Like Tony Stark himself, 'Iron Man 2' is a sleek and cheeky number that almost certainly trumps the fun-factor of Jon Favreau's 2008's surprise hit, 'Iron Man'. And, like the bachelor champion, it falls a little short on logic, favouring impulses and glamour over perfect narrative arcs. This follow-on film sets a lighter tone and better pacing however, thanks in part to a mostly solid script from 'Tropic Thunder' screenwriter Justin Theroux, who matches sharp quips with performances from a cast who exude charisma and, refreshingly, plenty of humour.
After recounting the closing moments of the first film, we're led into present day, where Tony Stark's Iron Man alter-ego has all but solved the woes of the world, presumably through equal parts brute force and dirty martinis. This has led to a bit of a tax on Stark's body, as the arc reactor in his chest has begun to poison him. Toss in a vengeful, vodka-swilling Russian, conspiratorial government bodies and a leggy, new office assistant, and you have more plot points than your typical James Bond flick.
