Movie Ratings and Reviews


Agneepath..Agneepath..Agneepath.....More than just a remake..

The original was a class apart is known to one and all. Amitabh Bachchan created a persona 'Vijay Dinanath Chauhan' with his powerhouse performance. Hrithik has created a new age, rogue and ruthless 'Vijay Dinanath Chauhan'. He has done all the justice to his character.
Amitabh displayed a person who had wrapped himself in arrogance to fight with the unjust in his own way. Whereas Hrithik displays a subtle and transparent side just bearing one thing in mind, to avenge his past. Full marks there.
Sanjay Dutt as Kancha is deadly and ferocious. His character and Body language speaks a lot more than his actual dialogues. Rishi Kapoor as 'Rauf Lala' is awesome. His screen presence in unfazed in front of both Hrithik and Sanjay. Very well depicted. The Junior Vijay Chauhan is also a very apt choice.Rest of the cast do their part but nothing memorable about them.
There are flaws in the movie and in between the movie is stretched and gets overly emotional. The flow of the movie is very much Bollywood but, it is the presentation which makes it impressive. Karan Malhotra as debutant director does a good job.

In a Nutshell:
a) Highlights:
The music by Ajay-Atul is varied and enjoyable. Songs convey the emotions perfectly. The background score is terrific and for me it is also a character in the film. Formidable work by Ajay-Atul.
Cinematography is good and the overall production design is fabulous. The dark-broody feel is kept alive throughout all the scenes shot in 'Mandwa'(Diu).
b) Flaws:
The screenplay is set loose at many times in the movie.

The scenes involving Hrithik and his mother (Zarina Wahab) do not reflect the same intensity as it was in the original between Amitabh and Rohini Hattangadi.
"Chikni Chameli" is a thorough disappointment. It was probably just marketing gimmick which was thought about later and stuffed in the movie.

P. S.: This review just has character description.

The Mechanic
The Mechanic(2011)

Actors are the winners, script isn't..!!!!

The Mechanic................What I do requires a certain mindset.

Jason Statham (Arthur Bishop) plays the title role, an elite assassin with a skill to eliminate his targets in a clean fashion. He believes that the best jobs are the one's nobody ever knows you were there. Donald Suherland (Harry McKenna) is his boss cum mentor and Ben Foster (Steve) plays the part of his son. Harry and Dean (Goldwyn) are partners and they give their "assignments" to Arthur. Dean approaches Arthur with a contract of killing Harry with citing the reason that Harry is no more loyal to the company.

After Arthur is done with Harry, Steve comes in the picture with urge to learn the skills to become a "Mechanic". They hit it off well with their assignments. But soon Arthur comes to know that he had been deceived by Dean to kill Harry. Both Arthur and Steve go on a Seek and Destroy mission and are eliminate the Dean. During the entire sequence, Steve gets hold of his father's gun and he gets to know that it was none other than Arthur who had killed his father and then the climax.

The direction, script and screenplay are just average, speaking of which this is a remake of a movie with the same name which came back in 1972. Haven't watched it so no comparison.

In a Nutshell:

Betrayal and Vengeance complete the movie.

a)Highlights: Performances by both Jason Statham and Ben Foster are good. Statham blends with his character very well and Foster is just brilliant in his attitude and body-language.

b)Flaws : There are thriller clichés and the action sequences are just average.

My rating 45%

Tron Legacy
Tron Legacy(2010)

The plot of the movie is that of Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) , the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn(Jeff Bridges),who tries to look into the disappearance of his father which leads him to the virtual world his father's been trapped in for almost 2 decades. What follows is a stunning visual delight with some edgy fight and chase sequences, displaying great maneuvers!!!! Sheer Visual Treat..!!

In this movie, the soundtrack (courtesy Daft Punk) comes as the real winner. It makes the complete feel of the Virtual world so real and upbeat that it is hard not to enjoy. The fights and clash along with some very ecstatic tracks feels terrific.

The script is the real culprit which takes the entire feel to an unexpected low. The characters are weak, so is the acting, even Bridges could not give justice to his "Kevin Flynn" character. But CLU was very well played by him(Yeah, Jeff Bridges appears in 2 Guises).

Sam(Garrett) is just another character played in a very cliched (C)d manner. Olivia Wilde is also just OK as the doe eyed "Quorra". Michael Sheen as "Castor" has a sort a cameo. But still his 5 minutes of screen presence impressed me.

