I really liked Iron Man. It had something for everyone. Action, romance, great special effects, super cast, and it was funny. I would recommend it to almost anyone.

When I was a dopey fifth grader, before I discovered girls, I spent a lot of time in my room reading Marvel Comics. I had my favorites. Johnny Flame - The Human Torch, The Silver Surfer, Iron Man, and The Hulk. I have been impressed with what Marvel has done to stay true to the comic genre. This one had so much good going for it from the start that I expected it to be great. It did not disappoint! Robert Downey Jr. does the best acting of his career as Tony Stark, and Gwyneth Paltrow rocks as Pepper Potts! The updated terrorist connection is seamless making me forget who Iron Man fought against in the original comics. Downey Jr. puts enough charisma into Stark to rival Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. The tempo is quick and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Iron Man is an exciting and well scripted revival of the Marvel hero. Now only if they’d get some of these characters together like they did in those special edition comics I loved as a kid. Wouldn't that rock?!

I was skeptical at first being that I never followed Iron Man comics but after reading reviews I decided to go. It was like a breath of fresh air. This is definitely worth going to see.

Esta pelicula contiene muy buenos efectos especiales, pero al mismo tiempo fue muy extensa, ecenas muy largas que se podrian haber evitado, digamos que al comienzo y al final esta muy bien hecha pero repito mala a la mitad

I saw a private screening today, and the hype is for real. This movie is great! Downey Jr. is perfectly cast as billionaire industrialist Tony Stark. I was familiar with the original Iron Man storyline, and the few changes do a good job to update the character and his motivations. Entire cast works well. The technology presented is entirely believable and the CGI blends perfectly with the film. See it!
