Film Review: Iron Man

Starring: Robert Donwey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jeff Bridges

Directed by: Jon Favreau

 
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)

BREAKING NEWS: Iron Man scores high in box office, “Son Of Rambow” did surprisingly well too!!!

The film “Iron Man” scored a sky rocketing $100.7 million in the box office this weekend. That’s fuckin’ impressive!

Also, the movie the “Son of Rambow” a film about two kids making their own Rambo film scored pretty high even if the movie was shown in only 5 theaters in the U.S., “Son of Rambow” made $52,549. Not bad for a film that was only playing in selected theaters. It’s very rare that a small movie like that scores high in box office. But hey, keep in mind it’s a movie adapted from the real “Rambo”. And “Rambo” is always the king of box office so….

I’m happy for Robert Downey Jr. that he’s staying off the drugs and staying out of trouble, the guy is looking real good these days too. This is definitely his biggest film in his entire career ever.

I’ll see “Iron Man” soon myself, I’ll see it later in the week.

Thought: May will be a big competition for movies…

So, three huge films are coming out all in one month in May. “Iron Man, “Indiana Jones 4”, and “Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian”. I plan on seeing all three next month. At first I wasn’t interested in “Iron Man” but the more photos and trailers I’ve seen of the film, I now think it’s going to be one of the best superhero films made in a long time.

Indy 4 I’ve been dying to see ever since it was first announced. I’m such a huge Indy nut. I actually watched “Raiders of the Lost Ark” on DVD a couple of days ago and the movie still amazes me, you learn something new everytime you watch that film. I’ve seen “Raiders” over a hundred times that I’ll never get tired of that film. I plan on watching “Temple of Doom” and “The Last Crusade” this weekend.

But in Indy 4, I really think we’re definitely going to see the return of the Ark. In the previews and the pictures, we see Indy trying to fight for a boxed crate in a warehouse against the Russians. Which I’ll imagine the Ark of Covenant is inside of it. Indy 4 shall be a great film and I’m looking forward to it. Indy 4 definitely will not top “Raiders” but it will be a fun movie.

“Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian”, I love the Chronicles of Narnia books by C.S. Lewis so much, I’ve read them all when I was a kid. The animated movies of these stories weren’t that great, the low budget UK versions are shit too. It is about time a live action US movie is made off these books. “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” is such a mind blowing film, it’s a beautiful film and it’s definitely one of my top films ever made, and “Prince Caspian” looks amazing too.

We all know these three films will make big money breaking records, which one will make the most money out of all three of them?

I am predicting “Indy 4”. “Indy 4” will steal the record out of all three. I’m sure when May 22nd comes, we’ll be seeing the lines of the movie theaters going out all the way past the food courts in the malls. This is why I plan on seeing these movies in the afternoon so I don’t have to deal with long lines in the evening hours.

But I’m really am looking forward to these three films. I haven’t been to the theaters to see a new film for a while ’cause there hasn’t been anything good playing the last couple of months, The last movie I saw in theater was “Vantage Point” I think, that was a while back. And of course, I will review “Iron Man”, “Indy 4” and “Prince Caspian” in this blog. Can’t wait to see ’em.
