Topic: Ironman (SPOILERS AHEAD)
Well, just saw Ironman. I thought it was damn good. BUT...not good enough for the hype (sp?). It was a really fun movie, and it took a comic book movie into a direction that most of the comic movies should do: FUN. Most of the comic book films are going with the darker side. (With Batman it suits him of course so no problem there). I felt that with this movie, instead of having a super serious super hero movie, they made it into a fun movie and were serious when necessary.
I thought Robert Downey Jr. made the perfect Tony Stark, but the film had the same problem that the Ironman comics did...a shaky foe. The antagonist in this case was Stark's partner, but he didnt really fit an EVIL character that well. He was just...bad, but not very sinister and evil.
Of course I also would have liked to see more Ironman moments. More of Ironman doing what Ironman does. But it was the first movie, so I can just pass it off as Ironman needing more of an introduction this time around. The sequel, I hope, should have alot more action, gadgets and fighting.
Over all the movie was still pretty cool. They didnt mess up the Ironman suit, it is freaking extremely cool and I want one. They stuck to Ironman's origins pretty well. The funny parts were funny, the serious parts were serious, and the action scenes were....actiony. So it was a great movie...but some part of me feels that theres something missing. (any thoughts) More on that later.
The fact that at the end, Stark reveals to the press that he is Ironman may be something that pisses off alot of ppl...but I'm ok with it. Its not something very wise in Stark's shoes, but they did well with the movie so lets just see how it plays out. Have faith ppl.
So...what do you think?
