I was worried this would still be the Iron Man show, like it’s predecessor, but I was pleased to find it was nicely balanced between characters both old and new. It obviously has frequent action sequences, which are smoothly directed and not too headache inducing. I really liked the social commentary; the discussion of technological advancements and our views towards defense programs, I just felt it needed more of this. Joss Whedon is still pleasing audiences with witty dialogue and a comic book visual style. The highlight for me is that FINALLY Paul Bettany makes an appearance in the flesh.
