Iron Man 2 (4.5/5)

I went to see this on opening night, and it was awesome.

Iron Man 2 takes place 6 months after the original Iron man left off.  The government wants Stark’s armor, Whiplash wants stark dead, S.H.E.I.L.D. wants him for their own awesome purposes.  Everything seems to be hitting this guy at once.  Actually, this can be considered the best or the worst part of the film.  There are so many things going on at once, it feels a little convoluted.  (did I spell that right?)  This may be a turnoff for some people, but I found it to be to the movie’s benefit.  The complex, chaotic story lends itself well to the comic book film genre as comic books often have complex, chaotic stories.

That being said, they do take a few wrong turns with story direction, but its only minor problems.  The basic plot was epic and both villains are great.  Whiplash is scary and menacing, whereas Hammer is a funny villain.  This makes for a terrific contrast.

The film is very well balanced being equal parts story, action, and humor.  There are a lot of little Easter eggs hidden for us comic nerds.  I do have one complaint that I think needs to be voiced…Black Widow seems to have lost her accent.  She is supposed to have a cool accent, instead…she sounds just like Scarlet Johansson.  I know its not a big deal, but it bothered me.

Overall, this is a great film.  It is not one of my top 5 favorite super-hero movies.  I would recommend you go see it while its still in theaters, you won’t regret it!
