  A bit of a let down.

| | See all ChArMaInE10's reviews (2)

After seeing the first of the Iron Man movies I decided straight away I had to see the second.
I must say when it came the box was perfect condition and delivery was speedy, I watched this the same evening as recieving it but in my opinion it was no way near as good as the first film. It seemed like they tried too hard to make it more interesting and kinda failed. A real shame.

  Scarlet J is the only GOOD thing about this movie

| | See all DVDstore1's reviews (71)

Her stunts, looks, attitude is just superb. The rest of the movie is by no means anywhere near as good as the first one. M.Rourke's performance i thought was atrocious and R.Downey Jr was extremely irritating! wouldn't recommend it.

  Not the Best sequal, but not the worst

| | See all DiskoNick's reviews (4)

I was hugely impressed with the first Iron Man film, the mix of action, humour, quality sound and superb effects made it possibly the best superhero genre film out there. Sadly, as if often the case, this sequal doesn't live up to expectation.

The film is entertaining, with once again some very impressive effects and sound (5.1 is outstanding here!), but the script and casting could have been better. The storyline is paper thin, with the lack of building new charatchers or adding dept to those already in place. Don Cheadle, despite being a fine actor is poorly cast in this and GP might as well not have bothered reading the script for Pepper Potts, as she much have to only deliver a dozen or so lines.

Despit all this, it is still better than 75% of other films in the market and will provide you with some mindless entertainment, perfect for a Saturday night in or a lazy Sunday. I just hope that their saving some of the better work for Thor/Captain American and the Avengers film

  Overcooked and Overstuffed.

| | See all DeckyStrikesBack's reviews (63)

What a poor sequel. Its too busy trying to set up and advsertise an Avengers movie that its not even concerned about being its own movie. Whiplash is way underused and after the fight scene at the racetrack this film flatlines to the point you could fastforward chunks of it. The final fight lasted a good 40 seconds,im not even joking.This film was rushed into production with an unfinished script and it shows.There are moments of greatness,the opening scene with Iron Man falling through the sky with AC/DC playing,and seeing Iron Man and War Machine fighting side by side,but the good bits are few and far between. I dont blame Jon Favreau for jumping ship.

  Disappointing

| | See all mrsross's reviews (3)

I have to say....I am disappointed.
I really enjoyed the first Iron Man but the second one didn't do it for me at all. I thought it was just one huge ego boost for Robert Downey Jnr, which is a shame as he's a good actor already. I found the over confident, loud character such a change from the first film and that is what I found disappointing.
I mean, how many superheroes go bragging about their superhero status?! It also seemed a little rushed to me whereas the first one had a great storyline to it.
It isn't one I want to watch again.
