Amazingly, I managed to avoid learning much of anything about Iron Man before seeing it (even though I had to avoid friend's blogs to do so). And I was trying to keep my expectations in check -- I've been hearing that it's great, but I didn't want to dislike the movie just because it couldn't live up to an inflated standard. If you're the same way and haven't seen it yet, stop reading now, because I'm about to rave!
ZOMFG! Iron Man is awesome! There's enough emotional depth that you don't feel dumb for watching a super-hero movie, and enough action that you don't feel cheated in your super-hero movie. And Robert Downey, Jr. is all sexy and snarky, even in the midst of his redemptive journey. Whee! Squee! Yay!
