One of my all time favorites.
If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.
Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.
All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
It wasn't as good as the first movie. The introduction of two new superheroes seemed unnecessary, like a buildup to a deus ex machina. It also relied too much on the villain, Asian Ironman clone. Whereas the first movie explored Ironman's character development and learning new lessons, in this movie, he not only didn't evolve his character, he seemed to forget some of the lessons he learned in the previous movie. In the previous movie, he transformed from a uncaring party-boy into someone who left behind his bad ways behind to pursue peace. This movie had one good point, the fact that Ironman was slowly being poisoned by his own suit. This could have been expanded to symbolize how his pride was ruining him. He could have undergone a character transformation in this movie, to stop being so prideful, while simultaneously finding his cure. Unfortunately, the writers did not expand into deeper realms like they did for the previous movie.
Under developed characters Plot borrowed from the first one Generally cliched and unoriginal Lame humour Crappy fight scenes Lame cinematography Plot just drags on Spends too much time trying to set up the Avengers
At first sigh, it is not exactly the expected part of series. because something missing. but the lead sin - a not realistic accent to the vulnerability of Tony Stark is saved by the genius of Robert Downey Jr., giving one of the most credible and nice character from Marvel universe. another good points - Don Cheadle as Lt. Rhodes, Scarlett Johansson as Romanoff and, sure, Mickey Rourke as a vilain who impresse more for its past story and for a sort of old fashion ambiguity. short, a nice film for not the fans of Marvel industry.
Everything about this movie is extremely well done. The sound design, the acting, the effects, and everything else is great. There are only a few things that were kinda bad in this movie, but they don't really ruin it. Potts (the assistant) is more annoying than she was in the first one. She was already annoying in the first one, but now she's got more screen time and screaming. Some of the action is a bit boring (people are fighting with the same technology again) and some of the dialogue is a bit predictable. This movie is extremely entertaining. Its not as good as the first one, but its definitely worth watching. There is an end-credits scene. Its a teaser for "Thor" which has already released. Thor is a much worse movie and I wouldn't really recommend it. Basically, this is a great movie that's slightly worse than the original. Go watch it.
