Iron Man 2

The sequel to 2008's Iron Man takes place six months later, when Tony Stark's identity-reveal is taking its toll.

Robert Downey Jr reprises his role as the hero, while two new villains are introduced. Whiplash (Mickey Rourke) is a tough Russian guy who has constructed his own suit with electro-charged whips. Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) is a rival industrialist. Scarlett Johansson plays Stark's new assistant, but is more than she seems...

Isn't as much fun as its predecessor, but by the time the smoke clears, it'll do.

I suspect I will now need an Iron Man suit of my own to protect me from the wrath of hardcore fans, but I hereby confess this latest outing did little to excite me, and in fact underwhelmed me at every turn.

Well, that didn't take long. Everything fun and terrific about "Iron Man," a mere two years ago, has vanished with its sequel. In its place, Iron Man 2 has substituted noise, confusion, multiple villains, irrelevant stunts and misguided story lines.

Rourke and Rockwell make satisfying, complementary villains, while Downey Jr. delivers again. Shame this sequel feels inessential, over-busy and a little, well, mechanical. Nothing they can’t put right for Iron Man 3.
