Iron Man 2 Movie 2010 Review

If there were any new ideas, I failed to spot them, as did my bone marrow, which slept through most of it anyhow.

Deborah Ross (The Spectator)

I don’t think the story was nearly as strong as that of The Dark Knight, but it sure was entertaining and surprisingly funny… and sets up The Avengers quite nicely.

Candice Frederick  (Reel Talk Online)

The whiz-bang stuff here — while never less than slick — doesn’t produce anything we haven’t seen before.
