Default The Official Iron Man Rate & Review Thread

Yeah, may be a little early, but if you've seen the movie and want to post reviews about it this is the thread to post it in. Saves a lot of room to do it like this instead of everybody making their own thread.

If your review contains spoilers, put it in spoiler tags.

I've read 4 (proper) reviews and it sounds like exactly the kind of film i thought it'd be: an enjoyable comedy action film where you can leave your brain at the cinema door.

Default My review (spoilers, obviously)

Since the official thread is still closed (this could be merged in there, I guess), here's what I thought:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Bloody awesome. Really. It was surprisingly faithful to the material, with the necessary changes here and there, of course. They didn't go into Rhodey's history much and changed some stuff with Obadiah, but they certainly got the essences of the characters. It was a really fulfilling film. Definitely the best comic-to-film movie I've seen and enjoyed.

It has some really great scenes. Downey does great as the sarcastic Tony Stark, although he's less convincing when it comes to the serious stuff. One particular conversation with Pepper (Paltrow) felt a little hollow. Paltrow also did a splendid job. Sadly Happy Hogan didn't get a real role (played by Favreau). What little we got to see of Rhodey was great too. His interaction with Tony is great.

Stane too, wonderfully cast, although he ends up a bit two-dimensional in the end. There's not a lot to make you care for him, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, and the way he goes out is relatively lame. Flinging his arms up in a cheesy supervillain pose while struck with a blast from a reactor core. That leads to another point of contention, by the way: The armour was done beautifully and all the scenes with it are great, but the fight with Stane isn't as action-packed as I'd hoped. Still tense, but less slugfest and more Tony running for his life.


All in all, it was a great movie and one I'm sure you won't regret seeing.

Oh boy, I'd still say at least half an hour's worth. It's especially the stuff with the Mark 1 armor that's a joy to see though.

Didn't stick around after the credits . Multitude of references to SHIELD though. Very awesome.

It probably wasn't intended as such, but it looks kind of corny.

More than half the movie at least. I didn't actually count the minutes.

I'm sorry, but this review is giving me 'Ghost Rider' like deja vu.

harlekin, did you feel an anti-war / anti-US military vibe when you watched IM?

some of the early reviews seem to suggest that that was a subtle theme or tone in the movie......

I'm really excited about the movie, but that might dampen my enthusiasm a bit.......

Similar kinda vibe as the earlier GR reviews.

........like he doesn't want to be the one who says it wasn't as good as the all Hype. I may be wrong, but it's just a vibe.
