Iron Man 2: A Rocky III Rip-Off?


Nothing is more fascinating than a vast rip-off conspiracy, which is definitely the way to classify the marvelous parallels drawn today between Iron Man 2 and Rocky III. Successful, wealthy men gone complacent? Check. Formidable, blind-siding enemies? Check? Good-vs.-evil preparation montages? Check, right down to the villain's solitude. And so on. If it weren't for the key difference that Talia Shire did all her own stunts, someone might have a lawsuit on their hands. [Moviefone]

    That's nothing, the Captain America movie is an outright shot-for-shot remake of Rocky IV, replete with montages galore and Rud Skull clamoring "I Must Break You" to Chris Evans!

    I'll believe it when I see the homo-bro-erotic scene of them hugging and jumping together in the surf.

  • Robert Pattinson's clone says:

    Wow! You are right, Iron Man 2 is a shot for shot remake of Rocky III. You forgot to mention both of them are in English and that neither one contains talking animals! Will the parallels ever cease????

    if you think thats bad think of pursuit of happiness with will smith a total rip off rocky II, in both movies the main charachters start of not bad off, Rocky with the advertising contracts and fight money, Will smith with his medical equipment, and both lose their chance as Rocky can act so he doesnt get paid and Will's equipment is an accessory and not a necessity, and so he gets stuck selling them. through the movie both decline in to a poor status Rocky gives his car and gets the job at the meat factory which later he gets redunded and Will becomes homeless, bith see the one opportunity and their grab and fight/study for it, Rocky rematch Will being the top student, and in the end both come out on top, there are more resembles but i just can be bothered mentioning all of them.

    Is Vanairsdale that desparate for material or did someone else actually raise the copycat issue?
