In an attempt to bring Tony Stark back to basics, his latest outing is a strangely bloated affair that still manages to be an incredibly fun thanks to the hilarious comedy and exhilarating action.

The Iron Man films are so much better when Iron Man isn't onscreen.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5

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?!
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

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.
April 14, 2016
A picture of absolute infectiousness - and a nearly perfect piece of summer entertainment.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
July 13, 2015
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.
May 12, 2015
A smirky, sardonic sensibility smuggled in by Shane Black is almost enough to cure these summertime blues.
April 23, 2015
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.0/10

Robert Downey Jr. is clearly having a blast playing a more sardonic Tony Stark.
December 17, 2013
The movie works mainly due to its acting.

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

December 17, 2013
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.
September 22, 2013
The film's true strength is a snappy, whip-smart wit
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 14, 2013
The most mature of the "Iron Man" films by far.
August 12, 2013
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.
