Film Review: Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2

Director Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr return for this highly anticipated sequel “Iron Man 2″. Continuing from the last film, one thing that hasn’t changed, is the outstanding performances delivered by Robert Downey Jr. You can truly say he was meant to play Tony Shark and this is only added too by the great on screen chemistry with Gwyneth Paltrow.

I wasn’t to sure about the newly casted Don Cheadle in place of Terrence Howard. But he did do a really good job though I personally preferred the original cast of Terrence Howard.

I was glad to see Mickey Rourke play his role perfectly. His performances made a great “whiplash” and he executed it beautifully. Overall I can say the cast did a great job and Scarlett Johansson was amazing, but wished she had a bigger role.
Would I recommend this movie? Iron Man 2 is disappointing in some way; it does not deliver the high pack thrills of its prequel and I felt like something was missing that could have made it great (though I can’t quite put my finger on it) . It’s still worth taking the step out your front door to go see it, thanks to the strong performances of the main cast and the half decent special effect. Take a look and let me know what you think

Rating 7.6/10

(Spolier Alert)

When protecting the world means giving your life to do so, things all change for Tony Stark continuing from the last Iron Man the world is aware that billionaire inventor “Tony Stark” Robert Downey Jr – (Sherlock Holmes) is the Super Hero Iron Man, who they all admire. While Tony Stark is enjoying the lime light, he is ordered for a court summoning where he is demand by the United States Government to turn over the “weapon” called Iron Man. As the government try to prove that the Iron Man suit is dangerous, they call in a weapons expert and Stark industries rival “Justin Hammer” – Sam Rockwell, (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Green Mile) who himself is working with the government to create a duplicate Iron Man. Under pressure from everyone asking him to share his technology with the United States Military, Tony is unwilling to help them because he fears that the technology will slip into the wrong hands. He therefore announces to the world he will not give up the suit and he has done one thing no governemnt has ever achieved, he has created world peace.

Meanwhile the story of the Iron Man has travelled around the world to a mysterious and dangerous foe called “Ivan Vanko” – Mickey Rourke, (The Wrestler) who tends to his dying fathers needs. In his fathers dying words he tells him that Iron Man should have been him and all he could leave him was the knowledge. With the knowledge from his father he creates an alternate and powerful persona known as Whiplash in order to exact revenge on the Stark family for stealing everything from him and his father. Is this the end for iron man?

    A good review, spot on with the fact that this movie had the potential to be great, but missed a vital ingredient in doing so. Felt a little rushed towards the end, but an excellent movie nonetheless.

    Good job Mr.Purewal.

    Gotta Agree with Mr Purewal, I saw this recently in london, liked it, But it is far from perfect and so is the story.

    It was a fun to watch, but story seemed just rushed thru.
