It fulfilled all of my expectations. The only thing I worry about is that they may be setting expectations for the Avengers movie too high. How can it possibly live up to the standard these movies are setting and setting up??? Iron Man 2 is EVERYTHING you would want in a movie and much more! It is a special treat when a sequel reaches up and delivers an excellent film that you enjoy as much as a beloved first installment. It truly feels like they just paused and kept telling the same story but with more of an edge.

I, for one, enjoyed Iron Man 2, but I'm not fussy about all the setup for The Avengers. The fact that Iron Man is much more of a standalone movie helps it succeed more in my eyes. And, indeed, that's part of why I like The Dark Knight better; it is a sequel, it opens up the world, but it can exist as its own story, too.

Iron Man 2 was enjoyable, but it was surprisingly light on action for an "action" movie, and it couldn't match the original. It did have a better villain, I'll give it that.

And, indeed, it is definitely a good comic book movie. In a genre that is very uneven at times, it did succeed on that front.

A bland, dumb-as-bricks film from start to finish. Uninteresting, cliche villains, shoehorned attempts at sentimentality and one of the dumbest plot twists in the history of cinema (element in the diorama) make this a failed attempt by marvel to get me invested in any follow up films.

Agreed, complete sell-out. The "it's a set-up for the Avengers, not a stand-alone" argument doesn't cut it here; if it did, then how come Iron Man and Captain America never jumped the shark?!

To this movie’s credit, they never assumed that the advertising or hype or even the look alone was good enough to take shortcuts. Without question, the makers of this movie went all the way in making it a satisfying experience for not just the fans but for the uninitiated as well. It’s an intelligent movie that actually works way above the level set up by other previous comic adaptations.

Crap. Not even on the same planet of quality that the first one was on.

Yes, this movie was a big disappointment, but it's not like it was disastrously bad or anything. That said, I do hope Iron Man 3 puts this franchise back on the right track.
