Having finally caught up with a refresher course on the first two Iron Man movies (and thankfully having seen The Avengers), I took advantage of a rainy night to go see Iron Man 3 while still in theaters. To make my recap short: It was entertaining, and wrapped up the trilogy well. Was the whole plot line believable? Not really, but when you get to a third part of a series, you have to start getting a little creative. There were a lot of special effects and explosions and what not, but that's likely because the director had a huge budget and you can't NOT not spend that money, right? Iron Man 3 is the fifth-highest grossing movie of all time, and wraps up what is probably my second-favorite superhero franchise (na na na na na na na na BATMAN!). SPOILER: Tony and Pepper live happily ever after. Not as good as the first two movies, but worthwhile if you're invested in the franchise.
