ELLE reviews Iron Man 3

Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr star

MOST POPULAR

Iron Man 3 ticks all the boxes. There’s epic action and adventure (involving Robert Downey Junior), a psychotic villain (hello Guy Pearce), a cute romance and Gwyneth Paltrow.
The story in a nutshell? Iron Man’s world is destroyed. Without his money and genius inventions he is forced to answer a question that has always haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
We don't want to give anything away - and frankly, RDJ is easy on the eye with or without the armoured suit or the answer – so let’s just say that Iron Man 3 is a great superhero romp. Plus, it’s funny. You will probably laugh… out loud.
For now at least, RDJ as Iron Man is our number one on-screen superhero. (We’re not fickle, just aware that Henry Cavill in Man of Steel is coming soon).
Iron Man 3 is in cinemas from Friday April 26
