I loved the first two Iron Man films. In fact I have loved at the time of writing this ever Marvel studios made film, except this one. Iron Man 3 was such a huge disappointment from start to finish I found it difficult to even wonder how it happened though the change of director from Jon Favreau to Shane Black who also had a part in the script as the most likely culprit.

So where to start? At the start. The first song that played was Eiffel 65 - Blue during the opening credits. What happened to AC/DC? The soundtrack for the whole film was pretty bad, even the original score was lacking any memorable moments.

That on it's own couldn't truly ruin the film but sadly it's not the only problem this movie has. The storyline follows on from the events of Marvels Avengers with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) being rather traumatized at the events, struggling to sleep building dozens of new Iron Man suits. During all this a terrorist known as the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) rises making threats at Stark.

The story makes a mockery of the beloved Iron Man villain the Mandarin in what, I assume, Shane Black thought was a clever way and while I praise Ben Kingsley's performance in the role I found it insulting and pointless. On the other half they integrate the Extremis storyline from the comics as well as Tony Stark's ability to remote control suits from his armoury but what should have been a pretty thunderous finale simply turned into a dull thud when his suits were as useful as paper dolls. There were special effects everywhere at the end but it felt so hollow.

So much of the film was also surprisingly slow. The idea of the film was to focus on the character of Stark rather than Iron Man but I feel they forgot Stark is Iron Man.

The first two films had good plot. This is just OK – borderline boring. It’s as if they wanted get this out just to make money.

Not as good as Iron Man 2. It took a while to get started and then never really amounted to very much that hadn't been done in the previous films. Quite disappointing.

I think this is the best "Iron Man" until now! I liked it and, even more important (and quite incredible in fact), my wife liked it even MORE! Below you will find more of my impressions. This review in principle is FREE OF SPOILERS.

"Iron Man 3" is a merry, cheerful adventure, very fast paced, with excellent fighting scenes, but mostly relying on humor and excellent dialogs, full of typicall Tony Stark's jokes, half acid, half bitter but always pretty funny. Quite obviously this film has for only ambition to entertain us - and it succeeds in doing just that.

The story is mostly about Tony's past coming back to kick him in the butt with the maximum speed and strength, forcing him to visit places even more exotic than the wormhole in "Avengers", like deep ocean and rural Tennessee - and no more will be said. There are some darker moments, but general mood of this film is light - this is an amusement ride, not the voyage to the heart of the darkness.

Robert Downey Jr offers here to his public a spotless, brilliant performance, even better than in previous parts and "Avengers" - and honestly, I think here he is even better (funnier) than in his "Sherlock Holmes" franchise.

Gwyneth Paltrow is a very, very beautiful woman - but in this film she is much more than that. She is HOT, she is smoking hot, she is burning hot, she is lava hot, she literally bursts in flames so hot she is, in fact she is so hot that by moments she outshines the principal hero...))) No, for real, it is not an exaggeration - I will even hasard an opinion that in this film she reaches the degree of hotness never before attained by any other Hollywood actress...)))

Guy Pearce does well in this film.

Warning: Minor spoiler information included

My husband and I loved the first Iron Man and enjoyed the second one too. The third one was disappointing, there were gaps in the story where clearly it was expected that you had watched 'Avengers' (which we had not done!). The story line was poor and I agree with another reviewer regarding the completely pointless aspect of the 'Mandarin', as for the bad guys, what exactly were they trying to achieve? World domination or covering up a faulty product?

The relationship between Pepper and Stark was weak and dry and added no depth to the story, and when Pepper supposedly arose from the dead what was Starks reaction? Did he rush to take her in his arms? Did he shout for joy? Did he go weak at the knees in shock? None of the above, just asked her why she didn't wear the cropped top at home...this could/should have been amusing, but wasn't.

I may watch this again if I get bored enough, but somehow doubt it, I think it will probably end up getting dusty on a bookshelf somewhere, I don't recommend buying it.

Moderately Good Entertainment but no more than that. Just a day at the office for Iron Man, job done and film in the can and away home for steak and chips. This is not going to set the heather alight in any way but if you like your comics and you like superheroes and you like Robert Downey Jr and you don't want to think too much about it and you just want to be "entertained" then this fully fits the bill. Good fun but it isn't going to be nominated for the Oscars or live on in your memory for a long time. Just a bit of fluffy lightweight fun.
