Review: Iron Man

I just got back home from watching IRON MAN and all I can say is OMFG WOW! I loved every minute of the movie and the special effects are out of this world! I wish all those gadgets and computers were actually real! I was dying to see this movie since I saw the trailer and especially since I used to watch the IRON MAN cartoons when I was a kid. Due for worldwide release on May 2nd, it was released in Paris today (which is rather surprising) and it was over-booked for the 7:20pm VOST show. We were lucky to get 3 seats where we did because those who came in after us and just before the movie was about to start were not so lucky, there were even people sitting on the floor! IRON MAN is the type of movie that you MUST check out in the cinema rather than wait for DVD version and it certainly does not disappoint!

Synopsis: Iron Man is a superhero film based on the fictional Marvel Comics character of the same name. The film is directed by Jon Favreau and stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, a billionaire industrialist who is captured by terrorists in Afghanistan. Ordered to build a missile, Stark uses his resources instead to build a suit of power armor and make his escape. Returning to America, Stark improves his armor and becomes the technologically advanced superhero Iron Man. Gwyneth Paltrow plays his secretary and love interest Virginia Potts, Terrence Howard plays jet pilot James Rhodes, and Jeff Bridges plays the villainous Obadiah Stane.

[rating: 5] yes I thought it was THAT good I scored it 5/5

    @Ansam – there isn’t much they can censor, maybe one part but thats about it. It’s the type of movie you need a huge screen and killer sound system!
