When Tony is zip-tied to the bed, he asks one of the guards the distance between Miami and Tennessee. The guard says 832 miles, which is correct for some parts of Tennessee. This means Tony's armor is ~832 miles away. Even assuming his armor travels at 1000 miles/hour, it would take his armor almost an hour to get to him, rather than the few minutes shown in the movie. Tony's armor would have to travel at almost 10,000 miles/hour to get to Tony in 5 minutes. The current airspeed record for a plane is only 2,193 miles/hour. Tony's armor, at the current airspeed record, would still take 23 minutes to get to him. See more »
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.

Hated it at first, I like it more each time I re-watch
The first time I saw this movie I really didn't like it, I had just come off the high of "The Avengers" and let me make it clear, this one isn't as good. That said it is significantly better than Iron Man 2 and that's because the story is deeper and direct. There's a lot less focus on explosions and fancy effects (although there is plenty of that) and more on dialogue and character development.
One thing I like about this movie is that you get to learn more about Tony Stark, as much as I loved his arrogance in IM1, 2 at the end of Avengers he was humbled and that continues in this one. On the one hand I love the suits and the fancy technology but it's Robert Downey's sarcasm and wit that make him so great for this franchise.
Yes there is a big plot twist but it by no means ruins the movie and while I was not a fan of the ending, you can see where things are going towards Avengers 2.
It may not be for you, my only advice is to make sure you watch it again. I was angry the first time I did and thought the movie was a joke, each additional time I've watched it I take something more from it and enjoy it a little more.
