Default Re: Iron Man vs Iron Man 2

Iron Man: ***/*****

Solid, but Downey was more of a show saver than a stealer. Plot was serviceable, but felt like a watered down Batman Begins.

Iron Man 2: */*****

Sucked. Bad acting, poor character writing, poor pacing, awful party scene reminiscent of Spider-Man 3 dance number, whopper of a deus ex machina with the "element in the diorama", overflow of Avengers references bogging down the screenplay, forced "message from beyond the grave" father/son moment, dull climax.

"We'll never see Day-Lewis and Kubrick, we'll never see Kurosawa and Eastwood, but we have officially seen Bale and Nolan, a cinematic dream pairing come to life!"
