Default Re: Official Iron Man 3 rate/review thread. - Part 1

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
On the subject of villains...

I felt Guy Pearce was good as Aldrich Killian. His reveal to be The Mandarin strengthens his character... If you have the mindset all along that it's HIM who's the Mandarin, the twist isn't as bad. I didn't mind at all.

My favourite villain in the film however, was neither of the Mandarins... It was their good ol' bodyguard, Eric Savin. I doubt anybody will agree with me on this, but he was honestly (behind RDJ, of course, but that's different) my favourite character in the film. I have no idea why, either. He just wasn't like your typical henchman. Hey, maybe he should have been the Mandarin! Was hoping he'd survive, but ah well.

I don't really see how this film has weak villains at all... They're just not portrayed in the traditional way you'd expect villains to be.
