    Verdict - Warrants a trip to the theater

    Iron Man 3Watch trailerRelease date : April 26, 2013

    This movie marks the end of Robert Downey Jr's contract with the Marvel folks, and might be the last time we see him as Iron Man. And as if Men in Metal suits already didn't bring back childhood dreams, this fact makes it all the more special.

    Something has to be said about the way Downey Jr makes each role his own - he has already done this with Sherlock Holmes as well. He seems to be an eccentric man, and these eccentricities are seamlessly transferred to the character. Also, playing the same character for the fifth time will usually lead to overkill and fatigue. But Iron Man3 suffers from none of the usual ailments.

    The movie starts with a similar premise as its prequel - there has been somebody wronged in the past, who has now returned to claim vengeance. Played by an extremely capable Guy Pearce (Memento), this 'blast-from-the-past' antagonist seemingly has invented some advanced technology which enables him to be much more lethal than Tony Stark's metallic suit. Aiding him in his quest is a Global terrorist (Ben Kingsley), who wishes to rule the entire world.

    The plot is gritty, and Stark takes much greater hits than his past ventures. However, what makes it different from any other Big Bang action flick is the sublime humor that is interspersed in between. The comedy is so spontaneous (and sometimes situational) that it almost seems as Downey has improvised at the very last minute. This makes the film achieve a well rounded structure that will appeal to first time watchers as well as hard core afficionados.

    Watch out for Stark's irreverent discussions with a young kid, and ofcourse for his and Gwyneth Paltrow's sparkling chemistry. Both the actors have seemed to age brilliantly well.

    This film is paisa vasool stuff, and will not disappoint.
