Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2 starring Robert Downey Jr.: DVD Cover After saving the world, billionaire arms-maker Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr. "Sherlock Holmes") is riding on his laurels and fending off attacks from his smarmy competitor (Sam Rockwell "Confessions of a Dangerous Man") and pushy Senator Stern (Gary Shandling "The Larry Sanders Show"). Then a mysterious Russian (Mickey Rourke "The Wrestler") nearly kills him with technology that matches his own, but Tony has another secret problem: his mechanical heart is killing him. He won't confide in his faithful assistant Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow "Shakespeare in Love") or his best pal James "Rhodey" Rhodes (Don Cheadle "Hotel Rwanda"), but he prepares to leave everything to them. Then the shady Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson "Pulp Fiction") offers him another option.

Robert Downey Jr.  is even more arrogant, charming and downright funny in this sequel leaving everyone either loving or hating him. His scenes with Gwyneth Paltrow simmer with chemistry. And Scarlett Johansson ("Lost in Translation") gets between them effortlessly in her role as a sexy lawyer with a secret. Meanwhile Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell deliver powerful performances in smaller roles packed with intriguing subtexts.

Director Jon Favreau ("Elf") who also appears briefly as Happy Hogan keeps the action in Iron Man 2 constantly moving but with less focus on the extremely cool effects and more attention to the characters. Many sequences are exhilarating, mixing sharp comedy with intense brutality. It all makes for a bigger, louder, funnier, darker and far more compelling movie than the original Iron Man. It should appeal to almost all audiences.
