A lot of Whiplash's identifying features were suggested by Mickey Rourke himself. He wanted to perform half of his role in Russian, and consulted on the character's tattoos and gold teeth as well as having a pet cockatoo. In fact, Rourke paid for the bird and the gold teeth out of his own pocket. See more »
(at around 7 mins) After the 'Ironettes' finish their performance, Tony Stark walks onto the stage. When he looks at the Ironettes the camera is facing his front, and his bow tie is crooked. The camera angle changes to show his back, and when he turns around to see his front, his bow tie is straight. See more »

I'm sorry, Mr. Stark, but do you honestly expect us to believe that that was a bodyguard in a suit that conveniently appeared, despite the fact that...

There is a scene after the closing credits: Agent Coulson arrives in New Mexico and locates a crater in which lies the war hammer Mjolnir. This is in fact an alternate version of the same scene from Thor (2011). See more »
Jon Favreau knew exactly what he was doing with this movie. This is a sleek, no-holds barred superhero movie, with great performances from Robert Downey Jr. and Mickey Rourke. Let's face it, it was almost impossible to top the first one; nevertheless this a good sequel to one of the best superhero movies ever made.
Scarlett Johansson fulfilled her role as the the sexy and cunning agent Natasha Romanoff, and Gwyneth Paltrow is fine as Pepper Potts. Sam Rockwell plays Tony Stark's competitor, and does a pretty good job at it.
The only problem I have with this movie is that too many things have been fitted into 124 minutes. I understand that the movie was meant to be a roller-coaster ride, intended to thrill, but a little more character development would certainly have helped the movie. For example Samuel L. Jackson ans Johansson's characters are underused. Also, the ending was a little disoriented and predictable; something just didn't feel right about it.
All in all, Jon Favreau has made a movie that would please the fanboys and satisfy the critics. This is a movie that entertains, while still complementing the first movie, and setting up a third movie. If you liked the first movie, just go ahead and watch this movie - you won't see a masterpiece, but you'll have a fun day at the movies.
P.S.- Watch out for the after credits scene
