I'll start out with a non-spoiler.... stay until after ALL of the credits roll. There's an extra scene.
Now I'll start talking about stuff that is a spoiler, so don't keep looking if you don't want to know.
I was surprised with the Mandarin twist. I only read a few things about this movie over the past year or so and one of the things I *thought* I had read was how Ben Kingsley plays one of the most treacherous villains in quite some time. Well "Trevor" wasn't very treacherous, was he? LOL But I'll admit I laughed a lot especially when there was a score on the soccer game and he started to sing "Ole Ole Ole Oleeeeee".
I also didn't think Pepper was dead. I figured with that "crap" in her she'd survive and then come to Tony's aid.
Loved the kid! I'm surprised that my youngest hasn't tried to make a potato launcher yet.
All in all, my family really liked this movie!
