Robert Downey Jr Makes A Come Back With Iron Man 2

With the world now aware of his dual life as the armored superhero Iron Man, billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) faces pressure from the government, the press, and the public to share his technology with the military.

Unwilling to let go of his invention, Stark, along with Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, must forge new alliances — and confront powerful enemies. Robert Downey Jr. is magnificent in his role. This Tony Stark is like the new role model; girls throw themselves at him & guys wanna be like him.

Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer is his usual effervescent self, and the acting ability of Scarlett Johansson, playing Stark’s beautiful assistant Natalie, continues to astound. His humor is always on the spot and his charms are flawless. His screen presence and how he makes a scene come alive is the major battery that makes this an enjoyable film.

There are more on the mark jokes in this movie than a dozen recent Hollywood comedies. The story is never clunky or slow, the dialogue is intelligent, fast paced, extremely funny, and even occasionally poignant. Jon Favreau who is both a great actor, comedian, and is also the director of the movie did a great job in making this sequel spectacular and continuously fun to watch.

The most nail-biting and inventive sequence of the movie comes about 20 minutes into the movie – at the Grand Prix scene where Ivan causes some spectacular mayhem and destruction. The story itself is told in a masterful, crisp manner.

It utilizes great dialogue that’s witty, perfect use of humor yet again, advancement and complex characterization all the way through. Add the huge comic book style slugfests that were lacking from the first and you have what ten years from now people will be calling the best sequel of the decade. This is truly movie-making of the highest order and it easily deserves all the praise it has generated from both fans and critics alike.

Writer Justin Theroux and director Jon Favreau (who also plays one of Stark’s assistants) have crafted a fantastic sequel that is a cut above the typical Hollywood CGI blockbuster and surpasses the original with style, wit, flair and intelligence.

Iron Man 2 is great. It’s well-written, well-acted, and simultaneously a loving throwback to comic book norm and a break from recent tradition. Excellent story, visual effects, action, all of it combined masterfully to create a great film that delivers entertainment and style throughout, without sacrificing a good plot. It has all the right elements and the cool elements in a proper balance making it fun yet not dumb.The best Marvel movie I have seen in a while.
