Iron Man 2
I'm a big fan of comic books, but if in 2007 you had asked me about the potential success of the 'Iron Man' franchise I would never have predicted this. I love Tony Stark as much as the next guy, but he's never been as big a draw as Spider-Man or The X-Men, but 'Iron Man 2' is one of the most anticipated comic book movies around.
I give most of the credit to Robert Downey Jr. He's charming, irreverent, witty, and he's more than a little like the fictional Tony Stark that he portrays. 'Iron Man 2' is no different. It's a good movie made great by the performance of Downey. The Bonus View's Drew Taylor puts it best. "If John Cassavetes made a ‘Superman’ movie, it’d probably look something like this. Except, you know, without all the wounding psychological/emotional exchanges."
