Iron Man 2

An ego worthy of a superhero?  Tony Sparks seems to think so in this, the second installment in what one hopes will be the Iron Man series. 

A new villain, Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke) seeks revenge on the Stark empire for perceived wrongdoings in the past.  Using technology adapted from Starks own, Ivan creates a deadly electrifying prototype to pursue his vengeance.  But Ivan is not alone.  Justin Hammer, seeing potential in Ivan, enlists him for his cause, his desire for the greatest of government military contracts. Will Tony's egotistical Iron Man prevail?  The government wants his prototype.  Can Tony win when his own friend, Lt. Col. James "Rhody" Rhodes, is against him?  

Action, suspense and romance make for excellent viewing.  This viewer enjoyed the first and was glad for a second in what is hopefully an ongoing series in the Iron Man superherodom.  Is that even a word?  Anyway, definitely one worthy of my video library.  When does it come out on DVD?  I can't wait!
