** Tony daring the Mandarin to attack him can be understood with the emotional strain he was under. Not so much his sitting and waiting for the attack afterwards as he turns out to have no real plan ready for it. At the very least, he could have gotten Pepper out of harm's way.

Not so much his sitting and waiting for the attack afterwards as he turns out to have no real plan ready for it. Even when Pepper makes reasonable argument for leaving their home for safety, Tony argues that staying home, that has now been made a bullseye for a dangerous terrorist ogranization, with no apparent security systems (you know, aside [[spoiler:those dozens of Iron Man armors in the basement]]) and simply wait for an attack to happen. [[IdiotBall Just one of the main factors of the entire plot for this movie seems to be that Tony is completely arrogant meatbrain.]]

* BrokenBase: The movie could write books on how much it divided people, and is easily the most divisive film of the MCU thus far.

* BrokenBase: The movie could write books on how much it divided people, and is easily the most divisive film of the MCU thus far. Opinions tend to be very enthusiastic in either direction, with few in the middle.



* LoveItOrHateIt: Probably the most polarizing film in the entire Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse as of Phase 2. Opinions tend to be very enthusiastic in either direction, with few in the middle.

** The Mandarin's RaceLift. People tend to be either understanding of it or refuse to watch the movie entirely because of it.

*** Bit of a moot point since Age of Ultron revealed that he built more suits and is still Iron Man

** While [[spoiler:Killian]] admits it's a flimsy excuse on their part to justify the assassination, exactly how responsible ''was'' the President in keeping oil barons out of prison after they caused a major oil spill?
** A popular theory about the Mandarin is that [[spoiler:Trevor Slattery was all just an act so he would get a reduced prison sentence, and that he used the mind control ring on Killian to have him say he's the real Mandarin]]. Of course, this was later {{Jossed}} in ''All Hail the King'', where it was revealed that [[spoiler:there is a real Mandarin who is upset that Slattery impersonated him]].
* AuthorsSavingThrow: In the Film/{{Marvel One Shot|s}} ''All Hail The King'', [[spoiler:it's revealed that the ''real'' Mandarin is still out there and is neither Trevor nor Killian, thus saving the character for those who did not like the twist]]. Ironically, this was ''not'' done due to negative fan reaction, as it was already planned during production of the movie, explaining the plot holes in the first ''Iron Man'' film that would be created if [[spoiler: Killian was the real Mandarin.]]

* CriticalDissonance: Many critics claim this was the best Iron Man movie and possibly better than The Avengers. Fans on the other hand feel this film failed and is one of the worst MCU movies by far.

** Back when ''[[Film/TheAvengers2012 The Avengers]]'' debuted at movie theaters, ''Charges.com.br'' character Tobby guessed that their biggest foe would be the Green Goblin. Without the movie rights to [[Franchise/SpiderMan the Spider-Man franchise]], the closest thing that could be used was [[NormanOsborn Norman Osborn's]] other alter ego Iron Patriot.

** The fact that Tony doesn't spend much time "suited up", and vice versa (the Mark 42 and other suits get a lot of screentime without Tony actually inside). While some enjoyed seeing how {{badass}} Tony can be without the suit, others wanted to see Iron Man spend more time as, you know, ''Iron Man'' (and the suit as his armor rather than a remote-controlled robot or a JARVIS-piloted drone).

* VocalMinority: although most online discussion of this movie would have you think it's a universally-despised train wreck that will stain Marvel's cinematic record forever, a quick Google search will tell you it still holds a very respectable 79% audience score on Website/RottenTomatoes and a 7.3/10 on Website/IMDb, meaning the vast majority of viewers liked it, and its overall reception was squarely ''average'' for the MCU.
