Movie Review: Iron Man 2
Movie Review: Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2

Director: Jon Favreau
Writer: Justin Theroux
Release Date: May 7, 2010 (USA)

Iron Man 2 should have been great. Robert Downey Jr. has proven he's the perfect actor to play charismatic billionaire Tony Stark, and with the predictable origin story out of the way, the sequel was free to move forward in any number of directions. So what went wrong? Iron Man 2 does present a number of new changes and challenges for Stark, but they are jumbled together to create the kind of story you can find in an average (not extraordinary) comic book.

I pretty much agree. I love RDJ, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Don Cheadle in this movie (along with Scarlet Johansson's body), but they tried to fit too much into the movie. Stark's dark period/drinking problem, for one, was never fleshed out as much as it could/should have been. Also, not a huge fan of Mickey Rourke in this movie. It was still an enjoyable movie though, with some great humor and dialogue.

Stark's descent into alcoholism could be a heavy-hitting theme for an Iron Man movie. It's a character trait that really helps to separate him from other comic book heroes. Maybe the third movie will bring that part of Stark's life to light.

I hope so. I thought that it was going to be explored more in Iron Man 2, but obviously they decided not too do so. I think a darker feel would be good for the next Iron Man.
