After the events of "The Avengers", "Iron Man 3" is sort of a unofficial sequel to the summer hit. It follows Tony Stark (Downey Jr) who is dealing with his own personal problems while he embarks on a journey to find answers to his enemy's terrorist attacks.
My big problem with the first two Iron Man's was the huge amounts of unnecessary humor, we still have ALOT of humor in this movie, but it was smarter and made up for the movies slow pace. It did have me distracted a few times when i was torn between it being a comedy or a action movie considering this movie had a lot less action then the past two films. The movie has its moments, their are very entertaining action sequences and some very smart one liners. Also the twist on the villain was subtle enough to work without ruining the whole movie.
Its in between these big moments that lay my big problems. The movie lingers at a slow pace while the characters were saying fast dialog, it just felt awkward. Even though refreshing at times the comedy just kept coming, again i was confused on if i was watching a action, or a comedy and it felt to one sided to be both.
It had its moments, but their was just not enough for me to grip on it. Was it entertaining for the most part? Yes, but it went in one ear and out the other.
