      To me, Iron Man is one of the top five comic book movies ever made, right up there with Superman I, Spider-man 2, and the Dark Knight. Robert Downey Jr. plays Tony Stark and is the best “alter ego” of any of the super hero movie actors. He understands that when you like the actual guy, that you will worry about him

      and cheer for him when he becomes the hero. Many comic book movies focus more on the superhero costume, weapons, and powers, losing focus on the human element that gives the audience a vested interest in the ultimate outcome.

      Gwyneth Paltrow was wondeful as Pepper Potts, who was an underused character in the Iron Man comic book. Ms. Paltrow brings so much intelligence ...

      • and class to the role, she makes the character her own. She approaches the character in a realistic way, assisting Stark with her wits instead of running around punching the bad guys, all in the name of “girl power!”

        Jeff Bridges was barely recognizable as the main villian, but he gives a deliciously over the top performance dripping with malice. You need a

        strong villian to have a strong movie, and Mr. Bridges definitely delivers.

        Overall, the movie was a bit light on action, but that was understandable in an “origin movie” where the characters must all be established. I expect Iron Man 2 to feature more fights but all of the wit, great acting and humor of Iron Man. I give Iron Man an enthusiastic 10.
