Mano-A-Mano: Iron Man vs. Whiplash (Iron Man 2)

This is arguably the best scene of the movie; I mean how do you get Mickey Rourke to play an awesome villain like this and then totally under use him? Anyway, the scene takes place at the Monaco Grand Prix where Tony Stark is enjoying his vacation, which is rudely interrupted by Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke) and his frankly awesome electrical whips powered by a new arc reactor.

Stark desperately tries to defend himself against the onslaught until Pepper Potts and Happy Hogan can deliver his Iron Man suit (in suitcase form). After nearly getting defeated by Ivan Vanko, Stark is thrown his suit, the epic hero music plays and Iron Man brings  the pain to Vanko leaving him in a smouldering heap on the ground.

This is only a temporary victory however as Stark learns that Vanko is the son of his father’s old partner, Anton Vanko, who had collaborated with Howard Stark on the first arc reactor. Anton was deported to his native Soviet Union following attempts to profit from the technology and died in poverty, explaining Vanko’s desire for revenge on the Stark family. The fight in Monaco is only the beginning…

Check out the full fight scene below.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
