Iron Man 2 Will Be Disappointing
When the first Iron Man movie hit theaters it came out of no where. A second tier comic book character that only comic book guys knew. There were no expectations and the movie had few flaws so it brought in tons of money and everyone (except my roommate who fell asleep while watching it) loved it. It was the best comic book movie of the year. Way better then The Dark Knight.
Today everyone knows Iron Man and everyone expects Iron Man 2 to be one of the, if not THE best movie of the year. I had hopes it could live up to expectations but not after watching the trailer.
There are too many new characters.
Not only is there a new villain, Whiplash, there is some new business opponent played by Sam Rockwell, there is some chick in a skin tight leather suit (I have no idea if she is a good girl or a bad girl I just know there is no way she can be comfortable in that outfit), and then there is War Machine.
Yes, Rhodey was in the first movie but now that he’s got his own suit he becomes a significantly more important character.
There is no way there is going to be enough antagonism in this movie to warrant two super hero suits.
There is no way they will have enough satisfying character development with all these major characters.
There is no way Iron Man 2 will live up to the hype.
But I hope I’m wrong.
Robin Hood Will Be Dumb
There are too many movie cliches in the trailer for this to be any good. Plus, Riddly Scott is still using Gladiator as his bragging movie and it’s time for him to move on. Just because you win one Oscar doesn’t mean you can brag about it in every movie trailer you make for the rest of your life. What do they think that accomplishes?
“Hey, that movie is directed by the guy who directed Gladiator. That must mean that movie is going to rock. I’m going to lower all of my standards and tweet to everyone that they need to watch this movie immediately.”
I’m not falling for it.
