This is the strongest movie from the Marvel Comic Universe to date and if you compare this to both Spider-Man and X-Men this is a far stronger start from the get go. It meshes his origin from Tales of Suspense #39 and the later story lines in the Iron Man Comic as well as Stark’s character flaws of womanizing and alcoholism. Both pretty heady topics for a comic book for kids. Jon Favreau does a great job of directing this but he had help from a great script and super Special effects from Industrial Light & Magic (ILM).
The Cast is all top notch. Robert Downey Jr owns his role of Tony Stark and plays him to the hilt. Jeff Bridges makes a surprisingly good bad guy. Terrence Dashon Howard and Gwyneth Paltrow do great in their supporting roles. ILM co-stars as Iron Man and he looked fairly real for a CGI Character
Watch it till the very end, there is an extra scene with Samuel L Jackson after the credits roll.
STATION. Worth consuming! This is the best Action movie of 2008 so far hands down! Let’s see if Batman can give it a run for its money….