Director's job is just OK. Not extraordinary. The original TRON ('82) was a cult movie then. Although the descent of technology makes this one visually spectacular but fails to keep the audience engaged on the story line.

Shutter Island

Shutter Island........"Which would be worse, to live as a monster or to die as a good man? "
This movie has to be appreciated for its unusual way of unfolding. So well is the mix of story-screenplay and direction that halfway into the movie and you feel like on "Shutter Island". Scorsese's brilliance is what makes the movie fantastic and add to it a stellar performance by Leonardo Dicaprio.
Shutter Island is a complicated story (I won't write much about that) based on one person's imagination to let himself off being the person he really is....As in the words of the Dr. Cawley(Ben Kingsley), he constructed the most radical, cutting-edge, role-play ever attempted in Psychiatry, to successfully bring back the patient to his normal terms of life. In the end what happens is the most interesting part and I was floored after seeing the same.
I love these kind of movies where in the viewer needs to put actual effort to understand the story, plot, characters and even be able to relate to them for better understanding. Shutter Island is successful upto certain level in all of these fronts.
The credits say that Shutter Island is actually made from a novel (I've not read it). The screenplay and editing is good, cinematography should be appreciated as well as the production design and the art direction.
In a Nutshell:
a) Highlights: Great effort for the detailing, Very good performances by the cast namely Leonardo, Mark Ruffalo(Chuck), Ben Kingsley(Dr. Cawley) and others, Background score adds to the feel of being in a state of confusion
b) USP : The intrigue story and the director's fine job.

My rating 70%


Zodiac....." What follows is based on actual case files...."
The year 1969. Well, it's a crime movie with David Fincher in the director's chair. Now, just for the record we've seen 'Seven' and 'Fight Club' and it is really his style of direction that is 'intrigue' in nature. Same goes for this movie. Zodiac is a real big puzzle and to understand it, attention has to be given to all the details of characters, incidents, dates, written letters and ciphers to name a few.
The movie is an adaptation of a book by Robert Graysmith (The character is played by Jake Gyllenhaal). The direction is top-notch so is the screenplay by James Vanderbilt and the Editing by Angus Wall.
In terms of acting Gyllenhaal who plays a cartoonist but due to his curios nature (read the character), it takes him to extreme highs towards solving the case, and he does a fine job. He fits the bill perfectly. Robert Downey Jr. has a small part to play but does the job good. The surprise for me came in the form of Mark Ruffalo who plays the role of Inspector Dave Toschi. His angst, nature, curiosity all is reflected continuously. His body language, wee-bit of arrogance all other qualities which according to me he has grasped for the sake of the character has to be applauded. The rest of the cast supports the flow of the movie well.
The length of the movie is questionable. For the viewer it gets draggy at some point (From my own experience).
Special mention for the Production design and of course the cinematography. It really gives the feel of the 70's. I have seen the Dirty Harry series so I can tell that...!!!

In a Nutshell:
a) Highlights: Great crime story, fine direction, acting is enjoyable.
b) Flaws: The length of the movie, Too many things to digest in one go.
c) USP : The mystery quotient remains high till the end.
My rating 75%

Risky Business

Risky Business...."Every now and then say, 'What the f***'. It gives you freedom."

This is one of the very first movie of Tom Cruise. The plot is pretty simple. Like all other teenage guys even Joel(Cruise) had all the normal teenage, girls, money. Next, his parents left for a week, and all his fantasies came true....All started with one call to a call girl (Lana) and he had the time of his life in the entire week......Having a girlfriend, getting robbed multiple times, drowned his father's car in a lake, making a fortune of 8000 $ in one night (He was going to be the Future Enterpriser.), getting into Princeton college......and a lot more....

I don't have much to write from the perspective of movie making.....the good feature being the analysis and handling of teen minds, their uncontrollable angst and fear on things they don't know is well presented....!!!

Tom Cruise with his boyish charms is impressive....Rebecca De Mornay playing Lana acts with few expressions, but say for the role of a call girl cum seductress, it suffices...!!!! Joe Pantoliano as 'Guido the pimp' acts well in his short role...!!

Recommendation : Can lay back and enjoy at least once. If you find no reason to watch it...take a look only because of Tom Cruise....!!!

The Great Debaters

The Great Debaters......"Debate is blood sport. It's combat. But your weapons are words."

Biographies are meant for people to know what happened, how it happened and most importantly, to inspire. The movie truly inspires a lot. The battle of words shown is so intense that at the end of almost each debate, involuntarily, my hands came together to applaud.

