I really wanted to watch this movie to see how they would handle the character, the suit, the bit-players and let's just say this movie turned out to be pretty good.

The movie starts off with a bang, there are a few flash-backs and then it dives right in. The pacing is taut and even with a dip here and there, Robert Downey Jr keeps things rocking. He is PERFECT for the role and his one-liners and humor really lend something to the character.

The various gadgets and explanations of different components of the suits is handled adequately and the cgi is really realistic. I have a feeling that very few people will mind the suit. Terrence Howard is excellent again, although extremely underused. Paltrow is adequate but I smell a sequel with her role explored further.

There are plenty of protagonists to deal with but fortunately for us all, things are kept somewhat simple and the range of baddies is limited.

This summer movie season is starting off early and with a bang people :)

Give this one a go :)

4/5 OSNN stars.

This movie rocked. Was well acted from all points, The build up to the actual fighting was not boring. It had good humor, some tongue n' cheek which was not over the top.


I really enjoyed how he (Robert Downy Jr.) showed (facial closeup) that scared but at the same time excited emotion when he was doing the test flight. And he really showed that arrogance of Tony Stark. Crash landing in the desert was cool. :D The "I'm gonna kiss you, no I'm not" awkward moment at the Fireman's Fundraiser Party was interesting it could have been explorer further during the course of the movie. Although it did leave the door open for the next installment as to a more than professional relationship. As long as Gwyneth Paltrow reprises her role. She was good.

I loved the movie and am SO glad that RDJ didn't kill himself with those stupid antics that lasted way too many years. I think he's a bright talent and was perfect for the movie!!

I did have to ignore the uhh "technical" aspects, but it was fast-paced, well-written, and fun, if predictable.

Stay through all the credits at the end for a little treat.

So, I was never into these Marvel comics. I was more an "Archies" kinda reader.

Ant Man seems to require some research. Sounds a bit icky and like at risk from Spidey.

Who gets your vote for Thor? Please, not Brad Pitt (tho he'd be wonderful, I'm sure ...).

I know there's a new Hulk coming out. What about the other Avengers?

Anyone annoyed at this continued trend of comics-to-film? I like it. Strongly prefer it to the video-game-to-film approach.

Have you not seen "Adventures in Babysitting?" If this was 15 years ago I would say Steve Mcmichaels former defensive takcle for the Chicago Bears. He was huge, and had a long blonde ponytail.
Puhh-lease Brad Pitt could no more do Thor than he did Achilles, terrible casting, just terrible.

-- not seen Adventures in Babysitting, no.

-- you thot the problem with Troy was casting? ... I've never seen Pitt so awful, and nobody else was any good, either, so I was assuming it was the writing and direction.

-- Perris for Thor ... I'll ponder THAT a while :)

incredible hulk "Ed Norton"/
Ant-man Movie most likely the wasp might come from this movie as a pair.

We already have Iron-man so I figure the Nick fury cameo at the end of the movie will follow the comic to unite the following mentioned above to battle the bad guys.. I am thinking the Kree Skrull war in the making

I am a comic book geek and have been since I could read. I used to collect them ,not anymore. too expensive . My fav are silver age marvel
