It wasn't just comic book fans who thought that was a very strange turn for the film. But just from an entertainment point of view, it was a pointless twist.


Same here, but do we really expect Ben Kingsly to pull off some MA moves like Mandarin does? It might be just as bad.

i think fans, including me, expected so much of the mandarin.. i mean, the hype was outrageous.. the posters, the tv spots, the casting.. he's the head of a terror organization, i don't think he needs to pull off some ridiculous MA moves.. mandarin could've been using killian to do stuff, not the other way around.. my suspension of disbelief is in full swing here, do something else.. magic, aliens, high tech stuff.. something..

though i don't think that it is a bad movie, it's just a bad wist for the mandarin..

Nah, he could just do a few Kung Fu or Tae Kwan Do moves and that be enough to beat up Stark. They could've set up a scene where Iron's armor is destroyed taking out Killian only for Tony to face the Mandarin. Stark doesn't have any H2H skills so it's conceivable that Kingsley Mandarin would wreck him in a fight. It ends with Stark pulling out that little gizmo, that he gave the kid, to blind Mandarin and knock him out. SHIELD arrives and detains Mandarin in the Vault. Ending scene has Baron Zemo showing up to recruit A.I.M. and the Ten Rings to join HYDRA.

I thought it was brilliant, but I thought the Mandarin was lame anyway.
