Iron Man on DVD

Iron Man on DVD. If you’re looking for an action-adventure film with plenty of high-tech gadgets and lots of explosions, then this movie might be for you. However, it pales in comparison to The Dark Knight. Robert Downey Jr. is fine as the title character and he does have some humorous lines, especially early in the film before things turn dark, but his supporting cast is mediocre at best. Neither of the two villains seems especially dangerous and Gwyneth Paltrow’s character flip-flops between being a ditzy redhead and an efficient, gutsy assistant. There is the stereotypical inner turmoil that develops when an ordinary man discovers he can be a superhero. Admittedly, it’s a nice twist when that ordinary man is also the CEO of the world’s largest weapons manufacturing company, but the movie’s message about the dangers of American-made missiles ending up in terrorist’s arsenals is too transparent. The film was so commercially successful that a sequel is inevitable. Here’s hoping that they come up with a better script featuring a more convincing adversary for the hero.
