Dear oh dear…
If you hadn’t noticed, you might need to know that I was never a big fan of super hero films. The only thing that would keep me watch the super hero film is either sexy actor(s)/actress(es) or a good story line. For example, I watched spiderman because of Kristen Dunst, I watched Wolverine because of Hugh Jackman (obviously), and X-Men first class because the drama (and of course the cute gentleman before he went old and bald).
How about Iron Man?
I like Iron Man because of the character. Tony Stark is a bastard and as you might have known it, girls love jerks. And if I had the chance I would definitely slap him few times before I throw him in the bed, tie him and torture him even more. Rawr! But of course, since I don’t want to change this blog into a journal of my sexual fantasies, it would be better to start reviewing the film.
If it wasn’t because of the character, the story is a little bit sad.
Remember the downfall of spiderman? Where our super hero become soppy and mushy and instead of drama and action and sex, it becomes romance and romantic comedy with a splash of explosions? It came back to the formula “save the girl save the world”, only this time, with a tiny twist (even if I don’t know whether I should give credits to the obviously expected twist).
I don’t think anyone should expect anything so special about this film. However, I enjoyed watching it.
Imagine watching a very shallow chick flick, and you can enjoy without saying, thinking, or hoping anything and just let yourself to be entertained. Of course you would think of many things which could go wrong in the story, and loop hole in the plot, but that is not the point of enjoying this film. It is a film you can only watch when you want an very light entertainment you don’t have to put too much efforts to understand it.
Would I recommend this film to my readers?
That is a very tough question. I would throw the question back to you.
Do you like a light entertainment, which mean a film you don’t need to try to hard to understand the story? Do you like explosions? Do you like chick flick? Do you like Robert Downey Jr? Do you like Gwyneth Paltrow? Do you think Robert Downey Jr is sexy? Do you like assholes like Tony Stark? Are you curious about this film? Have you got bullied by your friend because you are the only one who hasn’t watched this and your life depends on the society acceptance? If your answers are mostly yes, you definitely need to see this film.
But, if you don’t like Robert Downey Jr, or explosion, or illogical story line, or stupid romance, or you want a good and inspiring and film with lots of imagination and twist. Skip this one. Especially your life and your social life isn’t in any danger if you skip this one, you wouldn’t need to spend your 2 hours and some cash to watch it in the cinema now. Or if you change your mind, you can wait until one of the TV station bought the film and show it for free for you. You wouldn’t miss much.
