Default Iron Man

Best comic adaptation ever! First off, it's just a really well made film (Jon Favreau of "Swingers" fame directs)...it's well paced and there's a good solid plot. Yeah, it's a little far-fetched that the dude could make his suit right under his captors eyes, but it's a comic book, for Christs sake...suspend your disbelief!

Downey is perfect for the role...brings the right combination of charm and wit and humor while still being believable as a hero. I highly suggest checking it out...there's a killer Indy trailer in the previews, too...I got goosebumps.

now that is some high praise.

a "suit" right under their nose?

of course i thought the original PUNISHER with dolph lundgren was great.

ive seen alot of critics who hate alot of the comic adaptions because they deviate from the original plots (some written before the 70's).

but i absolutely love them. its movies like SUPRMAN that got me into comics in the 1st place.

i remember the height of the comic boom around 90-92 when they were trying to get alot of these scripts to the big screen and studios didnt want to touch them. after the success of BATMAN i was suprised.

as crappy as some hollywood scripts have gotten, im thankful for Marvel and stan lee. to me, these latest adaptions are entertainment in its purest form, and if this is the best yet, i cant wait.

the greatest thing is non comic fans are loving the movies and getting exposed to the depth of some of the characters. unfortunately, comics have always been the bastard child of the art industry. i look at them as literature as opposed to smut rags, and glad to see their stories getting rave reviews.

Obviously they did something right. Second biggest opening ever, and this was supposed to be a down weekend for movies due to the new Grand Theft Auto coming out.

Oh, did I mention the new Hulk trailer? I was one of the few that actually liked the first one (mainly because it was great exposition and addressed the suffering Bruce Banner would have to be going through), and now it looks like it's time for the Hulk to kick ass!

A far as comic based movies go, this one is a hit. I saw the very first showing last Friday morning. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I do not think it's the best comic adaptation though. The Xmen series are all fantastic and IMHO represent the best yet made. That said, I do recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys comics/superhero type movies.

Robert Downey Jr. is the perfect actor to play Tony Stark. He absolutely pulls it off flawlessly.

I rate this a 3.5 out of 4 on my comic book based movie scale. :)

Xmen was great (especially the first one) but none of the comic adaptations was this much fun. It's one of the very, very few blockbuster type movies I've ever seen that actually lived up to the hype.
