Iron Man

In classic Marvel comics style, Iron Man takes you through how eccentric (to the point of being irresponsible and brash) weapons prodigy Tony Stark played by Robert Downey Jr. realizes the sad consequences of his creations and decides to wage a war against his own corporation. Out comes Iron Man, a gold and titanium alloy war suit which every gadget-freak would want to own. Hoooooo - wheeeee!!

As always, Robert Downey rocks with his I-am-so-careless-that-I-could-not-care-less attitude, Gwyneth Paltrow plays a nice subdued Pepper Potts ... whilst the main man is the baddie, Jeff Bridges who has played the corporate head honcho to the hilt. I could not believe my eyes that this was the same Jeff Bridges of the Big Lebowski fame. The movie simply rocks with special effects and a nice movie outline to show how the super hero came into being. Although the fight between Iron Man and Iron Monger (the baddie) could still be a little bit more packed with some FX, the movie is still a must see for all action and comic buffs. 8.3 all the way!!!

PS - Stay on at the theater even after the credits ... there is a special treat at the very end.

Lucifer said...

Wasn't SHIELD an acronym for the long organisation name this guy who helped Gwyneth worked for? Some Secure Homeland Intelligence...?

But did you check out the info on that movie? I have seen the trailer and it surely got me interested. Plus it starts Will Smith.

Prasad said...

Cool!! Will Smith as a marvel superhero ... thats one in my Too Watch List. I just scratched off Meet the Spartans off that list when I saw that it was on IMDB Bottom 100 :))
