Re: OFFICIAL: Rate & Review Iron Man 2 continued...
I just watched Iron Man 2, and have to say, I really enjoyed it. I am confused as to where all of the hate is coming from. Sure, Hammer was not a threatening villain (the camp was overdone,) but, overall, it is a satisfying film. My only pet peeve is that someone should have stood up to Rourke and said no about the bird. His artistic decisions are recycled cliches: I kept expecting him to appear in the next scene with a peg leg.
Overall, I think the film will hold up when I return to it, along with the rest of the other MCU films for the independent study I am doing on them this semester. Being able to examine the films through a political and historical lens is going to be fun.
