The idea that Happy Hogan's favorite television show is Downton Abbey (2010) was at the suggestion of Jon Favreau, who is actually a big fan of the British series. See more »
Tony flew from his home in California to Rose Hill Tennesse and Jarvis reported having less than five percent power remaining, which is why Tony crash landed there. The "clean slate" protocol involved the remaining iron man suits flying from California to Florida, a distance of over 3,000 miles, this would have taken many hours to accomplish, and furthermore, how is it that all the iron man suits could have flow that far in such a short time and still had power to fight Killian's henchmen?

A famous man once said, 'We create our own demons.' Who said that? What does that even mean? Doesn't matter. I said it 'cause he said it. So now, he was famous and that basically getting said by two well-known guys. I don't, uh... I'm gonna start again.
Let's track this from the beginning.

This is the first Marvel film that has a prologue (the Iron Man armors are detonated) before the opening logos appear. See more »
This movie has lots of special effects and lots of noise and lots of excellent actors, but it forgot to include one thing: a story. Well, actually, there is a story, of sorts, but it is so superficial as to render it moot. This movie is proof that special effects alone do not make for a good movie, or for even a fair movie. When Miss Penny has to bail out Iron Man, that's a sure sign that the script department is desperate. But that aside, the story is so shallow and the bad guys so predictable that the movie loses dramatic power, rendering it stale. Of course, this can happen when a comic book story is transposed onto the screen. If not portrayed correctly, the story will not be taken seriously, and the movie tanks. Iron Man 1 and 2 managed to avoid that problem; this movie does not. As a result, we have an Iron Man who offers nothing new and is dealing with bad guys who are laughable. Ben Kingsley's performance is a joke. Robert Downey Jr. is, as usual, excellent as Iron Man, but without a viable script, his presence cannot save this movie from its mediocrity, and who wants to watch mediocrity?
