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
(at around 1h 5 mins) Tony instructs Gary to "jump on the roof, recalibrate the ISDNs, and pump it up by about forty percent." What Gary adjusts is a satellite dish, whereas ISDN connections are hardwired using the same telephone system that is used for what is no known as a "landline." Even if it were an ISDN connection, Dual ISDN PRI has a max downstream bandwidth of 2.94Mbps, but the speed test shows a speed of over 9Mbps. Neither ISDN nor Satellite Connections could be increased in speed by simply making adjustments to the receiving equipment, with the possible exception of repointing the dish to a different satellite, which would be done using the equipment inside the van. Additionally, the screen shows two different IP addresses displayed in the standard system of four numbers, but one of the numbers in the first address and two of the numbers in the second address are above 255, which is the upper limit of number in actual IP addresses.

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.

Hated it at first, I like it more each time I re-watch
The first time I saw this movie I really didn't like it, I had just come off the high of "The Avengers" and let me make it clear, this one isn't as good. That said it is significantly better than Iron Man 2 and that's because the story is deeper and direct. There's a lot less focus on explosions and fancy effects (although there is plenty of that) and more on dialogue and character development.
One thing I like about this movie is that you get to learn more about Tony Stark, as much as I loved his arrogance in IM1, 2 at the end of Avengers he was humbled and that continues in this one. On the one hand I love the suits and the fancy technology but it's Robert Downey's sarcasm and wit that make him so great for this franchise.
Yes there is a big plot twist but it by no means ruins the movie and while I was not a fan of the ending, you can see where things are going towards Avengers 2.
It may not be for you, my only advice is to make sure you watch it again. I was angry the first time I did and thought the movie was a joke, each additional time I've watched it I take something more from it and enjoy it a little more.
