Iron Man Movie - Our Take - Part 2 - A Woman's POV!

Our Take On The Iron Man Film

Part 2


Tina's Take!

(Note: We are reviewing the screening of this film separately - From a woman's POV and a comic book geek's POV. We will attempt from posting any spoilers!)


Last night Michael and Tina attended the May 2nd 2008 Iron Man Film Screening! Here are Tina's Thoughts:

"Two Thumbs Up - Both of mine" says Tina!

I love a good origin movie (think Spider-Man 1 and Batman Begins, as opposed to The Incredible Hulk.) 

And, this is a good origin movie.  The character development was involving and entertaining.

Robert Downey Jr is spot-on as the snarky playboy.  It's a dream cast of Academy Award winner and nominees.

The story is well played.  We walked away feeling that we saw a movie - an action movie - not a "comic book" movie.

For me, the casting of Terrence Howard seemed a little off - who knew Rhodey was a metrosexual - but Howard does a fine job.

Favorite scene: when Iron Man fires up in the red and gold for the first time - it's exhilarating. 

Favorite movie moment: Stan Lee's cameo - watch for him on the red carpet at Stark Industries' charity event.

Best line: the last line of the movie. (I won't ruin it for you.)

One final note: The picture is rated PG-13. I would strongly caution parents to leave the young ones home.  While much of the violence is off-screen.  You know people are being killed; you don't see them dying.  However, there are two rather disturbing torture scenes - definitely not suitable for young ones.

Overall, I enjoyed it! Tell us what you think if you have seen it!
