Iron Man 2 begins with Robert Downey Jr.’s character, Tony Stark, being under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his super hero iron man invention with the military. However, Stark does not want to give away hi secret. He is worried that it will slip into the wrong hands.

The film also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell and Samuel L. Jackson. It is directed and producer by Jon Favreau. Comic book legend Stan Lee and Denis L. Stewart also helped to produce the film. Iron Man 2 is rated PG-13 for intense action, violence and some language. It is two hours and five minutes long in length.

Stark appoints his personal assistant Pepper Potts (played by Gwyneth Paltrow) as the new CEO of Stark Industries. He later replaces her with his secretary Natalie Rushman (who is played by Scarlett Johansson).

The movie begins with a race in Monaco. Stark is attacked by Ivan Vanko (played by Mickey Rourke), who constructs a mini arc reactor of his own, which comes with electric energy. Stark is able to defeat Vanko with the aid of his armor briefcase. He realizes that his opponent is the son of disgraced Russian physicist Anton Vanko. Then, Vanko is broken out of jail by Justin Hammer, who is seeking revenge. Hammer hires Vanko to create a line of “Iron Drones” that will be presented at the Expo. You’ll have to see the movie to find out what happens next.

As for someone who never saw the first “Iron Man,” I will still able to enjoy this movie. There was lots of action to keep me on the edge of my seat. The person seated next to me said it was better than the first one. It is kind of long at just over two hours, but there is enough action to keep you awake and alert.

Be sure to stay for the entire list of credits. There is a special scene featuring S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Coulson (played by Clark Gregg).

OVERALL RATING: A-

Iron Man 2 is now open in theaters nationwide.
