I’m just going to post my reviews here, so have at you.
On to the review. Since Marvel Entertainment has started Marvel Studios, we have 2 films opening this summer. One is The Incredible Hulk (sans Ang Lee), and the other is this film called IRON MAN.
Being a 10 year old kid in the 90s, I have a general idea of who Iron Man is. One of my first comics was this issue of Iron Man. Back on topic, Iron Man is a guy in a robot suit who beats up on EVIL guys in robot suits (that also includes Dr. Doom. DOOM!). He’s also a Military Industrialists who gets to find out first hand what his products can do to him and others. Tony Stark hence develops a conscious and goes around taking out terrorists/giant armor guys. And hitting on supermodels in the mean time.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, this was a damn good film. Downey Jr. is a PERFECT Tony Stark. Terrence Howard as Jim Rhodes, also good. Gwenyth Platrow’s Pepper Potts is a good foil to Stark’s man on a mission.
Lots of action, some terrorist get beat up, and it ends with a big third act fight (duh).
4.5 (out of 5) China Kicks!
