Iron Man 3 is, perhaps by default, the best comic book superhero "threequel" yet.

Robert Downey Jr. is clearly having a blast playing a more sardonic Tony Stark.

Iron Man 3 has good things in it, enough to please the series' fans -- and yet too many drawbacks to win many converts.

Iron Man 3 is an decent movie that really should have been far better with this pedigree.

Downey is a brilliant actor who somehow manages to portray Tony Stark as traumatised without losing the character's laidback and comedic quality.

Writer/director Shane Black... brings sharp snarky humor and some welcome psychological depth to the Iron Man franchise, which faded in an exhausting second installment after the exhilarating original.

The film's true strength is a snappy, whip-smart wit

The most mature of the "Iron Man" films by far.

Marvel Studios lets director Black off the leash for this third installment, and while the result is edgier, sexier, and more dangerous than what has come before, you may not recognize Tony Stark as the man from the long-running comic.

Funnier and smoother, more surprising, defter at being creative while still working within the confines of the superhero formula.

It's Iron Man 3's sneaky exposť of superhero cool--on the outside, a wisecracking warrior; on the inside, an anxiety-attacked guy who tries to insulate himself with arrogance--that brings this blockbuster down to sympathetic size.

There's little doubt that Iron Man Three, in its early stages, fares a whole lot better than one might've anticipated...

A generous step up from its predecessor, the various twists aren't exactly as expected, but you'll still have fun getting there.

Packed with virtually non-stop action from start to finish, "Iron Man 3" is the best film in the "Iron Man" series and among the best Marvel-inspired films ever

Features an interesting, angst-ridden psychological sub-text rarely found in blockbuster films.

This may be the lightest, most entertaining cinematic exploration of post-traumatic stress disorder yet.

The finale is explosive, but Iron Man has some rusty patches too

Sean Means

The way Black surrenders the movie's edginess to the generic onslaught of flashy visuals is a mild disappointment.
