I went to see Iron Man 2 over the weekend. I hadn’t seen it yet simply because I didn’t feel like fighting with a bunch of people opening weekend, and I was out of town for a while. Anyways I went to see is Sunday night at The Monaco.
First let me say, holy shit Scarlett Johansson hot. I just couldn’t keep from staring at her. Then the scene with her changing in the back seat! Oh man, just awesome.
Anyways, on to the film. I liked the film but thought the first Iron Man was better. This one seemed too “comic book like” is the only way I can describe it. I know that probably doesn’t make sense, but I don’t know how to explain it. I didn’t like how “I know best for the world” Tony Stark was. Also I didn’t like how through the entire movie broken glass was treated like confetti! Everywhere you looked glass was being broken, but not a sole was hurt by falling shards of glass. How many times do you think you can blow up a bottle of wine at a party before someone gets hurt. I’m guessing it’s like once. Not Iron Man, he just keeps blowing shit up.
Now I really dug Samuel L. Jackson. The scene with Samuel L. Jackson and Iron Man sitting having breakfast in a dinner was just awesome. It was reminiscence of the dinner scenes in Pulp Fiction.
So in conclusion I liked the movie, it was very entertaining but I felt the first one was better. Not by much mind you, just enough to give this one a 4.5 instead of 5 like I would have giving the fist one if I had seen it in the theater.
