Iron Man

A Movie ReelIron Man: 8 out of 10.

Like the rest of you, I thought I'd see Iron Man before I saw The Dark Knight.

I didn't know Jon Favreau had it in him. This is quite a step up from Elf. Iron Man is precisely the kind of action movie I like. It's smart enough to be interesting, funny enough to induce a few chuckles and not so inside that non-comic book fans can't enjoy the ride. You can rank this up there with Spider-Man II and X-Men II as a great comic book adaptation.

Next up: The Dark Knight.

Dark Knight and Ironman are the 2 best action movies - ever! I usually have no time for action movies, preferring plot driven, well acted and well directed movies but these 2 are head and shoulders above the other crap that usually dominates the weekly top ten viewed movies.

I don't get the grade either.

Isn't that a good score?

I normally get bored by action movies, but this one kept my attention. I thought 7.5 for an action flick was good!

It's fair; that's what I'd give it. I LOVE RDJr. & I wasn't blown away (no pun intended) by it; nor TDK. I guess I heard too much hype.
