Iron Man — An incredible start for this great super hero franchise — 8*/10

  • Scenario: This first chapter of the franchise was a big success and understandably so. Not only does it have great action, an almost roller coaster succession of fights, but everything around those was close to perfection. The only exception and my only regret is that I found the story a little light. It did give us a nice version of the birth of Iron Man and its successive improvements, but the last third of the movie was somewhat stark. That being said, do not let this deter you from seeing it, because it ranks amongst the best super hero flicks out there, and, please, do not miss the third chapter (read my review here), it's amazing.
  • Dialogs: Great, fast paced, loads of details.
  • Characters: An even better development than in the comics. I loved how they made characters out of the robots, just hilarious.
  • Actors: Robert Downey Jr. is the perfect Tony Stark, showing all its qualities and flaws in a beautiful rendition. The rest of the cast did a good job too. Cast members include Gwyneth Paltrow (just right for the role), Jeff Bridges (excellent performance on his part in a surprising role), Leslie Bibb, Paul Bettany (now, I can't imagine Jarvis with any other voice), Terrence Howard, Clark Gregg and Jon Favreau (who also did an amazing job as director).
  • Photography: Great.
  • Sound: Electrifying music and score.
  • Special effects: Perfect.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? Any super hero or Downey fans.
