Iron Man is Marvel’s best movie since Spider-Man 2 (though that isn’t really a mighty feat). It serves the mythos well, but does not wallow in it; it creates a charming, captivating Tony Stark; it refuses to shy away from its political message or the complexities of its themes (i.e., “weapons are bad, but I’ve become a weapon”); it’s rollickin’ good fun with a kickass attitude.
Also, Robert Downey Jr. makes my chest hair tingle.
(Really, Bill doesn’t work for Marvel. He would not mind a paycheck, though. Wink wink.)
