Movie Review: Iron Man 3

Why are you looking at this review? You decided 6 months ago whether you were going to see this movie or not. Odds are that you've seen it already. If not then it's for the same reason that it took me so long to see it. You were planning to see it with other people.

If you haven't seen it, I've got good news for you. It's as good as you hoped. Maybe better. It's not one of those series that suddenly goes way downhill in the third movie. It had a good story and is well told.

There's one action scene that shows what's important to Tony while setting up something significant for a later action scene.

Ben Kingsley gets to play someone awesome, but not who you think.

There is a death scene that wasn't quite as convincing as it could have been.

AND SIT THROUGH THE FUCKING CREDITS! My god! There've been two Iron Man movies, a Hulk movie, a Thor movie, a Captain America movie, and an Avengers movie before this! If you're going to see Iron Man THREE I have to assume you've seen at least one of those other movies! You DO! NOT! LEAVE! just because the credits are rolling! SERIOUSLY PEOPLE! Most of the people left my viewing the moment the credits started.
