Iron Man 3 Review

Director: Shane Black
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pierce, Ben Kingsley

Iron Man 3 is a lot darker than the previous films as Tony Stark struggles to cope in the aftermath of New York (The Avengers) and the need to protect Pepper, distracting himself by building Iron Man suits. However when an unlikely figure from Stark’s past returns and threatens his new life, all he is left with is his own ingenuity, hilarious one-liners and the help of a young boy from Tennessee.
The plot is fantastic and so are the characters, though I think Ben Kingsley should have had a bigger part. I won’t tell you why, spoilers.
I also want to touch on how far 3D films have come in the past few years. Before I never really liked live-action films in 3D as they didn’t look right and people were fuzzy round the edges. In animation it’s fantastic, especially in Toy Story 3 (2010) but now it works in live-action movies as well. The images are so sharp and there’s so much depth it’s like you really are in the film with the characters, experiencing what they do.
