Iron Man 2

Rated PG-13 125 min. 2010



In the summer's first tentpole release, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) dons sunglasses and blows dismissive kisses at a Congressional committee bent on bullying him into relinquishing his ferrous-plated super suit. "I am Iron Man; Iron Man is me," he declares. It may as well be Downey himself making that claim, for it is nearly impossible to imagine anyone other than Downey in this role. The first Iron Man's levity rested with Downey's bravura performance and director Jon Favreau's fanboy sensibilities. What's different this time out is the screenwriting is handled by seemingly kindred spirit Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder) rather than Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (best known for Children of Men), a decision that may have enabled the sequel's flaws. The original film was a popcorn movie that dared to succeed during an era of brooding movie heroism. Its sequel suffers not only by comparison but also due to its strained efforts to please an audience now hip to its hipness.
