movie review: iron man 2

I saw Iron Man 2 and enjoyed it. All the performances were pretty great, but man, Sam Rockwell is awesome. He does these fast-talking guy a bit out of his depth roles so well. I rewatched The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy a while back and had new appreciation for his version of Zaphod Beeblebrox. Probably completely tainted by me loving Moon and then seeing him with me “actor I really like” beam, but whatever.

I did miss the Iron Man/Pepper “You complete me” bit from the trailer. And it isn’t really very clear how Vanko knew Tony Stark’d be driving in the race. But whatever. The lacklustre Thor reveal was more than made up for by the Captain America shield. Stuff blew up good. And DJ AM laid down some fat beats for two power-armoured best friends to beat each other down to. And then later they made up and it was all okay after they blew up a pile of robots.

There were people in the theatre who obviously haven’t been watching any hockey recently because they killed themselves laughing at that commercial with the guy addressing the ladies and he’s on a boat and a horse and the tickets are now diamonds. They thought it was the pinnacle of commercial hilarity. But they also laughed at the appropriate parts during the movie so it all worked out.
