OK, here we go again. IRONMAN is a fun movie. Mostly because so much of the movie is NOT spent on the superhero. The first half hour is about a prisoner of war, the next half hour is about a scientist/engineer. The script is very well written, and the casting is superb. Putting real actors into a comic book movie almost makes it believable.
I particularly enjoyed the cameo by the brass rat.
By the time you reaize it's a superhero movie, you've fallen love with the characters and brought the premise enough that you have no problem with the film.
It's also one of the best sounding films I've heard this year.
Excellent work, and highly recommended, if you haven't seen it yet!
