Iron Man 3 3D

Robert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark in the third instalment of Marvel's Iron Man. Largely confined to his workshop after the events of The Avengers, Stark is sidelined from superhero duties until he calls out violent terrorist The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). Pausing a campaign of anti-U.S. attacks, The Mandarin takes a personal interest in Stark, who soon finds his whole life threatened by a foe more powerful than he or the government anticipated.

The once over-confident Tony Stark is still rattled by the battle of New York in which he helped to repel an alien invasion. Anxious and having trouble sleeping, Stark obsessively works on his Iron Man suits, to the consternation of girlfriend Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow). Potts is soon in the firing line along with a scientist and former lover (Rebecca Hall), after Stark challenges international terrorist The Mandarin, who turns his deadly attention towards Stark in a spectacular attack on his home. As The Mandarin returns to his plan to strike at the heart of American politics, Stark must overcome his own battered psyche, familiar faces from his past and a new wave of formidable weaponry to stop him. Written and directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang). Based on Warren Ellis' comic book arc Extremis.

Stages a few undeniably impressive, super-sized setpieces.

Funny, twisty and thrilling, this is shellhead’s most entertaining solo flight to date. It’s also an impressive pace-setter for this summer’s barrage of big movies.

It’s undeniably entertaining – and worth seeing for Kingsley alone – with the misfires never fully overshadowing the moments of glory.

Black has an instinctive feel for balancing action set-pieces against the passages of soap-opera that are required to make them matter.

Downey is at his superhero genius best here, rattling off dialogue both clever and boilerplate with non-repetitive aplomb.

Black proves the perfect blacksmith, forging smart new tech and scenarios for the swaggering super-genius.

This movie had the best balance of suspense, action and comedy in the series so far. Tony Stark finds himself doing battle with a new villain who is a pawn in the bigger plot of an evil scientist. Some great witty banter as always with a fascinating villain and a kid who plays an important part in the story. Stark makes a careless comment early on which...

Yes, everyone knows I'm bias when it comes to graphic novels on the big screen, and Ironman3 was no exception, it was awesome! Great follow on from 1 & 2, as well as The Avengers. The story line is again a growth of Tony Stark and his future, normal for a graphic novel, not so much for the silver screen. Amazing action scenes with little music to distract,...

Never - everything in this movie is over the top in regards to production and the amount oF suits he now has - but its what makes it IRON MAN 3 - didnt need the 3D to make it an enjoyable action movie - definetly a future watch when its released on DVD :)

Possibly best of the three, Ben Kingsley steals the show. Lots of fun. If I had one gripe it would be.... Well actually, that would give some of the plot away...

I went into this movie expecting it to be great... and it was. What a relief. Pepper gets to kick some butt (and flaunt her abs), Tony Stark is the ultimate anti-hero and the action, when it arrives, is spectacular. A lot of fun.

After the blockbuster hit of 2012, "The Avengers", Marvel Films steamrolls into their second phase of films that will next conclude at the "Avengers" sequel. Leading the charge again is Iron Man, the character who started off the successful chain of films that have been released so far, involving characters from the Marvel Universe. With two films, and...

I have been a massive fan of the Iron Man movies ever since the first was released back in 2008. I liked how relatively grounded the movies felt, well, as grounded as something can be when it's about a man flying around in a suit of armour, and also fighting aliens in The Avengers. But when it comes to Iron Man's standalone movies, I prefer his enemy to be...

Some brilliant actors - Robert Downey Jr, superb. Ben Kingsley, AWESOME, Guy Pierce, ok, Gweneth Paltrow, improved as the movie progressed (otherwise she was a bit dim). I loved it. Right level of action. Right level of evil. Right level of "American military is stupid". See it. Buy the popcorn, the icecream and enjoy the movie.

First, the good news. This is a fine film -funny, exciting, spectacular, with a genuine comic book feel, Ben Kingsley is great as the Mandarin.He steals the picture, and even outshines Downey in their scenes together. Unfortunately, the Mandarin need to be on screen a bit more - maybe Downey was a bit uneasy at being blasted off the screen by KIngsley's...
