Iron Man

Went to see Iron Man last night and loved it. Super Hero films, in my opinion, fall into one of two categories, either great or BAD. The bad ones just don’t quite cohere, take themselves too seriously, too flippantly or just fail to work. Iron Man is definitely in the ‘great’ category though, great film and great fun.

Robert Downey Junior plays the role of ‘Stark’ brilliantly. The characters’ journey from the playboy genius CEO of a weapons company to his role as Iron man is handled well and within the slightly different realms of Superhero films, credibly. The film delivers all the required narrative and background creatively without long unnecessary dialogue or contrived explanations. The effects are fantastic, particularly Stark interacting with the 3D CadCam design …. and the flight sequences. Can’t say too much more without spoiling the film for you WHEN you go and see it!
IMHO, It’s a huge, fun and cool film. Right up there with Batman Begins and Spiderman 2.
