Sorry folks, but I have a real problem with the whole film, the ill-timed banter, the Mandarin "surprise" and a plot more fragmented than Stark's trashed suit. This time, the Downey charm couldn't quite pull it off imo. Nor was he willing to suit up for the first half of the movie it seems. In retrospect, I think this disappointing tactic was perhaps "preparing" us for Stark's disassociation with his mechanical side. But then again, isn't the mechanical side of Stark the whole point? Also, is it possible there is such a thing as too much Downey wit? I think Maybe.
