Yet another ridiculously high rated Marvel movie, we get it Marvel fanboys you just love it when a new Marvel movie comes out, so much that you forget any flaws in it and give it a 10 or a 9 anyways.
But come on seriously? Wouldn’t you rather they spent a little time at actually writing a somewhat decent script and making it a bit more entertaining than to praise EVERYTHING they do to the skies just because you want a new chapter in the Marvel universe?
Cause this is NOT a good movie, 35 minutes of decent at best action and 85 minutes of nonsensical blabber.
Mickey Rourke was the only highlight in this movie, the scene at the racetrack with him was really cool but then he just became a wasted opportunity just like the rest of the movie.
A really boring turd of a film.
Says a lot, but took now a decade to finally see this sequel. Certainly belongs in the lower tier of the MCU as the plot really felt disjointed and even though it was only two hours, really short for a comic book movie nowadays, still felt so much longer. That said, had a few okay moments yet can’t really say anything stood out. **2.75/5**
Great beginning and end, not so great in the middle
At its high points – the first act and the climax – Iron Man 2 is actually better than the first film. Everything up to and including the action scene in Monaco is just great fun to watch: the action, the character interactions, and of course Robert Downey Jr’s wonderful portrayal of Tony Stark. And the action scene at the end is pretty epic.
The problem is, the film just stops being so much fun in-between. In a large proportion of this time, it’s either going too slowly with little happening that’s exciting or even particularly interesting, or it’s providing some silly moments like Iron Man lounging on a giant display donut. To be fair, there’s no problem with the many subplots this movie has: they all blend together quite smoothly.
The acting in this film deserves credit: almost everybody does a great job. Robert Downey Jr and Gwyneth Paltrow are just as entertaining as they were in the first film, Jon Favreau gets more to do as Stark’s chauffeur, Don Cheadle is actually a little better than Terrence Howard as Rhodie (again, maybe because he has a bigger role), Mickey Rourke portrays a decent but overall ordinary villain, and once Scarlett Johansson is allowed to do something substantial with her own action sequence, she’s well worth watching. The only weak link is Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, who gets quite annoying after a while.
Overall, Iron Man 2’s slow middle section prevents it from being better than the first film as a whole, which is a shame considering how brilliant the beginning and end segments are.
Messy storyline, no real plot, no theme
Just saw Iron Man 2, and while I thought the first one was a bit overrated, I had hopes. They quickly dissipated.
Firstly, there was no theme. The first Iron Man had a theme – it was about Tony Stark changing his life and becoming a better man. Iron Man 2 had no theme at all.
Secondly, the plot was messy: there just happens to be another brilliant scientist who can build an advanced power source in a squalid Moscow shack? Okay, we had to swallow that Tony Stark could build one in the middle of freakin’ Afghanistan, but twice? That’s too much.
Weren’t Pepper and Tony supposed to get together at the end of the first film? In this one they stay at arm’s length, and I wondered if there was any romance there at all. That scene from the preview where Pepper kisses his helmet and Tony jumps from the back of the plane after it? Gone.
The Avengers? Samuel L Jackson with an eye patch? Who the hell wears an eye patch today and doesn’t get laughed at? Why introduce paper-thin characters that really do nothing? And it’s not like anything actually happened with them anyway, so why waste out time and goodwill?
Thirdly, the film didn’t really go anywhere in terms of advancing the Iron Man story. There were a few interesting concepts – what does Iron Man do now that everyone knows who he is? Will the US military get their hands on it? – but these, while addressed, where never really given much thought. Instead, Tony’s best friend (Cheadle) steals the other suit. What? Even after being given an order to do so, why would his friend do that?
Fourth, the acting: Gwenyth Paltrow is a terrible actress. So it Scarlett Johansson, but at least she’s smoking hot. Don Cheadle is no Terrance Howard. While Howard himself isn’t a great actor, he owned the role in Iron Man 1. Cheadle just didn’t have the personality and charisma, and you’ll note he gets very little screen time too.
It wasn’t a completely horrible film, but it wasn’t worth the 7.9 IMDb gives it. Much closer to a flat 5.0. The direction is a bit messy – the action scenes aren’t as clean as they should be. Some great SXF, as you’d expect. Save your money for the DVD.
