Iron Man 2 gets rusty with the critics
After much anticipation, the unstoppable, glorious, and record-breaking Iron Man has finally showed its sequel as its premiered in El Capitan Theater, Hollywood, California on Monday night.
The producers of Iron Man 2 are certainly no strangers to pulling out all the stops in live entertainment. It is no wonder why the premiere would be less of a spectacle to watch. Robert Downey Jr., who plays the rich, flamboyant, and over the top lead character Tony Starks, came in driving an Audi as he was welcomed by sexy cheerleaders called “Ironettes”, screaming fans, and multiple camera flashes from the media.
Unfortunately, like Tony Starks’ character, the popularity of Iron Man 2 did not stay peachy as some critics had lackluster comments for the movie.
The Hollywood Reporter Kirk Honeycutt has deemed the movie as: “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.”
NME Online has regarded the film: “It what must be a first for a comic book adaptation, it puts words ahead of the action.”
The Daily Mirror says: “Iron Man 2 is a travesty–a mind numbingly dull, chaotic, and often unwatchable muddle. It might be the ultimate masterclass in how not to make a movie.”
