yes writing. There's no sand monologue or yippies in Iron Man 2 and 3. Also quit trying to put Iron Man 2 and 3 on the same level as each other. 2 is clearly inferior. The only people who act like 3 is a bad film at all are the ones who are pissed at the Mandarin twist because Marvel outsmarted them and hid it from the marketing team because god forbid anyone actually conceal their twist instead of revealing it a la Terminator Genesis (not spelling it their way)
waste of ben kingsley and a potential reinevention of iron man
mandarin is iron man's biggest nemesis besides iron man
it was more of dissapointment for most than this "outsmarted"
not all twists are good
tony was mega dumb in the film , and the lack of decent weapons in the suit were mystifying
