You've just gotta go see this...

Iron Man 3 is the first Marvel film released after the box office mammoth that was The Avengers, and it has a lot to live up to.

Those that enjoy this type of movie won't be disappointed. Robert Downey Jr once again plays Tony Stark as a wise cracking billionaire, but this time with demons, thanks to his experiences in The Avengers.

There's plenty of action and gadgets, although I thought they played it fast and loose with the gadgetry sometimes, which was a little distracting.

Ben Kingsley was superb as the bad guy, Mandarin, as was Guy Pierce, and even Gwenyth Paltrow didn't annoy me as much as usual.

Maybe not as good as the first two, but still an enjoyable couple of hours.
