DVD: Iron Man 2
In this inevitable sequel to the highly profitable Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr and Gwyneth Paltrow are back, and Terrence Howard has been replaced with Don Cheadle. The new villain (replacing Jeff Bridges) is played by Mickey Rourke. The best thing about the film, though, is the performance of Sam Rockwell: always watchable, he’s in great form here.
There are a number of scenes that are quite funny, and the usual long sections of “robots hitting each other” are visually interesting enough. If you enjoyed the first one, this is a good “popcorn movie”.
