My friend Sean wrote up a pretty nice review of Ironman 3. Personally, I enjoyed the movie in its entirety and loved the tech and gadgets involved. Sean writes:
I didn’t get its vibe for a half hour but eventually saw more emphasis on self-mocking comedy than action. It’s easy to have a misplaced vibe with Iron Man 3 since it is somehow a departure from the previous two. Do I think some might be disappointed that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) doesn’t gear up with his suit very often? Yeah, probably the younger kids that want to see more of the Iron Man suit and an abundance of flying action. This third installment seems to ask what Tony can accomplish with half his suit on. He’s merely Tony with a little extra protective gear.
