Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "The dust has settled and director Shane Black‘s highly-anticipated Phase Two kick-starter for Marvel/Disney’s gigantic venture is here. Iron Man 3 has landed and it just might be the best in the mostly over-rated series. It’s also not a very good movie. Iron Man 3 is Robert Downey Jr.‘s best turn as the playboy millionaire Tony Stark, because of its deeper interests in the character, but the film as a whole is weighed down by too many pointless villains and action sequences that feel like nothing more than expensive set pieces. Iron Man 3 feels almost as sluggish as Iron Man and also suffers from a deflating ending, much like Iron Man 2."
