Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: By even posing questions of identity, the film creates the kind of jeopardy we can believe in, and for a superhero movie, that is an accomplishment in and of itself.
Fresh: It's a confidently tongue-in-cheek piece of blockbuster engineering, sweetly calibrated to Downey's cavalier appeal and to Kingsley's oddball interjections.
Fresh: Snappy dialogue, momentarily startling plot twists and lots of stuff blowing up.
Rotten: The trouble is that, as the plot quickens, any cleverness withdraws, to make way for the firecrackers of the climax. That is not Black's forte, and his movie duly slumps into a mess.
The franchise had a chance to improve from Iron Man 2 and failed
Though it had its moments, Iron Man 3 was pretty disappointing and made Iron Man 2, which I was also disappointed with, look much, much, better. It follows Tony Stark as he deals with multiple anxiety attacks and nights with little sleep after the traumatic events of The Avengers. But as he tries to overcome these personal issues, a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin rises with a plan to tear apart Stark’s world and making a message out of his destruction. I’m not surprised that Stark is having trouble moving passed the battle in New York. I mean he destroyed a nuke in another world for crying out loud. If I were him, I would be in the same boat. So, therefore, his recovering was understandably a major part of the film’s process.
My main gripe with this third installment revolved around the Mandarin and my message about him to the viewers out there who dislike spoilers is this: he’s there but he’s not there. If you’re confused, just go see the movie and you’ll hopefully understand what I'm saying.
The other problem I had was the action-packed climax. Exceptionally, there was too much action rather than too little. The explosions and fight sequences were all over the place and it was just way too loud for me. However, I was awed when all of those Iron Man suits propelled down to the battle. There were other action sequences I enjoyed a lot as well such as when the Mandarin’s army took down Tony Stark’s mansion. Another aspect of this film that I enjoyed was the hysterical humor and that was one of the main aspects that kept me from giving Iron Man 3 a lower rating.
I’ve also heard people say Iron Man 3 darker than the first two and that is true. However, I wouldn’t consider it to be dark film in general. Unlike the first Iron Man in 2008, it’s not a must-see superhero film but it’s still worth a shot. It’s funny, fairly entertaining and occasionally awesome.
The best Iron Man ever
Robert Downey Jr. is one of my all-time favorite actors and I especially love the Iron Man movies. I'll be honest and say that seeing the trailor I was not so enthusiastic to go see this movie. But, it was so worth it. Iron Man 3 is by far the best in the series. It's full action packed fun and of course comedic jokes by the hilarious Robert Downey Jr. Anybody who loves Iron Man will love this even more. Iron Man 3 is the probably gonna go down as one of the best movies of 2013.
Iron Man 3
I am a big fan of Iron Man! I think this movie is a must have. If you're big on story lines, and hidden meanings in movies, then this is the movie for you.
