This weekend the highly anticipated Iron Man 2 movie came out and I was among the many who couldn’t wait to see it. I am no Roger Ebert , so my review is not a technical, critical one, but one from a person who enjoys going to movies. Those are the kinds of reviews I enjoy reading, so that is how I write mine.

I will NOT give away any spoilers, but you can find some here.

First off the acting was amazing for the most part. Mickey Rourke is a bad man, and he really took this movie to another level. No one could have played his part as well, and it was incredible to watch him in action. Robert Downey, Jr. was also great, but I felt his character struggled with too many issues, not focusing on any particular one enough. It was kind of all over the place in that aspect, where as Rourke’s character had one objective.

I was disappointed that Scarlett Johansson didn’t have more screen time. She did a great job, and he action fighting scenes were great, but really she probably only has to be on set for two days to film! I wish there was more of her!

The cameo from DJ AM was awesome, and just reminds you how long these movies take in post-production.

There was just enough humor to keep it light, and show that Downey Jr. was more than comfortable being Iron Man. The action scenes were intense, loud, and comparable to any other summer blockbuster action movie, but the final fight scene fell a little short for me. Literally.

Overall, I thought it was a good movie, definitely worth ticket price. Not one of my favorites, and not as good as the original, but it is easy to see why it raked in $133.6 million. I give it a solid B+.

So that is my Iron Man 2 review. Check out pictures from the premieres below, along with video from the trailer. Leave me your comments about the movie below. What was your overall review?
