Review
Amazing and completely extraordinary, IRON MAN may possibly be Jon Favreau's best movie that he ever directed. It takes on the gained interest from those who are comic book readers of Marvel. The film had splendid action and visuals as well as remarkable acting performances by Robert Downey Jr. who stars as Iron Man and Jeff Bridges who plays a villain in the movie.

While IRON MAN is a pretty enjoyable and a great superhero feature, I stand by my opinion that DC Comics reign supreme to Marvel. I am and always will be loyal to DC.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
