Robert Downey Jr. returns as billionaire Tony Stark in this thrilling sequel to the worldwide blockbuster. Now that his Super Hero secret has been revealed, Tony's life is more intense than ever. Everyone wants in on the Iron Man technology, whether for power or profit... but for Ivan Vanko ("Whiplash"), it's revenge! Tony must once again suit up , and face his most dangerous enemy yet, but not without a few new allies of his own.
Whilst I loved the first film, this follow up leaves much to be desired and apart from the money I am left wondering what was the point! Robert Downey Jr comes across as arrogant, egotistical, self indulgent, in love with himself not only in his character but in himself. Whilst Mickey Rourke seems to have found himself a new reinvented style that he now plays in every film I've seen him in recently. Without saying anything about the plot, i found this film very bum numbing and forced myself to watch it to the end. If you're a fan of marvel Comic book Heroes, you may love this. But if you're looking for something with a both more depth and teeth, try the first film as it is far superior in every way.

I felt this, as a follow up to the first one, was just very anticlimactic. Something about it just made me think meh. There's some cool effects and CGI but not a great deal else really. Worth watching for completeness.
