Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 2
I think only the hardcore Iron Man comic fans would be FULLY disappointed by The Mandarin. Personally, I've got mixed feelings. Ben Kingsley was awesome (If Ben Kingsley's character would have been the real deal, it would've been so amazing!!!!), but on the other hand, Pearce was really badass and I loved him in the movie!
So again, this is one thing I may not be so disappointed about, I wouldn't say they screwed up Mandarin, it was just... something different, a different approach. It could've been better, sure, but I'm not let down by what we've got.
