I loved the first Iron Man film and unless I’m mistaken (I was mistaken Transformers 1 and 2 was) this is the first sequel where I’ve reviewed both films on my website :D. The second follows on where the first ends, so expect spoilers below if you haven’t seen the first film yet. (If you haven’t, why not? Go and rent the DVD/BluRay now.) The film actually starts with the villain watching the closing scene of the first film, where Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr, who I am quickly becoming a fan of) announces to the world that he is Iron Man, so in this film he has to fight off rival arms manufactures and the government, who want access to his iron man technology, as well as Blacklash/Ivan Vanko who is set on revenge. If you enjoyed the first one I’d recommend you see this one., it might not be as good as the first film, but it definitely gets close.

This film is awesome :D. The story centres around a kid who decides to become a super hero and his interactions with real heroes and villains. This film is hilarious, rude and violent all in equal measure. In fact there are times when your laughing turns to wincing all too quickly. You also have the most charming and most foul mouthed child super hero I’ve ever seen, Hit Girl; this is definitely not Spy Kids. Hit Girl is played by Chloe Moretz who does an amazing job playing the character and works very well with Nicolas Cage’s Big Daddy. There are some hilarious and touching moments between the on screen father and daughter. If you still have any doubts I’ll leave you with the BBFC’s summary: “Contains strong language, once very strong, & strong bloody comic violence”

Bought the BluRay of this last week on the back of all the awards that it has been winning (it has won five Baftas and been nominated for nine oscars at the time of this post). The film follows a bomb disposal unit in Iraq and all that entails. Aery impressive film; visuals, sounds directing and editing were all top notch. The three lead actors, who made up the unit, all put in great perfomances. Definately one to watch if you get the chance.
