"Iron Man 3" (2013)
Tony Stark's suffering from a bout of post-traumatic stress syndrome brought on by his "Avengers" experience, just as a terrorist named The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) starts blowin' a whole lotta sh*t up around the U.S. Can Tony shake off his personal demons and get back to kickin' bad-guy butt again? Well, duh
. This third chapter is far better than the blah "Iron Man 2," with more humor and of course plenty of action.
Robert Downey Jr. gets to flex some action-hero muscles outside of the Iron Man suit, and Gwyneth "Pepper Potts" Paltrow is given more to do than the standard damsel-in-distress routine for a change. The end credits promise that "Tony Stark will return," ala James Bond, which is fine by me.
