    This film is great! It has like almost anything you could ask in a movie.

    First of all: Robert Downey Jr. If Batman made me love superheroes, then Iron Man (I actually already saw parts 2 and 3, which I will re-watch) made me love Marvel. And not Iron Man, but Tony Stark. Robert Downey's potrayal of Stark is one of the best thing that happened into a movie screen yet, and he absolutely kills it. I'm not a comic…

    "Tony Stark was able to build this in a cave... with a box of scraps!"

    Jon Favreau's Iron Man is still, for my money, the best film to sit within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From seeing its opening moments for the first time in 2008, Iron Man made an impression as a refreshing new take on the superhero genre. Iron Man is not as overly goofy as the Raimi Spider-man films or as self-serious as the Nolan Batman films but…

    Well directed, well acted, compelling story and villain, impressive sets, great CGI. Oh yeah, it's a Marvel movie too!

    Without resorting to nitpicking, I can't really think of anything I didn't like.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    NOTE: This was originally written for my wordpress in February of 2015.

    The Avengers: Age of Ultron, came out on May 1st, 2015. Iron Man was released on May 2nd, 2008. Seven years may not seem too terribly long, but I can’t mitigate how gargantuous the shifts have been not just in the superhero genre, but in the way we consume entertainment itself. In 2008, Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming services were still taking baby steps. “Binge-watching”, while always a…

    After loving Ant-Man, I decided to go back to the movie that started it all for the MCU and it is exactly as I remember it, tremendous fun. Robert Downey Jr was the perfect choice for the character of Tony Stark and watching him build his different suits was just awesome to watch. Unfortunately, this movie's third act was extremely disappointing. The final action scene was way too long and it just felt so forced. Watching Jeff Bridges and Robert…

    Iron Man was an awesome kick-off to the MCU. RDJ was great as Tony Stark, the action was awesome, it had a cool concept and it was the comic book film that we had been waiting for.

    De film die de hele comic-hype van start liet gaan in de bioscopen, als je het mij vraagt. Dit eerste deel van de Iron Man-films, is stoer, mooi, grappig, spannend, spectaculair. Een comic-verfilming "done right".
    Robert Downey Jr is perfect gecast als Tony Stark, die zich bij iedere film beter in lijkt te leven in dit personage. De film is trouw aan de comic, en verveelt geen moment. Top popcorn-vermaak!

    this is one of the best Avengers set-up movies, the casting is perfect, the action is perfect, but the plot is just a tad boring making for some parts where you kind of fast forward though. RDJ is awesome and he is the perfect choice to be Tony Stark
    I really do love this movie.
