Iron Man 3 wasn’t quite what I thought it was going to be, but it was still a good time at the movies.
While we’ll see Iron Man again in the Avengers sequels, this will be the final solo adventure for the Armored Avenger. I guess I thought IM3 would be more in the vein of Dark Knight Rises, but this movie was a bit more fun and not nearly as dark. Even when Tony is at his lowest, he’s never really alone… not that any of his super powered buddies show up. (This movie makes you wonder why he doesn’t call in Captain America or SHIELD about a dozen times.)
This movie has impressive scope, action (in ways I didn’t see coming from characters/actors I didn’t think were this bad ass capable), visual effects and a story that’ll keep you in your seat. I wouldn’t recommend jumping in if you missed the first two installments, but Iron Man 3 isn’t just a genre flick – it’s a quality action movie. I give it an 8 out of 10.
