Sequel To Story About Man In Metal Suit Lacks Luster Of Previous Installment

Look how arty!

I actually enjoyed Iron Man. I mean, it wasn’t anything earth-shattering, but there was something that made it more than just another big dumb superhero movie. I think it probably had to do with Robert Downey Jr and Jeff Bridges’ refusal to take it all too seriously? This early review of Iron Man 2 suggests that the sequel is, in fact, bigger and dumber, if still enjoyable. I doubt that I’m gonna rush right out to see it, because, you know, Babies opens the same day and I’ll be in the front row, but I guess it’s good to know that it’s not the worst option out there. Sadly, there’s no Jeff Bridges in it, but new villains do include Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell, and Bill O’Reilly.
