Whiplash, leather and boy bands – Iron Man is back!

May 13th, 2010

Iron Man

Hombres and Chicas! What’s going on guys?! Let me introduce myself. My name’s Jeremy and I’m psyched to announce that I’ll be your new film reviewer here at MuchMusic. My job will be to get you guys the inside-scoop of what’s legit these days in theatres and around in the industry. I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty stoked to kick this off! And what what better way than with one of the hottest blockbuster flicks this summer, Iron Man 2!

Director: Jon Favreau.
Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sam Rockwell, Scarlett Johansson, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Plot: Six months since he’s announced himself as Iron Man, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has brought temporary peace to the world. But somehow Uncle Sam a.k.a. the U.S. government is still rattled, because Stark refuses to hand over his suit and technology. The government thinks any man is too dangerous to possess that kind of weaponry. Along with that, Stark has sleazy weapons-manufacturer Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) to compete with, who’s waiting for the right moment to one-up Stark’s reputation.

More spoilers and deets after the jump!

That moment comes with our main evil villain of the story, Ivan Vanko a.k.a “Whiplash” (Mickey Rourke)- a scary looking psychotic Russian who’s determined to get revenge on the Stark family after his father was betrayed by Tony’s father back-in-the-day.

However, what makes him dangerous is that he’s also a pretty smart physicist to boot, and has created a pair of crazy electric laser-whips attached to each arm, which are powered by a mini-reactor (just like in Tony’s suit) to wreck havoc wherever he can. Add on the fact that Hammer decides to financially back the mad-Russian in an attempt to have him create updated Iron Man suits that would surpass and eliminate Stark’s legacy, and you have a pretty evil duo.

But the story doesn’t stop there.

Along the way, we see a few subplots:

A) The news that Stark is slowly dying due to the effects of living with an arc-reactor inside his chest causes him to live more recklessly than he usually does.

B) The arrival of a smoking-hot, feisty and mysterious new assistant Natalie Rushman (Scarlett Johansson) after Stark promotes his old assistant/love-flame Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) to C.E.O of Stark Industries. Rushman also ends up being revealed as a special S.H.I.E.L.D agent who’s under-cover to watch over Stark – and oh yea, she’s a super martial-artist too.

C) S.H.I.E.L.D Captain Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) trying to recruit Stark for the Avengers project.

and D) The creation of “War Machine” – a silver-plated Iron Man suit that gets acquired by the the military’s and Stark’s buddy Lt. Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle), and is suped-up with enough fire power and weaponry to exceed every soldier’s ultimate dream. Expect to see Rhodey and Stark go at it, metal-to-metal, scrapping out a few issues between each other and then also team-up near the end of the movie, while they take on a line-up of mega drones and a teched-up angry Russian “Whiplash.”

Opinion: It goes without saying that sequels are a very tricky thing, especially when the first movie is amazing. But, I must say that Iron Man 2 was indeed awesome. Maybe not as good as the first. But, still pretty kick-ass. The special effects are without a doubt beyond wicked. And the acting is actually pretty decent too. I loved seeing Robert Downy Jr. take the screen again in all his sarcastic, cocky, witty and ballsy glory as Stark. The only issue would be that maaaaybe there’s a bit too many sub-plot lines that make the story a bit confusing. Other than that, it’s pure entertainment that will leave you satisfied.

Best moment(s):

1) The Ironman “Suit”-Case. Enough said. It’s probably the only gadget I really want in life, from this moment on. Seeing Stark carry a suitcase into the middle of danger and then have it suddenly assemble onto his body as the Iron Man suit is actually amazing.

2) The Ironman “laser-arm” sweep-attack at the end of the mega-drone fight was pretty “wow-ing” stuff too. A new move which I approve of.

3) Tony Stark speaking about the Avengers to Captain Fury- “No, I will not join your super secret boy-band.”

4) Scarlett Johanson in a leather suit. Good god.

6) The bonus scene at the end. I don’t wanna give it away completely, but I’ll only say it has to do with an all-mighty hammer.

Rating: 4/5- If you’re not trying to make an intense comparison between the first movie and the sequel, then go see it. It’s definitely worth the money. Entertainment to the max, action-packed Iron Man power-blasts, sarcastic comical hilarity, and of course, a hot babe assistant who knows mixed martial arts. What more do you need?
