"Iron Man 2, as a whole, is a great summer blockbuster. It has been reviewed negatively by other critics because unfortunately Iron Man 2 does not provide that same “wow” factor that its predecessor offered. However, I think it is unfair to expect the same from Iron Man 2. It had ridiculous expectations to live up to, and although it may not provide the same in depth character study of Tony Stark that the first one did, I believe it doesn’t have to. The audience knows who the character is now and all they really want is an enjoyable summer movie that makes them laugh and has some great action scenes. This is probably why the crowds of both screenings I want to all praised the movie. We understand that this is not going to be the next Godfather, but we don’t want it to be. It is a hilarious action packed ride that wont’ disappoint you if you approach it for its fun factor."
