Overview

Iron Man 2

As Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) owns up to being Iron Man before the world press, Anton Vanko lies dying in Russia. Years ago, Anton worked with Tony's father to create a new source of energy. But greed got the best of Anton, and now as he slips away, his son, Ivan (Mickey Rourke), vows to make Tony pay for the sins of his father. Meanwhile, Tony fends off efforts from smarmy Senator Stern (Garry Shandling) and military weapons expert Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) to get him to divulge the secrets of his powerful Iron Man suit. The powers that be are concerned that Tony's technology may fall into the wrong hands -- fears that are soon confirmed when the cocky billionaire entrepreneur is confronted in front of the entire world by Ivan, who has built his own weapon using stolen Stark blueprints. Later, as Lt. Rhodes (Don Cheadle) wrestles with the decision to personally deliver Tony's suit to the military, Ivan finds an unlikely ally in the quest to destroy Iron Man; Stark Industries legal consultant Natalie Rushman (Scarlett Johansson) reveals her connection to Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson); and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) takes on some new responsibilities.

Taking place six months after the first Iron Man, Iron Man 2 finds a world where Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has successfully "privatized world peace," but fearing other countries getting their hands on Stark's Iron Man technology the Senate seeks to have Tony hand over the technology to the government. Also seeking to steal Stark's technology is Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) who wants to regain a weapons contract with the military. Complicating things further, a mysterious Russian physicist named Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke) turns up to destroy Tony Stark. Iron Man was a huge surprise when it came out in the early summer of 2008. A 2nd tier Marvel comic book, Iron Man became one of the top grossing movies of 2008, and even held it's own very well against the juggernaut that was The Dark Knight despite it's much smaller fanbase. It also resurrected Robert Downey Jr.'s career, showing that he was capable of leading a franchise despite his past mistakes. Since then Downey has found himself nominated for two Golden Globes winning one of them, and added yet another big action franchise to the current notch in his belt. Of course, all eyes are on Iron Man 2 to see if the movie will top it's predecessor in the expectations department, so how does it hold up. Iron Man 2 equals it's predecessor. The second installment of Iron Man is funnier than the original, and it ups the ante on the action from the first movie as well. What really makes the movie though, is not the action, but the characterizations. Fleshing out Stark's narcissism as well as his inabilities to deal with his emotions opens new doors into the character. Favreau and new writer to the series Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunderd) do a great job of handling a large cast that would normally sink most other comic book franchises. The casting in this movie is superb even if it seems jarring to see so many actors and actresses playing characters that aren't typical for them. Scarlett Johansson has rarely played an outright action fueled character, but she equips herself admirably to play the part of a believable martial arts trained heroine. Don Cheadle does a great job taking over the role of Rhodey from Terrence Howard, and even tops his predecessor. Mickey Rourke steals nearly every scene he's in, though, as Russian physicist Ivan Vanko. I was never sure if I would be able to buy him as a Russian, but the work he put into researching for the character definitely paid off. On the downside though, sometimes it feels as though there's too much of a rush to get from one point to the next. Scenes feel as though they move to the next before they're truly done playing out. To add to that, the second half of the film is a bit derivative of other action films. While the film may do a great job of going in a different direction than other comic book films, but in the last act of the movie it falls into the same trap of a cliched ending. All in all, I highly recommend this movie, especially if you like movies based on comic books and if you like the first Iron Man. Franchises like Iron Man, the current Batman series, and Kick-Ass set a new benchmark for comic book movies and action movies in general. With great action, acting, characterization, and originality these movies have moved beyond their genres to capture something that extends beyond it's core audience. 4.5/5

So far, I feel the first Ironman movie is probably the best. That being said though, this one was in no way bad. I found it quite enjoyable as well. In fact, I just bought the 3 disc blue ray version of this shortly before I came on here to write this review. It's a rather good edition actually...completed with a disc loaded with features and a DVD copy as well. I believe this particular DVD copy has that disc of features as well. There were a few minor elements that I wasn't a huge fan of in this movie, but not really anything big enough for me to say anything bad about the movie as a whole. The cast did a great job. I rather liked Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow. I think she did an excellent job and was quite sexy...and she sure kicked some @$$ in one part of the movie. As much as I like Sam Rockwell, too, his character kind of annoyed me, but he was suppose too...so Sam, I commend you on a great job at your part as well. LoL. All the actors did a superb job in this movie, and overall it's pretty good. Too bad Terrence Howard had to be greedy and forfeit his role, but Don Cheadle stepped up and di just fine at it. Why pass up the chance to be War Machine over a measely few million dollars more? As if he wasn't already making enoug already. Kinda retarded if you ask me. War Machine is a bad@$$! Bad career move Terrence. Oh well though. Anyway, sorry...that's enough outta me about that. All in all, this movie was pretty awesome. If you have not seen it yet, be sure and check it out!
