In this film, Iron Man faces off against a shadowy organization connected to his past. It caused a great deal of controversy because the character of the Madarin is nothing like his comic book counterpart. This disappointed a lot of people because the Madarin is considered to be Iron Man's most famous foes.
What makes this movie the best Iron Man film, is that Tony Stark spends most of this movie without his armor. The second half of this movie is actually more like a James Bond film than a super hero film, but that a good thing. Too often super heroes become more powerful and face stronger foes in their sequels. In this film, Tony Stark is weaker than he has ever been, and that just adds to the suspense.
Stark was specifically referring to a conference in 1999 when he was still a freewheeling playboy who was often irresponsible. He blew off a researcher named Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) who’d created a group called Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM) and slept with the scientist Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall) and then forgot about them. Killian would be his foe in this film with AIM becoming a criminal organization along with the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), while Hansen would work for him on something called Extremis that was another attempt to create a super soldier. This relates to the theme that if Stark had paid attention to people back in the day they might not have come back to haunt him. Killian was not a big figure in the comics, but AIM was one of the main villains right up there with Hydra. The Mandarin was also one of Iron Man’s biggest foes. The movie completely changed the character to a figurehead however, which was greatly criticized by fans of the comics.
Another part of the theme was Stark suffering post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from the first Avengers film. He constantly had flashbacks and panic attacks as a result of him almost dying at the end of that film. Again, his past was affecting him.
The main flaw with the story was that Killian just wasn’t that much of a bad guy, and the one that should have been the main villain the Mandarin really wasn’t. A good action movie always has to have a strong villain otherwise it doesn’t give the audience much reason to care about the conflict in the story. Killian had a scheme to exploit the war on terror for his own profit, but is that really a good driving plot? That’s the reason why Iron Man 3 is definitely a second tier Marvel movie.
1) it has a couple of plot holes so dumb it's painful
2) the bad guy's abilities are never fully fleshed out and just seem lazy and dumb
3) film succumbs to the lazy genius cliche that says once someone is a genius, they can do almost anything without any prior experience or training.
Then their was the villain, who sucked, and it was weird sciencey. Ultimately hard to follow. I mean a white guy getting powerful by stealing a woman's work and pinning it on minorities through carefully orchestrated media campaign. Yeah that's a realistic villain. (But the fire-plant? whaaaa?)

As for the movie itself, it has some nice bits. Ben Kingsley is great and funny but the whole character and actor are a wasted chance. Guy Pearce is not bad with an interesting character, but again not fully developed or used appropriately. Downey Jr. is typical, Cheadle is great, but for me the highlight was Paltrow and Favreau.
After this little praise I can say nothing but scorn. It is by far the weakest of all MCU movies to date, and I think lets the Iron Man series down. With the progression of Iron Man movies the star of the show, ol' Tin Head, actually does less and less, while Stark is more in the picture. I have a feeling this is to do with celebrity more than story arc. The story promises so much but fails to turn up, let alone not deliver what was expected. It is a jigsaw of good ideas but all from different boxes and the end result is a mess that leaves you with a slight headache as looking at it is more like a stereogram - you stare at it but can only vaguely see what is going on. Weak, diluted, almost pointless. Maybe only worth it for the end credits scene.
A satisfying enough slice of Marvel for those who enjoy these grandiose, over-the-top Superhero movies.
The standard UK DVD release has only a couple of short extras – a deconstruction of a key scene in the movie and a sneak-peek of the second Thor movie; English subtitles for the film are available, but like the other DVDs in this series they need to be selected from the main menu – they can't be accessed after the film has commenced playing.
