I went and saw Iron Man this weekend (ahem . . . three times). Now, you all know how I am about superheros (they are totally awesome), so I never have an objective take. But this is different, please believe me. Please?
Iron Man is one of the best superhero movies ever made. I kid you not. Most of you have never heard of Iron Man, I know. Think Batman, just funny and cocky. Tony Stark (Iron Man) has all the money of Bruce Wayne (well, that is debatable), but transfer the brains of Bruce (yes, I am on first name basis, so?) from the detective sphere to the technical genius sphere. Now you have Tony Stark, ready to be a superhero.
The special effects were out of this world, but they were different. They focused on the suit of Iron Man as well as the computer technology used to build the Iron Man suit. You will be impressed.
The layout of the movie is genius. There is nothing overdone, and the story is laid out perfectly, helping you to understand everything you need to know about Tony Stark and why and how he becomes Iron Man. This movie has enough of the chills/this-is-so-cool-I-think-I-am-going-to-cry-factor that you will say, “And why didn’t I know about Iron Man?”
This movie was almost too believable. I really think if this pastor/theologian thing does not work out I will become Iron Man. Seriously.
As of today, it is experiencing the pleasure of being the highest fan rated movie EVER at Boxofficemojo. Incredible!
Seventy times seventy stars.
