Two hours of awesomeness from beginning to end, director Jon Favreau has done
an exceptional job with Iron Man. It has style, it's exciting, it's funny and
is just damn cool. I mean who wouldn't want unlimited money, fame, ladies,
private jets, and of course a kick-ass flying suit of golden armor?
Robert Downey Jr.'s performance as Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, is excellent.
Gwyneth Paltrow is the perfect Pepper Potts and Jeff Bridges is the dude. When
I get older I want his beard. On top of a smart script with good dialogue,
Robert Downey Jr. Actually ad libs most of his lines. I got the feeling
everyone was just having fun making this movie.
The Iron Man suit is visually stunning. It looks real; it manoeuvres just like
you would expect it to, and it interacts with real world environments
seamlessly. There is no horrible CGI or blue screen bull
cough-georgelucas-cough. The film has a realistic and natural
look about it that makes you believe there is no reason for the technology not
to exist. I wouldn't be surprised to see a real life Iron Man flying around
town, as opposed to say a guy in a Spiderman costume spinning webs from his
Apart from being the ultimate Playboy, Tony Stark is an extremely successful
engineering genius and CEO of his fathers company Stark Industries where Stark
specialises in manufacturing weapons for the military. Stark travels to
Afghanistan to demonstrate a new missile for the US Army called the Jericho.
While in Afghanistan, Stark is captured by a terrorist called Raza (Faran Tahir)
who orders Stark to recreate the Jericho. Stark tells him it can not be done as
he doesn't have the necessary items to create such a missile. However Raza has a
very large supply of weapons made by Stark Industries. Stark has no idea how
Raza has managed to obtain so many of his weapons.
Stark agrees to build the Jericho with the assistance of his cell mate Yinson
(Shaun Toub) who saves Stark's life after he is knocked out from an explosion
which fired shrapnel into his chest. Yinson could not remove some of the small
shards of shrapnel so he implants a magnet powered by a car battery in to Starks
chest to stop the small fragments travelling to his heart.
Stark and Yinson begin to build the Jericho, but Stark has plans to build
something else – a huge impenetrable iron suit fitted with missiles and
flamethrowers. Stark also upgrades the magnet in his chest to sustain itself
with its own regenerating power source – a technology known to Stark
Industries but untested & unused until now. Tony's plan is to escape from
Raza and his terrorist hordes and return to America.
Tony's near death experience in Afghanistan changes his view on his purpose in
life, and upon his return home he cancels his weapons program and opens a new
secret program where he creates the ultimate titanium self powering Iron Man
armoured suit. This is where the film really takes off, literally.
I love this film, it is so much fun and it looks fantastic. I viewed it twice
at the movies and I have it on Blu-ray and Dvd. I also bought the poster; now
all I need is the T-Shirt.
Yeah, I am Iron Man
This is one of the only movies I have watched twice at the cinemas. Having
it released on Blu-ray meant it was a must buy! Iron man has awesome action
scenes and a awesome story line. Great Movie!!
Great film, a perfect starting point for those interested in the marvel and
Find out what it takes to become the Iron Man.
Starts the trilogy off well with a solid foundation of witty humour and fabulous
action sequences. Must have Blu-ray for any Marvel fan!
This movie looks so much better in Blu-ray than DVD! The colours are much
more brighter and brings out more details. Great quality and awesome
Fast shipping, I have seen this movie about 7 times but still
Iron man is an amazing movie, and an amazing story. I bought the bluray
because it's one of those movies you should really watch in high definition.
Animation and suit looks amazing, and the characters are great.
What a good movie!!
Definately one to add to the collection, great price too, cheers
Right from the beginning the story is good, I enjoy watching a movie with a
good story line and this is one of them. Really enjoyable and full of action
scenes – Highly recommend.
Maybe not that many, but it's what made Marvel movies huge… It also
happens to be my top 5 movies of all time. I'm pretty sure most movie-goers
already know about this movie.
Tony Starks evolution into Iron Man handled in an excellent way. Enough of
the canon from the comics to please the existing fan base, with enough modern
changes and personality to snag previously untapped markets. In other words,
even my Mum liked it.
Awesome movie. Highly recommended.
