I finally saw Iron Man 2 (not in 3-D), and it did not disappoint. I had no expectations for the first film in the franchise, yet I loved it. But Iron Man 2 was destined to be better. I mean it had Mickey Rourke (Yes!), Don Cheadle replacing Terrence Howard (upgrade!), Scarlett Johansson (eye candy!) and Sam Jackson (looked heavier!). It is a fun film, well acted (especially Robert Downey Jr.) and has a ton of great special effects. Mix in the AC/DC that is peppered throughout the flick and you’re gonna leave knowing your money was well spent.
BoxOfficeMoJo.com has Iron Man 2 at near a HALF a BILLION DOLLARS Worldwide in not even two weeks! It debuted and appeared in more theaters…4,380 than any movie in history. RottenTomatoes.com has it rated 74% FRESH, which for a major hollywood blockbuster isn’t bad.
Iron Man 2 may not break all of the records (high bar Avatar), but it is taking in a sh*tload of money. People seem to love it. And it is making Robert Downey Jr. and John Favreau FILTHY RICH!!
