Iron Man

One of the best superhero/comic book adaptations to date, this movie saw the return to relevance for Robert Downey, Jr. after years of personal troubles that gravely affected his career -- a real pity, considering he is such a good actor.

The movie's production values are overall very high: the acting is good not only thanks to Downey, Jr. but also to Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard and Jeff Bridges; the script is well thought out and fully developed; the visual effects are stunning. In short, the sequel that was ordered right after the premiere is more than justified.

After The Dark Knight, another welcome addition to the seemingly unending series of comic book adaptations.

Grade: 8
