Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle

A new villain has emerged who has created a suit similar to Tony Stark’s Iron Man suit, using an arcane reactor he created himself in his basement. There seems to be a link between the villain’s father and Tony; that you will have to find out for yourself. Don Cheadle is in this film to take on the role of Rhodey, Stark’s military friend, who ultimately becomes War Machine. Let the battle of good vs. evil ensue.

I don’t want to talk too much about the other subtexts contained within the plot for those that have not seen the movie. If you are a fan of the Iron Man character and The Avengers comic series I would highly suggest this movie. I think the first Iron Man had more whit but I disagree with the other critics (shocker, I know) in that this movie was still worth the price of admission. I still really enjoyed it and honestly I’m glad the director picked up Don Cheadle to play the role of Rhodey; I think Cheadle is too often overlooked and underrated.

For those of you that are really into these movies and the talk of an Avengers movie, I would highly suggest that you stay in the theater until after the credits have finished. I hope you enjoy the film