This movie is a drama based on the true story of Melvin B. Tolson (Denzel Washington), a professor at Wiley College Texas. In 1935, he inspired students to form the school's first debate team, which went on to challenge Harvard in the national championship.

When the cast has names like Denzel Washington and Forest Whitaker, its hard to think that the content will not be good. Also Denzel Washington is the director and he does a real good job. The characters in this movie are simply the students (Debate team) and the mentors (Washington and Whitaker). What works fine throughout is the bonding of the two sides, the situations in which wrong decisions are made, in which the integrity of the confronting person is put to test, even the master(Tolson) is put through situations of doubt where he responds "My politics are my business and it won't endanger the team". He's labeled a communist, an extremist and what not, but, at the end it was because of him, his belief in truth, in his team that lead to the level of success which according to most of them at that time was unattainable.

Something special in my point of view was the proper and correct mention of Gandhiji and his civil disobedience in the last debate which highlighted many valid points.
In a Nutshell:

a) Highlights: The detailing of the mid 1930's that is the job of art direction is good, the acting is lively and commendable, the ensemble is also fine and of course the direction is good.

b)USP: The battle of words.

TRIVIA: Washington's second movie as a director.

Great Lines: i)Defeat makes a person stronger.
ii)Opponent doesn't exist because he is a mere dissenting voice to the truth I speak.

My rating 85%


Unthinkable......"Right and Wrong no longer exist"

Three unusual plot....and only one thing happens...."UNTHINKABLE"

This is one of those hard-hitting thrillers which shakes you up completely. Not a scene of the movie is predictable until the viewer gets an idea of how each character thinks. Three characters- An Interrogator(Samuel Jackson playing 'H'), an FBI agent(Carrie-Anne Moss playing Agent Brody ) and a suspected terrorist(Michael Sheen playing Yusuf) who is squealed by the interrogator so hard that the entire team leading the operation at one point, gets against him...

The element of this movie upon which the whole movie is made is Unthinkable...Some may say that the premise is missing the substance but the first time viewer will enjoy it the most...

But keep in mind....this movie gets bloody and gore from time to do not watch it if you are not in a mood....The character of H is the one with whom I completely agree throughout the movie.....!!!!!

In a Nutshell:

a) Highlights: Pace is good, no fussy characters, direction is fine, script is ok..!!

b) USP : The acting. All three lead characters are wonderful....Although the intensity of Jackson and Sheen somehow hides the performance of Moss but still she managed well of her own...!!!!

My rating 6 of 10.

The Bone Collector

The Bone Collector....

The movie revolves around a Quadriplegic homicide detective (Washington) and a female cop(Jolie) who together along with their team try to track down a serial killer. With the first blood, the expectations from the movie begins to soar.....but at the end the movie fails to impress....!!!

Denzel Washington plays his part well as the smart, focused man with never to loose attitude lying in a still position throughout the movie.....Jolie's character compliments him well but her acting is not impressive. Amongst the rest of the cast Queen Latifah as Thelma plays her part well.....

The main problem with the movie is its pace and also the flow of the story.....The movie is just as the joining of the pieces of a puzzle made look easy....

I won't say that this movie is not it for a decent performance by Washington, the clues put together to create the mystery are also good...One time watch strictly...!!!

My rating: 50%

Step Up
Step Up(2006)

Channing Tatum's character Tyler Gage is the person i envy most after watching this movie. He's extremely talented dancer with great looks and all his potentials have been well exploited by the director(accept for the acting). Nora Clark played by Jenna Dewan compliments him well throughout the movie.

The story is not that fascinating. Tyler and his friends vandalise the MSA(Maryland School of Arts) and so 200 hours of community service is how he has to pay back. Then he meets Nora who desperately needs a partner for her senior piece, as her previous partner is not well..??? or some stuff like that. They connect well, then some ups and downs and at the end they give a great performance. Wow....!!!

But what really needs to be appreciated is the dance performances throughout the movie. Real treat for every dancer like me. Special mention for the last performance in which great co-ordination along with a good piece of music is presented.

Director Anne Fletcher with her directorial debut is fine at directing but she's great at choreographing. Kudos to her for the same. So people get in a good mood, sit back and enjoy the dance...!!!!


