iron man 2 showtimes

More light comedy and heavy armaments, in a sequel machine-tooled to replicate the 2008 original. The first third is terrific, with Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow striking sparks and a thrilling action sequence in which villain Mickey Rourke, outfitted with a pair of electric lashes, saunters around the track at the Grand Prix cutting racecars in half. After that the movie settles into a series of ho-hum conflicts and complications, and the requisite slam-bang ending is perfunctory at best. Downey is captivating as usual, plus you have to admire the guy’s decency in allowing us all to cohabit earth with him. Jon Favreau directed; with Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Samuel L. Jackson, and Garry Shandling. PG-13, 124 min.
