After a bitter enemy known as the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) reduces his world to rubble, Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) is more dependent on the suits than ever. Tony must rely entirely on instinct and ingenuity to protect the people he loves.

Is The Plot Interesting?

I thoroughly enjoyed the plot of Iron Man 3. I thought it was a perfect way to continue the story and evolve the characters that we have grown to love. The story adds another dimension to all of the characters.


Is The Acting Good?

Robert Downey Jr. was just as good, if not slightly better, in Iron Man 3 as he was in previous Marvel movies. The person who surprised me this time was Gwyneth Paltrow, she was good in the other Iron Man movies but she was particularly good in this one.

Is The Directing Good?

I loved the way Shane Black directed Iron Man 3 but I can’t decide who I like better as a director, Jon Favreau or Shane Black. They both brought something different to the Iron Man movies.


Is The Cinematography Good?

The tone and the mood of the movie go together so well with the story because of the cinematography. I enjoyed the style and execution of this movie as well; it added to the overall effect.

Is It Worth Watching?

I think Iron Man 3 is a great addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and has ended the Iron Man trilogy really well, although there are rumours that an Iron Man 4 is in the works which I think is a brilliant idea.


Things are different now, I have to protect the one thing that I can’t live without. That’s you.
