It wasn't quite as good as the first IRON MAN movie (click here), but IRON MAN 2 did have a lot of fun and contained more popcorn action and impressive visuals that'll blow the audience. It's a shame that Terence Howard got replaced by Don Cheadle for the role of Lt. Colonel James Rhodes, but the things that I might want to talk about is the main villain played by Mickey Rourke. Might I say that Mickey done an outstanding job of playing the villain, and it would be without uncertainty to say his character Ivan Vanko is in fact a very interesting foe who uses those electric whips. At the after-credits scene on the first hit, Samuel Jackson was already cast by actor/director Jon Favreau to portray as Nick Fury. It's the start of his nine-year contract and the character he plays got into a supporting lead instead of a featured cameo presence.
This film is also complimented with two songs of the Aussie rock band AC/DC and I would confess I'm not a huge fan of AC/DC but for this film I have to say was very fitting.
While not compared to the first instalment, IRON MAN 2 was a very worthy sequel and I think it does offer the Marvel fans some valuable entertainment.
Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
