I already kinda wrote a review for tis film before but its kinda got deleted or something, so im writing it again *sob*, it could be kinda a good thing I spose as I missed out a few bits so ill start over by saying.........MY GOD, HOW FANTASTIC IS THIS FILM!!!!!!!!
Soz for that outburst but I think it was needed, lol!! This film kicked off the summer blockbusters back at the start of May with a BANG.......and what a BANG! Then the summer of Marval began!
I must admit when I first went to see it back on 9th May, I was kinda like 'we're goin to see Iron Man, ok'....dont get me wrong I wanted to see it but I wasnt overly excited about it.......How blown away by this film was I !! I LOVE and ADORE ROBERT DOWNEY JR, he is such a FAB actor (my fave in fact) and he is superb as Iron Man, i agree, u cant see anyone else playing it, inspired casting! and bout time Rob got his big break!
Robert plays Tony Stark, a billionaire weapons manufacturer (for anyone who doesnt know, lol) who is conflicted about his work after he is captured by terrorists. He has to escape so he builds his first Iron Man suit, from there on the story continues!
Iron Man is full of the right amount of action, adventure, romance and even a bit of politics thrown in! not to mention humour, HILARIOUS HUMOUR! I esp like the funny and quirky relationship Tony has with his robots! The one who keeps wanted to spray him with foam me and my friends named 'Jerky', lol! Plus all the superhero action is so cool, the best part has to be when Tony suits up for the first time in the Mark 3 of his suit........AMAZING!!! Has to be one of my fave scenes! Not to mention when he is flying through the air, 'im driving with the top down!', LOVE IT!! and being an Audi fan, I have to say, YAY for all the Audi's in this film, esp the fab R8!! Love its soundtrack! The Iron Man soundtrack is fab too, hehe!
I have to just go back to talking bout Robert for a sec, I mean, MY LORDIE, well done working on those muscles Rob, I needed a fan for most of the film, *huminar huminar* they certainly had the desired affect! There is also plenty of eye candy for the men too, in the shape of the delightful and charming Gwyneth Paltrow, who is also FAB in this film as Tony's assistant, Virginia 'Pepper' Pots! Love the name!
The rest of the cast is well put together and I cant wait till it comes out on dvd, whenever that will be, been waiting so long now for a date to emerge!
Im also very excited to hear that Iron Man has been kind of the start of a new franchise of films to emerge in the coming years, all linked to the comic books of Marval! Im lovin the buzz around this, I cant wait! For anyone who waited right till the end of the credits of Iron Man, would of seen a little hidden scene which links to the upcoming Avengers movie, not to mention for those of you who have seen the last scene of the recent Incredible Hulk film, where Tony Stark appears and says to the general, 'we're working on something'......IM SO EXCITED!!
Well, till then we know there will be an Iron Man 2, so cant wait for that!!
Robert Downey Jr, what a fantastic actor, I love him!! He is my fave actor of all time, fab in everything and this film is no acception!! Not just that, but Iron Man is now one of my fave films of all time too!!
When this dvd comes out, everyone buy it, you know u want too! I saw this film 3 times in the cinema (I would of gone more but couldnt) and thats not gonna stop me watching the dvd like a billion times, hehe! I actually went to see The Incredible Hulk, for my second time, on the same day as the last of my Iron Man days and me and my pal called it our MMM, 'Marval Movie Marathon'! hehe! We're such dorks!
