Friday Night Date Night is a feature on my blog that showcases movie reviews (mostly movies that were adapted from books). Hopefully some of these reviews will help you decide what to watch on your date night or a night of relaxing at home.
I'm not much of a comic book reader, but I love Superheroes! I also love alpha males who are a bit cocky and arrogant...so who's a better superhero than Iron Man...or at least when Robert Downey Jr. is playing him.
Iron Man 2 was not quite what I expected in an action movie. There are more emotional situations than I'm used to in a superhero movie, but I think that made me connect with the characters more. I actually felt bad for Tony Stark at times and was a bit worried about him. I think that Justin Theroux wrote a great screenplay that really showed off both the hard and soft side of a these fun comic book characters.
But don't fret, this movie had it's fair share of action too. The fight scenes were bigger than the first movie and the special effects were out of this world.
With a star-studded cast and a fun story, this is a movie you won't want to miss.
