  • More ‘Iron Man’ is better

    “Iron Man” was a bit of a surprise for me when it came out in 2008.  I’ve always been more of an X-Men and Batman fan, so I went to check it out with fairly low expectations.  When I walked out of the theater I had become a fan of Tony Stark. The first movie had plenty of action, wit and fun. Most importantly, “Iron Man” was a film that featured a near-perfect performance from Robert Downey Jr. and it was a film that didn’t take itself too seriously. I’m happy to say that all of the above applies to “Iron Man 2.”
