Action adventure.

2010. 120 min.

With Robert Downey Jnr, Mickey Rourke and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Director: Jon Favreau.


Rating: 3/5

The story picks up from the first movie in which Tony Stark (Downey Jnr) revealed he’s Iron Man.

Now the US military wants his technology but he refuses in typical Stark style: “I’ve successfully privatised world peace. What more do you want!”

When James Rhodes (Don Cheadle) steals one of Tony’s armoured suits an army of fighting machines is unleashed.

Although the fight scenes don’t come close to those of the first instalment, the villain – Mickey Rourke in all his brilliant madness as Ivan Vanko, aka Whiplash – is very entertaining.

Tony is still trying to impress his love, Pepper Potts (Paltrow). Watch out for Scarlett Johansson as a Catwoman-like action hero.

Things become a bit predictable towards the end although Downey Jnr’s off-beat humour and charm will keep you watching.

Bonus: commentary.
