You should definitely still do a date night with your man to see’Iron Man 2.’ But be forewarned – some of that unexpected funny soul has been sucked out of the sequel!
What made the first Iron Man sooo charming was the surprisingly irreverent bad boy/genius/heir to a weapons fortune ,Tony Stark. He wasn’t dark like Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, nor was he a cute doofus of a farm boy like Superman, aka Clarke Kent. He was a modern, narcissistic, sophisto-guy who was also unexpectedly funny and ironic.
It was all about Robert Downey Jr. and what he had to say in character. The problem with Iron Man 2 is that he doesn’t get enough to say. Every time he gets on a roll amusing us, suddenly the filmmakers are having him trash his own house or crash a race car that somehow, he’s driving in Cannes!
I’m still scratching my head trying to figure out who Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson are supposed to be, but Scarlett does have an impressive catsuit scene that you’ll enjoy!
Let’s just hope that Iron Man 3 will have WAY more sexy, funny Robert and a less of the stuff that gets blowed up!
