Iron Man 2

I loved the first Iron Man and was looking forward to Iron Man 2, but while it looked great on an Imax screen and certainly entertained, something was missing.

The problem with this film is that the underlying story was just too feeble, as was the character and back story development. This wasn’t entirely due to a lack of effort. There is clearly an intention to develop an overarching narrative to sustain several films, with more than a hint of other forces and conspiracies.

In the end though the temptation to go for spectacle above all else prevailed, resulting in an enjoyable but, on reflection, empty experience.
