Six months after Tony Stark revealed that he is Iron Man, the U.S. government wants him to hand over his armoured suit, while the arms manufacturers and rogue nations across the globe are in a race to duplicate it. While this is happening, the life-sustaining arc reactor in Stark’s chest is slowly killing him. Iron Man was an enjoyable origin story. This sequel is a more mechanical superhero action film. Once again Iron Man battles second rate copies of himself. The story is busy setting up future franchise entries, such as The Avengers. However, Robert Downey, Jr gives another enjoyably silky performance.
