I love me some Marvel movies. While I didn’t love Iron Man 3 I thought it was the best of the franchise. But it’s not without it flaws. In case you’ve been living under a rock (not judging you) you can find the plot here. Now to discuss those flaws.
Iron Man 3 isn’t just an action movie. It’s a character study, an attempt to add layers to Tony Stark. The writers, Shane Black (also the director) and Drew Pearce, took the characterization rule to heart in this one: during the course of the story the lead must grow and by the end he must change.
