I can even say that I think I've made my peace with their take on the Mandarin. While I still think they could've executed it better.
I had no problem with the twist, but I do agree that they could've made the fake Mandarin into a threat even after his revelation as a decoy for Killian's true Mandarin. He could've been an Extremis soldier himself, or tried to kill Stark (but failed), and still preserve the twist. I had issues with the comedy route they took with Kingsley's character, but overall I don't think it affected the movie too much, otherwise I won't have given it 8.5/10.
