Mini Movie Review: Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3 came out in theatres last night, and it surprisingly wasn't as busy as I thought it was going to be. That could just be because I was at the early, 2D showing. The previews we got to see were Star Trek into Darkness, Fast & Furious 6 and Thor: The Dark World. They were all pretty exciting.
Before I begin my review, let's have the synopsis.
Brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) is pitted against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to a question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Apparently, according to my boyfriend and his friends, the movie wasn't "right". Meaning it's different than the comic books and the villain isn't the same. But to someone who has no idea about any of that (ie, me), it was a good movie.
What I liked about this movie was that it showed that Tony is still human. Whenever he got stressed out (or someone mentioned New York) he would have anxiety attacks. It also had the typical Marvel humour, but at some points it seemed like there was too much comic relief and one liners.
There are some creepy looking bad guys, a few plot twists, and an adorable boy that ends up helping Tony.
If you're a huge Marvel fan, or have even just seen the rest of the movies, I would definitely recommend watching this movie. And as always, make sure you stay until the credits finish rolling.
