“..it's not quite as much fun as "The Avengers," but "Iron Man 3" is as good as it needs to be, and maybe even a little better..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]
4 of 5

“..it sharply fuses the humor and heart of the earlier films with a satisfyingly heavy-metal strength - and a darkness that's more than earned..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

“..Iron Man 3 has the stuff to please the devotees and divert everyone else, which is pretty much what's expected from the curtain-raiser of any summer season..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
3 of 4

“..has such a surfeit of visual dazzle and eye-popping stunts that it teeters on overload. But Downey reins it all in with his perfectly-timed dry wit..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..Downey is at his superhero genius best here, rattling off dialogue both clever and boilerplate with non-repetitive aplomb..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
3.5 of 4

“..Downey is as funny as ever, if not more so. He ensures that "Iron Man 3" is a solid installment in the franchise, and helps to make it seem, at least for a time, that it might be something more..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

“..Black proves the perfect blacksmith, forging smart new tech and scenarios for the swaggering super-genius..”
by Nick de Semlyen [Empire Magazine]

“..Black is taking the superhero back to zero, but he doesn't pause for too much navel-gazing, instead using those malfunctions to deliver great crash bang fun..”
by Stella Papamichael [Digital Spy]

“..an ominously exciting, shoot-the-works comic-book spectacular..”

“..Ari Folman, however, is a filmmaker who, almost to a fault is, determined to make movies in his own inimitable way..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]


“..is the typical Hallmark Channel movie with a light-hearted story, some beautiful people and some OK acting..”
by [Movieman's Guide to the Movies]


“..overly familiar spy film serves its star well..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]


“..sibling filmmakers Peter and Michael Spierig offer a skillful and atmospheric adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein's 1960 short story " - All You Zombies - ," and if it's better in the intimate early stages than in the more grandiose later passages..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]


“..thanks to Saville's tightly controlled direction and a superlative cast, the mere exchange of glances builds as much suspense as the kinetic action sequence that opens the pic..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]


“..the action sequences are competently directed, but exhibit virtually no flair or invention, as Patric simply stands there shooting at waves of anonymous henchmen until they all fall down..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]


“..the ham-fisted script is incapable of a multilayered approach, while the helming and editing are at the level of mediocre TV..”
by Jay Weissberg [Variety]


“..a bland version of Liam Neeson's Taken..”
by Sukanya Verma [rediff.com]


“..so is this terrific movie..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]


“..the movie often feels like a full-length ad for a great workplace, which just happens to stash whips and chains in the stationery closet..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
