More clever then the first one with great character performances by Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell and a great fight that features Jon Favreau in a know-down fist fight while Black Widow does absurb comic book moves. It is the contrast that exposes how unrealistic movie fights are, but I think it enhances rather then detracts from the movie.

Robert Downey Jr. reprises his star-making role from the first film, as a charmingly egotistical, but ultimately courageous superhero. The film has a terrific cast, some clever banter, and a handful of genuinely thrilling action sequences, but the story isn't as focused or compelling as that of the first film. It feels as if the filmmakers are trying too hard to win over the comparatively few fans of the comic books, but in doing so alienate, to an extent, the mainstream audience. That said, IRON MAN 2 works as an exciting summer blockbuster with wit and spectacle, but doesn't quite measure up to the original. Action violence abounds, and a few innuendos and scantily-clad females pop up as well.

The Tony Stark of Iron Man 2 is more chilling in the age of Trump. He's a blunt, sassy billionaire whose assistant busies herself shielding him from potential sexual harassment lawsuits. He dives into cringeworthy stunts. Enjoying Downey's charisma made me feel bad about myself. I was pretty infatuated with Rourke's physicist-supervillain though.

Definitely the worst MCU movie but is saved by RDJs Incredible Performance.

Although has some enjoyable times and better action than the first, this movie is my least favorite MCU movie with more problems than Spider-Man 3.What did I like? Like I said,the action is an improvement and while not necessary, I liked the introducing to Scarlett Johansson's Black widow. What Did I Hate? Whiplash was also underdeveloped, not much of Iron Man, too much plot holes not being answered, dumb dialogue, what happened? Overall,you might enjoy or hate Iron Man 2. I don't know what side I'm on(possibly both).

Not a great marvel film, but still interesting!

A muddled mess, which gets lost in its attempts to setup The Avengers, Iron Man 2 is an unfortunately dull and lifeless movie, which to this day may be the worst entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Lacking with a meh villain but Downey is not getting any worse, keeps rocking the character with witty lines and great moments.

First was definitely better, but this one was pretty good too! Much more far-fetched...

Although enjoyable, this sequel adopts a more serious tone and grants the main character a tragic nuance, which unfortunately turns the movie into a less gratifying experience, since what made the first so great was its sarcastic human hero who never seemed to care about others.

An ok sequel, but the action scenes make up for the lack luster and meh plot.

I have a love-hate relationship with this movie. The movie's missing action and has too much humor, but my god the acton is fantastic.
½ November 13, 2016
Reasonably entertaining adventure, but there is a discernable dead spot in the middle of the movie followed by a surfeit of explosions and effects. Also, there are too many plot elements in play which makes this sequel more ponderous and confused compared to its predecessor.

iron man 2 is definitely not as good as the first and people say it doesn't have as much action sequences and is boring but that's not a bad thing. yes the villain is awful and the introduction to black widow is boring but the fact that tony stark is suffering from a disease that will eventually kill him is great because it increased his character development.

Owens grade: B-
