Iron Man 2 suits up to entertain 

The comic book movie sequel arrives with fun buoyancy and a refreshing lack of self-importance.

With a somewhat jumbled script disappointing fans of the 2008 Iron Man, the new film does arrive with the same qualities that made the original such a delight. Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark has a twitchy intelligence, an impish need for attention and a tendency to let his dark moments of the soul to play out amid goofy, drunken debauchery. His nemeses are Sam Rockwell, as another weapons industrialist nipping at his heels, and Mickey Rourke, as a Russian baddie with Iron Man-like abilities and zero need to be beloved. Iron Man 2 has its glitches---over-emphasis on technological mumbo-jumbo that stretches the credibility of even a comic book movie to advance the plot---but the Iron Man franchise has a fun buoyancy and a refreshing lack of self-importance.
