Iron Man the movie

Thanks to Eyeris who managed to source a pair of extra tickets for Iron Man last night, I got to watch this show before the official release this weekend. Before you ask, the movie is awesome and totally kick ass, you have to watch it when it comes out this weekend. Now lets proceed to a bit of a “review” that might or might not contain spoilers, read at your own risk.

Iron Man the movie
Tony Stark’s first armour

For those who didn’t grow up with American comics (ie: me, I was reading Chinese version of Doraemon and Lau Fu Tze), Iron Man has his super power not via genetic mutation nor being born on some other planet. Instead, somewhat like Bruce Wayne in Batman, Tony Stark is an industrialist who archive superpower-hood via his engineering brilliance. If you haven’t figured it out, he built the freaking armour that allows him to fly, shoot people, carry heavy loads, etc etc.

Iron Man the movie
2nd version in the making

The story doesn’t stray very far from the typical superhero movies, with the introduction of the main character as an ordinary person to the transformation that makes him a superhero to the final fight with the super villain. The difference is, of course, Robert Downy Jr. fits the profile of Tony Stark perfectly, and Gwyneth Paltrow played a brilliant role in being Pepper Potts.

Iron Man the movie
awesome or not?

Then there’s the absolutely awesome CG that blends it perfectly while bringing the awe factor not any less than Transformers. You’ll love the movie, watch it!

  11. Dabido (Ironing Man)

    Aw, you ruined it by telling me he was made of iron!!!! Wonder if he can do my ironing super fast. 🙂

    I believe superheroes who fall into the Batman / gadget type genre are called Gadgeteers. Similar to the Green Hornet and others. So Tony Stark [who was black in some of the comics] is a gadgeteer [as well as an industrialist]. I seem to remember he was often paired with Thor in a few comic books [I think they’re friends as both super heroes and as people in the ones I read].

    I guess they didn’t give Ironman nostrils to keep Robert Downy Jr off the Coke! [No offence to RD Jr. When I saw he was playing the role it was enough to make up my mind to see the movie.] 🙂

  12. My favourite Marvel comic is The Amazing Spider-man. But will watch this too. Marvel comics rocks.

  13. Yatz,