The plot of Killshot is poor....The only thing enjoyable is the work of the actors..
Rourke as the ice-cold contract killer is good....Diane Lane is just OK..The real treat for me was Joseph Gordon-Levitt and that too strictly in terms of acting. Even his character was pretty lame....
There's no substance at all in this movie.....If u r a fan of any of the actors in the movie then that's the only reason for watching it else NOT RECOMMENDED...!!!

500 Days of Summer

500 days of Summer......well its not a love's a story about Love!!!
I want to make a simple review over here...The acting by both the lead actors is awesome...
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Tom Hansen who finds the Love he needs the most in a girl Summer Finn(Zooey Deschanel) who does not believe that true love exist....
The director(Marc Webb) has handled the script brilliantly....The complete opposite feelings of two people together among which one thinks that this is true love whereas the other believes in being happy the way everything's going on without committing for a relationship...An untoward turn in the life of Tom and everything's over...!!! They meet up again after some time and Tom's feeling's resurfaces again to crash and burn....sounds petty...but the turns when watched will make you feel great...!!!

In a Nutshell:
a) Highlights: Good cast ensemble, great performances, refreshing story, editing is fine(not a single shot that looks extra ), Director's job perfect...!!!
b) USP : The music is superb...each track composed (Mychael Danna and Rob Simonsen) or selected from various bands/albums suits the mood of the film to the perfect tune...!!!!
c) Flaws: Actually that depends on the he/she looks at the progress of the story and is he able to digest all the stuff that's going on..!!!!

My rating 85%

Thank You for Smoking

Nick Naylor(Eckhart) is the face and mouth of Academy of Tobacco Studies. The dialogues and the arguments are extremely ludicrous. Kudos to the director Reitman for a good film.

The movie is basically a satire on well many 'x'doings around(U can decide for yourself what is X - good or bad). To name a few :- Smoking/No smoking, hypocrite politicians, fanatic bosses who keep ordering around for their own good, reporters going limitless for a 'STORY'......

The most important part of the film is the father-son relationship which is handled with great care. The father does not force but allows his son to decide what is bad and what is good and if anything is good and then go Argue for not negotiate..!!!

The film has a good cast ensemble with Eckhart, Simmons, Macy, Holmes all playing their part well...!! The movie has a great no not about smoking but 'Everybody has a talent'....!!


Clint Eastwood, the man with an aquiline look, seen in profound characters in "Million Dollar Baby" and "Gran Torino", has come out with such a subtle and fine movie that it may take many by a surprise....

Inspired from the book "Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game that Made a Nation" by John Carlin, the movie is based on the contribution of Mr. Mandela in inspiring his team to win the Rugby World Cup 1995, in order to unite the apartheid-torn land.

Morgan Freeman once again delights us with his magnificent performance. His sheer screen presence makes us feel good, positive and really inspired throughout the movie.

Matt Damon is good as the team captain "Francois Pienaar". Genuine and humble along with alert and decisive is the character portrayal by Damon. There is a scene before the final match wherein on being asked "Thinking about tomorrow ?", he replies "No, tomorrow's taken care of, one way or another. I was thinking about how you spend 30 years in a tiny cell, and come out ready to forgive the people who put you there."

Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon both have received an Oscar Nomination for their roles in the movie, that itself speaks for them.

All other characters have minor but an important role. This movie in my opinion is truly inspiring. Clint Eastwood continues to inspire after gems such as Million Dollar Baby, Changeling and others...

Do watch it....!!!!

Sherlock Holmes

-- Sherlock Holmes, the fictional character by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has been brought on-screen by Guy Ritchie and Robert Downey Jr.

--Robert after playing the super hero Iron Man does complete justice to his role of Detective Holmes. He lives the character of the detective throughout the movie without a flaw. No other than Downey Jr. would have lived this character as brilliantly as he does. Witty,smart,tough and logical are the best words to describe him in the character of Holmes.

-- Jude Law as Dr.Watson and Rachel McAdams as Irene are equally good. Mark Strong as Lord Blackwood is OK.

-- A lot of effort has been put up in Detaling of the late 19th and early 20th century.Remember "The Prestige" which was set in the late 19th century.Thorough detailing is a visual treat to movie-lovers. -- Guy Ritchie along with Johnson and Peckham(screenplay) does a fabulous job of etching each and every character. The direction is good.

-- Excellent detailing, good cinematography,great music by Hans Zimmer, witty one liners b/w Holmes and Watson and above all the direction of Guy Ritchie which is far better than his previous movies like Snatch and RocknRolla.

The USP: Downey Jr's performance Downey Jr. fans - Don't Dare Miss this one..!!!!!


