There are almost as many concepts floating around in Iron Man 3 as there are suits of armor. The only difference is that the armors have a clearly defined purpose. In an attempt to bring Tony Stark back to basics, his latest outing is a strangely bloated affair that still manages to be an incredibly fun thanks to the hilarious comedy and exhilarating action. Without question, it’s the funniest and most exciting of the trilogy, but it’s also surrounded by a host of underdeveloped ideas relating to notions of desperation, augmentation, and obfuscation, not to mention the aftershock of The Avengers. Like riding in one of the Iron Man suits, it’s a bumpy but highly enjoyable ride.
