Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 1
I'll admit I had to do my research on Mandarin before seeing this film. He seemed interesting to me and I was intrigued at seeing BK's portrayal and Shane's spin. When I saw the movie I wasn't upset but I was let down because I thought Sir Ben was doing a great job (and he still did with the Trevor character).
I'm divided I guess in that knowing what I know about the comic Mandarin and how it could have been and knowing what they did is that it worked in the film but it was a waste of potential at the same time.
(Ultimately I was more upset that we didn't get a definitive "Iron Man moment" like so many that were in IM and IM2)
