My problem wasn't with the Mandarin's portrayal (I loved Mandarillian) but that it felt very disconnected from the first two movies. They had an opportunity to make it truly personal between him and Tony by showing that the Mandarin had been behind everything with Stane and Hammer, but instead they gave us a weak motivation for Killian, which (to me, at least) dampened the conflict with Tony. It felt superficial. I mean, I loved that they actually had a 1 vs. 1 confrontation at the end, but it could've been so much better if the stakes were even higher than they were.
