#NowShowing : "I told you I don't want to join your super-secret boy band." Last night the #RoadToEndgame continued with #IronMan2 - my 100th title for the year!
Synopsis: With the world now aware of his identity as Iron Man, Tony Stark must contend with both his declining health and a vengeful mad man with ties to his father's legacy.
Iron Man 2 suffers from too much going on. It's not a bad film, but it's a step down from the first for sure. Between Stark's illness, his relationship with Pepper, Whiplash, his friendship with Rhodey, his relationship with his father, Justin Hammer and his fight with the government it's just stuffed to the gills.
I still enjoy many aspects of it, including Stark's illness subplot and both the storylines of discovering his father's legacy and Vanko's past. Hammer is supposed to be comic relief, but for me he's just annoying. With all due respect to Cheadle, I find him less appealing as Rhodey too.
There's a really good movie hiding in between some of the extraneous parts.
Have you seen this film? 💭 Post your thoughts below!
Iron Man 2 takes the natural, organic look of the first and refines it slightly. The bigger budget definitely helps. Detail is majorly impressive. There's no digital tinkering with the image either. Ultimately, a little banding is the only niggle. The CGI looks amazingly good in some scenes, but there are also some that look worse than those that appeared in the first film.
By 2010, Paramount was issuing discs with DTS-HD MA. This 5.1 track packs a punch and then some. Dynamics are great, surrounds are in constant use and weapons fire and explosions are supported by generous LFE content. There are no problems with dialogue either.
