My opinion on Iron Man 2 aka, A great way to Phone it in and rake in the cash
Another sequel that got phoned in. Just because there's a fan base that enjoyed the first film doesn't mean the creators/actors/writers etc. can't give it their all. The plot is paper thin. The so-called character arc of Tony Stark is cliched and boring. The climax at the end between the actual hero and bad guy falls short. Scarlett Johansson is in way over her head to be playing a superhero. Her character of Black Widow is underused but also NOT needed and just serves as filler. I went in with low expectations and came out with even lower satisfaction.
