#11: IRON MAN 2
Director: Jon Favreau
Stars: Robert Downey, Jr., Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Sam Rockwell, Gwyneth Paltrow
Complex co-sign: Admittedly, this inferior sequel to Favreau’s 2008 introduction to Tony Stark (Downey, Jr.) does have one or two characters too many, and Mickey Rourke is wasted as the non-event villain Ivan Vanko. So it helps that we’re suckers for A-grade-looking action setpieces (like the Circuit de Monaco fight) and Scarlett Johansson jumping around in a skintight black body suit as Black Widow. We’re also fans of ScarJo dressed in cleavage-exposing white tops, as she also is here. Frankly, Iron Man 2 could’ve been a silent film for all we care.
