This 'enemies not being dangerous' thing proves my point. IM3 is paying a price. Not in box office gross, obviously, but some of Black's intentions clearly didn't pay off with some. (Or maybe it's too much to ask of some fans to accept that the third act of a SH movie isn't precisely the expected hero-villain one-on-one.)
The third act still had the hero-villain confrontation with Stark and Killian. The mooks were plenty dangerous--I just wasn't sold on the main villains.
