TV Tuesday: Iron Man II
Iron Man II is a fun, comic book romp that lives up to the expectations set by the first movie and by Marvel Comics in general. That said, it is not a children's movie, as has been the case for every Marvel Comics movie I have ever seen. It is an action flick. It is about special effects, movie stars, and big guns. And that's what we, the audience, want in this kind of movie.
But this kind of movie is not for children. I will say, though, that it could be a fun movie for teens, especially mature ones. There is little offensive language, no nudity, and no blood or gruesome violence. The female characters (especially Scarlett Johansson) do wear rather form fitting clothing, but aren't in every scene.
There you have it.
