Give Us Your Opinion of This Movie!

My Review:

The first blockbuster of the summer season opened strong, and set records.  Robert Downey Jr reprises his role as Tony Stark, megamillionaire and owner/inventor of the Iron Man suit that has been keeping the world safe and at peace.  But it comes with a price – Tony’s own health is suffering, so he has to find a solution to this problem before his time runs out.

Sam Rockwell is the comic relief this time around, and Mickey Rourke is the villain – an evil scientist who seeks revenge on Tony.  Gwyneth Paltrow is the love interest, once secretary and now CEO.  And Scarlett Johansson is the new mystery woman.  Don Cheadle takes over the role of best buddy.

Interesting premise – but when it all comes down to it – it’s still a comic book come to life.  There’s all the predictable elements, including the big show-down at the end with all the iron man’s fighting in an over-the-top display of metal on metal. Sorry, but… yawn.
