    Never like such comparisons in reviews. Feels like the writer can't actually describe the film without referencing others.

    This film deserves every penny and cent from everyone just so that the powers that be can start handing over projects to Shane Black, he works way too little for a guy that talented. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is one of my favourite films of all time.

    That's exactly the movie in a nuttshell!

    But really, and I mean REALLY, you must prepare yourselves for the twist. I won't spoil it here, but I'm warning the hardcore fans. Be prepared for it. It's... really something! Not quite what you think you already know

    i am gunna watch extra close. cause there's got to be more going on with mandarin than that. Even with what the "reveal" is meant to be. I am sure there has got to be more than that.

    Is the Mandarin immortal? Are his methods supernatural?

    I read on IMDB that:

    LOL...all I can say is Mandarin is a COLLECTOR. That is the best hint I can give.

    What does it means?

    Seems like this film was never intended to have Mandarin at all, and then they just threw in a pseudo-Mandarin to please fans.

    Guess he won't be showing up in the Masters of Evil. Mandarin never even had a chance.

    No, he really works within the context of the film. It's just not THE Mandarin you'd expect and know. AT ALL.

    idk..I still think there's more to it than what's been seen. I mean, people on IMBD said that there's more to it than "the twist". people who have seen the movie, and said that "the twist", isn't really..idk lol weird. wishful thinking i guess

    Now you're going to tell me that Ducard is R'as...

    Again, spoilers are somewhat problematic as they are snapshots of a film, robbed of well-needed context.

    what if
    the mandarin is playing Killian by "being a pawn of his"?

    I mean, based on what fiege said about multiple viewings,

    and this person who saw it on imbd said this

    Actually, that is partly it. The ending or "twist" is much more innovative, as another poster had used, than that.

    Killian is not as powerful as he seems or thinks he is. Again, I cannot hint this enough. The Mandarin is smart and a Collector, LOVES to collect.

    Early reviews are overwhelmingly positive.
    As if anyone is shocked. Hats off to you, Marvel

    Can't wait for everyone to call that twist "genius" and "revolutionary". Maybe the twist for Thor 2 is that natalie portman's character is a man, and the twist in winter soldier is that Bucky is all in capt's head.
