Just got back from it.
Pretty kickass in terms of mindless summer blockbuster fun...special effects were unreal. Some of the scenes with the suit I couldn't tell if it was CGI or real
A lot of funny moments also.
I think the first half or 2/3rds was much stronger than the last portion but it was good overall nonetheless.
Oh, and audi dominated the film
I Loved it. it was fun, exciting and kept me smiling. A good opener to the summer movie season.
Just posted in the comic forum. Movie was great
if you didn't stick around til the credits were done you got mad :Owned: and missed something fucking AWESOME
daaaaaaaamn. i didn't stick around i'm full of fail and aids. now i have to see it again.
i liked it a lot. but somehow i didnt think it was spectacular
me and the gf were not leaving until after the credits
It was only OK. I gave it about a B-, but my fiends all liked it more than me.
Spoiler: I didn't know Nick Fury was black.
And they have signed up Robert Downey Jr. for a 3 movie deal.
Paltrow looked the best I have ever seen her.
Our theatre was about 75% full & I expect it to win the weekend.
Saw it today and I really enjoyed it. The effects were top notch and RD Jr. is probably the most dead on as far as casting in a comic book movie so far.
seriously, he portrayed Stark as He appears in my head. Fast on his feet, quick witted and hillariously sarcastic.
I think Fury is black in the Ultimate Marvel series .
Edit: I think they casted him extremely well for the look
I was really disappointed
the sequel is gonna be a cheese-fest
the "ultimate" Nick Fury was modeled after Samuel L. Jackson, in fact they asked for his permission
I know, right? Jaw-dropping. So beautiful.
Ugh, so good. Just wish it had more action.
i'm not a big comic book movie guy, but my g/f is. i loved it. She did too
to this movie best ive seen in a while
plus terrance howard is gonna be war machine!!!
"Next time, baby."
BEST comic book movie to date other than Batman Begins.
Iron Man, War Machine, Nick Fury.
Or did you really mean Batman Returns back in Keaton's day with the Penguin?
Iron Man was awesome. If a friend wants to go check it out, I'd go again.
I don't really agree with the populus on this one. I'm not going to say it was a bad movie, because it wasn't, but it seemed like the movie moved extremely slowly, and a great deal of what happened really didn't need to happen, they could have been doing something more interesting. A more appropriate name for the film would have been "The making of Iron Man's suit," since literally 60% of the screentime is Tony Stark working on the various stages of the suit.
There really wasn't that much action to speak of, and most of the good stuff was in the trailer. An all-action trailer implies an action-packed film, and that is not what we got. We got a character study. The entire time I was waiting for action scenes that were going to blow me away, but none of them did, again because they either weren't particularly amazing, or they were in the trailer.
It was just a let-down. Bad? No, but the best movie of the year so far it isn't. It really didn't need to be over two hours, and a great deal of the 'plot' really just wasn't necessary. And, obviously, it needed more action.
You were the one that didn't like Transformers, too, though. Right?
