Iron Man 2

The sequel to 2008's Iron Man takes place six months later, when Tony Stark's identity-reveal is taking its toll.

Robert Downey Jr reprises his role as the hero, while two new villains are introduced. Whiplash (Mickey Rourke) is a tough Russian guy who has constructed his own suit with electro-charged whips. Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) is a rival industrialist. Scarlett Johansson plays Stark's new assistant, but is more than she seems...

Highway to Hell!

Compelling action packed adventure, Great explosions probally because of USA lol no surprize if is. Loved the storyline, The great thing was it wasnt a movie which you watch and halfway through want it to end, e.g - maybe Narnia

I was shocked at how good it was...

Was not looking forward to watching this movie but some good twists in this movie and i found it very enjoyable and funny. I would watch this again, but not my favourite movie.

Deeply lame... and suspiciously right wing...

Not within a country mile of the very cool original. Meandering and uninteresting, with the bad guy out-numbered two to one... Where's the suspense in that? Additionally they seem to be selling Stark as a "good" arms dealer, with his enemy being the "bad" arms dealer. WTF? Since when did being an arms dealer become ok with Hollywood? (My guess is when...

= (Transformers 2/ Batman & Robin) x Gilmore Girls

I loved Iron Man 1. It was a movie I could recommend to guys and girls across most ages, and even if super hero action films weren't their thing, they al generally enjoyed it and thought it was pretty cool. Iron Man 2 was still entertaining but could not reach the heights of the first. Some glimpses of great action scenes but then always left wanting....

Isn't as much fun as its predecessor, but by the time the smoke clears, it'll do.

I suspect I will now need an Iron Man suit of my own to protect me from the wrath of hardcore fans, but I hereby confess this latest outing did little to excite me, and in fact underwhelmed me at every turn.

Well, that didn't take long. Everything fun and terrific about "Iron Man," a mere two years ago, has vanished with its sequel. In its place, Iron Man 2 has substituted noise, confusion, multiple villains, irrelevant stunts and misguided story lines.

Rourke and Rockwell make satisfying, complementary villains, while Downey Jr. delivers again. Shame this sequel feels inessential, over-busy and a little, well, mechanical. Nothing they can’t put right for Iron Man 3.
