Iron Man 2 Reviews

Page 2 of 14

In the quest to do things bigger, louder, and faster than its predecessor, excess can get a little... excessive. But this is still miles ahead of the average summer festival of fireballs, owing in large part to the great ensemble and snappy dialogue.

The repercussions of superhero life and the weight of family legacy take centre stage in this busy yet charismatic superhero melodrama.

The best scenes are still the ones with Downey and Gwyneth Paltrow (as Stark's charm-resistant assistant, Pepper Potts), or just Downey alone. The rest feels like padding, which is something a sleek-suited superhero shouldn't need.

It's enjoyable to see a quality superhero dynamically and enthusiastically rendered.

Still worth watching. Just set your bar a little lower.

There's an outdated feel to it all, from its cold-war view of America to the AC/DC soundtrack.

Suffers from a bit of sequel-itis..but don't look for what it isn't; enjoy the solid filmmaking and actors who take their comic book-created roles very seriously.

All of the charm and romance of the original has been ironed out by excess.

Tony Stark is Dick Cheney's foreign policy driven by Grover Norquist's fiscal policy, sold to the public by Ari Gold. Very confusing.

You won't find a more overqualified cast this year. Then out come the CGI effects and everything becomes a yawn.

Iron Man 2 suffers from typical sequelitis. It bites off more than it can chew and feels drowsy as a result.

Sometimes simple is better. The original thrived on few integral characters and a world-wise approach to storytelling. This feature seems to think action is more important than story and an overabundance of characters is a necessity.

Don Cheadle, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell and again Gwyneth Paltrow are gladly on hand, but only Robert Downey Jr. can so comfortably guide us through the conspicuous outlay.

Take all twelve plots, set your iPod on shuffle, and watch as the franchise deteriorates into a shallow pool of half-baked ideas and detached snark.

Downey's Stark was a human hero. But the dude in "Iron Man 2" has gone superhero and the synthetic construction doesn't offer the same fullness of character it once did. Still...

Recognizes and repeats a lot of the things that made the original great, but also falls victim to many of the pitfalls of past superhero sequels.
