Last night, I went to see the new “Iron Man” at a late showing. It really wasn’t one of my most anticipated films of the year, I saw it because it got good reviews and broke world records in box office. It actually took me a while to get interested in Iron Man because to be honest, I wasn’t interested in it at first. So I decided to check it out.
Robert Downey Jr. plays a business man and rich guy named Tony Stark. He goes on a trip with the Army in the Middle East, and then he suddenly suffered some life threatening danger there. Tony owns a weapons business where he makes a living off of and his goal to help saves lives in the world. Tony and the Army are being attacked in the Middle East by terrorist, Tony Stark decides to go on revenge by building an armor full of robotic weapons and flying equipment known as Iron Man.
As far as my thoughts on the movie goes, I thought it was pretty good and entertaining. Nothing amazing or great, but exceptionally good. I give credit for Marvel movies improving though. The fight scenes were entertaining but could be a little longer. Iron Man could have had a few more weapons. Jeff Bridges played a pretty good bad guy in the film. I also give credit to Robert Downey Jr’s good acting in the film.
While I thought “Iron Man” was pretty good, I’m sure there are even better movies coming out this year like “Indy 4”, “Prince Caspian”, “The Dark Knight”, “Wanted”, etc. I’m glad I went and saw “Iron Man” ’cause I came pretty close in waiting for DVD release.
“Iron Man” film score: *** (3 stars as in good)
