"Haters.............................. Gonna Hate."

In all honesty, I greatly dislike that twist, but I don't hate Trevor. I just wish the "actual Mandarin" was at least something like the real one from the comics.

Honestly, I loved the Mandarin twist. People complain, but it was cute, it was a genuine surprise, and it did exactly what it was supposed to do: draw attention away from an otherwise obvious bad guy. It was very cleverly done.

My favourite superhero movie, I think. Mostly because it actually managed to surprise me more often than any other. Also the Mandarin was a lot more interesting commentary to issues of terrorism than Bane, while avoiding the pretentious tone of the latest Batman movies.

Even though I hate what they did to the Mandarin in Iron Man 3, I like how menacing and subtle Sir Ben Kingsley made him.

Great job.

Not really my favorite Marvel Flick. And honestly, I was kinda disappointed with how the Mandarin was treated in the movie. We all go in expecting some awesome up and coming anarchist wizard, and we end up getting a hokey Cockney wannabe puppet with a dreadful Navajo impression.... just let me down so hard, and I ended up feeling really bad for Sir Ben Kingsley for having to stoop to such a low.

Sorry for the rant, just expressing my thoughts. Still, really love your work here, man; just shows how much potential the character had. :)

Ah, this movie... it was supposed to make me laugh and entertain me and it failed miserably. I think they went too far on the comedy factor, it felt too forced for me. That kinda explains why I didn't like it.

Good take on the Mandarin. I wish he'd been that badass in the movie.

Yes and no for me, I got it and it was neat, but what really got me was the lava soldiers were more silly than the the Mandarin and his ten rings would have been if they did his "magic" like Thor's. 0-o
It reminds me of the last 2 batman flicks they are good films(well returns was a bit out of whack but less so than MOS) but not that great of a Batman film. I also tend to hate it when they mess with characters so much they might as well make new ones, tho Ledgers Joker was pretty good.
