First, a question: Why wasn't there already a thread for this?! Too busy playing GTA4? Go watch it now, and for the love of sweet merciful crap, stay through the credits!!

I watched this 2 days ago and was thoroughly impressed. Definitely one of the best superhero movies. The main complaint I heard from a reviewer was something he wouldn't have said if he had stayed through the credits. :)

Oh, by the way, I am Iron Man!

I never read an Iron Man comic in my life, but the movie was bad ass! I saw it last weekend. I really wanted to see it due to it being directed by Jon Favreau,(a confirmed comic buff) and staring Robert Downey Jr. The trailers sold me, and the final product wound up better than I expected. It is good to see Robert Downey Jr., back in the spotlight again, and he was perfect for this role, and really MADE the movie as well. Jeff Bridges was no slouch either. I would not mind going and seeing this one a second time.

I'm looking forward to seeing this film. Always liked Iron Man as a kid (along with Spiderman), and from the trailers I've seen so far it looks good.

I wasn't expecting much more than a few one liners and some cheesy battles. I was wrong and I've never been happier about being wrong. (I seen it opening night, btw)

Yeah, that one was pretty good. If someone hasn't watched it yet, indulge me, why haven't you yet?

I just saw it last night, I thought it was excellent.

It totally surpassed any expectations I had for it, and I was expecting one of the best Marvell films to date.

Was the most brilliant comic book movie in a while (I'd say since Batman Begins) It found that perfect balance where it didn't take it'self too seriously while still staying away from the cheese which made it just plain enjoyable. I mean with Spiderman, he's all whiny and they got their fair share of overacting, the X-men turned all emo and lame and the Hulk was just plain terrible. This was Batman Begins quality where I can't think of a single thing I didn't like about it. Great dialogue (downey jr. really did make the movie) great action that kept the focus on the character rather than the explosions, and a really good story.

Saw it twice in two days. Would definately see it again.

SEE!! Damn theaters. I was thinking about staying until the credits were over, but the lights came back on, which usually means that nothing is left but credits. THEY TRICKED ME!!

Samuel L. Jackson is waiting in Stark's house and says he is Nick Fury, director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Says Starks not the only superhero and is now part of a bigger universe. Says he wants to talk to Stark about the Avenger Initiative.

Just your standard leadup into the sequel really. good stuff for sure

yes, Iron Man is one of the avengers, their headquarters are in his tower. :) By the way, anyone catch the hint about War Machine?

So correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't they start filming the sequel to Iron Man before the first was even released in Theaters?

I’m not a big fan of superhero movies, so naturally, I walked in thinking this movie was going to be fairly average. However, I quite enjoyed it despite my reservations.

My only beef with this movie? They only played the start of Black Sabbath’s ‘Iron Man’ in the credits. But then…I left after that, so maybe they played the whole thing after.

I think it’s worth seeing this one, for those of you who haven’t.

Robert Downey Jr. will be making a cameo appearance as Tony Stark in the "new" Incredible Hulk movie coming out next month, apparently. Probably something to do with the "Avengers". (Sorry, I never read any of the comics so I really don't know much about all this, so pardon me for a lack of knowing what the **** is going on. :p)

I thought it was pretty awesome, but somewhat underwhelming because I was expecting a lot more awesomeness when I first saw the trailer. Even though the dialogue, editing, direction, performance, all of it was top-notch, the story felt rather shallow. It felt like a cartoon episode or a comic book story arc more than a movie, I'm afraid. :(

As a movie I liked Speed Racer more than Iron Man, but Iron Man was still kickass. :D

How anyone can like that eye-hemorrhaging abortion of a film more than Iron Man is beyond me.

Excellent, excellent movie! Just the right amount of tounge-in-cheek humor (except for the end...) and flashy action scenes.
El Jack makes a great casting for Nick Fury, because Mark Millar, the creator of the Ultimate version of the Avengers, modeled all of the Avengers after various known actors, with Nick Fury as, you guessed it, Sammy himself. ^^ [Tony Stark was made after Johnny Depp]
Oh, and best Stan Lee cameo ever? =D

I have been waiting for this movie for a long time and it was worth it, better than the Spider-Man movie trilogy! I"m Marvel freak and spazed out after the credits!!!!

That's exactly what I was thinking when the air force guy saw the prototype :).

Well, it's been confirmed that WM does make an appearance later in the series... as early as the sequel if all goes well.. :)
