Marvel's "Iron Man 3" pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man? Written by
According to the art book for the film, four other suits were considered to join the House Party Protocol, but were scrapped; A silver and gold suit with a pointed forehead supposedly named "Bullet", sported large thrusters on it's biceps. This suit's purpose was either deemed redundant or reworked as the Mark 40/Shotgun armor, which was designed for "Hyper Velocity". Two suits featuring a pair of close-combat weapons attached to their forearms (one with twin saw blades, and the other with dual hammer-like tools/Oldboy) were most likely not included due that the weapons they possessed did not fit with Iron Man's style. Finally, an unnamed suit with a desert camouflage color scheme apparently equipped with grappling hooks was scrapped due that Iron Man wouldn't necessarily need grapple hooks if he could already fly.

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 »
A famous man once said, 'We create our own demons.' Who said that? What does that even mean? Doesn't matter. I said it 'cause he said it. So now, he was famous and that basically getting said by two well-known guys. I don't, uh... I'm gonna start again.
Let's track this from the beginning.

"Things are different now, I have to protect the one thing that I can't live without. That's you."
Since Shane Black has signed to do Iron Man 3 I have been so excited for this picture, and i was already excited enough for Marvel phase 2 after the Avengers. Teaming up once again in his second outing with his Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang lead, and it does not disappoint.
A typical Super hero story, The international terrorist The Mandarin arrives on the scene and causes mayhem across the world, and may have help from some scientist acquaintances from Tony's past. For me Iron man's greatest strength is the casting of Robert Downey Jr. He encapsulates the character so well, the charisma,the humor, the ego so well. If this is to be his last appearance in a stand alone Iron Man. I for one can not think of anyone around at the moment who could take over the role,especially in the inevitable reboot of the franchise. Getting back to this film the cast of iron man has always been top notch with great support characters played by Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, and i could go on. This sequel hasn't gone down the usual route of recent sequels. Not going darker but keeping fun, not going bigger and louder (don't get me wrong there are some big action set pieces) but stripping Tony of the suit for large parts and focusing on the character. There is decent action to be seen, with the destruction of Tony Stark's home, for me being some of the best 5 minutes of intense action i have seen for quite some time. Also Iron man keeps it's good humor and puts in a decent amount of laughs.
The ending of the movie is where i find some problems, as it quite predictable and never built any sense of dread, that the bad guys could win. The bad guys in this film The Mandarin, Aldrich Killian and there Extremis Super soldiers. Which are a major improvement on previous Iron man villains. Seem very intimidating and imposing, but the motivation for there crimes seems a little fuzzy.
A good film by Shane Black in his first foray in to comic book/action, and if it is Downey Jr's last. It's not a bad way to bow out.
