Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Iron Man 3 has good things in it, enough to please the series' fans -- and yet too many drawbacks to win many converts."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Iron Man 3 feels like an exploitative mulching of present-day anxieties. The script is ambitious but not wise enough to be rightfully cathartic. It's more Cuisinart than art."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Iron Man 3 is, perhaps by default, the best comic book superhero "threequel" yet."
‑ Scott Mendelson, Forbes
"Iron Man 3 is an decent movie that really should have been far better with this pedigree."
‑ Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects
"The film's true strength is a snappy, whip-smart wit"
‑ Mara Reinstein, Us Weekly
"The trouble is that, as the plot quickens, any cleverness withdraws, to make way for the firecrackers of the climax. That is not Black's forte, and his movie duly slumps into a mess."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"The action, directed by Shane Black, ranges from passable to interminable."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Robert Downey Jr. is clearly having a blast playing a more sardonic Tony Stark."
‑ Bryan Bishop, The Verge
"Downey is a brilliant actor who somehow manages to portray Tony Stark as traumatised without losing the character's laidback and comedic quality."
‑ Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
"Robert Downey, Jr. makes Iron Man one of the most entertaining superheroes in the Marvel movie universe."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Shane Black excels at writing witty, self-referential, pop-infused banter, and there is no actor working today who is better suited to delivering it than Robert Downey Jr."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"Black is good at giving his heroes a morbid, self-hating edge and even better at coming up with hateable villains."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"The movie works mainly due to its acting."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"Writer/director Shane Black... brings sharp snarky humor and some welcome psychological depth to the Iron Man franchise, which faded in an exhausting second installment after the exhilarating original."
‑ Seth Kubersky, Orlando Weekly
"The most mature of the "Iron Man" films by far."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
