  1. Wow! I thought Ironman series was done after the Avengers-
    They had(for someone without any knowledge of the comics)
    nothing more to give…but here they are-back with a BANG(you’ll see)
    The 3D is awesome-never seen anything like it before. If anyone thought that with Shane Black behind the scene-a lot has changed…with all due respects-Hell Yes! Only for the best.
    The movie dives into the past in the very beginning and resurfaces with past Devils. Most dramatic in the whole series, the movie one-ups itself with nerve shattering realistic 3D that has you cringing against
    your seats.

    The action is a bit on the side of unbelievable-as is the case
    with every Sci-fi-action…but don’t worry, the science has it
    In all- Iron Man 3(3D) is a must watch for anyone with a taste
    for action(…I hope most of us)-You don’t wanna miss this!
