Iron Man 3 is the Army of Darkness of the Iron Man franchise. You could easily imagine Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark saying, “gimme some sugar, baby.” The film focuses on Stark as he battles nightmares of nose-adorned faceplates and "Gandhi", and struggles in his relationships with Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts and ... a little boy (but not at all in a creepy way). The rapport between Downey Jr. and the little boy, Ty Simpkins, really works; in fact, I could watch a whole other movie with just the two of them bantering and nary an iron suit in sight.
Is it the best movie you’ll ever see? No. But it sure is a helluva lot of fun. Go see it.
