DVD & Blu-ray review: Iron Man 3 (12)

Shane Black DVD/Blu-ray (130mins)

It's far better than the second, jarringly strident slice, but not as fun as the first Iron Man film. Robert Downey Jr continues to chew the scenery as the arrogant, super-smart Tony Stark, who this time is faced with a crazed (of course) scientist (played with some relish by Guy Pearce) and his gang of flaming fiends. They're hell-bent on snaring the president and Pepper Potts (played by Gwyneth Paltrow, who has proved effortlessly good in this franchise). A satisfying end.
