Iron Man 2 Movie Review
Tony Stark reveals his secret identity as Iron Man and the whole world wants a piece of him! Find out how Iron Man matches up against new foes in Kidzworld’s movie review of Iron Man 2!
While Tony Stark has been enjoying fame as Iron Man, Ivan Vanko, a Russian ex-convict and physicist, has been toiling away on a powerful suit of his own. Years before, Vanko was betrayed by Stark’s father, the founder of Stark Industries. Now Vanko wants revenge on Stark Industries.

Vanko designs an impressive metal exoskeleton with thrashing electric whips whose strength rivals Iron Man’s own. Vanko aka Whiplash confronts Stark for the first time in Monaco where Stark is racing in the Grand Prix. Caught without his Iron Man suit, Stark is left defenseless and humiliated.
Old Friends New Foes
Meanwhile, the government wants to use Stark’s metal suit technology to create an army of Iron Men, but Stark doesn’t want to share his secrets. Hammer, a rival arms dealer, threatens to steal Stark’s thunder with some metal suits of his own. Hammer makes a deal with Vanko and Whiplash scores an army of Iron Man drones!
As if Whiplash isn’t enough, Iron Man also has to contend with his old friend Lt. Colonel Rhodes. Rhodes disagrees with Stark so much that he snags his own metal suit to show Stark how to do it right! Not to mention Stark’s flirty new assistant (played by Scarlett Johansson) who might be more trouble than she’s worth.
The Bottom Line
Iron Man 2 brings back the fun banter and explosive effects that made the original such a hit. The countless villains and multiple storylines can get a bit confusing, but the charismatic cast (especially Robert Downey Jr.) keeps Iron Man 2 from becoming another mindless blockbuster. Don't miss this one!
