I've Seen IRON MAN

"Oh, no. Major methane leak. Activate flatulence fans!"

What do you get when you mix Robo Cop with Transformers? You get Iron Man. Iron Man came to be when the billionaire inventor, Tony Stark, was kidnapped by Afghani rebels and had to utilize his ingenuity to build a suit of armor from scratch to facilitate his escape.

It was exhilarating watching the Iron Man suit in action, whether it was flying at super sonic speeds or blowing things up.

It's hard to believe that a few mere years ago Robert Downey Jr. was a junkie breaking into people's houses. Today he pulls off the character of Tony Stark/Iron Man rather handily. Gweneth Paltrow was also quite good as Stark's loyal assistant, Pepper Potts.

There are no underlying lessons to be learned in this movie, other than when you become a billionaire be sure to install a stripper pole in your private jet. Iron Man is a flick definitely worth paying full price at the theater for and buying the DVD when it becomes available.