Kidnapping of his daughter brings the skillful and deadly person inside Bryan(Neeson) to life.......He promises the kidnapper that"I will find you and I will kill you."

Pierre Morel with his second flick as a director is to be applauded for making such a fast paced and thrilling movie....After the formal intro of each character and the situations say in the first 20 mins, Kim(Grace) is kidnapped. Bryan's mission, to rescue her back....Simple isn't it..But to really enjoy you need to watch the movie....

This movie completely and solely is on Liam Neeson's shoulder....What a performance..?? Although most of his fans might be knowing that he mostly acts in the movies playing the mentor or father figures of the central character.....This movie belongs to him only....

Other characters play their part well, emotions have their role in the movie and the direction is ultimate.....

Bourne fans......u'l love this movie...njy with most Hard-hitting dialogues......!!!

Edge of Darkness

The movie starts on with the return of Craven's(Mel Gibson)daughter to his place for few days holiday and then "BOOM" she gets shot at front door. He sees his daughter die, everyone else is convinced that it was an attack on Thomas Craven, but he is pretty sure that it wasn't. He thinks it in a straight way that he doesn't have any enemies around, no point attacking him. Rest as you can guess is how he unravels the mystery of his daughters death.

"Some secrets takes us to the edge" That's true for the movie. Craven hunts down deep to find the truth. The scam by a private firm 'Northmoor', which has caught the attention of some of its employees and they want it let out. So the firm eliminates them one by one.

The linking between the characters is good, but the point at which the movie suffers is its pace. Some scenes create extreme adrenaline and the rest that follow are just OK. Scenes with gunfire are well shot. You can feel the punch in those scenes, they take you by surprise!!! Director Campbell does his job in an average sense. No extra points in that department. The camera work is good for few scenes, in the rest it is OK.

Mel Gibson gives a damn good performance as the hurt but stable guy after loosing his daughter and not willing to compromise or get governed by the bad people. In one dialogue he says,"You'd better decide whether you're hanging on the cross or banging in the nails." 3stars of 5.

The Blind Side

There is not much to write about from the perspective of movie making. The movie is very simple. A homeless boy finds shelter with the Tuohy's. The lady Leigh Anne Tuohy played by Sandra Bullock takes complete care of him, notices the morality inhibited in the boy and even encourages the other members of her family to inculcate the small but important good habits. He becomes a part of their family. She even helps him out for a better life at school through education and Sports.

The movie is a biography and in my opinion this movie completely belongs to Sandra Bullock. She plays the character of 'Leigh Anne Tuohy' with so much ease that you really feel nice and the hope that good people exist around you is restored.

Do watch it for a brilliant performance by Sandra Bullock.....!!!

Batman Begins

Batman Begins is not only a movie for cine lovers, but a package full of inspiration and soulful treat. Christopher Nolan, Christian Bale and Michael Caine, these three form the greatest combination.

The plot of how Bruce Wayne becomes what he was destined to be is handled with utmost care and fine details with all real scenes, some excellent cinematography, great background score by Hans Zimmer and above all great performances by each and every actor in the movie.

Christian Bale as Batman has shown that no other actor can have the panache of BRUCE WAYNE and the ice-cold ruthless aggression of BATMAN. He's the best Batman ever. As an actor he has given us many great performances before, with American Psyhco and Equilibrium bringing out the best in him. Michael Caine as Alfred is at his best. Liam Neeson as Henri Ducard is excellent as Bruce Wayne's mentor and Batman's nightmare.Katie Holmes and Gary Oldman have done justice with their roles. Morgan Freeman playing Lucius Fox delights us with his sheer screen presence.

Hoping a long run from this franchise.....!!!!! Cheers, we have finally seen the Batman truly BEGIN.....!!!


Although movie making is not a one man job but people tend to praise only person for the success of a master piece. Mel Gibson deserves all the accolades. He is the 'Heart and soul' of the entire movie. Few of you may know that he almost turned down the role of "William Wallace" in this movie because he thought he was too old for the role. He asked the producers if he could direct it instead. A compromise was made, he could direct the movie if he agreed to portray Wallace. Had it not been for the producers i believe we would've missed one of best performance by him.

The plot of the movie is that of war against England by the Scots who want to attain freedom but they do not realize what to do and how to do until William Wallace steps in. His initial motive is to avenge the death of his wife Murron by a Noble. But then this retaliation gains full-fledged momentum into a war for freedom. Brilliant flow of the story.

