Ok, soooo many of you know that I’m a HUGE fan of Iron Man, in fact he’s probably my favorite super hero… with that said I went into Iron Man 3 with as little bias a possible. Iron Man 1 was AWESOME, 2 was good but could have been better but 3 definitely brought back that pizazz and made you fall in love with the characters again.
In the beginning the storyline may be slightly slower for some… but I think it was necessary to build the story, anticipation and understanding of what Tony Stark aka Iron Man is going through. If you’ve been following the Marvel franchise movies, you’ll realize they are all connected, which I love, and this movie opens up after what happened in New York with the aliens in the last Avengers movie. I enjoyed that this movie wasn’t completely predictable and that all the good scenes were not shown in the trailers. We meet a new villain The Mandarin, who is working to push the war on terror… something we can relate to in the world we live.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Pepper Potts, gets to show the heroine in her… Girl Power! She added a new appeal and dimension to the movie, which allowed for us to see some sensitivity in Tony Starks (Robert Downey Jr.). I’m hoping that Marvel starts showing more of our Super Heroines in this light, I’m looking forward to seeing Natasha Romanoff become Black Widow… hopefully in the 2nd Avengers movie.
Iron Man‘s New Suits
In this one we get to see some more fun technology from Iron Man, new suits that were AWESOME… we meet new characters and old faves like Happy or James Rhodes (Don Cheadle) are back on the scene. Even Rhodey gets a new suit as War Machine, now known as Iron Patriot.

All in all, the action was great and storyline was jam-packed… I feel the NEED to watch it again because I know I probably missed a few things, lol. If you can get through the slow start, this film is one you’re sure to love. I definitely recommend giving it a watch.
