With the world now aware of his identity as Iron Man, Tony Stark must contend with both his declining health and a vengeful mad man with ties to his father's legacy.

The sequel to Iron Man (2008) and the third film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

The film received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the performances and action but deemed it to be inferior to the first film.



Daniel (Age 11) - ★★★★

"Iron man 2 was a good film.

First I really liked the villain in this story.

I thought the build up to the first fight was good and I liked seeing why the villain had his motivations to kill Tony.

I really liked the fight scene at the F1 track and I thought it was a really creative place to have a fight scene.

Overall this as a good film with good characters and great action."

Jan (Age 11) - ★★★★1/2

"I think this film is just as good as the first Iron Man movie! The highlights for me were; Tony Stark in court, Tony making Pepper CEO of Stark Industries, Tony training martial arts with Happy, The Gran Prix in Monaco, Iron Man vs Ivan Vanko, Ivan Vanko's escape from prison, Tony's birthday party, Rhodes taking Iron man's suit, Tony looking at his dad's old things, and the massive fight at the end between Iron Man and Rhodes Vs Ivan Vanko. Overall a great film which I would recommend to anyone who likes DC or Indiana Jones. My only problem with the film was the weird scenes where Ivan makes stuff. 'My Favourite character top 3 of this movie' is;

1. Iron Man/Tony Stark

2. Rhodes

3. Happy

I LOVE Iron Man, I hope whatever movie is next in MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) is going to be just as good!"

There's plenty more of Iron Man in the MCU movies, he features pretty heavily! And his father even shows up in Captain Americ: The First Avenger.

For more brilliant sci-fi action check out the Star Wars movies and Marvel's own Guardians of the Galaxy.
