Iron Man (2008) – “When wealthy industrialist Tony Stark is forced to build an armored suit after a life-threatening incident, he ultimately decides to use its technology to fight against evil.” Iron Man gave rise to not only Tony Stark as Iron Man, but also the Iron Monger. I loved the choice of villain in the first movie and the portrayel of him by The Big Lebowski himself, Jeff Bridges. I gave this movie 8 out of 10 stars.
Iron Man 2 (2010) – “Tony Stark has declared himself Iron Man and installed world peace… or so he thinks. He soon realizes that not only is there a mad man out to kill him with his own technology, but there’s something more: he is dying.” In the second installment we get to see the rise of what I believe to be the modern version of Crimson Dynamo who was played by Mickey Rourke and renamed Whiplash (Ivan Vanko). This movie seemed to delve deeper into the mind and of Stark showing us his troubled side. I Really enjoyed the second installment with the introduction of War Machine. I also gave the second 8 Stars.
Now for the 3rd installment on the next page.
