Iron Man 3 Review



Iron Man 3, directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, and Guy Pearce, completes one of Marvel’s strongest trilogies. The arc is so clear: Iron Man is about the creation of a hero. Iron Man 2 is about his deconstruction. And in Iron Man 3, is about his reconstruction.

Everything is stripped away from Tony Stark, he loses his house, his suit, and even his mind. It shows us what he’s made of. He’s humbled, and it’s neat to see how he’s changed since the flashback in 1999 to the present. His character arc is fully realized and I applaud the writers for their thoughtful and creative treatment.

The antagonists were a thrill to watch, and the mystery intriguing. The pace was very well done–with enough action and tension in every scene to keep your eyes glued to the screen, but never at the cost of character development. My favorite action scenes were when he fought without his suit–it was infinitely creative.

This film had great humor. I think a multitude of sins can be looked over if a movie makes me laugh. And Tony’s sharp wit and a few other performances had me chuckling. There were a few continuity issues that cropped up, but overall the plot held together well.

I highly recommend this incredible film. 5-Stars.
