Iron Man 2 (2010)

iron_man_int_1200

With the world now aware of his identity as Iron Man, Tony Stark must contend with both his declining health and a vengeful mad man with ties to his father’s legacy. (IMDb)

The good outweighs the bad in this sequel: The “new” Rhodey is meh, but the rough and reserved Vanko and the annoying Hammer are each uniquely entertaining villains. A messy script fumbles its multiple plot threads (the requisite Avengers teasers don’t help), but Stark’s increasing ego and decreasing health, along with his government clashes and sinister copycats remain intriguing, if neglected. Finally, the robot-loaded climax feels weak, but the racetrack action mid-way through is great.

7.0/10

  1. Far from a perfect movie, but I’ve always felt that it gets too much hate. For me, there’s still enough going on to keep me at least somewhat interested throughout, and you’re right – that racetrack sequence was fantastic. Great review!
