Re: Official Iron Man 3 rate/review thread. - Part 1
For me the best villains;
A) are the ones that look like the hero doesn't have a hope of defeating (T-1000, Vader, Agent Smith) they are a genuine threat.
B) are connected to hero, through blood or familiarity.
C) from their point of view what they are doing makes sense and is the right thing to do.
The villain in IM3 ticks a lot of these boxes but the execution IMHO was poor and I was sold one thing and given another (a major reason I didn't like Inception).
