WHAT WAS GOOD?
If you were a fan of the original Iron Man film then Iron Man 2 delivered more of the same in terms of humour, action and of course Robert Downey Jr.
Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell were great in their roles as villains and it was good to see War Machine introduced into the story.
A particular highlight was a scene where Tony Stark transformed into Iron Man courtesy of a technologically advanced brief case. Stark dropped the case to the ground and within an instant the suit constructed around him. Genuis!
WHAT WAS BAD?
Although Iron Man 2 was more or less on par with the original film in terms of entertainment there were a couple of problems. One was that the movie was too 'Avengers heavy', which detracted from the value of the film as a standalone piece and the other was that the climactic finale with Iron Man and War Machine fighting Justin Hammer's drones was anti-climactic.
WHY PUSH THE BUTTON?
Iron Man 2 was a whole heap of fun, with huge spectacle, heaps of laughs and some cool visuals, yet it wasn't quite as good as the first film as it lacked the originality that Iron Man brought to table. For this reason Iron Man 2 is worthy of the button treatment as it will never quite beat the original...
...pushing the button would be a mistake as Iron Man 2 rules! No button pushing today.
