I really liked Iron Man - they did it real justice but this is one of those sequels that seems to have been made just to cash in on the franchise.

The film culminates in a battle between Iron Man and Micky Rourke as a Russian seeking revenge (for what exactly? his father being discredited?) but this probably only takes up about 20% of the film. The rest is just filler.

Oh, woe is Iron Man and his energy thing not working properly so lets make that the source of the film and watch as he self-destructs. It's all a bit boring.

Where Iron Man 1 gave us a hero with a cool suit and gadgets that we saw being built and used and it was fun, this lacks on almost all of those.

If they make a third I hope they read this review first.

I will avoid reviewing the film here as some people do simply because its the product and not the film i want to comment on. I like the film enough to buy the DVD so that really should be enough in itself.

Like many who have reviewed this already i bought the special edition for the fact it was the special edition and at least expected there to be a 'making of' feature on the one of the TWO discs... how mistaken i was. The previous films special edition, or Ultimate Edition as it was called, there is nearly four times as much extra stuff spread out over the two discs. In fact nearly all of what is stretched over this two disc 'special' could be placed on one disc.

I can't help but feel cheated in some respects and think that the creation of this edition was simply done to make people part with their cash for the promise of more... which sadly isn't there. The extra disc seems to literally be that, a disc added to the box to give the appearance of value for money as there is no difference between the standard editions movie disc and that of the specials!

The smart thing here, if you want to simply own the film, is to buy the cheaper, standard edition which is just movie disc.

I really enjoyed the first film and had high expectations for this film, it has a great cast and bigger budget following the success of the first film...and although I enjoyed it I feel it lost a little of it's soul. I do recommend watching the film and I'm looking forward to the potential spin off's and sequals. I do strongly recommend buying the triple play, I do not yet have a blu-ray play or high def television and I'm planning on upgrading, so by buying the Triple play I can see the up to date films while building my blu-ray collection for the future.....and the cost between the DVD 2 disc version and this was less then 1.00. I hope this helps.

for sheer entertainment value the score must it's a '5' as a sequel a '4'
This time 'Iron-Man' (Robert Downey Jr) is under threat from a 'Russian' seeking revenge against 'Stark Industries'
You only have to look at the cast list to know top-line actors want involvement in this popular 'Marvel' characters movies.
Which includes - 'Gwyneth Paltrow' (Pepper Potts) 'Scarlett Johansson' (Natasha Romanoff) 'Mickey Rourke (Ivan Vanko)
and 'Samuel L Jackson' (Nick Fury) to name just a few of the great names on-board.
It's got plenty of great 'cgi' action sequences that are complimented by this format.
The film is a must-see for all 'Marvel Comic' fans along with those who just want ---top-line entertainment.

A very good action follow on to Iron man one. Robert downey Jr is as good as ever as Tony Stark.

I am always nervous about sequels, but boy did this deliver.
The story builds on the original film whilst maintaining the humour and energy that was delivered with the original film.
Robert Downey Jr does a superb job of developing the Tony Stark character, whilst Don Cheadle and Mickey Rourke help elevate this film above the pedestrian!

I won't go into the story as many reviews deal with that, but let's cover the blu-ray disc. The picture quality is superb and the level of detail is very high, it's easy to forget that you are watching special effects. The sound was superb and really tested my home cinema system.
And as for the digital copy, this is good quality too, and when watched on my iPad looked very good.

I think the combination of blu-Ray, DVD and digital copy makes this disc set pretty good value.

All in all, if you enjoyed the first film or are a Marvel comics fan then I recommend you give this a go.

Sequel to Iron Man [DVD] [2008] which saw Robert Downey Jr bring the comic book superhero Tony Stark to life on the big screen. Billionaire inventor playboy industrialist with super suit at his disposal. This sequel doesn't make any concessions to those who didn't see the original, but you probably wouldn't have much trouble getting into this if you haven't.

Iron Man Two considers the consequences of Tony's actions from the first fim. Life is going great for him. Everybody seemingly loves his alter ego. He's now hosting a huge technology fair like the world's fairs of old.

But enemies lurk in the wings. A russian with a grudge because of the actions of Tony's father. Another industrialist who would like to be Tony. And the military would like to get their hands on the Iron Man suits so they can build ones of their own.

Meantime, secret service agency S.H.I.E.L.D. and their director Nick Fury [who you'll only be familiar with film wise if you saw the scene after the credits in the original] regard Tony as a loose cannon and are keeping an eye on him. And following his assistant getting a promotion Tony now has a new assistant, who's surprisingly capable at a great many things not least unarmed combat. Could there be more than her than meets the eye?

Oh, and Tony has health problems he's not telling anyone about either.

Can he get past all those problems and emerge triumphant once again?

This is well played and well directed. Like the first film everyone plays it straight and treats the subject matter as grown up character drama. The role of Jim Rhodes from the first film has been recast, but you might not notice.
