  • My catching Iron Man 2 this weekend was pretty much a given. It retained alot of the things that made the first movie great, while falling a bit short of the greatness of the first. That said, it was a thoroughly enjoyable flick, and still better than most “superhero” movie fare. Had they ditched most of the shoehorned-in Avengers movie setup to give Mickey Rourke‘s excellent Ivan Vanko more scenery to chew, as well as dropping some of the penultimate mass action sequences to extend the final battle, it might have been a near home run.
