Worse? As in Iron Man was bad, and Iron Man 2 was worse? No.

Now, was it as good as Iron Man? No. I'd even go as far as to say it was Marvel Studios' weakest, tied with Incredible Hulk. Both excelled, while the other failed. Iron Man 2 was great on character, but gave the villain nothing to do, whereas Hulk did the opposite. But it's not a bad movie, nor is TIH. It's just not their top three material, imo.

Pepper and Rhodey are better in the first movie
Happy is better in the second film
I might think they're equal for now

Just finished watching it for the first time since '10 in the theater. At first I didn't like it much. After watching it today, I like it a lot more. It's definitely not as great at the first, but still a fun IM film with some heart. Wasn't as inventive and the action felt forced to me. Also the pacing was kinda off. Loved the first, like the second.

Not really, Cheadle's Rhodey kicks the crap out of "TOOEEEKNEEEE" from IM1.

I actually preferred this to IM1, although the first is great but I just love Don/War Machine in this, such a shame the changed him to Iron Patriot in 3.

I enjoyed them pretty much equally. Though Iron Man 1 had a better story.

IM2 wasn't quite up to IM but was still a fine film. IM3 on the other hand, is the first MU film I don't want to own.

Worse, but still good, and still entertaining. Tony's character was explored exceptionally well, although Vanko was criminally tossed by the wayside. He was such an interesting villain up to Monaco and the prison break. After that, the comeback at the end seemed like it was just the cliche way to wrap the film up.

I liked Whiplash more than Iron Monger...now I don't really like either of the two movies.

I agree way better than IM3. Then again, IM3 is the last movie I can remember since I was a child I actually left the theater angry. I was prepared for the Mandarin but I really has high hopes for the movie. It damaged my faith in Marvel and made me weep Shane Black ( whose earlier non superhero work I really liked) was going to get anywhere near Doc Savage.

You're asking how the guy liked Whiplash more than Iron Monger?

I personally have the same opinion. I think Mickey Rourke's character stood out more. I love nearly every line he had in the movie. His aesthetic, the prison tats, the makeshift arc reactor tech. More interesting to me than Stane/Iron Monger.

I like Iron Man 1 quite a bit more than 2. But I think Whiplash was a cool villain.

But he didn't do anything, really. Confronted Stark on the Monaco track...and pretty much sat around until the third act, where he let IM/WM kill him. Aesthetically he wasn't even that pleasing, just had tattoos and needed a shower and a haircut. Whereas we have with Stane, a wolf in sheep's clothing, a much smarter and more cunning villain, and he almost managed to kill Tony by way of removing his Arc Reactor (in one of the best scenes in the franchise). Vanko came nowhere close to that.
