I thought it was terrible. I wanted to see Mandarin as villain and see Iron Man battle his rings. Where was Shield during this whole thing? The kid in Kentucky, why? All the extra Iron Man suits coming to the rescue seemed to be an easy way out. It bothers me that we are constantly seeing our Super heroes unmasked during fights (Amazing Spider-man 2, Captain America in Avengers and Toney in this movie), I don't know if the actors have in their contacts that their face must be seen a % during the movie or what. We know who is starring as these Super heroes but every time you turn around they have their masks ripped off! I thought this was the weakest of the 3 movies. I was disappointed with the 2nd one when Ivan Vanko (aka Whiplash) ended up fighting him in the end with an iron Man type suit instead of his guantlets! After Avengers it was really, really weak!
