| Very good, but sadly not as good as Iron Man 1
I'm really torn between a rating of 7 and 8 and should probably see it again before a final verdict. But my initial feeling is this one had too much talk and too little heart.

While there certainly was more action, the action scenes - especially the last - did not feel threatening at all. The one possible exception to this is the first battle between Iron Man and Whiplash - the one on the race track from the trailer.

The main problem is probably too much dialog, possibly too much happening, and too little heart. Too few quiet moments. I'm not sure.

My guess is the film makers heard that people loved the humor from the first (which was mostly ad-libbed from the actors) but missed more action. So they apparently gave the whole cast (of GREAT actors all around!) free reign to talk up as much as they want in each and every scene. And they added action sequence after action sequence to make up for the mere two major sequences from Iron Man 1.

The end result was slightly underwhelming, yet almost satisfying.

Did You Know?


In the comics, Tony Stark possesses a suitcase containing a portable suit of armor. This famous "suitcase armor" has been revised for the film. The suitcase converts into a series of plates that slide over a wire framework.

(at around 10 mins) When the U.S. Marshal hands the subpoena to Stark, she is holding it in her right hand as she faces the camera. In the immediate reverse shot (focusing on Stark at the wheel), she is holding the subpoena in her left hand.

Crazy Credits

The theatrical end credits incorrectly list current AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson as a co-songwriter for AC/DC's "Highway to Hell", when it should have been the late Bon Scott.

Alternate Versions

The mainland Chinese release obscures Vanko's nationality by reversing all Russian references on the soundtrack. For example, the word "Russia" comes out as something like "Ashar", and "Siberia" as "Ayuribias". The subtitles and the Mandarin-dubbed version simply delete these references altogether.
