It's nothing but a collection of superhero clichés made marginally palatable by Robert Downey Jr.'s endless charm and charisma.

This film resembles its protagonist Tony Stark: its overblown, convoluted and seemingly disconnected to anything that has come before it.

The first film might have been able to get by on charm alone, but the mechanical feeling of this entry will more than likely leave you cold and indifferent.

A superhero in film is only as good as his villain. And that's a critical problem for Iron Man 3.
May 3, 2013
A movie so block-headed, so aimlessly busy, you'd think Michael Bay directed the thing. Actually, that would be an upgrade.

Are you sick of superheroes? No, of course you are not, cinema audiences are lapping up any caped crusader movies. But I am, especially when Tony Stark is an angst ridden shambles suffering from performance anxiety. What's so super about that?

It's hard not to wish Downey were sparring with his costumed comrades again, instead of trading barbs with the far-less-colorful cast members-old and new-of this busy, sporadically diverting sequel.

With superhero movies, over time the mythology gets junked up with tertiary characters and leftover storylines. Tony Stark & Co. have taken the Iron Man franchise as far as it can go.

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

Iron Man 3 feels like an exploitative mulching of present-day anxieties. The script is ambitious but not wise enough to be rightfully cathartic. It's more Cuisinart than art.

It's not without its payoffs; I enjoyed a lot of it. But overall last year's Avengers delivered the bombastic goods more efficiently than this year's Marvel.

The third iteration of a franchise that began so well becomes a hollow hymn to martial gadgetry. The suits and story clank in unison.

Shane Black's perfunctory, fatigued film will suffice for the fans who have to have their regular cinematic superhero fix, but will leave others generally unmoved.

Iron Man loses his clothes more often than a Kardsashian.

Iron Man 3 isn't a Blockbuster, it's a Blandbuster -- boring and safe and riddled with plot holes and filled with product placement.

At this point, franchise fatigue definitely takes over.

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

May 23, 2013
A regression in the usual strong work from Marvel Studios, Iron Man 3 suffers from director Shane Black's mishandling of this popular superhero character.

Iron Man 3 is a primer on how not to handle a superhero sequel--but Paltrow's abs look great!

Stupid and messy. The Most Beautiful Woman in the World has to go. Pepper must take "Happy" with her.
