Oh, we were waiting to see this movie, and I am glad to say that we were NOT disappointed!  I am excited that all of the comic feature heroes are being brought to the big screen, and that they are having continued success.  The Marvel Comics adventures always were entertaining, and the current conversions of the tales to cinematic adventures has been extremely amazing.  The Iron Man series is NO exception!

“A famous man once said we create our own demons”Iron Man 3 begins with Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) giving a speech at a massive New Year’s gala in Bern, Switzerland.  The story moves to Tony in Malibu, California, where he is advancing his Iron Man suits.  Suddenly, a news update shows that a terrorist has attacked Kuwait, killing many people, including children!

A sadistic villain called The Mandarin has launched a terrorist attack.  Iron Man has promised to deal with the situation, seeking the assistance of his heroic friend Colonel James Rhodes (Don Cheadle).  Colonel Rhodes now assists Iron Man as an iron-suited super hero called Iron Patriot (War Machine)!  Both heroes vow to respond immediately, as bombings have occurred at the hands of The Mandarin!

Tony’s girlfriend, Pepper Potts (Gwenneth Paltrow) is running his facility while Tony is away.  Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) has arrived there to meet with her.  He is a scientist, currently in the midst of mapping the bio-electrical activity of the human brain.  Pepper is not exactly fond of, nor pleased by the sight of Killian, as he tries to recruit her into being a test subject for his scientific testings!

Pepper returns to her home with Tony, where he is testing new Iron Man armored suits.  As they are about to be married, Tony actually spied on Pepper as Killian tried to hit on her!  It is later that Tony tells this to Pepper, admitting that he is having some emotional issues.  When they go to bed for the evening, one of Tony’s armored suits activates, advancing toward Pepper as she sleeps!

Pepper awakens, calms herself, then she goes downstairs.  Noise is heard outside, as it is seen that two men are fighting in the street.  One of the fighters reveals himself to be extremely powerful, as the other man explodes!  The victorious man announces himself as The Mandarin (Sir Ben Kingsley), and that he is on a mission of terror with another action soon to come!

Colonel Rhodes was injured in a previous battle against The Mandarin, and Tony visits him in the hospital.  It is there where Tony announces that he will battle The Mandarin.  Tony proceeds to get covert information from The F.B.I. and from S.H.I.E.L.D. about the tactics of The Mandarin.  He studies residue from bombs that Mandarin has deployed, along with details from prior attack locations.  The details lead Tony to Rose Hill, Tennessee.

Tony and Pepper are at his home when a bomb advances toward his residence!  His living room is blown up, and helicopters arrive, launching missiles!  Pepper attempts getting into an Iron Man suit to help, as Tony runs to get into his own suit.  The house still is under fire, and the copters have launched missiles directly into Tony’s mansion.  He winds up being dragged into falling debris from his declining home, sinking into the ocean waters beside the mansion’s plot.  Tony is buried under water and rubble, yet he manages to get himself free.

Now, within a fully-charged iron suit, Tony flies back to Tennessee.  The suit is somewhat damaged, as he crashes into water, and he ends up being dragged to shore by a Texaco hauler ship.  Night has fallen; Tony contacts Pepper to leave her a message.  He takes his damaged iron suit to a nearby home, getting the unusual assistance of an inquisitive young boy named Harley (Ty Simkins)!

Pepper has Tony’s Iron Man suit and helmet, now!  She puts them on, downloading Tony’s last message.  She learns that Adrian Killian has been behind the attacks on Tony, and that Adrian is in cohoots with The Mandarin!

Meanwhile, Tony is with Harley.  He has information about the last explosion, which reveals that Harley is science-saavy, and that he is something of a chatterbox!  Harley leads Tony to a restaurant, where he meets with a Mrs. Davis (Dale Dickey).  Their meeting is interrupted by an F.B.I. agent, who attempts to arrest Harley.  Yet, a local sherriff intrudes on the scene.  The agent kills the sherriff, along with two other bystanders who attempt to help Tony!

