What do you call an action movie without much action? A pyramid! Uh, I mean, Iron Man 2. There were only three action sequences in an over 2 hour-long movie! Well fine, maybe this movie was meant to be story driven, but it’s a fairly standard yarn for a comic book movie. It also had its archetypical dose of nonsense and stupidities that has become part of the preposterous formula, alongside the aforementioned generic storyline, that has plagued many movies today. However, thanks to some solid acting, comedy points and Scarlett Johansson, I was able to somewhat enjoy this movie.

Verdict: Rent It

    This was one of the better movies sequels to come out in a while. I do agree it’s worth a rental

    • I would agree with you on it being better than most sequels because, honestly, what good sequels (aside from Toy Story 3) have come out lately?
      Calling this movie a better sequel than others that have come out lately is like calling somewhat stale bread tasty when all the other bread you have is moldy and bug infested. It’s not very good, but it’s more desirable in comparison to your other options.
