Iron Man 3 is way too violent for family audiences. I really enjoyed the Avengers last year, but this Marvel outing just felt dull. Tony Stark is as funny as ever, but his clever one-liners couldn't lift the movie out of uninteresting and unappealing. The story about the Mandarin and the regenerating psychopaths was just too much for me. And there is quite a bit of profanity as well. Save your time and money on this one, and hope that the next Marvel movie, Thor 2, is worthwhile.
