Iron Man Tony Stark is dying in this film such a let down. Tony Stark made his girlfriend for CEO the leading executive about his company. What are her credibility when she was only assistant? I hated so much Gwyneth Paltrow in this movie so much. She was so annoying, she kept yelling at Tony that I wanted to shut her mouth and throw her out of the window. He gave away most of his stuff that Pepper Potts worked for 10 years yes 10 years. Tony Stark made a fool out of him self in the suit. He pied in the suit he looked like some gay in the suit. I hated him so much. Iron Man is now a drunk. Why is Iron Man now a drunk? We don't need a superhero that is alcohol addicted. Don Cheadle replaced Terrence Howard that was better Rhodey than Don Cheadle. Rhodey stole a suit from Iron Man, kicked Iron Man's ass and he flew away I agree with Nick Fury how is that possible. Mickey Rourke is the worst villain in the film ever as Ivan Vanko I hated his character so much. Not he was only a psychopath he was ugly too. I did not like Sonda's pitting against Iron Man and War Machine. John Debney replaced Ramin Djawadi's epic music score. I hated the new music theme for Iron Man so much.
I don't like a lot of things in the movie, but there is a good stuff in the film too that I like: The action sequences are good specially the fights on a race track with Whiplash and Iron Man I like that. Samuel L. Jackson is perfect as Nick Fury I wish his character would have more much to do, but the screen writer did not let his character more to do except giving Tony Stark advices. I liked that Tony Stark tried to fix the things he broke it and he tried to make sure with the new element that he structured in his arc reactor and ends his palladium so that he want die. Scarlett Johansson as Natalie Rushman / Natasha Romanoff was her first gig and she was okay I liked her. But acrobatic stunts Johansson's stuntwoman for the fights in which Black Widow fights off Hammer's bodyguards were all fake and not realistic. AC/DC return for this film with three soundtracks: Thunderstruck, Shoot to Thrill and Highway to Hell I like those songs for the movie. So yes AC/DC is one of the reasons why I don't consider Iron Man 2 as the worst MCU movie ever. Listen to this soundtracks and you will enjoy your self. The opening scene in which Iron Man jumps off the plane and you hear that song I like very much. I mean Robert Downey Jr. didn't do a terrible performance as Tony Stark/Iron Man but his character in this movie was a disaster. Paul Bettany's voice as JARVIS is till good and like able to the film.
The rest of the film is a completely disaster they make Iron Man in to total joke in this movie. Jon Favreau ruined the movie what was he thinking? And he got crap for Iron Man Three while in that movie he was decent in here he wasn't. A total disappointment. I liked Captain America: The Winter Soldier more as a sequel I liked Thor: Dark World more than this, Batman Returns much better sequel than Iron Man 2, Superman II MILES way better movie and better sequel than Iron Man 2. The score is 8 half I liked half I hated it, the weakest Iron Man film ever in my opinion but at least so MILES much way better film than Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) I will never watch that movie again!!!
