Which is one damn shame as that friends fight was absurd. We all knew they weren't killing each other. It was a big budgeted alley fight between drunk friends (one drunk, one trying to control him). If that was the best IM2 had to offer action-wise then IM1 beats it by a long mile. The last fight was a classic explosion feast. Lots of robots, lots of shooting, etc. Not bad, but that alone can't save a movie. I might have addressed that when I said "It might have been more, or with more expensive special effects, but the times in IM1 were so much better."
