One of the best superhero origin movies, without a doubt.

Add all of that along with an unforgettable performance from Robert Downey Jr., you get lightning in a bottle.
Iron Man 3:
Good story, fantastic action, funny, quotable ... Just an all around great comic book movie, action movie, and Christmas movie.
Iron Man 2:
This movie may be the "worst" of the three, but I still think it's a lot of fun. I don't think it deserves the hate that it gets; not by a long shot. A lot of the stuff covered in this movie (Nick Fury, Black Widow, etc.) was necessary as a stepping stone for The Avengers.
Easily my favorite superhero movie trilogy to date, as I've enjoyed all three movies quite a lot.
I agree with everything you said, I loved all 3 films and easily the best thrilogy to date, I really had no issue with the twist, been a fan of the character since I was 9 and frankly i liked the twist, will there be a 4th installment, who knows, but right now, I am super thrilled with what we have gotten.
