Iron Man 3 Review By Otto L.

Finally, a third Iron Man. When Iron Man first came out in 2008, Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr.) took the world by surprise when he combined his witty, eccentric and charismatic playboy millionaire personality, along with his sense of justice when he put on Iron Man suit. First of all, before you watch any movie that has Iron Man in it, watch the first Iron Man. It was a classic. A quick recap, in the first Iron Man, Tony Stark was and still is the owner of Stark Industries, a fictional weapons manufacturing company. Then, the on his trip to Afghanistan he was kidnapped by terrorists who had seized his weapons. He was forced to build a missile for them. Realizing that his weapons had been causing pain to others, he decides to build an armored suit to escape from his captivity. To keep things simple, from that point onwards, Tony Stark becomes Iron Man and fights for justice, end of story.

Just kidding. Anyway, six months following the epic battle against flying aliens in ultimate superhero ensemble movie The Avengers, Tony Stark is now suffering posttraumatic stress disorder and obsessed with building more and more Iron Man suits.  In the mean time, a mysterious terrorist called The Mandarin has been ordering multiple lethal bombings in the Middle East and in America. Stark has now been called to rise up to the occasion. That’s all I’m going to give away. I do have to say that this is probably the funniest Marvel superhero movie to date. Robert Downey Jr is spectacular as always portraying Tony Stark. However, this movie takes a different angle from the Iron Man and Iron Man 2. We see more of Tony Stark without his armored suits; the film focuses more on not the Iron Man suit, but the Iron Man within Tony Stark himself.

This film is great in its own right, it did not top the original Iron Man, but proved to be a much better film than Iron Man 2. In the third installment in Tony Stark’s sotry, we final find out whether his suits define Iron Man or does he define the Iron Man?
