Iron Man 2 - Grading & Discussion Thread (spoilers guaranteed)

I saw the movie earlier today.
I enjoyed it, perhaps even more than the first one (I'll need a couple more viewings though)
Good performances all around and quite funny with some great lines.

The fight scenes were also very good.
However, it didn't have enough Iron Man in it for a second Iron Man film. Especially with the origin and introductions out of the way.
And the Final Battle with Whiplash still suffered. Far too quick and easy.

And of course I can not help but mention Scarlett Johansson. Simply magnificent...
The very definition of sexy, no matter if she was rocking business wear or kicking ass in spy gear.

I disagree on no particular account. I did enjoy it just as much if not more than the first one, which was surprising seeing as all the trailers for this film left me rather flat and made it look far more boring than it really was.

If the other Avenger films keep up the pace set by Iron Man 2, were in for an exciting couple of years.

With the movie opening globally in some places and sneak advance showings in others its time for this thread as recommended by Hyperspace05 in the Build Up Till Release thread.

Enjoyable film. Thought that Downey Jr was brilliant, as was all of the cast, but thought Rockwell had some great lines. 7 out of 10.

Cool movie overall. A little bit slow in the middle. RDJ just owned every scene he was in. The cast overall was pretty great. The whole SHIELD organization felt a little out of place from the rest of the movie. Their operatives felt a little more "comic bookey" than the rest of the movie. Scarlett Johansson was a good addition to the cast although some of her posing during her fight scenes was a tad weird.

Thumbs up for Iron Man 2!

SPOILER CODES not necessary but appreciated, if your someone wanting to avoid any cursory spoilerage best stay away till after you've seen the film.

Also, stay after the credits Mutenroshi has said there is a scene.

Grades are insufficient to rate the movie IMO. I think I'd vote like the first movie, i.e. A-.
Above average does not do justice to the movie.
Entertaining story, strong cast and ahem, awesome soundtrack (wink wink, nudge nudge) except one almost blasphemous error: it was written in the end credits that Brian Johnson co-wrote Highway To Hell. WRONG!!!!!!!!!!1! 'twas Bon Scott!

Many, many, many Marvel-U hints, making this fan satisfied.

Come Thor, come Captain America, come The Avengers. I can't wait!

I take it you guys saw at a pre-screening or something? Because it doesn't come out for another week.
