First of all, ladies and gents, let’s welcome Robert Downey, Jr. to the Hot Old Man club.
Iron Man is like geek action porn. It doesn’t get better than this movie, in my experience of awesometastic, brain exploding worthy action flicks. It’s pretty and it’s got explosions and hot-ass Robert Downey, Jr.; it’s got a fantastic baddie in Obadiah Stane who’s played by THE Dude. I mean, do you get better than this? They even found a way to make Gwyneth Paltrow not completely annoying.
I could rehash the plot, but that’s unnecessary. I could highlight the best parts, but that would spoil it for you. Needless to say, I bought it unseen and it was worth every last penny.
In short: GOD BLESS JON FAVREAU.
