Awesome franchise film that resurrected RDJ acting career. I’ve been buying his movies ever since.
It is boring but it gives you an introduction to iron man. The ending fight scene was rubbish to be honest, but this movie is from 2008 so.
I absolutely love this movie
BEST MOVIE ON THE PLANET
This in some ways brought me to the "Marvel Universe" via Robert Downey Junior. What a performance, what fun, what a great interpretation this film was and is. Jeff Bridges in a typical post "Starman" era is ok and the big iron suit is ok, but it's Tony Stark all over this film.
This movie is so incredible and not boring at all. There are no dry moments, and it always has something interesting going on. RDJ is such an incredible actor and portrays Tony Stark perfectly. Definitely worth the purchase!
Amazing I just watch endgame this movie gives me so much memories
Thanks for everything, TeamIron4ever
I’m crying after the Endgame
Ten years ago I’ve seen this and I still loved it.
Love love love this movie!!!!
Before I tell you how much I LOVE this movie I just wanted to say how come I can't see any of your reviews?! Anyway I think this is a great movie way to go stark!!!
As the start of not only a Cinematic Universe and film studio, Iron Man was also the start of the title character becoming a household superhero name. The story has elements that all good Hollywood action films are expected to, some impeccable visual effects, great stunt and action choreography, and set pieces, but also a fantastic journey for our main character, which gives it more of a heart. Also, with the acting chops of Robert Downey Jr. there is also a lovely element of humour. Now days, over ten years after this film had set everything up, Marvel is often able to boast big named talent in their films, but this is really where that started too, with the previously mentioned RDJ, but Gwenyth Paltrow and Jeff Bridges were there to build this world too. To cap it all off, there is a very percussion heavy and metallic, almost industrial, in a meta kind of way, sounding score by Ramin Djawadi (now of Game of Thrones music fame). Overall, this is a great start to an even better franchise, with action, character and humour a plenty.
Why is the trailer in Spanish with no English option?
This incredible film is definitely one of the greatest superhero movies of all time!
Thank you Apple for adding this for purchase to the NZ store. After 4 emails and phone calls I have finally managed to add to my IM2 and IM3. Great customer service.
