Iron Man Mini-Review

3 05 2008

With all the failures in comics movies, sometimes they get it right. Sometimes they REALLY get it right, and it’s all good. Gets you up, gets you hollering, and the “WOOHOO!”s come with ease.

This one does it. Beginning to end.

Robert Downey Jr? Welcome back.
Gwyneth Paltrow? You’re still hot, and this time, they let you act.
Jeff Bridges? Long way from Kevin Flynn, you still got it.

And for those who like the mechanics, the CGI, the detail, all the visuals? I once saw a quick review of Transformers that said “Less girl, more robot.” – I was fully expecting not to get enough of Tony Stark’s creations in Iron Man. In this, I was disappointed. There was plenty, and it was a steady stream of awesome.

Yea, pretty sweet ride! CGI was good and not too “And now for the CGI portion of the show.” Well, okay, maybe just a bit. A bit. But I still enjoyed it – damn it.
RDJr. – well done.
GP – Looking more womanly (not girly) = hotter in my book.
JB – Somehow you managed to capture the evil goodness of today’s corporate elite.
