Amazing! The third in the Iron Man franchise is bigger and better than the first, and far better than the second! Its combination of stunning action sequences, top notch acting, and a surprising amount of laugh-out-loud comedy makes it the perfect film for all to see. I think this is easily my favourite film of the year so far. The 2hours 20 mins running time (or thereabouts) is about the length you’d expect for a Marvel film, however for those wondering if it’s too long – it’s not. It really keeps you going right up until the end, and certainly doesn’t feel dragged out. One thing is for sure, you can’t tell Disney own Marvel now!

The story follows Tony Stark as he threatens a terrorist, giving him his home address in the process… All hell (unsurprisingly) breaks loose and all is not quite what it seems with regards to what is actually going on… I can’t give too much away about the story for I don’t wish to ruin it, but I will say it’s a good one that is sure to keep you hooked. The acting is very good, something that sometimes gets missed in action films – but not Iron Man 3…. With a few new characters, including bad guy Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce – Prometheus) and young boy Harley (Ty Simpkins – Insidious) who Iron Man forms an interesting kind of bond with, a source of a fair amount of comedy (you’ll have to watch it to see what I mean).

I saw the 3D version, and it has to be said that it does look stunning in 3D, however as always if you’re not a fan of 3D it won’t detract from the film itself if you see it in 2D. I just feel it adds a bit more immersion to the experience. If you like 3D, you’re in for a treat.

An instant cinematic classic! Go and see it NOW, take your friends, your family, take everyone!! Essential viewing for any action or comedy fan for sure!105271h3