"The courage to face fear" is the tagline and is what a braveheart needs to posses and exactly that is shown in the movie about Wallace. Even going through the extremely painful torcher and execution, instead of begging mercy he cries out "FREEDOM". True courage.

Going into the details of the movie making- full marks to the entire crew. The cinematography needs a special mention. All the scenes are so well shot that after the movie ends you can't help but reminisce the scenic beauty captured in such a fantastic way.

Sound editing and the music are also worth praising with the sound of war constructed superbly. All the fights,roars,sword clashing, hoo-hoo of the soldiers and every detail brought to life in the best possible manner.

The movie has received 5 Oscars including BEST film, Director, Sound,make-up and cinematography. If war films do not interest you then you have only one reason to watch it- Mel Gibson..!!!

3:10 to Yuma
3:10 to Yuma(2007)

Any movie which has great effort put upon making the characters damn great always excite me. 3:10 to Yuma has each and every character so well etched that you'll enjoy and stay connected till the very end. Russell Crowe as 'Ben Wade' gives a terrific performance. His wit rides over the senses of the person confronting him. As for Christian Bale(Dan Evans), playing the limped, honest and 'hard to defy person' was not a tough job. He does all of it brilliantly. There's not a single scene in the movie when anyone of the two proves to be better than the other in terms of acting.

The story revolves around Ben Wade who needs to be sent to yuma prison. The train is at 3:10 and the rancher Dan Evans agrees to escort him to the train. In the journey the battle of thoughts and ideologies is persistent and also there are external elements which need to be fought off. This movie sets a perfect example of how thoughts, words and deeds can provoke the good or even the bad amongst any human being. As rightly said "Every way of a man is right in his own eyes but the lord ponders the heart."

Cinematography is excellent. The sound and Background score is also great with superb pieces composed by 'Marco Beltrami'. The director James Mangold does a good job with the flow of the story and characters at a steady pace with a bit of sequence at the end wherein viewers may share mixed reactions.

Coming back to characters, Crowe and Bale have given excellent performances in their respective roles. The fierce intensity of Wade and the lowly intense but highly focused nature of Evans are thoroughly reflected...!!!! Catch this 'train to Yuma' to enjoy watching these two great actors together....!!!!

Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2(2010)

Iron Man 2 : Very big Expectations and most of them fulfilled.....what a grand movie...loaded with the best actors, superb visuals, thrilling sound effects, unbeatable charisma of Mr. Tony Stark(Downey Jr.).........etc.....!!!!

This movie is a followup of the first part from the point at which it ended.The movie starts with a bang...'Stark Expo' the one initiated by Howard Stark. Enter Mickey Rourke or Whiplash who is the son of the scientist who helped Howard Stark(Tony's Father) to develop the arc reactor technology. He is driven by vengeance(Watch the movie for more). Cut two..Enter Justin Hammer(Sam Rockwell) the man who wants to take over the popularity of Tony Stark....Cut three The US government demands the Iron Man suit and Tony says..'The suit and i are one'.... then Whiplash attacks Tony on a F1 circuit...Rockwell is impressed and he hires whiplash to embed the technology in the suits built by th same time at a party Tony goes super weird and displays the prowess of his suit in a party wherein Rhody comes and takes a spare suit to his command.......whoooaaa..i'l stop....what i wanted to suggest over here is that the plot is too big and the characters are too many and so none of them was properly used......too much cling-clang...and yes there's the gorgeous Scarlett Johansson whose attitude spits fire throughout...!!! Paltrow is just okay as the assistant cum the new 'CEO' of Stark enterprises...!!

Jon Favreau has done a good job. He knew exactly what to do to make this movie bigger than the First part and he's pretty much successful but the screenplay makes the movie suffer...!!!! Also the characters were not given space to act or to justify their character completely...specially Whiplash and Nick Fury(Samuel)...And for me the biggest disappointment was replacing Terence Howard as Rhody by Don...Although Don is good but Terence was far more better in that role in the first part.

Now the USP's...Downey Jr. is the life of this movie.....terrific performance. You can enjoy each moment when he is on screen. The action and the effects are realistic and mind-blowing....!!! In my take this movie may get Oscar nominations for Visual effects, sound mixing and sound editing..!!!!

As was at the end of the first part a scene of the arrival of Nick Fury, even this movie has a special after credits-roll scene....Do watch it....and applaud for Robert Downey Jr.!!!!

Iron Man Rocks..!!
