When Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) finds his entire world reduced to rubble, he must use all his ingenuity to survive, destroy his enemy and somehow protect those he loves. But a soul-searching question haunts him: Does the man make the suit...or does the suit make the man?
Plenty of crash-bang-wallop in this gloriously silly over-the-top comic-book romp
- Iron Man 3 review by RP
Yet another outing for Robert Downey Jr as brash, fast talking, opinionated genius inventor Tony Stark aka Iron Man. Plenty of crash-bang-wallop, lots of special effects (it really deserves to be seen on a big screen), wise cracking, and really bad baddies. And there is a small role for great actor Ben Kingsley - perhaps he needed the money?
The storyline is too silly to summarise here, but suffice to say that it all seems reasonable for a blockbuster comic-character movie :)
Just allow yourself to be swept along with the action and you may find that you quite enjoy it - it's a gloriously silly over-the-top comic-book romp for boys. 4/5 stars.
