I really do not care for Iron Man 3- SPOILERS

I really, really didn't like this film. Tonally, it just felt radically off to me. Then there's the laundry list of issues with it: The random child sidekick? Construction scene climax battle #45630? Weird muddy motivation and power fluctuating goons who get insane amounts of screentime? No actual Iron Man for the vast majority of the film? Some really awkward and juvenile comedy (including reducing Ben Kingsley to poop jokes)? The Mandarin twist? I'm sorry, but just because you don't see a twist coming doesn't make it good. Sometimes it's because it's such a bad idea that no one thinks you'd do it. Well, they did it. I get what they were trying for there with the commentary on terror scapegoats, but they were setting up a cool take on the character and then trashed it and the character. No one would do that with the Joker. Why is it Iron Man's nemesis is treated with so much less respect and shunted for a really boring secondary villain?
