We finally rented and watched Iron Man last night. It's one of the best comic book movies since X-Men. A lot of cool effects and action. I really liked the story line. The fact that he made the weapons for us that ended up in enemy hands. Makes you wonder how much that actually happens. The story of Tony Stark was also very similar to Alfred Nobel, who created weapons before changing his legacy to that of peace. I think the main message of the movie was "Don't Waste Your Life", which was a key line in the whole change of mind of the main character. Oh, and Robert Downey Jr. has to be one of the best, if not best actors of his generation. I'm glad to see him getting a second wind in his career. Great movie!
