Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A supremely confident, well-tooled entertainment. It's bound to be the early pace-maker for the oncoming glut of summer blockbusters.
Fresh: Iron Man is an action sci-fi blockbuster extravaganza that provides cartoon thrills for thinking people. It's the best movie of its kind since the second Spider-Man movie four years ago.
Fresh: Downey could have taken a tragic tack. But he has fun just figuring out how to make the armor suit work. His sarcasm and almost drunken Tony Curtis body language transform the scenes of Iron Man.
Fresh: Actually feels like a classic comic book: fast, furious and flip. Forget about superheroes with love problems and tortured souls.
A Surprise Orign Film Like Never Before
I along with most people weren't ecited for Iron Man. Mostly because most of us weren't familiar with the superhero at the time. So in our little minds, we think this is going to be a realy bad superhero film. But I went into this film with an open mind and what we got, we got an fanstic comic book film.
The story follows Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) a genius, billionar, playboy, philantophist who has inherited the defense contractor Stark Industries from his father, is in war-torn Afghanistain with his friend James Rhodes (Terrence Howard) to demonstrae the Jericho Missile. When Stark got realy wounded by one of his misslies, he then got kidnapped by the terroist group the Ten Rings. Then Tony has an electromagent garfied into Stark's chest by fellow captive Ystien (Shaun Toub) to keep Stark from reaching his heart and killing him. Ten Rings leader Raza offers Starks freedom by make the Jericho for the group. But Tony and Ystien wii not keep his ofter. Stark and Ystien made an arc reactor to keep Tony live. Tony want to make a suit of armor to help him ecsape. So Tony made the suit, destory the Ten Rings, and ecsape. But when Obadiah Stane Tony's father old partner and the company's magager (Jeff Bridges) wants to kill Stark, Tony must use he's suit to make it better and to stop Stane.
Jon Favreau did an amzing job of bring Iron Man to life. He so took the comic and make it look like we just watch this frist time. The wrtting work so well with the actors with their roles. There's a lot of devopment into the wrting and made realte to the comics. But of couse the main that people loved this film is Robert Downey Jr. He killed it as Tony Stark and Iron Man. I couldn't see any other actor to take the role. He brings so much devopment and emotions into Tony and make you relate to him real esay. The rest of the actors did vey well, Jeff Bridges, Terrence Howrad, Gwyneth Pallow all did an amzing job with their roles.
Iron Man is one the most surpise and best superhero films of all time with it's great story, amzing acting and great wrting. If you people want a fun superhero film, then this the one for you.
