Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) is back as Iron Man, and stronger than ever. In this third film of the Iron Man series, a terrorist named the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) threatened to destroy America. Unfortunately Stark's former security guard, Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) was injured in an explosion, which was caused by the Mandarin. Stark was very upset, though determined to face the evil terrorist; the problem was the terrorist got to Stark first. He destroyed Stark's Malibu mansion, and all his high-tech toys. Luckily Stark (Iron Man) lived, though his beloved metal suit was injured. Stark had to try and survive on his own, and save the world without his protective shell. 

The character's in the film were great and entertaining. Though very violent, Stark always managed to add some humor, even in dangerous situations.
When Iron Man's suit wasn't working properely, initially Stark was upset, though he made the best of the situation and did what he needed to do to survive.
Parents need to be aware of the violent content, see details below.
