Advent Calendar of Movies: Day 8

Iron Man 2

It’s very rare that sequels live-up to the original, and even rarer that they surpass the original. And in keeping with this, Iron Man 2 fell a little short of its predecessor but without actually falling flat. The film saw Robert Downey Jr don the suit once more as the charismatic Tony Stark. The intro of Mickey Rourke as baddy Whiplash and Sam Rockwell as a sleazier, badly tanned version of Stark certainly helped to round off the cast well.
