“..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]
4 of 5

“..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]
Review rate : A-

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

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]


“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]


“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]


“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]


“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]


“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]


“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]


“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]


“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
