Iron Man

"Gadget porn," pronounced a review which Alex read to me last week. It certainly has a couple of truly gadgeterotic sequences and these coupled with the very-watchable wetware performances of Downey Junior and Jeff Bridges make Iron Man a fun movie; it's just not as fun or exciting as the trailer had led me to believe.

An overlong set-up phase gives way to a short and simplistic cartoon action phase. If these had been evened out a bit more, I'm sure I'd have been happier that I made the effort to see it on the big screen.

I still think it's one of the best action films I've seen since Batman Begins - although I do agree, it takes too long to get the point but it is still an entertaining film - I didn't feel like I'd wasted several hours of my life unlike some of the films I've seen recently!
