    ★½

    Psychological stories are among my favorite forms of storytelling along with the Western genre, Samurai films, and martial art films.

Not only does it have to serve as a sequel, but also a bridge for the preceding events of the pseudo-sequel The Avengers. Walking a thin line in balancing two different series both effecting the protagonist into one story is no easy task. For the better part Iron Man 3…
