Yes, yes! and more yes!!

While I wasn't as disappointed as you (I think only because even though I really liked the first movie, I never got into the fandom), I felt really let down by this movie. My husband and I saw it yesterday and spent dinner talking about why it didn't work. We were both frustrated that they had so many good ideas and then didn't really develop them. I was most annoyed that they didn't really get into the Vanko/Father Tony/Father story. I think one of the reasons the first movie's ending was so engaging, was that we knew how hurt and conflicted Tony had to be fighting the man who had been a father figure for so many years. There was none of that drama in this movie because they didn't bother to develop the relationship between Vanko and Tony - their parallel stories, how Tony's father had destroyed Vanko's father and the guilt that Tony could have felt over this could have added so much to the final battle.

I could go on and on, but I think I should shut up now.

Thanks for the brilliant rant!
