Rotten's Review of Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2(2010)
When it picked up right at the end of the last one I was hooked straight through. Robert Downey Jr. plays another masterfully eccentric and narcissistic rich boy superhero to a T. Nice to see him back working strong along with ole Mickey Rourke. Both are fantastic acting comebacks.
This movie is what it is. If you liked the first one then this is just a mere extension of that. Add in the Avernger crossover and the plot begins to wash into a piss warm bath. Not as exciting as the first but hardly much different.
Special FX were great straight from the beginning all the way to the end. Twist turns and some added Avenger plotline made the story pretty engaging on first view. This is a great big screen blockbuster movie and deserves all the praise anyone wants to give it. In the end it falls short of what it could have been due to a darty plotline.
