One Sentence: A great start to the summer movie season.

I knew nothing about Iron Man, well except the suit and his name was Iron Man.  I am not a comic book nerd as I have said before, but I do enjoy a good story, and well this one, in movie form was a great story.  As I always say, I don't care about how it is portrayed compared to the comics, I only care about it in movie form.  With this movie I am happy to report, that it is well worth the ticket price that you will all pay for this weekend.  

There are so many things that make this movie worth seeing and paying for.  Just the beautiful CG for the Iron Man suit is amazing.  It looks real, it looks like it is actually there, and it is completly convincing.  The fights, the flying, the suits, the technology, all of those advanced ideas and the execution of them in this movie are completly flawless.  It just looked amazing.  This alone is worth it.  Yet there is so much more to get excited about.

The story, acting, and Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr. makes you love and want to know more about this man.  The movie is action packed, interesting, has a solid story, and in some parts, funny and sweet.  Just light dashes of it here and there that really fill out the movie.  It captured my attention from the very first scene and only a few small parts of the ending did was I not 100% enthralled with the movie.  This movie is a great start to the summer movie season and I can only hope that all the others are as good as Iron Man, have fun watching it this weekend, I hope you liked it as much as I did.

    Great review as always. (great = I agree with it LOL)
