Iron Man 3

IM3 final from ColliderVideos on Vimeo. Spoiler free
Finally got out to see this, this weekend. After the The Avengers, writer-director Shane Black stepped into a very untenable situation with Iron Man 3.  While he had Robert Downey Jr., still my expectations for the third installment were pretty high.  But even though the cards were stacked against him, I’m happy to report that Iron Man 3 is more or less a success.  Not only is Black’s script very good and funny in spots, he’s also crafted some amazing action set pieces and created a villain that everyone is sure to be talking about.  Not sure if they'll like him, but they will certainly be talking about him.


Before you think I’m giving Iron Man 3 a two thumbs up I’m not. Unfortunately, I have a few nitpicks that bother me, otherwise Iron Man 3 would be close to perfect.  Since this is going to be spoiler free I can’t really get into them.  At some point down the road I’ll post my issues, and I really think most of you are going to agree with what I have to say.

Finally, Iron Man 3 has some great twists and turns.  I strongly advise you to not read any reviews until you’ve seen the movie for yourself. What I can say is that I'm so glad they focused on the man and not the suit.

Final thoughts. I felt like I was a kid reading my first Iron Man comic during portions of this film. It really doesn't get any better than that for me.
