Rated PG-13 · 124 minutes · 2010

Action, Adventure, Science fiction
A few too many subplots and villains can’t keep this sequel from being relatively enjoyable. Robert Downey Jr. still dazzles as Tony Stark, the billionaire who outed himself as a superhero in the first film. This time, he battles an evil Russian scientist (a hammy Mickey Rourke), a crooked arms developer (a splendid Sam Rockwell) and a slimy senator (Garry Shandling, a victim of horrible plastic surgery). On top of all this, Stark must deal with his friend Rhodey (Don Cheadle, replacing Terrence Howard) stealing one of his suits, and the fact that he is dying. You also get Scarlett Johansson as a butt-kicking spy, and all sorts of teasers for the upcoming Avengers movie. It seems like director Jon Favreau and screenwriter Justin Theroux were trying to make four movies in one. It’s a mess, but it’s an enjoyable mess.

Colorado Springs Independent Iron supplement: Iron Man 2 Exposition might be the only order of this movie's business: With all the fireworks, the gadgetry, the corporatized idol worship and heavy-duty charm, it finally amounts to a Marvel Studios trade show. by Jonathan Kiefer 05/06/2010
Indy Week Iron Man ramps up the camp but falls flat Iron Man was a popcorn movie that dared to succeed during an era of brooding movie heroism. Iron Man 2 suffers not only by comparison but also due to its strained efforts to please an audience now hip to its hipness. by Neil Morris 05/06/2010
