Iron Man 2 directed by Jon Favreau hit theaters recently with tons of hype and anticipation from fans around the globe. I Feel bad for all you die hard fans out there.
I was not impressed what-so-ever with this film, I had such high hopes after the crappy job they did on the first. I swore this one HAD to be better then the first, I was unfortunately gravely mistaken.
Big fan of Robert Downey Jr. and Mickey Rourke, what in the world is not to love in these two fabulous actors! They gave it a shot but I didn't buy it, sorry guys. Man oh man this story line was choppy throughout the entire film, the script was poorly written and the actors were left looking like babbling fools.
Pepper Potts was driving me crazy with her constant whiney gibberish and screaming every single time some kind of danger was going on, the woman had no back bone at all. Scarlett Jo was just thrown into the movie to have 1 more hott chick prancing around in tight cloths making everyone hot and bothered. But really what was the point of her being in the movie? No really, do you know cause I don't get it.
I will give some credit to the few times when I did laugh at the jokes but a couple ha-ha moments are not worth it for me. The actions sequences were ok but its all stuff I have seen before, nothing new was really brought to the table on this one. And ok lets portray our government as the "bad guy" once again, super original bravo what a concept for a movie!
Come on guys, this movie had potential to surpass the first one by miles. But it fell really freakin short of being any more than a slap together film to make a buck. Was not impressed and felt robbed, AGAIN, after leaving the theater.
Sorry to those fans who thought the first film was amazing as far as Marvel movies go (cough Uriah cough) both films have sucked and all they have shown is that hollywood will throw just about anything at us to make the green.
Case in point A-Team............need I say more? Meh.
