I'm not gonna lie. This sequel felt rushed and I wasn't satisfied at all. So, why the fresh rating? Well, if you'll notice, it's only at 60%. It barely made the grade. What I liked about Iron Man 2 is this: The Cast! Jon Favreau sure knows how to create a winning ensemble. Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Sam Rockwell as Hammer, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Sam Jackson as Nick Fury (I did want to see him do more, though), and Scarlet Johansson as Black Widow. They were grade-A additions to the franchise. So, what went wrong? Almost everything else! There's too little action, the screenplay seems half-baked, and Rourke should have a meatier role. It feels like they rushed this sequel into development without giving the script a decent polish. Think about The Dark Knight or X2 and you've got a satisfying sequel. Iron Man 2 sadly falls very short of that.
