But 'fun'... there were only 3 Iron man appearances; the second one was that stupid friends fight (preceeded by "humorous" drunk Tony Stark peeing in his suit) and the third one was more fast-paced than fun.
I disagree. The first movie was about Tony, an already older man, seeking redemption. This second movie was about Tony learning that he can't do everything himself through his father and his best friend.
Rourke didn't do much after the beginning but I still enjoyed his performance. I liked all of the Iron Man fights, though I agree there could be more.
