Iron Man 2 has got to be the worst movie I've seen in the MCU. I know Tony Stark acted like a jerk in the first movie, but there at least he had some wit to him, but in Iron Man 2, he acted like a bigger one. Again, it's not one of the worst films of all time, but it's just a bore.

Pretty good. Mickey Rourke was underused.

It's certainly not bad, but it could be better. You can tell Jon Favreau was rushed to make this sequel happen.

Is a very entertaining film, but inferior to the first film.

Iron Man 2 is the sequel to Iron Man and it's not quite as good, but it's pretty close. The move sets up the avengers and the end of the credits you see Thor'a hammer. And the bad guy is mad at Tony because his father did something to his family so he teams up with the hammer company to destroy Tony. The villain was ok, but not as good as the villain was in Iron Man. And the final battle was also good because Tony teams up. If you like Iron Man, then you should see this movie.

After the success of the first film, this one was disappointing. Cheadle is a tremendous upgrade from Howard and the addition of Jonansson helped things. Rourke is criminally underutilized here after his resurrection in the Wrestler and the plot just isn't that great. The only scenes that stand out are the ones involving Downey.

Using its predecessor's winning formula, Iron Man returns in Iron Man 2, with an intimidating villain, character development, and a funny conclusion.

This sequel is not perfect, what with its generic villain and plot, along with unnecessary drama, but it does expand the roster of characters and packs a real punch when it comes down to action.

Once again Robert Downey Jr. is great in the role, but this movie isn't great because it feels like a set up for the avengers and it has a forgettable villain and is a forgettable movie overall.

Iron Man 2 mixes fun with the action, but seems to be a little overkill with all of the characters mixed in storylines and motives.
June 17, 2017
Critics and The Audience agree, Iron Man 2 is a great example of a sequel that is not as good as the original. C+

Worst Iron Man Movie
June 11, 2017
I loved Iron man1 so I thought this movie would be great. I watched it and enjoyed a few sequences. I mostly thought it was about a guy who drinks alcohol judging it by the second problem in the movie. In general it was a fine movie.

Not bad, but there are some chinks in the armor, as it were, and it's certainly not as strong as its predecessor, "Iron Man." How much you like this installment greatly depends on how much you enjoy Robert Downey Jr.'s flippant and wisecracking Tony Stark. Mickey Rourke brings an expected dark edge to the villain Whiplash. Scarlett Johansson makes her dynamic debut as Black Widow and there are Easter eggs galore for Marvel Comics fans that tease what's coming in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including a 'thunderous' post-credits sequence. Excelsior!

the only reason, and I do mean ONLY, reason why I ever liked this movie is because (BLACK WIDOW). everything else is terrible, one of the worst villains, it was rushed, and it was such a bummer from the first film.

This product is only watchable because some of the strengths from the first movie is carried over to this one. The chemistry is still solid, even with the introduction of a recasted "War Machine". The humour still works, and the acting is top-notch.

There are problems. Lots of them. First of all this movie doesn't have a plot/it can't decide what it wants to be. To start out with it's a remake of the first movie, then it's a setup for The Avengers, then the villain(s) doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Like the first movie it has problems in the third act, and that's surprising considering it almost doesn't have one.

For some reason director Jon Favreau scraps the great Iron Man theme from the first movie, and the rest of the score is bland.

The movie is better than The Incredible Hulk, but not by much.

When you don't have any ideas for your sequel, just throw in a bunch of Iron Man suits.
