Iron Man

Iron Man: takes far, FAR, too long to get in to the good stuff, although I guess it’s good to build up the characters a bit. Downey Jr plays his role pretty well, although it’s the typecast of himself he’s been playing for decades. For an action film there wasn’t actually that much action, and what there was wasn’t amazing / memorable. The bad-guys aren’t particularly evil or scary. Some good jokes peppered through the film. Spent the whole film waiting to hear the intro of the Ozzy version of Iron Man, but this didn’t happen. Stick around after the credits because there’s a 20 second skit that tees up sequels (and will give all Marvel fans a hard-on). Finally, when he’s flying, his posture is similar to that of a transvestite / drag queen – i.e. not very super-hero like. All in all, after looking at a few review sites online I can not believe I’ve not seen any particularly bad ones as it’s NOT an amazing superhero film like Batman Gegins, Spiderman 1/2 or X-Men.

Score: 6/10.
