Iron Man is (yet another) comic book movie drawing from Marvels vaste libary.
Unlike most, however, it stands up not just as a great comic book movie, but a great movie period. In my view, its the best comic book movie since Batman Begins.
It shares much in common with Batman too; The filming style, the rich main buisness-man charecter, and the serious events that lead to a heros rise.
Unlike batman however the film is very,very funny. And in a good way. It has a good laugh every few minutes, without damging plot or charecter development.
The pacing of the film is also spot on. (something the Spiderman films could never get right).
Finaly, there is a fantasic after-credit bit which most comic book fans will consider a jaw-dropping moment.
Overall a must see, for fans of comics, or just great films.,
