Iron Man was the sort of movie that is, more or less, representative of the genre. I had a good time, though it wasn’t a movie to be taken seriously. It’s a comic book movie (arguably not based on the comic books, mind you), and if you approach it that way, it’s not bad. Seriously though, man in a cave, hammers some metal together and welds it at the seams, and suddenly is able to sustain rifle rounds? I don’t think so. I suspended my questions of realism at this point, and things improved markedly under that guise.

Posturing for a sequel (shocker, right?), most of the film is just setting things up, with a highly predictable and action-packed sequence in the end. Will be interesting to see how the follow-ups play out. 6/10.
