Iron Man 2 + Mother's Day Weekend = The Perfect Combination

Post  Rodger on Sun May 09, 2010 10:09 am



Since today is all about the lovely Mrs. Lombardi, and I want to steer clear of a battle with her, I took my eldest, Coulton to see IM2 yesterday. You should be happy to know IM2 more or less wins its battle with "sequelitis," managing to successfully squeeze a hodgepodge of storylines and characters into one two-hour adventure while still keeping the narrative focus sharply on Tony Stark, played once again with unbridled aplomb by Robert Downey, Jr. IM 2 doesn't always successfully balance all of these moving parts, but considering how wildly it could have gone off the rails, think Schumacher's Batman sequels, it's a significant and highly entertaining accomplishment on the part of Marvel Studios and director Jon Favreau.

Contrary to what AC/DC says – the band of choice in the Iron Man films – **** is a bad place to be, especially if you're Tony Stark! Cool

Like fine wine, Robert Downey Jr. gets better with age. I wouldn't mind seeing this film, even on Mother's Day.

Iron Man 2 was fun, and the teaser after the credits was rad! But what's with the mom kid relationship? Did all of that belong in the film. Mickey Rourke was awesome with his Russian accent and all. It was fun seeing SHIELD begin to fold itself into Stark's world where he realizes he's not the largest thing on the planet.

I sense some irony in the title of this thread. This film is tops at the box office and will remain there for many weeks to come.
