The two things that kept the middle hour afloat IMO were Rockwell riffing by himself and Downey and Paltrow riffing off each other. The plot was just blah, imo. So seeing those three performers come alive in some scenes and just have fun was the most entertaining parts from the Vanko in prison scene to the Stark Expo at the end. I feel this movie was a few clicks away from SM3 if not for their superior acting scenes. Even if it was not narrative driven.
In my opinion, of course.
Must say, you're right on the money about the script and Rockwell. He pretty much saved the movie for me
