The Marvel universe just keeps on expandin, the Stan Lee comic book superhero big screen translations seeing no end. Where Spider-Man was hit and miss for me, and the two Hulk movies had varied reception, with Iron Man all of the elements fell in place - from the story and special FX, to the choice of Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark the once unscrupulous techno-savvy businessman who becomes Iron Man.
The big screen conversions of these popular comic book superhero franchises speaks to many generations, the advances in digital technology further boosting the out-of-this-world characters and situations. Talented actor Robert Downey Jr.’s career takes a whole new turn with his role as the industrialist Tony Stark who has justified to himself that the weapons he has created is in fact used as protection, not attack (costing countless innocent lives in numerous countries). When he is wounded and taken captive in Afghanistan, his mind shifts after busting out, and he becomes a protector of righteousness encased in a high-tech suit of armour. The best way to enjoy this spectacular ride is in High Definition, and this Blu-ray release not only justifies the pristine picture and audio quality, but also gives you hours of additional material from deleted scenes to extensive making-of documentaries on two loaded discs.
