This film takes too long to build up to an anti-climax. We waited the entire film for Iron Man v War Machine, and the fight lasts a couple of minutes at most. Also, the plot was silly even by comic book standards, and is hindered by the attempts to set up the Avengers spin-off which I felt was un-needed, a simple line of dialogue like they did at the end of The Hulk would have sufficed. One good thing about this film is the performance of Downey Jr, who is brilliant as the arrogant but likeable Stark.
This was a big in your face blockbuster of a movie! The perfect sequel to the original film taking it on a much higher scale with more badass villains and much more cool visual effects and fantastic mind blowing action which really cool. This is the perfect example of good entertainment on every level, great cast as usual, Robert Downey Jr was brilliant again in the role and developed it further! If you loved the original then make sure you dont miss this one of the ultimate popcorn films of the year!!
I couldn't wait to see the second outing after being blown away the last time, what we nearly got was a copy of Spiderman 3.......nearly.
Character development gets in the way for a while, as we see Tony Stark fall and rise again, but when things get going again, WOW. Now I can't wait to see what comes next.
Rourke is excellent as Whiplash, but I felt the movie needed a "bigger" villain, kinda like how Dr Octopus wasn't "bad" enough in Spiderman, are they affraid to give us a truly evil "bad guy" these days?
A very good follow on, but definately more of a stepping stone to what's coming next.
A very poor sequel to the brilliant original. The producers seem to think increasing the noise level, action scenes & one liners in this film will suffice. Unfortunately not - Downey hamming it up and delivering unfunny quips is little short of a waste of talent. The special effects aren't even that special, the flying scenes particularly are basically just a blur! Throw in the director also in an embarassingly unfunny role and u have a film only a 10 year old could enjoy.
Before you start am a very big comic book fan and iron man was a great film.I have been to florida 12 times and i love going to universal just cause of the marvel island.This movie did nothing for me,i found far to much talking in the movie and less on the action.I do not like the RAMBO action type film but i do like some kind of action in the movies i go to see, for me i just found there was far to much talking and i got bored so i walked out after about 1 hour 10 mins of the film.I just hope the 3rd film is better.
Being a Marvel fan & comic book fan,was looking very forward to this & it didnt let me down. Was a really bloody awesome film as great as first one! It was great seeing War Machine & the hints they drop for the Avengers! like the other reviwer said stay behind the after credits you dont wanna miss it :D!
Bring on Captain America & Thor!
Though not as good as the first, this film combines both action and comedy and the result is an amazing film, the only gripe one would have with this is the Hammer character gets on your nerves a bit with his cockyness although Downey Jr plays being the cockey Tony Stark so well there is something about the Hammer actor, It's not as good as the original but if you love both action and comedy you will bloody love this movie.
Bring on the blu-ray!
