Jon Favreau’s first two Iron Man films were more or less mixed bags for me. While I thought the first movie lacked ambition and did not take any risks, the screenplay and the direction was steady … more
Tony Stark takes on a terrorist group who is poised to topple the American government with super powered humans. Really fun movie that pulls plenty from the comics, makes it's own and goes from there. … more
Proof that the law of diminishing returns doesn't always apply, the third film in the Iron Man series is the best of the bunch. Indeed, I would go as far as to say that this is one of the best Marvel … more
The promotion about Iron Man 3 was all over town way before the movie hits the theater. It's been long since I looked forward to a new movie, not even for Oblivion which I watched last week. That … more
It was a bit of humor, romance and lots of action packed scenes. America needs a hero, if not many unbeatable heroes! Entertaining and worth going for movie, especially for kids, teenagers and those who … more
Plenty of action. Plenty of drama, partying, flirting. But it lacked the heart of the first film (pardon the pun) and felt more choppy and predictable. There was one very satisfying relational moment, … more

The first Iron Man is and will always be the better film, but Iron Man 2 is still a superbly entertaining, albeit somewhat uneven film tailor-made for the summer audience. It features strong action scenes, … more
The United States government is now demanding of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) that he hand over his advanced armor technology to the military. Stark publically refuses in a fashion that gets him a … more
In my opinion, Marvel has always been just a little bit ahead of DC and other comic publishers when it comes to social issues and personal conflict. Tony Stark is the perfect example of that, particularly … more

Nowhere near as good as the original film. The problem with Iron Man 2 is that it fails to improve upon the first film. It also didn't help that they brought in the Black Widow and Nick Fury characters … more

I just sat through Iron Man 2 for the second time, and must say I enjoyed this go around better than my first screening. Perhaps it was because I was with a friend who did nto see the original, so he … more

Follow up to the 2008 superhit has a weaker arc and to compensate throws in a lot more goings on as Tony Stark deals with the US Government, other weapons manufacturers and a revenge seeking Russian Physicist. … more

Iron Man 2 is good, but it's also pretty slow. Save for a couple of action sequences, the story doesn't really have a whole lot of action until the last half hour or so. It's actually amazing just how … more
Set up to be an epic tale, Armor Wars falls short. For one thing, there's little here beyond a series of iron-on-iron fights that Iron Man ultimately -- and often very easily -- wins. It grows tiresome … more
Robert Downey, Jr. dons red armor once again as Tony Stark in this second go-round for Iron Man. With all of the primary cast returning except for Terence Howard (replaced by Don Cheadle), this sequel … more

Good movie. I liked the first one better only because it focused more on the story line before getting too involved with the action like the second iron man. I feel the same way with transformers if you … more

The best asset of a superhero franchise is when any installment lacks hubris: either from its hero or from those who design it. When a superhero is thrust in such peril that the outcome is in question, … more
