It's now up to 94%!!
If it retains this number it will be the highest rated comic book movie of all time!

Yup, Iron Man needs to get 19 out of every 20 reviews positive to keep its lead on SM2.

Whether it beats it or not, we have our answer... Iron Man is a top quality superhero movie, and has outperformed what all of the naysayers believed.

It'll fall but it is doing better than expected
I would expect it to be mid to high 80s by the time a few more reviews trickle in

Very true but I think beating X2 & BB is in the bag pretty much at this point.

It deserves the rating. I'd get mad if it gets lower than 80%. This film really surprised me.

The more important question though is this: "Where is the SuperheroHype review?".

Surely with Favreau sticking close to the internet community, they're inviting the guys to a pre-screening?

SHH admin has posted and said that he has seen Iron Man, but it appears that his review isn't on the site yet.

I just hope that some critics don't do the eventual (let's hope not) backlash against "a mainstream favorite" just to look cool and angsty.

I'm predicting 93% +/- 2% by the time it gets 100 reviews. Anyone want to take odds?

Ah, thanks... I just scanned back through this thread and see that now... glad to hear he's so hyped about it

I think another promising thing that I see on RottenTomatoes is that the female reviewers are giving it just as much praise as the males. Superhero movies that you can bring your gf to are the best kind.

Another rave. This one from Newsday:

Quote:
You'll believe a multinational billionaire industrialist can fly. More importantly, you'll believe his psychological transformation from hedonistic jingoist to repentant humanitarian - albeit one with a heavily armored fighter-jet suit.

It's that fidelity to emotional truth that makes the Marvel superhero saga "Iron Man" the best comic-book adaptation in years.

My bet is it'll end up at 88%, which is still really good.
