HCB our friend, home-boy, and once-and-future co-conspirator has a fine review of Iron Man 2 on the Culture Catch site.

“It might be fair to say that what Vanko really wants is to humiliate the rich, handsome, babe-magnet Stark because he’s spent his entire life in a dark, decrepit Moscow hovel with his bitter, dying alcoholic dad. Seems like there’s more than a whiff of old-school Soviet Union/American Cold War jealousy at work here. Nevertheless, Vanko does manage to montage his way through the construction of a state-of-the-art Stark-killing supersuit in his filthy living room, pay for a ticket to the Riviera, kill a number of unfortunate race car drivers at the Grand Prix, and get brought in through the back door to work for Stark’s wealthiest competitor. You’d think getting bottomless funding, unlimited resources, and a staggering amount of Stark-worthy ass kissing would mellow the guy, but you’d be wrong.” (Click here for the whole thing)
