Iron Bum (a movie review).

Well, what do I need to say? Hmm, the movie was a box office hit of boredom and a boring clash of neat but predictable CGI effects and visuals. For the first half of the movie, I was constantly interrupted by my own yawns. As usual, Tony Stark was still a major kickback with his witty remarks and Pepper Potts' verbal batting stints, which made these two a sought-after tandem (or at least in this film).

I totally forgot what the first half of the movie was all about. All I know was that there were this one these two guys who annoyed me. Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) who was more than willing to try all the sinister plans he could device to outsmart and outshine Stark. Gosh, this kind of people really exist, even in movies like this. The other one, the guy sitting beside me. If he wanted to text someone, at least he should do it outside, or better, not use the phone anymore. The backlight's glare killed my eyes, and my mood.

Maybe my mind was still clouded by the movie's predecessor, that's why it didn't give a kick. I can assure you though that the fast cars, kick-ass Black Widow (Scarlett J.), the A-list weapon drones and M. Rourke's annoying slash barely audible slash vague languages (both English and Russian) would not render your tickets or money useless.

Before I went inside the cinema, I overheard these two ladies talking.
Lady 1: Oi san ba tayo? Losers ba tayo?
Lady 2: Oo, Losers tayo. Maganda yun.(Natawa ako.)
Lady 1: Sabi ng friend ko hardcore daw yung Losers.
Lady 2: Ganun ba? Dapat Losers na tayo.
Lady 1: Iron Man pinanood ng kapatid ko kanina. Doon na lang tayo. (At dun ko pa nalaman, The Losers pala na movie. lol)

Tata!

hi mj! thanks for the review. ako, ayoko ng ironman. i also did not like the first one. the visual effects are state of the art but it does not solely rely on that to make a movie a good one. parang kulang kc story eh. i'm waiting for the prince of persia and sex and the city. I'll be saving up money to watch both of those films. cheerz!

Well, about Iron Man II, di ko pa siya actually napapanood. Kaya wala pa akong right para i-judge yung movie. Umm, complete crap ba talaga yung movie? need ko ba siyang panoorin in cinema or abangan ko na lang sa pirated dvds? lolz XD

as a fanboy, just seeing war machine, nick fury, capt. america's shield, and thor's hammer at the end of credits, is enough to keep me glued and excited for the future installments, esp. the avengers movie.

yeah it was flawed with potholes, esp. the final fight scene. but hey, this ain't an oscar-worthy film at the start. it's a comic book-film.^^
