Watching "Iron Man 3"
Published on May 22, 2013 by Sara Foss

Over at the DG, I review the movie "Iron Man 3."

Here's an excerpt:

"Watching 'Iron Man 3' is a bit like dropping in on old friends who are decent enough company, even though you’ve kind of grown apart.

The film is fun and exciting, with a lively sense of humor and sharp, clever dialogue — of all the superhero franchises, the 'Iron Man' films most resemble the frothy screwball comedies of an earlier era. In fact, the most interesting thing about 'Iron Man 3' is the interaction between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), who began the series as Stark’s assistant and is now his girlfriend. Watching these two bicker and banter is easily the highlight of the film. Sure, the special effects are cool, and there are some dynamic action sequences, but the basic storyline — evil supervillian genius seeks to control the world and Tony Stark AKA Iron Man must stop him — is nothing new. What makes 'Iron Man 3' worth watching is the same thing that made 'Iron Man' and 'Iron Man 2' worth watching: character and heart."
