"Iron Man" was a good movie. Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwenyth Paltrow are very good. The action is good. The plot is original. But, despite the hype, it's no masterpiece. I feel like everyone I know saw a different movie than I did, and here's why: despite the actors, the characters feel slightly one-dimensional, the 'villain' element to the plot is laughable and feels like an afterthought, and finally, it just didn't feel profound. It's better than some summer action movies (Transformers 2, Indiana Jones 4), but isn't nearly as good as others (Watchmen, The Dark Knight). I don't want it to seem like I hated the film, just that it's not all that it's cracked up to be. The content is fairly mild, save for some action violence and witty sexual innuendos.
