“Iron Man 2” that Hollywood hopes will start a lucrative summer movie on Friday, but many American critics feel the long-awaited sequel does not have the punch of its predecessor-super hero.
Actor Robert Downey Jr. dons the costume of high technology once again to fight against the nature of evil that has contributed to “Iron Man” to earn $ 585 million in worldwide box office in 2008. Most critics agreed that Downey Jr’s performance as a selfish billionaire Tony Stark has helped to overcome the shortcomings of bigger, more noisy film is pretty good but not better than the original.
“This is the jumble Downey talent that adds grace notes that do something Iron Man 2” remember, “said Peter Travers of Rolling Stone. The film, which opened a week ago outside a high of $ 100.2 million at the box office, obtained a rate of 64 per cent approval rating on rottentomatoes.com film aggregator.
Hollywood Reporter reviewer Kirk Honeycutt said the element of fun that made the 2008 original so terrible had gone into its second output. “In its place,” Iron Man 2 “has replaced the noise, confusion, many villains, stunts and stories unimportant wrong,” said Honeycutt.
Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan echoed a widespread view when he commented, “As suites go, it is acceptable, nothing more, nothing less.”
But Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic turned into a much more gentle, giving the film three and half stars out of 5 and to call it, “Bigger, more and more stupid than its predecessor,” Iron Man 2 “is still a lot of fun.”
While Tom Long to the Detroit News estimated there are too many new characters, crossing the lines of history, not romantic enough, he said, “Who cares?” Iron Man 2 ‘still rocks.”
Yet for many films promoted action primarily young, male audience, rarely mentioned, and the film is considered raking in the cash over the weekend to come.
“Iron Man 2” is expected to more than 120 million dollars during the opening in the U.S. and Canada this weekend. He launched four months of movies featuring some of the summer’s biggest stars of the industry that Hollywood studios hope to make $ 4 billion at the box office in North America.
