Movie review: Iron Man 2 (2010)

Filed under: General — dknights @ 12:48 pm

I don’t like movies made from comic books.  I liked the original Batman with Michael Keaton.  I didn’t like any of the Superman or Spiderman movies.  So, I was surprised that I liked the original Iron Man.  I am pretty sure that a lot of that was because of Robert Downey Jr., who, despite his personal issues, has turned out to be an excellent actor.

Because of this, I decided to give Iron Man 2 a try.  I was disappointed.  The story was disjointed.  The script didn’t seem to have any of the sparkle of the first movie.  The parts of the movie involving SHIELD probably meant something to those who were fans of the comic book, but they were lost on me.

It wasn’t a bad movie.  It just wasn’t the pleasant surprise that Iron Man had been.
