Honestly if this film had come out at the time Origins did, before all the Ironman films it wouldnt suffer half the flack it gets for the third act
Completely agreed, the effect of Robo-Samurai was diminished by what had came before with Iron Man, it especially reminded me of Iron Monger in IM1, which oddly enough I watch the night before I saw The Wolverine, but the spirit was there.

As for your final paragraph I think the problem is it could never live up to the fight on the train or the Shingen showdown or (fingers crossed) the ninja fight (when we get it) so it was always going to feel lacklustre a touch. I was still recovering from that Shigen duel the first time I watched it that the Robo fight flashed by with me still in a daze of what had come before.
It was certainly difficult as any fight scene is when you pit a human against a giant CGI creation, but I look at Hulk vs Blonski in TIH, I was hoping for something more akin to that, where as Logan spent most of the fight in a stationary block pose, or running.
