Review of Iron Man

A bit belated, I know. I watched Iron Man last Monday and was largely impressed - mainly because of the highly charismatic Robert Downey Junior. He fills the role of Tony Stark, billionaire, hellraising, womanising genius exceptionally well. The Iron Man suit reminds me somewhat of RoboCop and the combat scenes were reminiscent of Transformers so therefore it was a bit deja vu. One thing I don't like (and the new Incredible Hulk film seems to be the same - judging from the trailer) is that the hero fights a more powerful version of himself. Think RoboCop II in fact. Having said all that it is a very entertaining film that I would recommend.

Rating: 7/10
(Robert Downey Junior: 10/10)
