Just another thought, I think it also suffered being one of those films where "if you've seen the trailer you've seen the film"

The Concorde has been out of service for years.

Strange that this movie is released in Europe before in America, given that it's an American movie, featuring American actors and based on an American comic book chatacter.

Seriously, what kind of crap is that?
Seems like total crap to me!

It's not often that I get a Friday night off. I would have loved to go see this tonight. I guarantee I won't be able to next weekend.

It's been out for 2 days & the weekend is just beginning.
Isn't it a bit early to be judging if it's suffered from anything or not ?

I don't think he means it suffered in the box office. I think he means the story suffered because the previews gave too much away.

I have a feeling this is one movie where we won't have to worry about how much money it makes.

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

I really enjoyed it. Good action, good story, some funny moments.

I've seen a few complaints here and there that Iron Man wasnt in it enough. The problem I have with that is that both this and the first film go out of their way to make it abundantely clear that Iron Man IS Tony Stark. So a film that features Tony Stark is a film that features Iron Man whether in suit or not. Was the suit itself seen enough in this film? Maybe, maybe not, but in my opinion, the appearance of the suit, or lack of it, doesnt detract from the film at all.

... Why?
I can't speak for all countries but in Belgium and France, premieres happen on Wednesday. So I can understand they'd rather make the US wait 2 days than let us wait 5 days. It's the best compromise. And it's been happening for plenty of movies for a few years now.

It was okay, not great but okay.

Johansson's character seemed pretty much pointless. Paltrow could have done with more time on screen. If you hadn't seen the first one for a while you could easily forget that she is actually more than just a PA to Stark.

Question: Why doesn't Iron Man have a weapon he can fire when he's flying? Seems a bit odd not to have one.

I was about to say I didn't see Stan Lee in the movie but just checked and didn't realise he was Larry King.

I loved the first one. I thought this was good, but not quite as good as the first.

It could have done with more Iron Man though.

Thought it was garbage. Last 15 minutes was good.

Nearly left half way through I was so bored.

It kinda seemed like "a sequel just for the sake of making a sequel", rather than actually having some decent ideas and giving us something fresh and new

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

i loved it. i was slightly surprised by Whiplash's armour suit at the end since Fav was quoted saying you 'couldn't have just another Rock'em Sock'em Robots final fight.

laughed a fucking lot though.

loved how Happy was so please he beat that ONE guy and then sees Natasha's smacked down a dozen. loved WM and IM fighting the drones.

loved the fact Tony said to Rhodey about being a 'war machine' after he put the mkII suit on and how Hammer referred to the gunned-up suit as the 'Variable Threat Response battle-suit' - the original name for the WM armour.

and of course, the end scene was awesome.
