Iron Man 2!! (2010)

Directed by: Jon Favreau
Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson

Synopsis: Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster film based on the legendary Marvel Super Hero “Iron Man,” reuniting director Jon Favreau and Oscar nominee Robert Downey Jr. In “Iron Man 2,” the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored Super Hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.

Great-great-great. So I just saw that movie in the cinema and I still like. It had great action scenes, awesomely directed choreography and nice special effects. The story itself was also good, but the character IVAN didn't get enough screen time, like in the end he was taken out way too easily, I was hoping for a great 1on1 fight, while iron hide is trouble or something. Also you will get a treat, cuz Samuel L. Jackson also appears in the movie, as a bad ass Secret Agent. In all that action, you also get a few laughs in between. Fina verdict?? Watch it, even when you Haven't seen the first, but.. the first was a bit better. Main reason?? The story itself was a bit better.
Kick Ass (2010)

Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
Starring: Aaron Johnson, Nicolas Cage, Chloe Mortez, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Mark Strong
Synopsis: Mark Millar's violent comic tale of wannabe superheroes is adapted by writer-director Matthew Vaughn with this Marv Films production. Aaron Johnson stars as a teen who steps out of his house one day with a mask and a painted baseball bat and starts to fight crime even though he has no superpowers. Lyndsy Fonseca co-stars as the character's object of desire, with Nicolas Cage also appearing as an ex-cop whose hatred of a drug lord forces him to train his daughter to be a lethal vigilante.

Sounds cool? Well it is. For at least most people. It has a lot of violence, gore and blood, that's why a lot of people don't like it. It's a comic book adaption what do you expect??? Daisies
and little puppies? despite the violence and the little girl killing grown men with katanas and under weapons this movie is cool. It has this little crazy humor that I enjoy (sadly most people don't get it) cool fighting/shooting scene's and that Japanese music when she kills them. It's magical. It almost makes you feel that you can also be a super hero. Nice performance from Cage also, the usual, a little sloppy but still good. I recommend you watch it, unless your fainthearted or your a pussy. what else can you want from a movie?
