Review of "Iron Man 2" DVD version

Review of
Iron Man 2 DVD version

Five out of five stars
 This sequel to the original is just as powerful and entertaining as the first. The technical genius Tony Stark is slowly dying, being poisoned by the energy device in his chest that keeps him alive. Believing that he only has a short time to live, he engages in some bizarre and self-destructive behaviors, made even more serious by the fact that he is the powerful Iron Man.
 Robert Downey Jr. plays the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man very well, the supporting cast around Tony simultaneously prop him up as well as try to level him out. Given a powerful hero, it is necessary to have an equally powerful villain and Mickey Rourke is superb as the fellow genius Ivan Vanko. Like Stark, Vanko is capable of creating super weapons under primitive conditions with few resources.
  A second villain is provided by a fellow industrialist that was humiliated by Stark, but now wants revenge along with billions in defense dollars. There is a climactic battle where Tony is on the verge of defeat and is aided by a soldier in another armored suit. The super-secret agency of S. H. I. E. L. D. headed by Nick Fury is also introduced and quickly becomes a potential major player.
 Like the comics from which the characters were taken, the story reaches a conclusion, yet it is clear that a great deal of ground work has been established for future adventures of the man in the armored suit.
