Downey acquits himself well enough during the action sequences in 'Iron Man,' but there just aren't enough of them and the existing ones could use a boost.

Sporting a novel brand of swinger superhero, Iron Man's got goofy Robert Downey Jr. wisecracking his way through unlikely feats and fantasy politics, with all the determination of someone who just wandered in from the corner bar.

Light on both CGI and moral quandaries, [it posesses] neither the zip and sparkle of a Spider-Man nor the brooding existential subtexts of Batman Begins.

Iron Man ... is really a four-act play in a three-act movie.

...suffers from an uneven and increasingly oppressive structure that ultimately negates the film's few positive attributes...

Hoping to blend comic book superhero thrills ... with the relevance of the real war-torn world, 'Iron Man,' directed by Jon Favreau, fails at both endeavors.

Why did Iron Man seem so slight to me when I've watched it on my computer? Quite possibly these "event" pictures need a huge screen and a pounding sound system to convince viewers of their worth.

There's a slightly depressed, going-through-the-motions feel to the entire show.

Downey's unbeatable charisma makes these problems less troublesome than they would be otherwise, but wouldn't it be nice if they didn't exist at all?

Toggling between Stark's impish goatee and Iron Man's full-metal body condom, and amid so many generic fireballs, kill shots and earsplitting thumps, bumps and crunches, the film finally collapses under its own weight.

Despite the convulsively jittery address to the role, [Downey] is never in the smallest degree engaging in the way director Jon Favreau appears to think.

Though he's been given A-list treatment...Iron Man can't escape being a little--dare I say it?--tinny....It doesn't crash, but it doesn't soar, either.

When Iron Man is zooming above bejewelled southern California, I expected a thundering lyricism but instead settled for some routine CGI stunts. I suppose it's asking too much for a great actor to be matched up with a great director.

Garden-variety pop heroism/wish-fulfillment marinated in Robert Downey Jr.'s effortless insouciant sauce.

Iron Man is a dispiriting attempt to apply superficial principles to inherently silly kid culture.

Iron Man is better when Robert Downey Jr. is alone on the screen than when he's sharing it. It's when those inconvenient other people show up that the movie loses its way.

Indeed, the entire script is a thing of beauty. Stark possesses a bone-dry sense of humor that reveals itself throughout the film.

If anyone doubted Marvel's ability to make the leap to full fledged studio, their first effort, Iron Man, should be enough to erase all doubts.
