Iron Man (2008) 
One of the Best Superhero Films
4/4 stars

This film met my expectations and more. It's nice to see a superhero film, other than the "Batman" franchise, to feature a not-quite-so-young protagonist--someone who's had experience, who's aged, and who's extremely conflicted. Robert Downey Jr. is perfectly casted because he exudes passion and intelligence. Not only that, he has this fascinating edginess mixed with comedic snarkiness. I've enjoyed his other films because of those features and I'm glad to see that those are highlighted in this picture. The film's core is not its action scenes. It's more focused on how Iron Man emerged. Granted, I'm not as familiar with the Iron Man universe as I am with "Batman" or "X-Men" so I don't know how accurately that universe is portrayed. Still, as a stand-alone film, it's really very good and deserving of a wide audience. This sets the mark of the summer blockbuster season. I'm almost certain that this will have a sequel two or three years from now. Hopefully, the things that are only mildly explored will be featured and the unanswered questions will be answered.
