Well i saw it last night... i was dragged there by some friends...
It was an alright movie.
It wasn't bad.
I never was into Comic books, at all... so... i didn't have any backstory on the movie. Or the comic... so each portion of the movie was fresh... I
alo managed not to watch the comerials for it... other then just a few times... But thats cause i dont watch much TV...
I would recomend watching this on TV if you see it there... not worth owning though... i doubt there would be much replay value unless you are a
ironman comic freak.
I think the movie tied the story into modern day as good as can be expected, without going into details...
The movie can be an interpretaion of some kind. The whole sotry of a weapons expert being shot/killed by the weapons he makes is somewhat of a decent
I knew that the Guy was a traitor from the moment his name was said... and when the bad guy got into his suit of armor, his voice became like a
possed-ogre-demon which was perhapes the lamest moment
The F-22 was in the movie a Bunch of times... that was cool to see... i guess... except it shot a bunch of Machince gun bullets at a target... and a
F-22 Crashed... which doesnt/inst going to happen ever...(except for that one time during testing a few years back)
The news room and podium parts of the movie were intresting...
One thing to point out, one person that i was with said that the Friendly guy, who is with The Main Charecter when he is imprisoned by Islamists in a
cave, that he was a Chiense person in the comics, but in the movie is portryaed as just a friendly local person... Did the movie change this to keep
China out of the movie? The guy also listed a list of languages that he spoke, and it did not include either Chiniese dialect... Thats just a personal
There was just a little bit of drinking in the movie... if the main charecter was suposed to be a major achohalic, then i don't think they showed
that, but he did have a drink in his hand a good portion of the movie...
The movie was also about 2 hours long... which was just right... and i used my student ID and saved .25 cents... yea...
Oh, and after the credits, what was that, i thought it was Morphes... from the matrix... but someone said something about the avengers...
I thought the Avengers was a film from the last 25 years or something... a movie my parents had...
