Default Re: The Official Iron Man Rate & Review Thread

Alright, my small review.

First: I liked the structure of the film. Good pacing, but a few times I felt like it was moving a little too fast. With Mark 2, for example. Suddenly he's in the suit. I would have liked to see more of the creation of it.

The acting is very good. Robert Downey Jr is great as always. He really embraces the part and is an excellent Tony Stark. Gwyneth Paltrow is charming and actually useful to the story. I am a big fan of Jeff Bridges and he's great in IM. I wasn't too fond of Terrence Howard; it's a stupid argument, but I don't like his voice. He didn't really impress me. There's a little cameo for Favreau as well.

I expected to dislike the score by Ramin Djawadi, but it works well in the film. It's no John Williams, but like I said, it's works.

Finally, the special effects. I can tell you: they're fantastic. You can't tell where the SFX are, and that's probably the best compliment you can give Industrial Light & Magic.

A free tip:

Stay until after the end credits.
