Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 2
The Mandarin is like New Coke. You're given ads for something like the original classic people are familiar with, but given a modern twist. But you open the bottle and take a giant swig of Aldrich Killian.
After my first viewing of Iron Man 3, I HATED this twist with such strong nerd passion. After the second viewing, it grew on me a little more. Tomorrow, when the bluray comes out, I'll watch a make my final judgment. I just still don't know if I'm mad or intrigued by the twist. I'm definitely still mad about the advertising ploy, but the twist itself (advertising aside) I'm still on the fence about.
