The much anticipated movie, Iron Man, has finally reached Qatar cinema. My family (consists mainly of my dad and cousins) were so excited that despite the long queue for Iron Man movie tickets, we decided to watch it on its second day of showinga FRIDAY! The lines were so long and crowded you might think it would never end.
We arrived at 2:50PM and decided to watch the 3:45PM schedule. However, the nearer we get to the counter, tickets for every scheduled time becomes sold-out. 3:45PM… 4:30PM… 5:30PM… 6:30PM… 8:15PM —ALL SOLD OUT! Luckily,
I guess when we reached the counter, there were still four seats left at the 4:30PM schedule and we decided to take it even if we have to crane our necks up since we’re going to be sitting in the very first row.
First of all, hats off to Robert Downey Jr. for he is just FANTASTIC! He epitomizes Tony Stark/Iron man so well that he’s just perfect. He’s just like what Johnny Depp is to his Captain Jack Sparrow character. I probably won’t be able to see anyone else play the part.
As for the movie, it was a 100% entertaining. I especially love the funny and awkward moments — they add that certain spice and charm that is very unique to this particular Marvel movie that I don’t feel with the other Marvel ones
I like the annoying stupidity of the characters sometimes, Tony Stark included (ofcourse!), and the unexpected twist concerning the eccentric villains. I also like the coolness of having more than one Iron Man suit — that was real splendid.
On the other hand,
SPOILER ALERT: I still can’t get over the fact that he destroyed all his Iron Man creation. WHY would he do that?!? Will there be no more Iron Man movies? Is it the final one? Cause that is seriously NOT COOL! I have to admit that among all Marvel movies, Iron Man is my favorite.
Anyway, if you haven’t watch it, I suggest you do. Plus don’t forget to finish it until the end credits. Why? there’s an amusing conversation between Tony Stark and Dr. Banner (aka THE HULK) at the very end. Apparently, Tony Stark thinks he’s talking to a shrink, which is kind of funny because not only is Dr. Banner not one, but he is also not listening. HAHAHA!
So overall, in a scale of 1 to 5, I give it 5 stars! Ok I’m biased! 🙂
