That was awesome. That was simply everything I hoped it would be. And a little more.
If you are the least bit of a fan of this type of movie (action, adventure, and/or super/comic book hero) I would easily say it’s a must see.
Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark is casting at its most perfect. I don’t think I could offer a suggestion for anyone I would rather see in the role or who I think would do a better job.
ETA: Stay until the end of the credits. Mal and NEO (the only two I know who have seen it so far), I hope you stayed. You will especially like it (the end-credits) if you have any knowledge of the comics.
ETAA: I am also glad I stayed for the credits because I found out that Jarvis (the computer system) is voiced by Paul Bettany. I couldn’t put a face with the name at first. But if I hadn’t paid attention to it I wouldn’t have found out from IMDb. He’s not listed there in the Iron Man credits and under his profile he doesn’t have Iron Man listed in his credits. Bah!
