This pictur was action packed form begining to end. I really liked that it was kid friendly were I could sit with my son without covering his eyes or ears. It also had a real good story line to follow with out jumping form one idea to another. You will love the action that takes place, to the point I was flying my arms and legs to help Iron Man fight the villain. As you will see he had more then enough help without giving the story away. This is agreat movie for the family to watch together and have much to talk about after the show. The MUSIC in the movie even has you partying in your seat. Enjoy the show!

Iron Man was done folowing the basic comic book story lines.It was done well with great action and special effects. It didn't have the impact of the original which I considered to be a first rate film, probably the best of the comic book genre I had seen so far, with Robert Downey creating a Tony Stark that quite frankly made the movie a blockbuster.
The sequel was quite frankly a sequel, and the Tony Stark character became more of a buffoon, emotionally stunted lacking real development rather than the responsible super hero Stan Lee created. It was this image that made Iron Man a super hero, a leader, despite not having any real super powers. It was not the suit that made him. Mr. Downey captured that quality in the first movie and is suprisingly lacking in the second.
Still performances were adequate, humour trite and predictable, and action superb. Its a don't miss for comic book afficiaonados and very entertaining either way. Kids and game freaks would be captivated.

There was a lot of hype surrounding the release of iron Man 2 and, as an avid Comic Book Fan, I had some pretty high expectations of this movie as well. I must say that I was not disappointed. This film was exceptional in every way, from the action scenes, the humorous dialog and the throw-ins to other popular Marvel Characters. I was happy to see the War Machine suit as well as the Mark IV, and Mark V suits. Downey Jr. was brilliant in this film and Don Cheadle played a great Rhodie. The film is equally suitable for children and adults, which is important to me as I have three children. I will be watching this movie again and again.
