Just got back from Iron Man. Loads of fun. Can't think of a better way to kick off the summer popcorn movie season. I don't know much about the comic book, so I'll stick to the movie itself.... Robert Downey Jr. is a hoot. He's one of the few actors talented enough to not take himself too seriously, and not be a distraction at the same time (for further evidence see
Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang). To my surprise, Gwyneth Paltrow is also quite good. Lucky for us, she dropped the pretentious faux British accent. Although we have seen the montage where the super hero tries out his newly discovered powers a million times before, it still holds up well in Iron Man. Make sure to stay thru the end credits!!
