Wow, very impressive !!!!

WOW WOW WOW.

This is the movie I have been waiting for for a very long time. I am an avid Ironman reader. I have collected the comics all my life (from #1 in 1968 to the latest in 2008)...40 years of Ironman. Since I was a kid, I used to say to my friends that they should make an Ironman movie, but everyone laughed and said that the special effects would look ridiculous...mind you, that was back in like in the early 1980's. But, now we are in the age of CGI, and what an age it is. Just for you Ironman fans, to see him come to life with such spectacular graphics is reason enough to spend your hard-earned $10. The plot is also pretty well thought out, and the acting is just fine. What better pick could you have for Tony Stark than Robert Downey Jr.? (just wait for the sequels when they can delve into his alcoholism...Mr. Downey has been there and beyond...that's probably why they chose him for the role...fore-thought)The rest of the cast is right on par, as well. The pace is brisk, and the whole thing works as a great addition to the Marvel Universe in the Cinema!! Enjoy!

A Solid Beginning for What Would Become the Most Successful Franchise on Earth

Iron Man establishes a strong base for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is a well-written, self contained story that doesn't try too hard to establish plot points for the future of the cinematic universe, but instead focuses on itself. The result is a great movie. RDJ as Tony Stark is possibly the best casting choice ever done for a comic-book movie, and so is Jeff Bridges as Obadiah. The story is flows well and serves perfectly for the development of our main character. While there are two main plots, the story successfully merges the two into a tidy, clean result that barely leaves any mess. There is a slight disorder in the tone. While sometimes the movie would feel too dark and the next minute it's all jokes and loud music, the movie makes good use of this lighter tone at times to establish the character of Iron Man.

Appreciable and proper kickoff for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Best one among the Iron Man Trilogy.

****THIS REVIEW IS EXCLUSIVELY FOR NON COMIC BOOK READERS****

Ten years and 17 films later, this still is one of the best films MCU has ever produced. Not to mention that this is, for me, the best among the Iron Man Trilogy, many would still have it on top 5 of their MCU movies. I am not an exception at all. MCU has produced many films, but they merely serve an entertainment value. Not bad (most of them), but once you watch them, you forget them. This is one of those "unforgettable" MCU films.

The reason it works well, even to this date, is that it doesn't feel like a build-up for something else. It is a standalone film. Despite being a part of a much bigger universe, it is still quite distinctive. Unlike the present day MCU movies, this one doesn't have unnecessary cheesy one liners. Stark is a d****ebag, you can expect sarcasm, and those sarcastic parts fit really well. The humor is not overdone to death. Quite a "rare" thing in an MCU film nowadays. The action sequences are pretty appreciable. Most of them provide the necessary characterization to Stark as Iron Man. The flow of the story and specially the character arc of Tony Stark was excellent. It allows us to actually get along with the character and the changes in him regarding responsibilities and becoming a "good" guy, obviously retaining the d****ebagery. His motives for becoming Iron Man is thoroughly explained by the film through a proper storytelling. This makes it a good character story. Also, the way he becomes Iron Man, all the stuff he does to accomplish are pretty impressive, making it a good superhero origins story. The Potts and Stark romance were sidelined for good, it didn't feel unnecessary. It was an okay side story. The build-up for a bigger universe that we got were present, but were only in some minor scenes or the post credit scenes, which made the film the way it is.

That being said, it has a defect which is common to almost every MCU film - a one dimensional undercooked villain. The villain was really really underwhelming. It felt really like someone trying to shove him down our throats for a finale fight a superhero film is bound to have. The purpose behind all the action in the final part wasn't backed up by a solid storyline. It really felt forced. This part of the film was a letdown.

Robert Downey Jr. is great as Tony Stark/Iron Man. I don't think anyone will ever replace him as Iron Man. Also, Terrence Howard as Rhodey is way much better than Don Cheadle. I still wish he wasn't replaced. Jeff Bridges is good in his part, so is Gwyneth Paltrow.

Score : 8.5/10

Grade : A
