Ever wondered how Iron Man would function without his slit-eyed helmet , head lamp, breast plate and all the metal arm and leg chunks that he wears? Well finally we have the answer in Iron Man 3. A tired and anxiety stricken Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr) world is torn apart by a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin. Armed with nothing more than his wit and cockiness Stark goes on a personal mission to defeat the villain.
When I first heard that there will be an Iron Man 3, my thoughts were – oh no! Not another sequel, they always get things wrong when they keep prolonging movies. I was very skeptical and did not know what to expect. I hoped for greatness, something better than the first installments of the movie and boy did I get all that I hoped for and more.
