Atom User Reviews for Marvel Studios 10th: Iron Man 3
IMAX is great for this movie.
The third iteration of a franchise that began so well becomes a hollow hymn to martial gadgetry. The suits and story clank in unison.
A big, kabooming sequel that plays sleight-of-hand with its audience.
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.
