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 Jawadjee

Trivia

(At around eleven minutes) Tony tells a young child with glasses that he loved him in A Christmas Story (1983). Peter Billingsley, who played Ralphie in A Christmas Story (1983), was an Executive Producer on Iron Man (2008), and played a small role in it. See more »

Goofs

(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.

Excellent comic action film; watch it!
10 December 2013 | by MovieSonicSee all my reviews

It took me ages to watch this because of all the conflicting reviews. I thought it was going to be as bad/boring as Terminator Salvation or The Dark Knight Rises.

This film was fantastic! Easily the best of the Iron Mans (although the first will always be 'the best', this one is repeat-watch-worthy).

Now that I know how awesome this film is, I think the negative reviews make more sense: they seem to focus on things like 'but the bad guy isn't the same as the comic' or 'that's not believable' etc. so let's ignore those because that's just irrelevant. The film can still be good without sticking 100% to the comics! I can't believe some people complain about the realism when we're dealing with magic and flying iron man suits but okay, let's mark the film down because the hero didn't break his back quite enough in that scene?! I've given this a ten because the story progresses brilliantly, there are so many extra scenes included that you would normally expect to be edited out to keep the running time down but the fact that they're left in means the film has a well-rounded feel to it. Contrary to some opinions, I like that the woman has the chance to save the day instead of 'just' being eye-candy (Gwyneth wears the most amazing white office power-suit ever; congrats to the designer), it is a bit patronising to just have one scene of saving the day but it's better than nothing. One of the bad guys (Guy Pearce) is building a great profile for himself as being someone to watch out for as he might just steal the show! This film had it all, yes there's a cute kid, but this is Iron Man so it never gets cheesy and actually there are some hilarious scenes between Robert Downey Jr and the kid. There's loads of humour and the action is great.

Everyone gets just the right amount of screen time in my opinion and I'm actually going to watch this again which is rare for me.

10/10 as it's an excellent film - not perfect but excellent.
