Re: Official Iron Man 3 rate/review thread.
I expect Mandarin to be viewed similar to Bane; many will have their complaints. My complaint is lack of powered rings; I had hoped given TA, IM3 would veer into the realm of science-fantasy. However, much as I've found many layers with Bane, I imagine others will find more the Mandarin than they see at first glance.
