Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 1
If Killian is the Mandarin then the movie didn't execute it well enough. A lot of people left thinking it was a metaphor. I do believe the director and writers have the final say but for some reason I really can not buy it. I'm actually ok about the twist, if it was a metaphor the execution was done well but if they actually meant for him to be the Mandarin it wasn't done well at all (IMO).
