Good movie except for Sam Rockwell's character. He nearly ruined the movie for me. Also, one of the only movies, so far, that I like Scarlett Johansson in. She needs to play a badass instead of some whimpering person like she did in the Girl with the Pearl Earring.

Duff sequel and a rare misstep for the current Marvel oeuvre. Mickley Rourke manages to follow in John Travolta's footsteps and destroy his career a second time.

It might be a rather flawed sequel, but "Iron Man 2" is serviceable.

Great movie. More wonderful humour and even better action scenes especially at the climax of the film. The addition of the Black Widow was a nice touch and she had a great action scene herself. Cool to see War Machine armor. The only major hangup of this film is the recasting of James Rhoades from Terrance Howard to Don Cheadle. Major downgrade.

Forgettable and mostly pointless, Iron Man 2 is a dud that really stings after how amazing the first movie was. The villain is pretty awful, in both motivations, acting, and how nonintimidating he is. The only things the movie does that have much of any impact going forward are to reestablish Rhodey with the far superior Don Cheadle to Terrence Howard's phoned-in performance in the first film and turn him into War Machine, and setup The Avengers. The casting/acting are still great given the material, and the special effects are standard fare for Marvel, meaning great, but other than that, this film easily could have been an edited down short that was played before another Marvel film.

How do I describe this movie... It does not live up to the original, and the plot is not fresh, but the overall idea catches the attention of many Marvel fans.

A little disappointing coming after the first one. The villain seems to take a backseat and we're treated to an extended trailer for up and coming attractions in the marvel universe

Still better than BVS and one of the best castings for Marvel in Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow.

Iron Man is unstoppable. With RDJ playing the role he was born to play you can't watch an Iron Man movie and not enjoy it.

A movie that seems to try to set up future films too much. As usual RDJ provides an excellent performance.

I don't like this one very much. It's a messy story that does itself a disservice by trying to do too much. There isn't enough character work here to make up for it. Hero isn't great, villain is lame, not very good, but entertaining enough on a first viewing

Iron Man 2 has its moments, even though the third act doesn't hold up.

Though not as good as the first, this sequel comes close with a great supporting cast, awesome action, and of course: Robert Downey Jr.

Puntaje Original: 7.0

Más peronajes icónicos y escenas de acción memorables que harán desbordar de emoción a la audiencia.

Honestly, it's not nearly as good as it's predecessor, but Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. still deliver on an action packed and fun adventure in this sequel to the first blockbuster hit of Iron Man, and Don Cheadle provides an arguably better performance as James Rhodes. The flaws come in the the mediocre Whiplash, and the wasted story in Tony's alcoholism, which is played more for laughs then a real character flaw. Really you could go either way on this one.

Though this film isn't quite as revolutionary as Iron Man, this sequel still showcases solid performances by Robert Downey Jr. and company and delivers a very action-packed plot. My biggest gripe with the film was that it acted as a prequel to The Avengers rather than try to solely focus on Iron Man's development. I actually liked seeing Don Cheadle in this film as War Machine (who replaced Terrence Howard). The movie does suffer with a weak, underdeveloped villain that doesn't pose nearly as much of a threat as Stane from the first Iron Man.

Iron Man 2 attempts to top its precedent, but fails to do so. Don't expect much action from this film, as it provides shorter action scenes. Not the greatest introduction of War Machine and the Black Widow. There are a few holes in the plot that provide many questions. Regardless, the comedy, mediocre plot, and RDJ's performance of this film did keep me entertained.

Not a bad movie, but a pretty big disappointment.
November 24, 2017
A good effort. But somewhat of a misstep that they resolved in Iron Man 3.
½ November 23, 2017
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. While watching there is stuff to enjoy but nothing memorable.

November 21, 2017
While I don't think this is as bad as some people have said, it's a huge step down from the amazing first film.
