    Action movies bring the male and teen audience (regardless of rating)., especially super hero themed flicks. Horror use to be the big draw and it all changed with Batman Begins. That movie set the bar for were we are today.

    2 was better, it has more action, more story. This new is too cheesy. Stark is weak and Pepper is too present on screen. It’s like this movie was made specially for the actress.
