Tony stark is back, and this is the review you have been waiting for. The world now knows that Tony Stark is the metal costumed superhero crime fighter. The government want the suits technology however tony constantly tells them that he can’t have it. The government are not the only ones that are after the Iron Man though. Bad guys played by Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke are soon on the case wanting to shelve Iron Man for good.
Sequels of movie franchises are seldom the best and often fizzle or bang for all the wrong reasons. Fans of the first movie or comic book to movie fans can rest assured however as Iron Man 2 is much better than the original. There is something in this movie for everyone. There’s action and plenty of it, just as you would expect from a superhero movie. The comedy levels are amped up this time around with Robert Downey Jr being allowed to flex his charisma and charm at every turn. There is also a lot more eye candy this time around, with the introduction of Scarlett Johansson, need I say any more?
Iron Man 2 is one of the better superhero movies to have it our screens, however it is still going to be compared to the Dark knight and sadly Iron Man 2 can’t compete with the dark and brooding superhero from Gotham, however in my opinion they can’t be compared as they are two completely different types of movies. The Dark Knight is more of a serious superhero movie where as Iron Man 2 is a more family friendly movie experience.
If vampire/romance movies are made for teenage girls and zombie/horror movies are made for teenage guys, then Warm Bodies is the crossover movie. Yes, Warm Bodies, the Zombieland-style horror/love story by writer/director Jonathan Levine. This is Levine’s followup to his 2011 cancer dramedy and critical hit 50/50, but it’s a much different film, and pretty decent for what it tries to do.
I went to see it with a friend on a Tuesday afternoon. Suffice it to say, the theater was near-empty except for a young couple seated directly in the middle. From the opening scene in Warm Bodies, I must admit I was a little annoyed by the film’s overly-sarcastic style of humor. It’s just not my thing. However, the one lady in the theater seemed to enjoy it. So there’s that.
That’s not to say the film isn’t well made; it is. Especially in its direction and cinematography. At first, I felt that some of the logic behind the character’s choices and what they were able to do in this zombie-infested post-apocalyptic world gave way to a few “yeah right” moments. Then I stopped and realized I’m watching a movie about people living in a zombie-infested post-apocalyptic world. Suspend all disbelief, check.
Robin Hood Pandey aka Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) is one crazy cop you don’t want to cross paths with. Pandeyji doesn’t care about the law or the poor or the rich or even himself as long as he gets to kick the bad guys, crack jokes and make oodles of money on the side. His life is all about loving his mother (Dimple Kapadia), hating his step father (Vinod Khanna) and avoiding his dumb half brother Makhi (Arbaaz Khan). Pandey falls in love with Rajjo (Sonakshi Sinha), a local potter woman but she doesn’t reciprocate her feelings as openly as her fearless or ‘dabangg’ suitor and tells him in no uncertain terms that she can’t marry him as long as her drunkard father (Mahesh Manjrekar) lives. While Pandey woos Rajo he incurs the wrath of Cheddi Singh (Sonu Sood), the rising local politician who takes it upon himself to destroy Pandey’s life. The sudden death of Pandey’s mother severs his familial ties and Cheddi uses this opportunity to pit Makhi against his own brother. What Cheddi doesn’t realize is that the bond between the brothers might be stronger than what is seems.
