Iron Man 2 ★★★½

While not as awesome as the first one (something that could be said about almost every sequel), this is a strong follow-up for our man with the iron suit and glowing chest power-up, played by the inimitable Robert Downey Jr. Seriously, can you imagine anybody else playing Iron Man instead of him?

Also great performances by Mickey Roarke as Whiplash, Don Cheadle as War Machine and Gwenthy Paltrow as Pepper Potts. The chemistry between Downey and Paltrow is as electric as anything coursing through Iron Man. This is a fun, entertaining ride and recommended.
