No. 12: Iron Man 2



There wasn't much good about this movie. Jon Favreau, who directed the brilliant Iron Man, directed again and yet couldn't live up to the success of his first creation.

With two villains in this one Whiplash (Mickey Rourke) and Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell), both of them seemed flat and downright terrible. Whiplash, who was barely in it, was horribly portrayed by Rourke and died easily, no contest. Hammer was better for sure, he was portrayed just as he is in the comic books. He was a dumber and less charismatic version of Tony Stark, but the script for the character gave him nowhere to go in the movie. Perhaps the only good thing about this movie was the introduction to Black Widow, because we all know the next movie she ended up in (Avengers just in case you didn't know). Not even another great portrayal of Tony Stark by Robert Downey Jr. could propel this movie.

This movie wasn't without its strong moments though. Seeing Tony use his scientific mind to try and save his life was a clutch scene. We just wish there had been more of them.
