Iron Man Review

This is it, the granddaddy of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The one that started it all. Iron Man is the origin story of our favorite Genius Billionaire Playboy Philanthropist Tony Stark and how he constructed the Iron Man suit and became the self proclaimed hero.

The story shows how he escaped from capture, perfecting the suit, and finding out and defeating the man who set him up to be captured in the first place.

As a film, it has great dialogue and a decent story line. But where the movie shines is in the acting, particularly with Robert Downey Jr. The man is Tony Stark. RDJ perfectly embodies Tony Stark, from the narcissism, sarcastic attitude, and the womanizing. They couldn't have picked a better actor.

The rest of the film is quite good. Apparently the crew actually built a full suit for Robert Downey Jr, and I got to say, the suit looks so cool. Its not cheap or corny looking, but all around badass.

As a superhero film at the time, it was a cut above the rest. The production was fantastic. The movie was so important that it literally established the handbook for all other MCU films that we would see at a later time. I give the film a 9 out of 10.
