ImageThere's only one movie that's getting a wide release this week, and for good reason.  Robert Downey Jr. is donning the red and yellow armor again in the sequel to the surprise mega-hit of 2008.
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."
