1 Directed and co-written by Shane Black (who scripted “Lethal Weapon”), “Iron Man 3” races on a high-octane mix of spectacle, sarcasm and smarts. It balances massive, show-offy effects with hip knowingness and quirky human touches. It’s a comic-book world seen not from the viewpoint of a fanboy but a wiseguy adult earthling. With Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, “IM3” is doing boffo box office, and deservedly so.
