Description from IMDB: “When Tony Stark’s world is torn apart by a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin, he starts an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution.”
Mmmm…action. I love these kinds of movies. Slick special effects. Colorful characters. Stuff blowing up. What more does one need?
Iron Man 3 is much like its predecessors. This installment lands Tony Stark in the middle of a mess of problems. Apparently, he hasn’t been sleeping well since the whole ordeal with the Avengers. He’s off his game, working on a prototype suit that isn’t quite up to the usual par. Pepper doesn’t appreciate the two-story stuffed bunny rabbit he buys her. One of his previous female conquests shows up on his doorstep. Etc. etc. etc.
Side note: I would LOVE a two-story tall stuffed bunny rabbit. What would I do with it? Who knows!
Tony spends much of the movie trying to recover from the attack that costs him everything. He’s very resourceful, and he still has the air of entitlement, which is always amusing. His complete devotion to Pepper is very sweet, and, of course, he still kicks a whole bunch of ass.
I like it. Good times.
Iron Man 3 gets an A.
