It's much more fun to create a franchise than to doggedly sustain it.

The most cynical and calculating part of it all is that the movie never really finds a justification for its existence; except, that is, as a bald-faced setup for The Avengers.

... The visual effects, though solid, may brighten the screen but are a poor substitute for characterisation and style - those two absent friends who we miss the most during the show.

Fans will be satisfied, even if it doesn't match the nuanced and well-rounded brilliance of the first film. But many will be disappointed with this seemingly rushed follow-up.

Marvel are so excited about The Avengers that they've decided to make a 2-hour advert for it, pass it off as a film and charge admission.

I cannot imagine that anyone intimately involved with the making of Iron Man 2 would ever, on their own dime and their own time, ever go to see a movie like Iron Man 2.

Future Movies UK

A series of carefully-planned, effects-heavy sequences strung together with slapdash storytelling, underdeveloped character ideas and the occasional funny line of dialogue.

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

This sequel, alas, settles for old elements in a new alloy -- less iron, lots more lead and tin.

All this extra effort drains the inherent sense of what was fun about the original, darkening it with issues and complexities that unnecessarily muddy the crisp, clearly commercial premise.

Thanks to Downey Jr, this is a winning formula. Director Jon Favreau's mistake was to add to it.

Entertaining ... but long stretches of the movie are more fizzle than sizzle.

While the title is "Iron Man 2," what we're being given is "Iron Man Squared." There's too much going on, and all the characters and plots and revelations and foreshadowings do not fill the film but bloat it.

Aesthetically, 'Iron Man 2' is a polished flick. Plot wise, it's almost as bad as 'Catwoman.'

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.

This supposedly iron clad sequel is only fit to rust in the superhero scrap yard.

The inevitable Iron Man 3 needs a better screenplay than this.

Iron Man 2 could be Chaplin Meets The Wrestler Meets Shakespeare in Love Meets Stan Lee. Instead it's more The Stooges Meet Sara Lee.

The film slumps into the doldrums early on, and truth is, it never recovers. For a film so heavy on characters, it's shamefully light on plot.
