Synopsis- Continuing right after the first “IRON MAN” movie, this one blasts off with Tony Stark facing new problems with the government, his friendship, relationship, suit, trust circle, competition, legacy- and even his own health. As he thinks he is invincible, and believes no one can match him, he is attacked by Whiplash (who wants revenge for what the Stark legacy has done to his family) and he gets a wake up call- as everyone realizes he is more human then they believe.
Yes- this movie IS what you expected it to be, when you saw the trailers. Great action, amazing job once again by Robert Downey JR and more characters.
As a fan-boy i could not help but squeak as i found all the Easter eggs through the movie, after waiting in line to see this bad boy at midnight.
Reviews have been saying that there are plot-holes in the movie and things that did not make sense. I, as someone with logic- that understands the line of logic MARVEL movies have, disagree and think these people are fucking retarded.
I will address these complaints right now: (SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
“How could Rhodey have worn and used the suit so quickly?!” There was a 6 month gap. His best friend is Tony Stark. Hes a pilot of advanced aircraft. Think about it.
“Justin Hammer was a slimy cartoon-like character” He is a douche in the SOURCE MATERIAL and he comes from a comic book (COMIC-book), what did you expect? Sam Rockwell did a perfect job of bringing that to the screen.
“How could Iron Man create an Element so quickly?” 1) He didnt create it, he found it and opened it, his FATHER invented it, but couldnt work it because he had older 70’s technology. 2) Hes fucking Ironman, im pretty sure he can do whatever the fuck he wants. Watch the first 20 minutes of the first movie.
“Whiplash hates IronMan for no reason, he was jut thrown in the movie” Actually, his dad was put to fucking JAIL by the Stark family, making him poor and he died in a bed filled with piss. Watching Tony Stark use the technology HE came up with. And his son instead of having a fortune, had to watch as Tony got laid by literally every hot chick in the western hemisphere.
END OF SPOILER
Loved everything about this movie. The only thing I do not like, was the last fight scene with Whiplash… i need more violence, less cliche deaths. But that was very minor.
I also do not like how Jon Favreau gave himself the unnecessary screen time he did, because hes the director and he wants to have more screentime, and since hes in charge- he can do it. Didnt like that. He was a very minor character that had 4 unnecessary scenes.
But the rest- i mean WOW! Best cameos, best easter eggs, best after the credits scenes EVER.
