I would say this is the weakest of the 3 Iron Man movies. Downey Jr. is good as always, but the plot is a hot mess. The movie could have developed a bad-ass villain to rival Iron Man 2's Whiplash, but perhaps decided it couldn't pull it off and left us with Iron Man fighting some real lame-o's. There's a lot of plot holes and internal logical problems in the story. The special effects, as always are good, but I felt disappointed by the end. The supporting characters were fine (Ben Kingsley does well with what he has to work with), but unfortunately its the same damn plot in every action movie this summer about the President or VP being in danger, which makes you feel like they're not even trying.
