The allegory left me cold.

That final fight scene was polarizing for me and my son. He loved it as much as any Marvel fight and I hated it. I was waiting the whole film for Tony to really get to do hi s Iron man stuff and this wasn't it.

The closest to being Iron man was the plane sequence and he wasn't even in the suit.
