More Info:
  • Joe Neumaier

    Iron Man 2 sets gold standard for sequels thanks to Robert Downey Jr.'s Stark performance.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Favreau supplies the go-go-go that makes the movie stratospherically entertaining, even without 3-D. But it's the promiscuously talented Downey who adds the grace notes that make Iron Man 2 something to remember.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    A polished, high-ozone sequel, not as good as the original but building once again on a quirky performance by Robert Downey Jr.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    At its best, it's shaggily enjoyable and enjoyably shaggy. It's like steroids on steroids with Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, disarming arms industrialist, tossing off one-liners like comic grenades.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It's difficult to say whether the main problem with Iron Man 2 is that it suffers from too much plot or too little.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Nick Starkey

    Like the original, Iron Man 2 is a good time from start to finish.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    A movie franchise can only take us by surprise once, and by that measure, Iron Man 2 is a preordained letdown. But so much of what gave the first film its gas — is still here.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Sara Vilkomerson

    It is all very-very-very entertaining.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    The primary challenge for all blockbuster franchises is to be big yet fleet. Iron Man is as good as model as any, thanks largely to Robert Downey Jr.’s flamboyantly narcissistic Tony Stark and filmmakers that valued pacing and character as much as superhero hardware.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Bigger, louder and dumber than its predecessor, Iron Man 2 is still a lot of fun.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    Fans of the first will not be bored. This Iron Man may not be the Godfather II of comic book movie sequels critics hope for but it is a complete blast anyway.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It doesn’t come close to the emotional heft of those two rare 2s that outclassed their ones: Superman 2 and Spider-Man 2. But Iron Man 2 hums along quite nicely.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    To find a comic-book hero who doesn’t agonize over his supergifts, and would defend his constitutional right to get a kick out of them, is frankly a relief.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Only a shadow -- if an agreeable and harmless one -- of its predecessor film.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    It's as slick and fun as summertime entertainment should be. Downey is still an arresting presence, glib to the nth degree and supremely confident that he's smarter than anyone else.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Aside from these two actors (Downey/Rourke), Iron Man 2 isn’t much of a whoop-de-do.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The big problem with Iron Man 2, maybe, is that it so dutifully gives the people what they want, instead of giving them what they didn’t know they wanted.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    A movie like this can handle a large character roster, but it helps if the story retains clean lines and a sense of propulsion. Iron Man 2 sags and wanders in its midsection

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The action sequences are fun, though not as exhilarating as in the 2008 original, and the dialogue can be zingy.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Robert Downey Jr. looks as hung over in Iron Man 2 as he seemed drunk in “Iron Man.’’ He does his share of drinking this time, too. And the sequel makes more out of his insobriety. It has an early stretch where it fizzes and slurs, with the stars stepping on each other’s lines and feet. The movie feels drunk, too.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    Rourke and Rockwell make satisfying, complementary villains, while Downey Jr. delivers again. Shame this sequel feels inessential, over-busy and a little, well, mechanical. Nothing they can’t put right for Iron Man 3.

    Empire Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Isn't as much fun as its predecessor, but by the time the smoke clears, it'll do.

    Variety Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Downey's head and heart are in the right place, but the movie is more in pieces than whole, and more about iron than about men.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The main problem with Iron Man 2 lies in the script.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    It’s only fitfully entertaining as an all-star indie team led again by director Jon Favreau, who gets swallowed up by the same sort of overproduced overkill as “Spider Man 3.”

    New York Post Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    A better-than-average follow-up, but Tony doesn't suit up enough.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    "Everything is achievable through technology," a character says more than once in Iron Man 2. Not so.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    With seemingly twice as much action, a whole new complex of villainy, competing Iron Man suits, robots and love interests, Iron Man 2 sequel cashes in hard on the unexpected success of the first Iron Man from 2007 and somehow loses much of its soul in the process.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Although it's stuffed with subplots, gadgets and bad guys, this tinny contraption is half-hearted.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Despite its high tech sheen and overstuffed cast of characters, played by some of the best actors in the land, this mega-mecha melee manages to give short shrift to both the airborne action set-pieces that define Iron Man's zoomy panache and incoming supervillain Whiplash, aka Ivan Vanko (Rourke).

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Yes, yes, yes, Downey is blasé, intelligent and hilarious as Tony Stark -- what do you expect me to say? -- but I'm convinced that sticking with this character much longer won't be good for him. Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    As sequels go, this one is acceptable, nothing more, nothing less.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    You’re left wanting more, but not quite the “more” Iron Man 2 works so hard to supply.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    It's beyond absurd that the makers of superhero movies haven't grasped this yet: When an actor's body and face aren't visible beneath a costume, it could be anyone under there. Casting the likes of Downey and Rourke and then imprisoning them in jointed refrigerators is resource-squandering of the highest order.

    Slate Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    He (Tony) could be a self-destructive hero out of a Dostoyevsky or Mailer novel. That portrait gives Iron Man 2 its fascination. The rest is a cluttered, clattering toy story.

    Time Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Intimacy has vanished from the relationship between Tony and Pepper, and grace has been stricken from the movie as a whole.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    The first third is terrific...After that the movie settles into a series of ho-hum conflicts and complications, and the requisite slam-bang ending is perfunctory at best.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    With this depressingly bland sequel (scripted by snark specialist Justin Theroux), he’s (Robert Downey Jr.) stranded in lightweight arrogance.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    The elements that made the first Iron Man a rather likable blockbuster have not entirely evaporated. Favreau brings together interesting American movie stars and lets them actually play through scenes.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Well, that didn't take long. Everything fun and terrific about "Iron Man," a mere two years ago, has vanished with its sequel. In its place, Iron Man 2 has substituted noise, confusion, multiple villains, irrelevant stunts and misguided story lines.
