I just saw Iron Man 2. What a great movie!
I’m no film reviewer, and you probably don’t need my opinion on whether or not to go see this movie. But I will tell you that I am very happy to see two midlifers continue their respective cinematic bouncebacks — Robert Downey Jr. and Mickey Rourke. Everybody loves a comeback, and so do I. Of course playing a super hero and super villain may not be Oscar-winning roles (Heath Ledger notwithstanding), it’s just great to see decent performances from two guys who have waved off their demons and pulled their lives together in the middle ages.
