Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

Here's the short, non-spoily version: It's fun popcorn movie, with lots of action. A little too much interpersonal touchy-feely crap for an Iron Man movie, and not enough "suit blowing shit up" time, imo, but still good. Oh... and if you're a fan of The Mandarin character from the comics, oh boy are you gonna be pissed.

There's some real silliness as he continues to find new ways to get the suit on as quickly as possible. (How many "high speed groin shot" sight gags do we need?) 

Go see it, enjoy it for what it is, and relish in the glorious trailers that precede it. It's a fun summer superhero flick, but it doesn't really break any new ground. It takes a lot of liberties with canon and leaves you wondering how it's going to dovetail into the next Avengers movie, which you know it does.

And FINALLY, yes, there's an easter egg at the end, but it's barely worth staying for. It's more of the "oh I get it, they're eating shwarma" variety, rather than "omg what does it mean?!?"

IronMan3 is much comedy than its action. but overall it entertained.