This agent proceeds with an attempt to attack Tony, but he escapes.  She chases Tony, revealing that she has psycho-kenetic powers and telepathic capacity!  Tony keeps her trapped in the restaurant, but she breaks loose, heading toward a water tower outside.  Meanwhile, Harley is outside, and he winds up being caught by this agent.  Yet, Harley knows tactics taught to him by Tony, including methods of how to escape being held captive.

The Mandarin now has made a public broadcast to the nation!  He announces that he has captives, and that he will kill them if The President does not call him in thirty seconds!  President Ellis (William Sadler) does call The Mandarin, yet the captives are killed anyway!  The Mandarin then announces that he is going to continue with his attacks on the nation!

Colonel Rhodes suits up as War Machine, and he is contacted by Tony.  Additionally, Tony gets the assistance of a news cameraman out of Chattanooga, Tennessee named Gary (Adam Pally).  Tony is able to contact Colonel Rhodes, and he gets information about A.I.M..  He sees that A.I.M. has been working with failed attempts to hone work on biological and genetic enhancements in human test subjects!

Henchmen of The Mandarin intrude upon Pepper, and they capture Iron Patriot!  Tony has Harley to download details into his iron suit as it is recharging.  Yet, Tony suddenly is overcome by pain and nervous attack!  Harley assists Tony by giving him amazingly useful, psychological advice, which Tony follows!

Harley proceeds to sneak into The Mandarin’s Miami mansion, hacking computer information, and deploying pressure bombs!  He sneaks further into the mansion, as Tony encounters a fake of The Mandarin, meant to distract Iron Man’s heroic tactics.  This fake tells Tony that The Mandarin that he has been the one on the televised broadcastst of the villain, meant to fake-out the nation!

The real Mandarin appears, knocking Tony out, then trapping him.  An ex-girlfriend of Tony’s, Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall) appears, as she has Pepper held captive, too!  Maya is deluded by Mandarin, and she is working with his henchman, Aldrich Killian, as well.  In the midst of trying to gain control of the situation, Killian kills Maya!

Killian reveals that he has Iron Patriot captive, too!  War Machine attempts to fight, but Killian somehow catches fire and crumbles!  Tony finally arrives, getting access to a newly-charged suit, then fighting Mandarin’s thugs!

Now, Iron Man and Iron Patriot get access to Mandarin.  The villain tells of his plans of destruction, and of his intent to capture The President!  Mandarin has an impersonator of Iron Patriot, who currently is in route to Air Force One, meaning to kill The President!  Yet, The President is NOT on the plane!

The villains to attack Air Force One, puncturing a hole into the side of the plane, which vacuums passengers out into the sky!  Tony reaches The President’s Plane, and he saves thirteen people that are falling to the ground.  He, along with all of the passengers, work together to make a safe water landing!

Pepper remains trapped, and The President is delivered to The Mandarin in Iron Patriot’s suit.  Tony Stark and Colonel Rhodes are told where The President is being held captive.  Both of them are shot at by thugs, as their iron suits appear, along with several other iron suits, to assist for battle!  All of the thugs are eliminated, as Tony and Colonel Stark suit up to go and save Pepper!

Colonel Rhodes moves to save President Ellis, yet he winds up fighting thugs trying to attack them.  The President winds up suiting into Rhodes’ iron suit, battling the thugs!  Meanwhile, Tony is trying to save Pepper, as she is seeming to fall into a pit of flames!

A flaming villain appears, who is very powerful, and he moves to battle Tony.  He removes Tony’s iron suit, and a back-up suit is not able to reach Tony.  The Mandarin gets into one of Tony’s iron suits, so Tony blows up the suit with the villain inside of it!  Yet, Mandarin amazingly survives one last time, only to have himself killed as Pepper dons an iron suit to fight the villain, killing him, and saving her beloved Tony!  All of the additional iron suits are destroyed, as well!
