I have to admit this wasn't the woke nightmare I fully expected it to be. Certainly not the best Marvel film but far from the worst..

Iron Man 2

Trailer


RATED7.0 Plot

Now that Tony Stark has revealed to the world that he is Iron Man, the entire world is now eager to get their hands on his hot technology – whether it's the United States government, weapons contractors, or someone else. That someone else happens to be Ivan Vanko – the son of now deceased Anton Vanko, Howard Stark's former partner. Stark had Vanko banished to Russia for conspiring to commit treason against the US, and now Ivan wants revenge against Tony – and he's willing to get it at any cost. But after being humiliated in front of the Senate Armed Forces Committee, rival weapons contractor Justin Hammer sees Ivan as the key to upping his status against Stark Enterprises after an attack on the Monaco 500. But an ailing Tony has to figure out a way to save himself, get Vanko, and get Hammer before the government shows up and takes his beloved suits away. And can he figure out what a mysterious figure named Nick Fury wants with him?

Summary

This is a bit of a disappointment after the high standard set by the first film. The villain is rather lacklustre and seemingly defeated a bit too easily at the end..

RATED7.9 Plot

Tony Stark. Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist. Son of legendary inventor and weapons contractor Howard Stark. When Tony Stark is assigned to give a weapons presentation to an Iraqi unit led by Lt. Col. James Rhodes, he's given a ride on enemy lines. That ride ends badly when Stark's Humvee that he's riding in is attacked by enemy combatants. He survives – barely – with a chest full of shrapnel and a car battery attached to his heart. In order to survive he comes up with a way to miniaturize the battery and figures out that the battery can power something else. Thus Iron Man is born. He uses the primitive device to escape from the cave in Iraq. Once back home, he then begins work on perfecting the Iron Man suit. But the man who was put in charge of Stark Industries has plans of his own to take over Tony's technology for other matters.

Summary

Great introduction to the wise cracking Tony Stark. Even now it stands up as one of the best Marvel films..

Another good early film for the Marvel Universe. Chris Hemsworth makes the part his own. Good funny turn from Kat Dennings.
