I actually wasn’t holding out a lot of hope for Iron Man. Up until now, the only Marvel titles that have been successful have been Spider-Man and X-Men, and even those two lost their bearings by the third installments. Daredevil and Fantastic Four were barely passable, and I still remember the painfully bad attempts at Captain America and Doctor Strange . Even Ang Lee couldn’t keep Hulk from being a snoozer.
So, it is with great joy that I feel like I could watch Iron Man over-and-over. Robert Downey, Jr., is perfect as the boozing industrialist, Tony Stark. I’m not going to waste much space talking about it, because there are a bazillion reviews already saying how much fun it is.
Here’s how the conversation went in our family:
MOM: So, what does it kick?
MOM: How much of it?
PEPPERKAT: OH, SO MUCH!
