Iron Man 3 (2013)

Here we see our hero at his most anxious and out of control (see his panic attacks, bedside suit scare) but also his most focused and angry (see his workshop insomnia, challenge to the Mandarin); at his most technologically dazzling and powerful (see his army of suits in a great final action scene), but also back to his most humble creative roots (“I’m The Mechanic”). This strong climactic characterization, coupled with a brilliant turn (x2) by Kingsley makes for the best film in the MCU so far.


  1. I’m so glad you love this one. When I first saw it, I was really surprised by the amount of backlash this film received. To me, it’s one of the MCU’s most diverse and creative films. We get to see Tony use his mind for once, and not his suits. It plays more like a buddy cop flick than a superhero film, making for one of Marvel’s funniest and most entertaining films to date. I love nearly every second. Great review!
