When Tony is zip-tied to the bed, he asks one of the guards the distance between Miami and Tennessee. The guard says 832 miles, which is correct for some parts of Tennessee. This means Tony's armor is ~832 miles away. Even assuming his armor travels at 1000 miles/hour, it would take his armor almost an hour to get to him, rather than the few minutes shown in the movie. Tony's armor would have to travel at almost 10,000 miles/hour to get to Tony in 5 minutes. The current airspeed record for a plane is only 2,193 miles/hour. Tony's armor, at the current airspeed record, would still take 23 minutes to get to him. See more »

An entertaining superhero film that surpassed its predecessors
Iron Man 3 is a fast-paced, entertaining sci-fi action thriller that turned out better than its disappointing predecessor.
This time around, there's no distracting Avengers subplot and the main focus goes to the main character instead. Once again, Robert Downey Jr. is at his best and fits his role perfectly as the arrogant, smart-ass Tony Stark by delivering sharp witty dialogue that make the film downright hilarious. Great round of applause for the people who's responsible for thinking up the various ways Tony can put on the suits in the film, well done!
However, the film crossed the borderline of science fiction and science fantasy. There are things in the film that's simply could not happen in reality under any circumstances, which some movie-goers might find it hard to accept. As a person who knows the cartoon and comics, the direction the film took for the characters and the "Extremis" story arc is questionable. Some Marvel fans/purists will find it unacceptable, but for casual movie-goers, the plot is great and it's really a personal story about the titular hero.
Iron Man 3 showed that it's not just a superhero film, but a smart comedy film as well. So, in the end, does the suit make the man or does the man make the suit? Well, you damn well know what the answer is after finish watching this film.
