Kurt Loder Reviews Iron Man 3

|

Iron Man 3 is a great big whiz-bang digital entertainment, exactly as advertised, writes Kurt Loder. The 3D conversion is a little light on wow, the action is occasionally muddy, and the plot's a bit wobbly in spots, if that matters. But new director Shane Black, taking over from Jon Favreau, has layered some nice pulp trappings into the story: an exotic master criminal, an infestation of fiery-eyed demons. And he knows how to use his one-of-a-kind star, Robert Downey Jr., whose nervy intelligence and mastery of the throwaway quip are enough to supercharge any movie.
