Iron Man 2 Movie Review


Went to see Iron Man 2 last week. Take one spoonful of Fantastic Four light heartedness and add two spoonfuls of Spiderman angst. Throw in a bar of soap and a bunch of high grade special effects and you are done.

The movie wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t that great either. The first one seemed to have more of a plot than this one, which had a whole saggy lump in the middle where our hero has an “end-life crisis”. I can’t fault the acting, Robert Downey JR is very watchable in the title role, but I would really have liked a little bit more than one robot fighting another robot (or bunch of robots). If you like superhero films you won’t be disappointed, but I don’t think you’ll be that overwhelmed either.
