Our Take On The Iron Man Film
(Note: We will be reviewing our screening of this film separately - Also we will try not to post any spoilers if possible)
Back from the May 2nd 2008 Iron Man Film Screening!
1st- The teaser trailers that have been released previously have given away some of the film's best scenes.
So the opening scene is one we've seen before, thus it is a little 'flat' for opening the actual film, or was it 'poor editing'?
2nd- The origin of Tony Stark / Iron Man is a little slow, possibly due to the 'realism' that is injected in this storyline.
3rd- Th film is NOT 'comic-booky', as other than a small segment of the final act's fight scene, it is very realistic looking! Kudos to the CGI experts!
4th- Regarding the actors:
Robert Downey Jr truly IS Tony Stark, Great!
Paltrow is better as Pepper Potts that what several other critics have said of her.
Howard is Okay as Rhodey, IMHO.
Jeff Bridges is Outstanding as Stane!
Stan Lee was funny as 'Hef' in his cameo!
Jon (the director) sneaks in as 'Happy Hogan'...
5th- This film is truly PG-13. We saw the evening matinee, so there were some younger kids there, and several were scared by the realistic violence. It is NOT comic-booky!
6th- Worth the money, time watching and waiting for today??? Yes, Yes AND Yes! I would give it an 8.5 out of 10 points for being an 'Origin Movie'.
7th- Note: DON'T leave the theater before the end of the film's credits! You Marvel Fans DON'T want to miss the final scene!
8th- Very happy to see in the credits the Iron Man creators listed: Stan Lee, Don Heck, Larry Lieber & Jack Kirby!
