We Are S.M.E


One member of SME was fortunate enough to get an invite to a sneak preview of the new Iron Man movie, at the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square last night.

The sequel to the hugely succesful 2008 film sees Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) return as Iron Man.
With the world now aware of his dual life as the armored superhero, Stark faces pressure from the government, the press, and the public to share his technology with the military.
Unwilling to let go of his invention, cheekily declaring he has ‘succesffuly privatised world peace’, Stark, along with Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, must forge new alliances and confront powerful enemies.

Downey Jr puts in another great performance; with endless wit and one liners, Stark is as charming as ever.
A massive mention also for Mikey Rourke (above) who was the stand out performer for SME. He played the demented Russian inventor Ivan Vanko brilliantly and gave this film an edge. Convincingly twisted and scary, it made for the perfect bad guy.
If only he had been given more screen time and put up more of a fight at the end, but lets not go into that as we don’t want to spoil it for you!
Oh and not to forget Scarlett Johansson (below) – boom!

Sadly it’s not as good as the first, but then again arent sequels always a bit of a disappointment?
Like the Iron Man suit it was sleek and shiny but lacking somewhat in action, which is a real shame as the characters are played very well.

It’s definitely still worth watching and I’m sure it will shoot straight to number one in the box office, just like the official soundtrack from A/C D/C which hit Number One in the UK albums chart on Sunday.

‘Iron Man 2 – Official Soundtrack’, a career-spanning compilation of 15 songs, is the veteran rockers’ third UK Number One album following ‘Back In Black’ in 1980 and 2008’s ‘Black Ice’.

We hope you enjoy at least one of the two! x
