New movies roundup: ‘Iron Man 3′ does the job

We're sure it won't matter to the fanboys, but Ann Hornaday says "Iron Man 3" is "designed less as an artisanal object or visual entertainment than a full-body assault on the senses."

"Aroused" is a "mildly provocative" film about adult film actresses, writes Michael O'Sullivan.

 Hornaday writes that "At Any Price" hews "to a conventional structure that feels both overworked and undercooked."

 In "A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet," a "lack of focus tempers the overall force of the individual stories, some of which are truly riveting," writes Stephanie Merry.

"Kon-Tiki" is an earnest take on a 1947 raft trip that includes characters with relatively indistinguishable characters, Mark Jenkins writes.

"Love Is All You Need" is a "slight," yet "modestly absorbing" film, according to Hornaday.

Salman Rushdie co-wrote the script for "Midnight's Children," based on his own novel. Oddly enough, the movie looks beautiful, but is "overburdened by unnecessary plot points," writes Merry.

"The Reluctant Fundamentalist" is a "gripping and complex drama," O'Sullivan writes.
