It's not the armor that makes the hero, but the man inside.
With the world now aware of his dual life as the armored superhero Iron Man, billionaire inventor Tony Stark 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, and James "Rhodey" Rhodes at his side, must forge new alliances - and confront powerful enemies.

Solid action-packed funny sequel.

It's not a memorable movie and at a certain point, I kind of disliked Tony Stark.

I thought Ivan Vanko's motivations weren't explained properly. So, I actually decided to make Justin Hammer the main villain in my head and ended up enjoying the movie a little bit more.

As part of Marvel's Cinematic Universe (MCU) Phase One, Jon Favreau (Made. Elf. Zathura) once again returns to direct. It may not be as much fun as the first one, but when the dust settles, it'll do and with the introduction of Scarlett Johnansson's 'Black Widow' the movie gets more enjoyable and a little bit sexier. Downey Jr as always gives a great performance as Tony Stark. Where I find the plot and multiple villians just a tad misguided, the visual effects steal the show, apart from a few artifacts left on screen by the CG, the Monaco Race scene is guilty of this and doesn't look as good as the rest of the movie. My only other niggle is that Pepper Pots, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, didn't really bring a lot to the flow of the movie itself, well, maybe some little laughs. Mickey Rourke as Whiplash was passable, but if they had just focused on the one villian, Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer (Starks Competition) was very good, then who knows. Enjoyable comic book fun
