Iron Man 3

Rated 3.0

This time around übercapitalist and Iron Man alter ego Tony Stark (the always entertaining Robert Downey Jr.) and his faithful companion Pepper Potts (the ever-annoying Gwyneth Paltrow) have their domestic bliss disrupted by yet another supervillain’s personal vendetta. Things blow up and people die until Iron Man jumps back into action and resolves things in an interminable maelstrom of CGI pixels. The 3D is fine, and the scheiss hits the fan with a liquid consistency. But IM3 isn’t very complicated, and the villain’s motivation for all that subterfuge and destruction in pursuit of destroying Stark is kind of absurd. But the banter is amusing, with a couple of gags that nail it out of the park. Cinemark 14, Feather River Cinemas and Paradise Cinema 7. Rated PG-13.
