Consensus: With the help of its charismatic lead, some impressive action sequences, and even a few surprises, Iron Man 3 is a witty, entertaining adventure and a strong addition to the Marvel canon.

Iron Man 3 has good things in it, enough to please the series' fans -- and yet too many drawbacks to win many converts.

Iron Man 3 feels like an exploitative mulching of present-day anxieties. The script is ambitious but not wise enough to be rightfully cathartic. It's more Cuisinart than art.

Iron Man 3 may not feel as incomplete as a Gene Simmons solo record, but it does leave you wishing the rest of the band had come along for the ride.

The trouble is that, as the plot quickens, any cleverness withdraws, to make way for the firecrackers of the climax. That is not Black's forte, and his movie duly slumps into a mess.

The action, directed by Shane Black, ranges from passable to interminable.

The best entry of the trilogy. Downey Jr. is once again sensational. [Full review in Spanish]

Shane Black excels at writing witty, self-referential, pop-infused banter, and there is no actor working today who is better suited to delivering it than Robert Downey Jr.

Black is good at giving his heroes a morbid, self-hating edge and even better at coming up with hateable villains.

See the 2D version if you can and enjoy a commercial film that is certainly good -- but some way short of great.

The fact that it manages to be entertaining, especially in its first half, compensates for a flawed script that even comes up with a pathetic post-traumatic… More

Just about watchable. 6/10.
Ross Collins
Better than the previous sequel, particularly the dialogue, but not by much... 3D was OK, but as others have pointed out: it's ridiculously dark.

I wish it didn't feel so much like an episode of an Iron Man TV series, falling just short of creating a fully fleshed-out arc for its central character… More
