Iron Man 2 Review

Iron Man 2. It's a fairly common plot. The great heroic badass finds out he's gonna die and goes off the rails as he prepares for the end. Steven Moffat has given us this trope twice recently with Doctor Who and Sherlock, even Harry Potter did it and well all of them did it better than Iron Man 2 with Sherlock being the best by far. No method of avoiding the coming death has been as contrived as Tony Stark inventing a new element with little to no explanation. Sure Harry Potter and Doctor Who had magic wands and Applied Phlebotinum but at least they didn't claim to create a new element using a hologram and a mini hadron collider if that's what that even was. That said the breakdown of Tony Stark was interesting to see and far more badass than anything else on the list. Dated: 29th September
