With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.

  • Owen Gleiberman

    Iron Man 3 is an ominously exciting, shoot-the-works comic-book spectacular.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Thanks to Downey’s genius, Iron Man 3 is equally terrific, whether Tony’s fending off an army of villains or bantering with a kid in a shed on a cold, snowy night.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    A madly creative, darkly comical, and fiendishly self-aware actioner with muscle to spare.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • William Goss

    Downey, Jr. remains a rightfully cherished smartass figure, having as much a ball with Black’s one-liners as he had in “KKBB,” and he sells Tony’s newfound post-traumatic vulnerability more credibly than the film does.

  • Richard Corliss

    Besides rehabbing a hero who overcomes anxiety to save the world and defeat the terror-industrial complex by the simple matter of cloning his body armor, the movie proves that there’s still intelligent life on Planet Marvel. As you’re propelled out of the theater on IM3′s hydraulic lift of pleasures, you’re likely to say, “That is how it’s done.”

    Time Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    It sharply fuses the humor and heart of the earlier films with a satisfyingly heavy-metal strength — and a darkness that’s more than earned.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • James Mottram

    Funny, twisty and thrilling, this is shellhead’s most entertaining solo flight to date. It’s also an impressive pace-setter for this summer’s barrage of big movies.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    Black proves the perfect blacksmith, forging smart new tech and scenarios for the swaggering super-genius. If this does turn out to be Downey Jr.’s final solo outing, it’s a very strong exit.

    Empire Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Black and his co-screenwriter, first-timer Drew Pearce, have great fun reshuffling the deck, teasing about who might occupy what superhero suit and morphing the story along with identity revelations and expansions of the dramatic horizons; the well-chosen cast members respond in kind with virtually palpable glee.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Black has an instinctive feel for balancing action set-pieces against the passages of soap-opera that are required to make them matter.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    Iron Man 3 is smart, funny and spectacular.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The balance between human interaction and mechanical mayhem works well until the end, when flying suits and exploding bodies fill the screen.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    It's solidly entertaining, with Downey's roguish charm as appealing as ever.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The rambunctious Iron Man 3 is a briskly paced thrill ride until about 90 minutes in, when the excitement wanes. A few late-breaking surprises re-invigorate the tale, however.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Iron Man 3 has the stuff to please the devotees and divert everyone else, which is pretty much what's expected from the curtain-raiser of any summer season.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Oliver Lyttelton

    For all the film's flaws, Black brings enough to the table that it's far from a chore, and if this level of ingenuity and surprise can be maintained, there'll be no need for Tony to hang up his Iron Man helmet any time soon.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    At least this time "Goopy" Paltrow gets to perform a few superheroics herself, along with enduring some heavy-duty torture that’s bound to please her haters — for whom the sight of the top of her face being peeled off in "Contagion" was like Christmas in July.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Black and company throw all kinds of stuff at the audience, and though it doesn't all work, a lot of it does and the attempt to be different and create unguessable twists is always appreciated.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    As far as bored and cynical, playing-out-the-string comic-book action sequels go – hey, Iron Man 3 is a pretty good one!

    Salon.com Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Downey is as funny as ever, if not more so. He ensures that Iron Man 3 is a solid installment in the franchise, and helps to make it seem, at least for a time, that it might be something more.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Iron Man 3 is missing that old Tony Stark spark. Not from Robert Downey Jr., who is still the best thing about this overblown show.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    Iron Man 3 builds on the first film's political cynicism by suggesting that politicians and arms dealers dream up foreign policy crises to consolidate power and make money, but it doesn't develop this notion in detail, because if it did, the audience would tune out.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The real question for audiences isn’t whether Tony Stark/Iron Man defeats the latest supervillain (of course he does), but whether the movie itself rises above the dreaded third-in-a-sequel torpor of "Spider-Man" and "The Dark Knight." Spoiler alert: Yes, mostly, it does.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    A big, kabooming sequel that plays sleight-of-hand with its audience.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    For all the clanking armies of iron knights on display to dazzle the eager kid in each of us, this summer epic rings hollow. There's no one home inside the suit.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Marvel Studios will only be able to draw from this well only so many times, though, before fatigue sets in.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's not without its payoffs; I enjoyed a lot of it. But overall last year's "Avengers" delivered the bombastic goods more efficiently than this year's Marvel.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The best scenes are when Stark just cuts impatiently through the claptrap.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The broad, goofy jokes and one-liners land — even if they feel a little winded, this time.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    In other words, Iron Man 3 -- once more delivering a satisfying combination of humor, action and dazzling set pieces -- provides everything fans of the franchise expect.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Given the keys to the franchise and a role in the writing, Black has massively upped the verbal sparring and kept the broad inventiveness of comic-book malleability in mind. “I’m a mechanic,” Stark says to the boy in a moment of self-doubt. That’s 100% Black, that line, a tidy code of craft, and the jitters pass.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    It’s undeniably entertaining – and worth seeing for Kingsley alone – with the misfires never fully overshadowing the moments of glory.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Here, it’s hard not to wish Downey were sparring with his costumed comrades again, instead of trading barbs with the far-less-colorful cast members — old and new — of this busy, sporadically diverting sequel.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The action, directed by Shane Black, ranges from passable to interminable. The plot goes from clang to bang. Downey Jr. is still the best thing about this series.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The third iteration of a franchise that began so well becomes a hollow hymn to martial gadgetry. The suits and story clank in unison.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    A frantic, occasionally funny, finally enervating bricolage of special effects, explosive set pieces, sardonic one--liners and notional human emotions, this branch of the Marvel franchise tree feels brittle and over--extended enough to snap off entirely.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Judged solely in comparison to its corporate cousins, Iron Man 3 is a defective model. It’s lightweight but slow, padded with cheap jokes to disguise how hollow it is.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Unfortunately, that sharp-eyed domestic comedy is dwarfed by the far less well-written supervillain crime plot that surrounds it.

    Slate Full Review
  • Louis Black

    The film provides more of the same and nothing startlingly innovative, but what's here is good.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The big problems with Iron Man 3 are less specific to the movie itself than they are characteristic of the hypermalaise that’s infected so many current mega-blockbusters—too much plot, too much action, too many characters, too many pseudo-feelings.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Iron Man 3 is more perfunctory and workmanlike than its two predecessors, but this solid production still delivers more than enough of what fans expect.

    Variety Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Stuff blows up and then more stuff blows up because that’s what happens when diversions like this hit movie screens around this time of year: chaos reigns and then some guy cleans it up.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    The villains are all wrong, the motivations are muddy, even the gadgetry is off. And the swaggering genius at the center of it all has become a preening fool.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Violent and nonsensical, with story elements in contradiction, it is lifted up by the efforts of the actors, who try to put a human face on the blockbuster machinery and almost succeed.
