Re: OFFICIAL: Rate & Review Iron Man 2 continued...
The thing about that is we don't know how much of the performances attained to the motives of the characters. Rhodey was a lot more relaxed with Tony because he was imprisoned for months and thought Tony was losing his mind a little.
In IM2, there is definitely some tension between Rhodey and Tony with Rhodey being put in between a tough spot of being Tony's best friend, but not only a part of the government, but a part of the military wing that want's the Iron Man suit. So he is pissed at Tony for being in that situation, especially when things blow over after seeing Tony drunkenly misuse the Iron Man suit.
