Iron Man movie: first review

What's it about: Are you kidding me? Just follow the link if you're interested. Click here for a trailer.

Comments: If you haven't heard, the latest superhero to grace the silver screen is Marvel's Iron Man. Now I never really was a big fan of the Iron Man comic books, but the movie reportedly has some smashing special effects. I'm cool with that. This is also the first movie totally funded by Marvel.

More details: Strong points of the movie includes Robert Downey Jr.'s acting (that's him in the picture; looks kinda funny, doesn't he?), special effects (not just the explosions, and particularly Downey Jr. getting used to his suit), and a nice storyline that allows room for character development and witty dialogue. You also have Gwyneth Paltrow making a comeback after four years (her character's name is Pepper Potts... another one of Stan Lee's amazing alliterations, à la Peter Parker and Bruce Banner). Everyone's saying it's a sure blockbuster. And yes, the Black Sabbath song 'Iron Man' does play at the conclusion.

Here's the link again.
