Iron Man 2

Recommended

125 min. minutes | Rated PG-13

As a rule, superhero movies get better when it comes time to make the sequel. Without the origin story to clog up the first half hour, and without the need for the hero to announce a statement of purpose in the last half hour, the filmmakers are actually free to... you know... make a movie. Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 was a perfect cinematic representation of what Spider-Man should be. The Dark Knight was the complex study of heroism that Christopher Nolan has probably always wanted to make. It's unfortunate and confusing, then, when you discover that Iron Man 2 is somehow less fun and less action-packed than its predecessor. Which is not to say that it doesn't have its fun moments, but most of those are reprisals of what made the first Iron Man movie such a sparkling surprise.
