Review: Iron Man (2008)

Iron Man kicks off Marvel's Cinematic Universe and provides the first step on the road to The Avengers. And what a first step it is! Iron Man is incredibly good fun but also provides an interesting amount of social and economic commentary as well as comedy to set it apart from many other entries of the genre. Robert Downey Jr. laps up leading role giving a bit of everything from Howard Hughes to James Bond and back to Robocop and Batman. The ever fantastic Jeff Bridges also gives a fantastic turn as the villain of the piece whilst Terrence Howard bores it up as Rhodey, probably a good thing they good rid of him in favour of Don Cheadle for the sequel...
