AAAAAAAAAAHHHH, lucky us Brits were today to see probably the most anticipated sequel in many years. Iron Man 2 has been on our radar for a long time and with an impressive first movie the expectations were very high!

First of all let me say this movie is epic, in scale and performance so lets start with the latter as I'm sure you will agree the plot is something to be enjoyed first hand...



RDJ is as charasmatic as ever as Tony Stark, its easy to see how much RDJ lives the Stark role. Every facial expression every whisper every line is commanding the audiance to love this character. Plus, with added drama and personal turmoil he delivers beyond his work in Iron Man.



Paltrow again delivers everything and a little bit more from her performance in the first. The chemistry between her and RDJ lifts the normal love interest storyline into compelling viewing.

Mickey does add some spark as Whiplash and emotional depth in the first half but fizzles out in the 2nd half of the movie. As great as he is, I just didnt feel he was an effective villain. What I mean, is that a good villain is threatening. I saw in another article that he said he didnt know what was going on in the movie and I can beleive it :P



Rockwell is a master in the same mold as RDJ. I must admit I thought Hammer was going to be a similar character but I was happy to see his character had less confidence and was a more effective villain.

Cheadle lacked impact for me, he came across a little lost in my opinion and the only time I felt any impact or charisma from him was his very last line.
Saying that, I found Cheadle to be the real villain of the movie.

Scarjo was very cool in her action scenes but in every other scene she came across robotic for me. I know I'm not a big fan of her but I dont think it was her fault more the writing.

SLJ was awesome as Fury....yes, he wasnt Dirty Harry but he was more engaging! :)

LEEE will be happy since Stan Lee's cameo is too quick to notice, lol! :P

The movie is great but I think the anticipation for this movie made me feel the first half was strung out. I was desperate to see some Iron Man action but I felt like I waited an eternity. (exaggeration I know!)

Once the Action hits OH MY was it fantastic, with great CGI and a bigger budget the action literaly blew me away with its awesomnesssseses!!! :)

War Machine did what it said on the tin but I was impressed more with IM's hand to hand fighting than with WM firepower.


Overall, I give Iron Man 2....

4 Ironettes out of 5



To be honest I gave Iron Man 4/5 when I first saw it but after the second time it became 5/5 and I'm sure this will be the same!

Iron Man 2 is epic, epic, epic, and I have just tried to be honest with my thoughts and I'm sure im the only one who felt them.

Is it the best CBM?? I'm not sure yet but i do know its the most fun.

Teabag out :D

Sounds like a very thorough review, cant wait to see it on May 7th! Scarlett Johansson looks pretty bad-A** in the trailer and the tv-spots so i wanna see what she brings. Plus War machine and Tony Starks different suite is a must see for me!
PrincessLeather - 4/29/2010, 2:24 PM

PrincessLeather - 4/29/2010, 3:07 PM
@ngu13- i mite post pics, but yea, im gonna try to go as early as i can so i can avoid the talkers, the crying children that have to pee 5 times during the movie & the people that repeat lines and state the obvious. I live in south florida so that pretty much describes old ppl...
LEEE777 - 4/29/2010, 3:22 PM

JoshWilding - 4/29/2010, 3:25 PM
Great review tea! :) Apart from the odd one or two points we talked about on my review, I agree with everything you say here! And yeah, Stan Lee's cameo was very much a case of blink and you'll miss it! What did you think of the after credits scene?
Minotauro - 4/29/2010, 3:35 PM

PrincessLeather - 4/29/2010, 3:53 PM
yesterday yahoo reported Iron Man 2 gettin Shi**y reviews so i got a little worried but i knew it was from the simple people who dont kno squat about CBM's. They would rather see a drama infused movie with long stares and confusing self indulgent dialog.
Joe6Pack74 - 4/29/2010, 3:54 PM
Neat can't wait to see it.
ngu13 - 4/29/2010, 3:57 PM

CorndogBurglar - 4/29/2010, 4:12 PM
@ tea

great review, bud! :)

i'm eternally jealous of you for having seen it already. well, maybe not ETERNALLY jealous, just until next week.

i gotta ask what you thought of Cap's shield?? whats the verdict, is it his original shield from WWII or what?
ngu13 - 4/29/2010, 4:12 PM
@tea are you gana go watch it again m8 .. if so mite pop down your neck of the woods for the day m8
ngu13 - 4/29/2010, 4:20 PM
it looks like the same unfinished sheild from the first film its a shame they used the sheild in ref the way they did in the film they could of gone into it a bit more ... but still good film
Ranger14 - 4/29/2010, 4:22 PM
Nice review, Tea!
JoshWilding - 4/29/2010, 4:37 PM
CDB: I agree with tea - there was nothing hi-tech about it! It was just a half built version and the way that Agent Coulson looked at it definitely hinted at the fact that Cap has a round shield in WWII!

tea: What did you think of (SPOILERS: Highlight To Read!) Fury telling Stark that he's unsuitable for the "Avengers Initiative"? I wasnt entirely sure what to make of that scene but I'm guessing for now, Iron Man isnt actually a member of The Avengers and is only a consultant!? (which might explain why he was the one that got in touch with General Ross? That's what I thought anyway! :P
Hawksblueyes - 4/29/2010, 4:38 PM
Great review tea. I can't wait for this to hit the states.
Paulley - 4/29/2010, 4:38 PM

RorMachine - 4/29/2010, 4:42 PM
Great stuff Mr Bag! I agree on pretty much everything except Scarjo, I thought she out did her self.
ngu13 - 4/29/2010, 4:46 PM
@RorMachine i would love to be thrown about by scarjo o yes
ngu13 - 4/29/2010, 4:48 PM
to have 1 of those legs across my chest would be a nite to remember
ngu13 - 4/29/2010, 4:51 PM
