Product Description The studio that brought you Marvel’s The Avengers unleashes the best Iron Man adventure yet with this must-own, global phenomenon starring Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow. When Tony Stark/Iron Man finds his entire world reduced to rubble, he must use all his ingenuity to survive, destroy his enemy and somehow protect those he loves. But a soul-searching question haunts him: Does the man make the suit… or does the suit make the man? Featuring spectacular special effects, Marvel’s Iron Man 3 explodes with exclusive Blu-ray content. Amazon.com Tony Stark/Iron Man Eccentric genius, billionaire, philanthropist Tony Stark is the armored super-hero known as Iron Man. Decompressing from his heroic, near-self-sacrificial action as iron Man that saved New York City from annihilation, Tony finds himself unable to sleep and plagued by worry and trepidation. When his world is destroyed and those closest to him threatened, Tony must find a way to save them and in the process find him again. Pepper Potts Pepper has progressed from Tony Stark's assistant to the head of Stark Industries, pausing along the way to fall in love with Tony as well. Bright, loyal and honest, Pepper understands Tony Stark more than anyone and sometimes that can be both a worrisome and dangerous thing. Colonel James "Rhodey" Rhodes / Iron Patriot Rhodey is the Liaison between Stark Industries and the U.S. Air Force. He is one of Tony Stark's few trusted friends and most of the time has the patience to deal with the impulsive genius. Rhodey has a new suit of War Machine armor in a red, silver, and blue patriotic design. When suited up, Rhodey becomes Iron Patriot. The Mandarin Mandarin is the sinister head of the terrorist organization known as The Ten Rings, from which all the actors of extreme terrorism plaguing the world appear to emanate. Although he is reclusive, Mandarin wields great power and makes his presence known by striking fear in the government and the populace through his brazen plans of attack. Review The original Iron Man struck unexpected gold with a difficult-to-replicate mixture of comic book heroics and the pinwheeling, heavily improvised charm of Robert Downey Jr. (Part 2, with its barely there plot and seemingly free-form staging, may be the closest we'll ever come to a superhero Rat Pack movie.) The third installment in the trilogy certainly doesn't rein in the now familiar quirks of its star--has there ever been a costumed hero who spends less time in costume?--but manages to raise the stakes enough to find an engaging balance between character and action. Loosely based on the Extremis comic arc by Warren Ellis and Adi Granov, the plot finds Tony Stark struggling to adjust to life after the multidimensional events of The Avengers. As he attempts to regain his footing and keep his relationship with Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), a new threat emerges, in the form of a domineering high-tech terrorist called the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley, whose stutter-step vocal pattern helps create one of the darndest villains in recent memory). Director Shane Black, who previously worked with Downey in the cult favorite Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, takes an intriguing detective story approach to the material, emphasizing the hero's deduction skills over extended scenes of CGI combat. When it does come time to armor up, though, the film delivers the goods, most notably in a scene involving a midair rescue that stands as the best action sequence in the entire series. The main draw, however, remains Downey, whose motor-mouthed, engagingly narcissistic characterization keeps things firing on all cylinders, particularly when balanced out by performances from folks like Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, and the terrifically hissable James Badge Dale. If this is indeed the capper to the series, it's going out in high style. --Andrew Wright
