Iron Man Three
Evie Totty: “It ruled.”
The first thing I gotta say is the writing was superb. I just IMDB'ed Shane Black and the things he's written... no wonder (includes Last Action Hero and The Last Boy Scout).
You know how trailers tend to give away the movie? Yeah well, JJ Abrams would be proud. A few things you just didn't see coming - and it was awesome.
There were of course laughs but the kind of laughs were genuine - it's hard to describe. The action scenes were great - though I had to suspend my disbelief a little and go 'ok Jarvis is just something really special so he can pull this off'.
I did see it in 3D because that was the only option at midnight and it was pretty cool. I'm not a huge fan of 3D however I do know that it can augment a film pretty well (like Up - it was better in 3D) so when I see it in 2D I'll be able to tell if it made that much of a difference.
Anyway, do yourself a favor and go see it. Superman's going to be hard pressed to top this.
Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”
At this point, probably nothing is going to top the terrific first Iron Man movie, but at least this is an improvement over the uninspiring second movie. It's full of humor in unexpected places, and has a very strong middle section where Tony Stark's raw talent and determination are the keys to his success, rather than his flying power-suit. If the movie cheats too much with physics and plausibility, well, that's not the worst sin for a comic book movie.
Erik Bates: “It ruled.”
I like the entitled-kid-with-baggage character that Tony Stark is. This whole franchise has been fantastic, in my opinion, and the third installment is no exception.
Samir Mehta: “It was ok.”
Robert Downey Jr. is losing his lustre and Paltrow lost hers years ago. Still, the movie makes do on a decent story and a witty script. It's not Marvel at its best but its ok blockbuster fare.
