Default Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 1

The reason why I didn't like the role reversal is that I really dug the version that Kingsley had come up with and so I was disappointed that the character was barely in the film and, in fact, not actually in it at all.

And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
