Now that his Super Hero secret has been revealed, Tony Stark's life is more intense than ever. Everyone wants in on the Iron Man technology, whether for power or profit... But for Ivan Vanko, it's revenge! Tony must once again suit up and face his most dangerous enemy yet, but not without a few new allies of his own.
Just as good as the first, but here is the problem. Now don't get me wrong. I am a comic nerd. In fact I had a total nerdgasim when watching this. But I will be serious. The story was a little rushed. The ending was resolved too quick at the end. You were kind of hoping for more of an epic battle, but you didn't get it. Now all the characters and the visual effects were amazing. So I give credit for that. But I just don't want them to make the same mistake as the Spider-Man movies; having them go slowly downhill. So the nerds out there, the movie had many references to the Avengers which is very exciting. Robert Downey Jr. was still the same quirky Stark. Gwyneth Paltrow seemed a little off as Pepper though. Don Cheadle was an excellent replacement from Terrance Howard for Rhodey. Not that Howard is a bad actor, it just seems like Cheadle wanted it more. Scarlett Johansson was a great Black Widow. She had the looks and the moves. Of course Samuel L. Jackson was good as Nick Fury. Then the two villains were Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke. Rockwell was pretty good. I really wish there was more of Rourke though. He is just 100% creepy and mean looking. Two side characters that were enjoyable were Jon Favreau, the director, and Clark Gregg who played Agent Coulson. So overall the cast was really good. I just wanted more from the story. But that doesn't mean that the movie was bad.
All I can say is wow good story and awesome action. Great plot and nice set of actors. Contains humor and serious parts as well. Oh and don't leave the theaters hen credits roll;) there are hints of upcoming marvel movies including the avengers initiative and 2 others;)) well worth the RS 200!"
I saw the new Iron Man movie last weekend. Judging by the big hype about this movie and the fact that I thoroughly enjoyed the first, I came into the theater with rather high expectations. I was essentially hoping for a repeat of the Dark Night. The first Batman was good, and the sequel was amazing. I thus expected the same for the Iron Man series. Furthermore, I expected to listen to a soundtrack of the movie composed entirely of AC DC music, due to the song played during the previews. I figured, as a rock and roll fan, that no matter what, I would at least get to enjoy some good music throughout the music. A long two hours later, I walked out of the theater rather disappointed.
I decided that the main problem with the movie was that there were too many things going on at the same time, and the movie did a poor job mixing them together into a comprehensible plot.

Downey's charisma aside, there just isn't much reason to spend the extra $ for the big screen...it's a cut-and-paste job of numerous preview-scenes (very well made, but still just flash-and-sizzle). If you're in the mood for McDonalds, this will hit the spot, but don't expect anything more...wait for Netflix...spend your money on yummy-And-nutritious. IronMan1 had half the explosions and acting talent, and was still twice as good.
All I can say is wow good story and awesome action. Great plot and nice set of actors. Contains humor and serious parts as well. I will see it again. Oh and don't leave the theaters hen credits roll;) there are hints of upcoming marvel movies including the avengers initiative and 2 others;)) well worth the $9!!
