IM3 is sure to sate its fan base, but it won't endear a new crowd.

The Iron Man films are so much better when Iron Man isn't onscreen.

Beyond all the explosions and action set pieces and 3D wizardry, you can still hear a writer with a distinctive, entertaining voice.

The third installment of 'Iron Man', while breezy and fun, doesn't really deliver on the fun of flying like the first one did, nor much of anything else, really. But so what?!

The latest Iron Man has everything you'd expect from a movie with "3" in its title: more fireballs, badder bad guys and a gazillion battle-armor suits. But it's also much, much funnier, thanks perhaps to the presence of director Shane Black.

Iron Man 3 is genuine good fun. Nothing to swoon about, but it's satisfactorily entertaining from beginning to end.

A picture of absolute infectiousness - and a nearly perfect piece of summer entertainment.

Iron Man 3 soars above first sequel and might even rival the 2008 debut for overall entertainment value. You laugh, you sit on the edge of your seat, and you marvel (yes, Marvel) at some of the visual effects.

All in fun, the clatter and concussion of action tropes as syncopated as the dialogue.

With Jon Favreau, director of the previous Iron Man films, still around in his sidekick role as Happy Hogan, continuity is maintained, but Black does bring his own, mostly comic chops to the saga.

A smirky, sardonic sensibility smuggled in by Shane Black is almost enough to cure these summertime blues.

While Iron Man 3 is a huge improvement over the second installment, certain story elements that rip the comics to shreds will anger many fans.

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.

The movie works mainly due to its acting.

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
