Top Notch Entertainment!,
This review is from: Iron Man (2-Disc Ultimate Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
When I first heard that Iron Man was going to get the big-screen treatment, I have to admit to feeling a touch apprehensive; he was always my favest as a kid and the adaptations of Spider-Man, Superman, Fantastic Four, Hulk etc, for me, have been far from great.
So with a bit of trepadation I sat down to watch. What relief!
I'll admit I'm a Robert Downey Junior fan, so when I heard he'd be playing Tony Stark, I thought perfect. He's got the chat, the charm, the charisma, and he puts all 3 to use brilliantly.
He's helped by a very sharp & snappy script, and some great supporting performances; Bridges especially, who doesn't get too much screen time unfortunately, does make an excellent bad-guy!
The plot and story are good enough both to introduce the casual viewer to the character and not to bore the fans.
Out of all the big-screen-makeovers I've seen (barring Batman I guess) this & Transformers is heads & shoulders above the rest, so enjoy!
