Re: Anyone prefer Iron Man over Dark Knight?
Definentely prefer Iron Man. TDK never really explored the idea of how Bruce in the batman suit represented his inner self; it just felt like a gimmick in an average cop movie, with Bruce as just another wimpy "I don't want to be a hero" everyman. While I don't think RDJ exactly became Iron Man (though Jeff Bridges DID become Iron Monger), his Tony Stark had more than enough drive to hold my interest and keep things fun. Iron Man reminds me of how movies used to be, like the old James Bond movies, or the first Mission Impossible. It touches on pertinent subject matter without getting too dour and slugging, like TDK does.
