Not near the amount of holes you're suggesting.
And Rises had a superior antagonist, actual THREAT and sense of dread and urgency by the film's climax. A legit meaningful character arc from the protagonist that gift wrapped the entire trilogy.
Superior cinematography, script, dialogue and acting all around (beyond RDJ and Kingsley's odd performance) IM 3 was atrocious, and corny ... like most Marvel Studio films.
TDK Rises has an accurate ranking of around 87% or 88%.
IM 3 was like a watered down, boring ass version of TDK Rises with a mythology that isn't near as rich.
Iron Man: 8/10
Iron Man 2: 5/10
