**Iron Man 2** is the typical summer blockbuster, enjoyable cast, fantastic visuals with a fable about good entrepreneurship and bad entrepreneurship. The **Iron Man ** sequel is basically plotless and moves from one outrageous situation to another one, but at least the situations are entertaining.
After revealing himself to be THE Iron Man in the last movie, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has become a public figure. A target for both the paparazzi and a corrupt Senator Stern (Gary Shandling), Stark is privately suffering with blood toxicity levels caused by his bionic heart.
So when things are most complicated in Tony Stark's full life, a rival weapons manufacturer (Sam Rockwell `best performance in the sequel) plots corporate warfare with a family enemy of Tony Stark, the Soviet born Whiplash (Mickey Rourke). Fortunately Tony has a good team to back him up, secretary Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), new assistant Romanoff (Scarlett Johanssen) and the mysterious Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson, in a reoccurring role for other Marvel Comic Book movies). Conflict ensues, challenges are met and the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Discovery IMAX theatre has another box office winner for two weeks.
