A film I enjoy every time I watch. Some great action scene's, with some really good jokes and dialogue throughout. Brilliantly directed and Robert Downey Jr. kill's it as iron man.

Back when origin stories were still rather fresh circa 2008, the first Iron Man was quite a treat during its theatrical release. The action is not what makes the film - i found the action to be very pedestrian to be honest - but rather it's the sharp wit and charisma of Robert Downey Jr.'s depiction of the arrogant yet humbled billionaire, Tony Stark. It's Downey's performance along with the on-screen ingenuity of creating the Iron Man suit, is what makes this film great.

Robert Downey Jr makes his comeback roll. Story and characters that we should see grow for future films.

A visually impressive and narratively intriguing origin story, "Iron Man" set a new standard in the modern age of superhero films, and Robert Downey Jr. absolutely nails the man under the iron suit.

The snappy Edgar Wright like dialogue and the fantastic action and performances make up for the pacing issues but a great start to the MCU

This is what started it all. Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark is the sole reason this is the greatest cinematic universe in the history of cinema, and also adds to this greatness of a film

the best way you could have started off the marvel cinematic universe, to make it better maybe have included antman in a later film to get the real and true aspect of how the avengers was put together.

The first half of this movie had purpose, there was a reason for each action. The villain, Obadiah, is pure evil; I just don't understand why? I wish Marvel would learn that villains need characterization too. Otherwise, this movie was captivating with the creation of Iron Man.

One of the greatest superhero origin movies ever! I can't imagine anybody other than Robert Downey Jr. portraying Tony Stark!

one of the best superhero movies ever made.
RDJ knocks it out of the park as Tony Stark. He's a funny character who goes from a playboy weapons maker to a hero with a heart. The effects still look great to this day. I'd even say the cgi is better than most superhero movies today even. The movie also does a good job of balancing the serious moments and comedic moments. It takes itself seriously when it has to and has fun when it's right. No failed attempts of forced comedy in serious scenes (which has become a problem in most modern superhero movies. Not to say humor is bad but there is a time and place for it. And Iron Man does it best). The suits themselves look so amazing. An the action is well shot and looks amazing. The villain could have been a bit better.

Overall, it's a blast.

Pure cheese with all the bells and whistles of CGI thrown in. Tony Stark is a completely unbelievable, arrogant and insincere character and it is quite mystifying to me how so many fans of the film were able to identify with him. Comic book film fans are used to this sort of thing but I thoroughly disagree with the assertion that it would appeal to many people that aren't normally fans of this genre.

This movie was awesome until they had to rush in a terrible 3rd act

What makes this movie special & so good is the passion that has gone into making it. Director Jon Favreau brought to life a character that not known to literally anyone in the world. Marvel usually meant Spiderman and at that time people did not even know there existed to Comic Book Universes (Marvel & DC); let alone who belonged in which. The movie sticks to its purpose, structure a considerable amount of time building a story behind the origin of Iron Man. Why a money hungry weapons manufacturer would suddenly to stop the production of their primary revenue stream. That was done right & we as audiences actually feel for the character. The villain, played by Jeff Bridges still remains as one of the most iconic & cold blooded villains of the MCU since its inception. The choice is right for an origin movie: Iron Man facing off with another Iron Suit Clad Man (just bigger).

La película que comenzó todo, Ironman de jhon fraveu nos trae una adaptación a la gran pantalla de los cómics de Ironman la cual nos cuenta nos cuanta la exitosa, millonaria, y torpe vida de Tony Stark quien es el dueño de la compañía Stark la cual debe su fortuna a la creación de tecnología militar la cual vende a diferentes gobiernos, una de estas tecnologías seria las armaduras mark 46 las cuales pueden ser piloteadas por soldados con la intención de defender la paz, lo cual se sale de control por la llena de fiestas y alcohol de Tony Stark donde se aprovechan estos eventos la venta de esta tecnología a países con intenciones terroristas.
Puntos buenos: sin duda a esta película hay que tenerle un especial cariño ya que está película abrió las puertas a todo un universo cinematográfico basado en Marvel y sin duda Ironman supo como hacerlo; con un casting de actores muy profesionales que se siente muy fresco, ningún actor se siente que exagere su personaje.
Con un soundtrack increíbles que va desde el hard rock con ac/DC hasta el metal con black Sabbath
Y talvez la clave de su éxito que además de ser seria en los momentos serios, Ironman es divertida y su comedia está muy bien echa.
Puntos malos: este es un gran problema que tienen casi todas las películas del universo cinematográfico de Marvel y es el villano, no se siente su motivación, por que hace lo que hace, no se siente como un villano y no está bien estructurado.

In the Marvel universe,, Iron Man is my favorite one! He wasn't born with superpower, he is just a cocky son of a gun and he built his own strength!
Robert Downey Jr is the perfect man for the job! Great start!
