Hey guys, here’s my late review for Iron Man 2. I saw this last Thursday, Robin Hood doesn’t interest me at all. The first Iron Man was AMAZING. Lack of action sure, but pure dynamite and turned out to be a huge hit. With anticipation and a wary eye, I went for it. I really liked this movie. It has it’s quirks, it’s not perfect but dang if that’s not a summer blockbuster, I don’t know what is.
I can understand why some didn’t like it. Yes it takes forever to get going. The story at times WAS all over the place. Scar-Jo didn’t really need to be in there, etc. These are all problems that I will agree with. But in my opinion the good outweighs the bad.
Mickey Rourke-DYNAMITE in his role as Whiplash. Sam Rockwell was good to but kinda uneeded. Robert Downey was born to play Tony Stark and I kinda feel the character and he himself have the same personality. The comedic timing is still there which is great. The action is amazing and completely hyped from the last one, especially in the ever so awesome climax chase scene. Sam Jackson was great as Nick Fury. This does prepare you for the Avengers, I said it would be a big commercial for it. It kinda was. The graphics are awesome too, and at times the writing is pretty good. Failed to get this script though ;(
I personally liked Terrance Howard better, Don Cheadle was good but too soft spoken as Rhodey. But HOW in the WORLD is he supposed to just get in the War Machine suit (amazing one at that) and FLY it. Tony didn’t teach him. Movies do that kinda stuff but come on!!!!
Overall, Iron Man 2 is great, to my surprise. I wish it was less Avengers more Iron Man, but we got a good film here. The action is better than the first, but overall the story isn’t. So it’s better yet not as good as the first Iron Man.
I give Iron Man 2 a 7.5 out of 10. A great way to kick off what should be a great summer!
