Product Description

Product Description

Synopsis: Robert Downey Jr. returns as billionaire Tony Stark in this thrilling sequel to the worldwide blockbuster. Now that his superhero secret has been revealed, Tony's life is more intense than ever. Everyone wants in on the Iron Man technology, whether for power or profit...but for Ivan Vanko ("Whiplash"), it's revenge! Tony must once again suit up and face his most dangerous enemy yet, but not without a few new allies of his own. Co-starring Mickey Rourke, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, Iron Man 2 is a "total blast!" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) Bonus Features: * Commentary: Commentary by Director Jon Favreau

Amazon.ca

After the high-flying adventures of the first Iron Man picture, the billionaire arms manufacturer and irrepressible bon vivant Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) finds himself nursing a hangover. But not like any hangover he's had before: this one is toxic, a potentially deadly condition resulting from heavy metals (or something) bleeding out of the hardware he's installed in the middle of his chest. This is the problem Stark needs to solve in Iron Man 2, not to mention the threat from resentful Russian science whiz Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke), whose father helped create the Iron Man technology. There's an even bigger problem for the film: the need to set up a future Marvel Comics movie universe in which a variety of veteran characters will join forces, a requirement that slows down whatever through-line the movie can generate (although fanboys will have a good time digging the clues laid out here). Actually, the main plot is no great shakes: another Iron Man suit is deployed (Don Cheadle, replacing Terrence Howard from the first film, gets to climb inside), Stark continues to bicker with assistant Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and a weaselly business rival (Sam Rockwell) tries to out-do the Iron Man suit with an army of Vanko-designed drones. Mickey Rourke is a letdown, burdened by a wobbly Russian accent and looking skeptical about the genre foolishness around him, and Scarlett Johansson has to wait until the final couple of reels to unleash some butt-kickin' skills as the future Black Widow. That climax is sufficiently lively, and the initial half-hour, including Stark's smirky appearance before a Senate committee and a wacky showdown at the Monaco Grand Prix, provides a strong, swift opening. But the lull between these high points is crying for more action and more Downey improv. --Robert Horton

This film suffers unfairly in comparison to its predecessor. Iron Man's second outing is certainly not as good as his first but the action scenes are still first rate and Tony's desire to go out in a blaze of self-destructive glory is an interesting starting point for the character. It's his journey back that leaves a bit to be desired. Efforts to tie Vanko's hatred of the Stark family into Tony's arc never really succeed and Mickey Rourke feels wasted in the role. Justin Hammer is also a big misstep as the secondary villain as he's just too ineffectual to seem threatening.

Given the shortcomings of the story, Downey's performance is forced to carry a lot more of the weight this time around, but it's up to the challenge. The bigger and better effects and action sequences also help and Marvel fans get plenty of nods to the wider universe to enjoy. It's all enough to make me forgive, but not ignore, the film's problems.

Extras

The feature length 'making of' is good but (as with most things) not as good as the one for the first movie. There's also very little here for those looking to learn more about the comics, which is a disappointment. Still, the set is jam-packed with extras and looks at the stunt work and digital/practical effects integration are a highlight. There's also a commentary by Favreau and a rather useless "SHIELD data vault" full of tidbits for the uber-fans.

Presentation

As expected, the transfer on 'Iron Man 2' is first rate. This is the perfect shiny showcase for your home theatre. The first film's attention to detail is in full force here and it definitely makes the blu-ray purchase worthwhile.

Bottom Line

The film suffers in comparison to its predecessor, but that doesn't change the fact that it's still a good movie. Those looking to have another fun adventure with Iron Man will find it well worth their time.

I'm definitely not in the majority here, but this movie just didn't do it for me. The same story as the first is remade, with a few new elements, but even the new elements aren't that good and treated with an absolute disrespect for the character. Stark's alcoholism is comical at best instead of being dramatic, his sickness is way too exaggerated for the impact it truly has on the rest of the story. The finale shows many armors, "Phantom Menace" comes to mind, but even more flat.

Robert Downey Jr. still delivers a worthy performance, the special effects are great, and even though Sam Rockwell plays a caricature, although he feels like he's enjoying himself quite a lot, which helps, but having Nick Fury to force the story to go forward doesn't make for a better storyline or a nice pacing.

At least, the second disc contains loads of great special features, because otherwise this set wouldn't be that interesting (for my tastes).

I liked it, but I would have liked to see a little more dialogue. Don't get me wrong, it's there, but I found it lacking.

i had high high expectations for this film,since the first one was so good.i'm happy to say i wasn't disappointed.there is more going on this one that much is certain.Sam Jackson returns as Nick Fury head of Shield in a expanded role.Mickey Rourke plays a baddie(with relish and gusto)Scarlett Johanssen's character is underwritten and underutilized,which is unfortunate,because the character is rife with potential.here's hoping they remedy that situation in the upcoming avengers film.Sam Rockwell has an interesting role.Don Cheadle replaces Terrance Howard as Lt.Colonel James "Rhodey" Rhodes,and i have to say,i think he is a better fit.and of course Robert and Gwyneth return as Pepper and Tony.and we finally get to know Pepper's actual first name.for me,Iron Man 2 is a 5/5

Thoroughly enjoyable movie. Loved the first one and this is almost as good. Sequels have a difficult time standing up to the original concept - especially because of the lack of the novelty factor. But this is a very good movie (if you enjoy the genre - which I do).

Personally, I don't get the negativity towards Iron Man 2. It was no better nor any worse than Iron Man 1. It had its good and bad points, but the blu-ray package itself was quite good.

Tony Stark is back as Iron Man, the whole world now knowing his secret identity. As his comic book counterpart did, Stark has issues and will continue to have issues. Tony Stark never was the happy-go-lucky comic book hero. Bouts of alcoholism and depression are what made this character interesting. That, and knowing his life depends on the life-sustaining arc reactor in his chest. A reactor which is now slowly poisoning him to death.

The villain here is Ivan Vanko, aka Whiplash. Mickey Rourke didn't have to pull out all his acting chops on Whiplash, a shallow character bent on revenge. This revenge sub-plot intertwines with the Stark family's history and the key to a new reactor which can safe Tony's life. Refreshingly, there were only two battles between hero and villain -- too many, and you get overkill.

I was pleased that Jon Favreau's character Happy had a much larger part, as Favreau has always been one of my favourite comedic actors. Scarlet Johansson, someone I just don't get the hype about, was dull and lifeless as always. Sam Jackson as Nick Fury displayed some of the energy and vitality that made him a big name in the early 90's. Gwenyth Paltrow did her best with Pepper Potts, a character who had very little "meat" in the first movie, now given much more to do. In general, most of the roles were better written this time, with some (Rhodes) being neither an improvement nor a disaster.

Some people complained about the pseudo-science.
