Robert Downey Jr. puts the drugs down and makes a movie about TONY STAWRK! Him and IRAWRN MAYUNN! He's not a Mega Man villain either. Awh.
Ahhh, comic book movies. They're making more comic books into them thar crazy movies these days. Funny thing is there's a 70/30 good/bad factor in them. Good comic book movies include:
Yeah. So what does Iron Man fall under? Looks like you HAVE TO KEEP READING!
Tony Stark is a genious. Tony Stark is a weapons genious. Tony Stark makes money selling weapons. Tony Stark gets laid a lot. Tony Stark has a huge house. Tony Stark has awesome cars. Tony Stark is in need of a life lesson.
Cue that fucking Ozzy Song!
Thus Tony Stark gets captured and learns a LIFE LESSON! Enter Iron Man, 0.5 BETA!
You know how Hugh Jackman is an uncanny Wolverine? Well Robert Downey Jr is an uncanny Tony Stark. He almost looks exactly like Stark in the comics, right down to that funky goatee thing he has. Not only does he look like Starky (CHRONO CROSS REFERENCDE LOLS), his performance is extremely entertaining. In fact the dialogue is so well written you're even completely hooked in between explosions and fight scenes.
That's not so bad, eh?
What happens if you don't moisturize!
And who would have thought that Jeff Bridges could play a (SLIGHT SPOILER WARNING) bad guy? Yep, he did. And he did fairly well. From "The Dude" to "power hungry nice guy", Bridges comes out of nowhere and tackles you with OMG and possibly, ICBI.
Only performance that was a bit lacking was Gwenthelith Palmthrow. Geez she has a weird name. Anyway, Gwennie seems a bit bland and was my least favorite part of the movie, but luckily that made up for explosions and IRAWRN MAN!
Good comic book movies aren't so uncommon nowadays, and GREAT ones will pop up out of nowhere. Iron Man was pure entertaining badassery, and even if your girlfriend hates everything, take her to see this movie. She'll put out if you use some bad puns such as, "It's not at all a STARK for you to want my IRON MAN."
Enjoy or be crushed!
