Great movie

This is a really great movie,an action packed adventure that everyone should watch and truly enjoy:)

Awesome!

Was a Great movie! Love the action!

Liked it

At first, I had no interest in seeing this movie. Ironman isn't a character I was familiar with, and beyond Jeff Bridges and Robert Downey, Jr. being in it and both being actors I like, I couldn't get excited about it. But then everyone kept telling me how good it was, even people who wouldn't normally like this kind of movie. I went to see it, and they were right. It was just a fun action movie with some smart lines, and some good messages.

Iron Man

Great movie overall. Love at the end how tony stark says I AM IRON MAN at the end.

awsome

super

Great!

This one is destined to be a classic! Robert Downey Jr. creates a truly memorable character, humorous, ironic and a better superhero than I would have thought possible.

The Invincible Iron Man

This Iron Man movie is one of two superhero origins movies I consider to be great (the other is Batman Begins). Robert Downey Jr. is a great Tony Stark with a lot smart remarks and arrogance who slowly realizes the weight of responsibility after he finds his weapons in the hands of terrorists. The story is intertwined with the events occurring in the Middle East giving the movie some verisimilitude. The lack of a iconic villain the only thing that keeps this movie from being better.

Falls down... repeatedly

Iron Man starts off promising, but loses its way somewhere between the origin story and the "WINK WINK! There Will Be A Sequel! WINK WINK!" moment. What I'm not sure about is whether Favreau got lost in the forest of comic book devotion or in the wasteland of laziness.

Things that are acceptable in movies based on comic books:

* thin plot points that don't stand up to much questioning
* camp
* lingering on CGI of futuristic technology

Things that are not allowed in movies based on comic books:

* breaking the 90 minute rule without cause
* a really atrociously applied bald cap on Jeff Bridges

The main issue I have with this film, though, is one that seems to fall under the 'acceptable' category. "Seems," though, is the key word here.

Every moment shared between Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr. can at first glance be mistaken for camp because of its comic book environment. But soon enough, the viewer is forced to reason that the length and severity of the ridiculousness just does not fit in with the treatment of the rest of the film as comic-book-esque. Could it be that they had to severely tone down the romance to get a specific MPAA rating? No, this is a PG-13 flick. No, this is plain and simple, utterly disastrous writing, and these are actors that know it's simply not worth the effort. Any suspension of disbelief you are able to build up is quickly destroyed during these scenes (that are very close to being 'so bad they're good,' but fail even at that). If the entire movie were as bad as those conversations, you would NEED to own it. If the entire movie were as good as the first half hour, you would consider it fine enough. As it is, though, I'm quite glad I didn't pay $10 to see it.
