Iron Man 2 2010 ★★★

Not the shabbiest sequel of all time, I'll grant you. Some notable improvements (Don Cheadle being the obvious one), but real pacing problems (probably due to Favreau's gratuitous self-insertion), and Pepper Potts is relegated to damsel status by Black Widow (because Hollywood apparently has a hard limit of one strong female character per film).

  • Also because this movie is almost exactly the same as the first one but with more stupid Avengers setup. The reset button Pepper bumped into between movies is particularly bizarre.

  • Absolutely! There was that lovely scene on the open cargo door in the trailer, which would have been great, but it was obviously from a completely different film.

Please to comment.
