
Just watech IM3 again. My wife and I both love it and I picked up more humor, action, and story this second time around. We both agree that this is the best Iron Man.

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.
