Movie: Iron Man 2

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9

Genre: Superhero, adventure

Series or set: Iron Man

Number in series: 2nd

Primary actors: Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mickey Rourke

Length: Two hours

Time period: Present (future????)

Year it came out: 2010

My overall opinion: As you may recall, I came out of Iron Man 1 feeling pretty apathetic – sure, it was a good movie. I didn’t love it, didn’t hate it. Gave it an 8.  But this one! Now that I finally got to see it, wow, did I ever enjoy it! Tony Stark is definitely growing on me. There were some great scenes and some amazing CGI work. Gwyneth absolutely aced the role of Pepper Potts. All the action sequences were spell-binding. Definitely a movie I’d like to see again!

Hee! I have a friend who feels just the way you do -- loves this one, is kind of annh about the first one. I'm the opposite. Isn't it fascinating how one person's sweet spots are so different from another's, and so they react completely differently to any given story?

Loved Scarlett's Black Widow character in this one, this one is probably my favorite of the 3 movies but part 3 is also pretty good! I enjoy the mixture of comedy and action with the Iron Man movies and Tony Stark grows on me also :)
