Movie Review: Iron Man 3

Movie: Iron Man 3

Review by Lauren

IMDB Summary: When Tony Stark's world is torn apart by a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin, he starts an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution.

Review: To be honest, I think this was the first Iron Man film I actually saw in theaters. It's definitely a great one to see on the big screen, though. It might be the third addition to the Iron Man series, but I think it's my favorite. If you haven't seen The Avengers, you might want to do so first, as they do reference the big battle in in that film. After what happened, Tony Stark starts experiencing anxiety issues and it makes him more human and relatable, which I really appreciated.

Don't worry, though, the classic Tony Stark humor is still there and on high gear. Iron Man 3 is just a nice mixture of humor, heart, and action. Perfect blend for a superhero film, if you ask me.

One of my favorite actors in this film has to be Ben Kingsley, who plays The Mandarin, a terrorist that Iron Man is obviously obsessed with taking down. Kingsley plays The Mandarin extremely well, but I can't go into too much detail because there are some great surprises involving him. You definitely don't want to be the last one to know, or have it spoiled for you, so make sure you see the movie soon!!

Overall, I highly enjoyed this one and I already can't wait for more Tony Stark/Iron Man. I guess I'll just have to see this one again...and impatiently wait for Avengers 2.

Wow! You already saw this! I can't wait to check it out. I am happy to hear that it is better than the last one, IM2 was kind of a flop. Love Robert Downing!

I absolutely adored the first tow Iron Man films, so I'm so glad that you enjoyed this too! I really need to make the time to go watch this. Also I'm glad I'm not the only one eagerly anticipating Avengers 2! :)

I don't think I have watched any of the Iron Man movies. I didn't even know this one was coming out until my nephew begged to go. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Having been disappointed by Iron Man part 2 I'm hoping this one will prove better.

Oh, man! I want to see this so bad! I've heard such good things... my husband, dad, and brother totally went WITHOUT me this weekend. Grr...

Yeah, I loved this one too!! I was pleasantly surprised because the second one kind of bored me in parts, but they really went all out for this one. I was shocked by the surprise twists involving the Mandarin and Pepper... loved it!! I can't believe we have to wait so long for the Avengers sequel.

People keep saying great things about this one. In fact, a friend of mine saw it just last night and really enjoyed it. I loved the second one (the first not so much) and I'm very hopeful about this too. I missed Tony and his sense of humor. Plus, Robert is just so amazing!
