The wealthy and witty Tony Stark and his iron suits blast into box offices for the third time in Iron Man 3.

Iron Man 3 is the next installment of the Marvel series, clearly leading up to a sequel to the Avengers. Unlike the previous two, Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black, most known for directing the Lethal Weapon series.

[singlepic id=250 w=150 h=200 float=left]The film, released on May 3, was well-executed and delivered everything you would expect in an action/comedy.

Robert Downey Jr plays Stark brilliantly as his naturally cocky, deadpan personality fits the role of the wealthy genius perfectly.

Downey does an amazing job at providing strength, tenderness and humor all in one character. Iron Man 3 also features a strong group of supporting cast including Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce, the main villain.

Pearce plays Aldrich Killian, a genius who believed he was mistreated by Stark in the past and is now set out to wreak havoc.

Killian develops a serum that changes the composition within the body, effectively turning people into fireballs. If harnessed properly, those who are given the serum can replenish limbs, melt metal down to liquid and at one point, breathe fire from their mouths. However, if the body can’t handle it, the host self-implodes.

The comedy that Black inserts throughout the movie fits well and is never awkward or forced. Often times, when directors try to insert comedy into an action movie, it comes out cheesy, i.e A Good Day to Die Hard.

But obviously where this movie makes its money is the action. The CGI in this film is truly amazing.

There’s never a dull scene and there are several action scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat while Iron Man is flying around doing his Iron Man things. The film is loaded with fighting, explosions and intense scenes which in itself makes it worth the ten bucks you’ll likely spend to see it.

The film earned a PG-13 rating, but due to some of the darker and more violent scenes, parents may want to watch the film first before determining whether or not the younger ones get to see it as well.

With awesome action, nicely executed comedy as well as a little drama, Iron Man 3 is sure to entertain a wide range of audiences from diehard comic book fans, general action fans and those just looking for a fun way to kill a couple hours.Iron Man 3 kicks off what appears to be a loaded summer of action movies with Fast and Furious 6, Man of Steel and the next Marvel installment, Thor: The Dark World, all on the horizon.
