What a really awesome sequel!!!
Being a fan of the first movie i must admit that the trailer left me with some doubts about this movie.
It seemed to be a normal action movie but with a lot (and i mean A LOT) of comedy which could really kill the movie right from the start.
But it wasnt the case as Iron Man 2 is a full packed action film with great special effects and most important (in super hero comic related movies) , it stays true to the comic books history!
Robert Downey Jr. plays once again Tony Stark and is alter ego Iron Man superbly like in the first movie , as for the rest of the cast of the first movie only Gwyneth Paltrow returns as Petter Potts , Stark´s secretary and love.
The only flaw in my movie in my eyes is the re cast of War Machine (played by Don Cheadle in this one and Terrence Howard in the first one) but even that is acceptable has Cheadle really makes you forget Howard.
New comers Mickey Rourke and Scarlett Johansson also shine in their own way specially Johansson with her mysterious character as a SHIELD undercover agent called Black Widow(hopefully more to come from her in a new Iron Man movie or a movie about SHIELD)
Mickey Rourke does a great job as the villain Whiplash and as usual a very solid performance by him during the movie , the last battle was short but at the same time intense!
But this sequel has its biggest win in the small tips and clues that it delivers through out the movie!!
Loved the hints about Captain America , The Avengers Project and Thor! So very well done!! 🙂
In conclusion a very good sequel and it leaves you wanting for more! Be sure if you like the movie to get the Blu-Ray version because this movie in that format will come out flawless 🙂 , also if you havent seen the movie yet be sure to stay after the credits!! 😉
