Tanner's Review of Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)
The change in director is prominently beneficial, as Shane Black rights the ship and deviates Iron Man 3's story from the Avengers arc and the lackluster Iron Man 2 without having to scrap either one unfaithfully. Though a few subplots are lazily resolved or forgotten about completely, the plot stays afloat with bold liberties and self-awareness as action set pieces impress and lead cast members humor the audience, despite a dwindling script. This is the best flick in the trilogy, and though its makers probably don't intend for it to be the final entry, it surely wraps up the Iron Man saga appropriately an emotional journey for Tony Stark.
