    • Like Iron Man's UHD, this is a troubled disc, showing clear signs of noise reduction on the video end and a shortchanged soundtrack on the audio side. Purists need steer clear, but those who can accept...

    • Robert Downey Jr. suits up again in Iron Man 2, a straightforward follow-up that also goes a bit wonky and silly at times. Nevertheless, the sequel feels like a logical continuation of the first film's...
