Becky and I took the kids to see the new Iron Man 2. The Fandango website at Iron Man 2 describes the movie as follows:
“The world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored Super Hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces…”
Iron Man 2 is chapter two in the Iron Man saga and it’s a massive blockbuster at the box office already. There is plenty of great special effects, but not a ton of action in this film, which is probably the biggest let down of the film. Especially, with the new Avengers characters like Black Widow and Nick Fury. Although, there is a pretty awesome scene with Black Widow wiping out a bunch of bad guys and though I wouldn’t have cast Scarlett Johansson for the part, I think she does a great job with the character.
The story is almost the same as the first movie in that the bad guy is wanting to create a better Iron Man suit, which was surprising that they couldn’t come up with something a little more original. They have Whiplash in this one played by Mickey Rourke and he was great in this one too. The entire cast was really good and even though the action wasn’t all that great, the story wasn’t very original, the movie was still good.
Unlike the Wolverine series where the films keep getting better, the Iron Man movie is entertaining, but I didn’t think it was better than the first one. Becky liked it better, so it’s definitely personal preference. Still we all liked it and it’s definitely worth the price of admission, especially for comic book fans.
