One of the movies that I was really excited about was Iron Man. An icon from my years growing up in Kuwait, he was a favourite comic boon hero to thousands of us kids. The movie, although has done very well and been given good reviews, has disappointed me. I don’t see much thought gone into the plot. Hindi movies have similar plots to the age old father figure who is actually bad & trying to get the hero killed; hero almost wiped out by a similar looking designed suit. Let me tell you this though – Robert Downey Jr was the perfect actor for this role. I initially had my doubts about Downey being a super hero type but he nailed it. And he showed the character’s flaws which is the best part – makes the Iron Man look human. Tony Stark is egoistic, power driven and full of himself. He also loves women!

The suit is awesome and some of the special effects are fab – the best sceans are when Stark is testing his new suit. Gwyneth Paltrow is wasted in a “pretty kitten secratary” role (come on) where she has exactly time to show 12% of her acting ability. Jeff Bridges looked perfect as the main villain – until I heard his voice after donning the Iron Monger suit! Typical big bad man voice and dialogue.
thin line between love and hate a dvd I’ll rate this movie 7/10 (but mostly for the effects) and I think I’ll watch it a couple of more times but I really don’t see it becoming my a favourite. By Febuary-March this dvd will probably start collection dust and lie unused in a corner of my cupboard. I hope the sequels are better.
