Just got back from seeing it. I liked it a lot, it had fun set-pieces, balls-to-the-wall action, funny dialouge, and plenty of charm, primarily provided by RDJ. Almost outshining him was Rockwell, though, who goes all out with his crazy I-think-I'm-loveable-but-actually-I-come-off-as-a-douche persona. Rourke did a competent job as Whiplash, but the role doesn't demand much. The female leads were kinda stiff, but L. Jackson was being L. Jackson to the fullest.
There were plenty of nerdy shout-outs, and my even-geekier-than-me friend ended up squealing several times, especially at the after-credit scene. Overall it's not as strong as the first one, but I love that movie a whole lot. If you like Iron Man, you should see this film.
I watched Iron man 1 and really love the move. Completely new to Hollywood. A one more super hero with gadgets. The previous were there who don't use any gadgets but as per trend I think the super hero has changed.
I would've gone with this poster to show off the movie in the first post :
Yeah, never saw the first one, but this is my reason for wanting to see the 2nd one .
I think the scene were stark falls down from that plane and lands on the stage was incredible.
Rourke was very cool in this movie, too bad the final fight ended so abruptly, that guy was kicking some serious ass...Mickey Rourke wearing a badass armor? awesome.
Overall the film was ok, although the entire scene where Rhodes and stark fight in stark's house was too forced IMO.
It was a good movie, if you liked the first one then you're gonna like this one. I saw it twice consecutively. The story wasn't as strong as the first, it felt like a collective of great scenes rather than a movie. Mickey Rourke was awesome "[Russia Accent] I want my bird" LMAO!!!
Yeah like Gat, I just thought it was ok. Would rather have just rented it instead of seeing it in theaters. First one was quite a bit better imo. Some of the parts were funny, and the villain was played great. Several parts, though, had very dumb, cheesy lines. It felt like I was watching the new G.I. Joe again...Though I enjoyed seeing the Captain America reference and what Stark did with the shield, I just didn't like the way they hinted at the Avengers movie coming up. Dunno why, just thought they could have done more with that scene. And I just can't take Jackson serious in anything he does after Snake on a Plane, so his character just felt dumb to me and out of place. Chicks were hot though \o/
I loved watching them both, but I loved the first movie just a bit more.
Mickey Rourke ftw.
I enjoyed the first movie more than the sequel; like many of you already stated above me. I thought Rourke played the Whiplash role really well. "Software shit", "drones better"...love the Russian accent. The action scenes were awesome. Something was just not right about "Pepper" in this movie compared to the first imo. But anywhoo...
Red-haired, Scarlett Johansson!
