Crazy Credits

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 »

Alternate Versions

The version available through Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and EPIX are all cropped to 1.78:1. This is odd, because all three of these services usually maintain the 2.39:1 ratio through letterbox, in order to keep the original picture information. See more »

Really good sequel
21 November 2019 | by masonsaulSee all my reviews

It isn't as good as the original but Iron Man 2 is still a really good sequel. Robert Downey Jr. once again gives an incredible performance and is extremely charismatic. Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Sam Rockwell all give great performances. Jon Favreau's direction is really good and it's consistently funny. The CG is impressive and the music by John Denney is good. However, Mickey Rourke is wasted as a forgettable villain and the final battle is a little short.
