poster_ironman-2Finally got around to seeing Iron Man 2 last night.

While a little more ragged and unfocused than the first, it’s still well worth the ticket price. With Robert Downey Jr. perfecting his brand of active interaction with the script and the rest of the cast, it’s nearly impossible to go wrong.

But here, Sam Rockwell — always a fave of mine — nearly steals the movie as Justin Hammer, Tony Stark’s corporate competitor. Mickey Rourke does a very good job of playing the heavy without any over-the-top scene chewing. He’s just there, and his presence alone provides more than enough menace.

And, yeah, there’s Scarlett Johansson.

Huh? What? Oh sorry, I was distracted for a moment. Don’t mind the drool.

Four multivitamins with iron out of five.
