Marvel Movie Marathon: 'Iron Man 2' (2010)

*This post contains spoilers for Iron Man 2 (2010). You have been warned!*


Of the three Iron Man films, this is probably the one that stands out the least. It feels like they took the first one and tweaked it a little bit, and the result is a slightly darker, slightly more bloated version of the original Iron Man. I think I could pretty much copy and paste my commentary on Iron Man (2008) here and it would basically be the same. Tony Stark is by far the most memorable part of this movie, and the moments when he is on screen are the highlights of the movie. He's just the same lovable asshole he was in the prequel, but ten times more self-destructive to the point where I was actually happy to see Fury, Coulson and Natasha giving him strict orders in an attempt to stop him from almost killing himself.

Most of the joy I got out of this film came from the references to other characters in the MCU: Coulson finding Captain America's shield in Tony's workshop, the events in New Mexico that are also teased in the post-credits scene, and the knowledge that everything is building up to The Avengers. I certainly got no joy from Justin Hammer, one of the main villains. In fact, I wrote in my Notes app while I was watching the movie 'Hammer is a condescending prick and I hate him.' He's probably my current least-favourite villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe because he's irritating, unlikeable and, as I've mentioned above, condescending. Everything he says and does annoys me. It's not that all movie villains have to be likeable, but when your villain is detestable for all the wrong reasons, it doesn't exactly add much to a film.

For now, I'm going to place the film here. It has its faults, but Tony Stark is an entertaining enough character to counteract the other aspects.

  1. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn't disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you'd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you weren't too busy looking for attention.
