Alex Alemann 10/12/08 English 190 Lori Hoffman wrote a detailed review of the movie Iron Man. Hoffman felt that the movie was cliché and of poor quality. However, I really enjoyed this movie because I am a big fan of comic books. I also believe the main actors did an excellent job making the movie a success. Over the summer this movie was a huge blockbuster and was one of the most successful movies of the year. Hoffman’s believed that the movie lacked energy. I completely disagree with her. Robert Dowing Jr. did an excellent job in his role. He portrayed his part perfectly as an egotistical capitalist. At the beginning of the movie he was confident and arrogant. By the end of the movie he was a changed man who realized that developing the most powerful weapons wasn’t the key to peace. The audience is able to follow the transformation because Robert Dowing Jr. kept the energy up the entire movie.
