Iron Man 3 (Shane Black – 2013) B-

Iron Man 3 is a whole lot of fun and is worth the trip to the theater for that alone. It’s not as good as the first Iron Man and significantly better and light-hearted than the second installment. Robert Downey Jr. does a fantastic job with the character, but really Ben Kingsley has what is possibly the best scene in the film. My biggest problem with Iron Man 3 is that I never felt that the stakes are high or serious enough. It seems funny to say that in a superhero comic book flick, but still it never felt that Tony Stark is in any real dilemma or situation that he will not snap a finger and get out of.
