It is non-stop action... edge of your seat mayhem. Robert Downey Jr.'s performance as (Tony Stark) is exquisite! This film is definitely a step up from the last film. Don Cheadle (Lt. Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes / War Machine) and Robert Downey Jr. are a classic pair that really makes this film come to life. A classic tale of the villain - who is played by Mickey Rourke (Ivan Vanko) - and the hero but in this film there are actually two heroes. Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts) came through with a great performance as well. She becomes a significant part of the film as her role changes dramatically towards the middle of the film. Scarlett Johansson does an amazing job as Natalie Rushman / Natasha Romanoff the female opposite of Samuel L. Jackson who plays Nick Fury. A woman in an action role is always something great to watch but if they can act and pull off the stunts as well (with no stand in) that is just amazing!
"You think you got what it takes to wear that suit?"
"Don't get so attached to things. Learn to let go."
Although Samuel L. Jackson's role as Nick Fury role wasn't very long in this movie he still adds something to the film as well. The casting choices are very fitting in this film and bring out the best in each actor/actress.
Special effects are out of this world but the choice of shots make an even more distinct impact on the quality of the film. If you have not seen this film you definitely need to set aside some time to go check it out. Iron Man 2... is that hardcore action filled adrenalin rush you've been craving with a mysterious twist!
As always remember to be "REEL" and stay on the MOVE!
