Iron Man 2 is a good two hours plus of solid entertainment, it moves along at a good pace most of the time (sags a little in the middle) and keeps the attention well. Time flies by. Jon Favreau delivers an assured directorial performance and I honestly can't think who could have done a better job with the two Iron Man films.
I won't go into too much detail or spoil too much, but there is some nice interplay between all the characters, a lot of humour (some of it cutting, I like it!), glamour, conflict, character development and fabulous action. We see several of the characters exhibiting steely will and resolve..or should that be 'iron'?
