Synopsis: All you really need to know is that Iron Man goes after a big baddie
Stan's thoughts: Love the Iron Man films primarily because of Robert Downey Jnr's cocky and brash Tony Stark. He's sharp and funny and as always entertaining to watch. As usual Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Col James Rhodes (Don Cheadle) act add emotional and physical support but there are some new villains in the form of Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) and The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). Kingsley is having such fun in this film he is a joy to watch and steals several scenes.
My only slight niggle is the final big battle quickly descends into big roberts bashing each other which gets a little bit tedious after a while but it is a minor grumble.
Overall, just good, disengage brain, sit back and enjoy fun film.
