Today we’re reviewing Iron Man 2.
From IMBD, here’s a little blurb about the movie:
Billionaire Tony Stark must contend with deadly issues involving the government, his own friends, as well as new enemies due to his superhero alter ego Iron Man.
Deadly issues–I would say so. Before I get into the “review” I’d just like to say, I went in with HIGH expectations for this movie. I mean, the first one was amazing, tough to top that.
But, they did.
I liked this one even better than the first.
Probably because they showed more of the character. I was worried, though, because in the first few minutes Tony Stark came off more cocky and narcissistic than usual. I mean, I can only take sooo much of that before it gets a bit annoying.
I even leaned over to my friend, KM Wilsher, and said, “Hmmm, God has a way of humbling people when they’re that cocky.”
And I wasn’t wrong.
But, of course, I won’t get into those details. . . you must see it to find out.
I felt like there was more plot to this one and it took me deeper and deeper into Tony Stark’s life. I liked that. Made me really connect with him. That’s important to me both in the movies I see and the books I read.
Although I liked Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper (love that name). . . I did find it seriously annoying that, more than once in the movie, she was sissy- screaming.
Seriously, it was the clueless-damsel-in-distress-type sissy-screaming!
I can’t stand that. I like it when the chicks can kick some serious butt.
Having said all that–it didn’t detract from the overall movie enough to keep me from giving it our highest rating: FIVE movie tickets:
Have you seen it? What did you think?
