Iron Man 2 Icon

Reviews of Iron Man 2.

  • As for the actual grand finale, Downey Jr. and Cheadle seem like they're already network gaming the PS3 release instead of facing any actual threat, and Rourke goes out like a chump.
    - Nick Pinkerton
  • Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man? OK, pretty good. Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark? Brilliant.
    - Richard Roeper
  • Favreau's a workmanlike filmmaker who gets virtuoso performances from his leads, particularly Paltrow and Cheadle, but most of all Downey.
    - Carrie Rickey
  • There are too many new characters, too many crossing story lines, not enough romance and our hero's a smug jerk for the first half hour. Who cares? Iron Man 2 still rocks.
    - Tom Long
  • [Downey's] innate charisma, his ability to deliver cutting lines of dialogue with the perfect inflection, and his capacity to overcome narrative shortcomings are reasons why Iron Man 2 works better than one might suspect.
