Storyline

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

Although Tony Stark has created up to forty-two suits in this movie, he only dons a select few. These being Mark VII, XV (Sneaky), XVI (Nightclub), XXXIII (Silver Centurion), XL (Shotgun), and of course, XLII. He would have, at one point, worn the Mark XXII (Hot Rod) armor during the final battle, if it hadn't been taken out by an Extremis soldier a split second before he could suit up. See more »

Goofs

During the Malibu attack, Tony uses his repulser beams to push a piano and ignite a rocket at the helicopters but does not use the beams themselves even though they are powerful enough on their own. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Tony Stark: [Narrates] 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.

Tony Stark: Let's track this from the beginning.

An amazing experience.
19 April 2013 | by st-onedesignSee all my reviews

I had the pleasure of watching the film premiere last night and it blew me away. The film delivers in both storyline, and visual effects. From start to finish you are thrown in to lots of action, twists and turns. This film will not disappoint all you hardcore Marvel/iron man fans.There are some big twists, which really make this film that bit more exciting. For me the most impressive part of the movie were the visual effects, which you would expect from such a film as this. They really push the boat out with huge explosions, gun fights and all the usual extras. I do believe this will be one of the biggest films to date. Definitely worth an 8 out of 10.
