I agree with Bill. I thought this was better than 2 but not as good as 1. I liked the twist. SPOILERS AHEAD:
Without the twist, Mandarin is just Bane. That would have been too Batman-like since the first thing I thought of when I saw Killian was Jim Carrey's portrayal of The Riddler. In the end it was handled better, but Pearce's take on the nerdy Killian was a bit cringe-worthy.
The after-credits coda was funny, but a little disappointing.
I think that Avengers 2 will center around getting Stark to "suit up" and save the day.
