tony stark is too beautiful. if you think he is stupid i'll call the police.
Iron Man is still a fun movie to watch that holds up well to the test of time.
I just got this in the mail and unlike the earlier reviews my bluray which I'm using a PS3 to watch works and starts up just fine. I think there was an update that fixed the problem that the bluray had.
Iron Man so powerfull. i don't give you a big review for this. but i loved Iron Man specially Iron Man Mini Bust. I have mask edition and I am so glad have this edition too. why blu-ray don't have a nice edition like dvd.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) military/industrial weapons mogul just finished demonstrating his newest rocket in the Middle East, when he is purloined by ruthless locals with dirty faces and a penchant for power. Who could be behind the dastardly deed? Of course everyone knows it is the last person you would suspect as in any good mystery.
Well as luck would have it, in Starks efforts to escape he invents the fundamental technology for, you guessed it, Ironman. In the process he inadvertently gives the world a new weapon. How can he correct his faux pax?
In his quest for the answers he solicits the help of his very efficient and devoted assistant Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow.)
For those enthralled in the Ironman comics, nothing has changed; except maybe the storyline. O.K the era in which how superhero exists. Well maybe a tad more gratuities sex. O.K. I guess I could go on for a few more paragraphs but you get the picture that we can not rely on the comic book character to be anymore than an inspiration for this movie.
For people that are more music orientated, among the popular background songs they included the original theme from the animated series.
It has all the formula and characters for today's super hero movies. By not making it a period piece we get to incorporate all the latest technology and social attitudes.
Only saw the Blu-Ray version. Had the standard extras and flexibility. I am pretty sure future versions will add more insight or at least more footage.
Being the very first Marvel "live action" movie of it's kind, and the first for IRON MAN, it was a complete success! I loved it and I truly believe
the production crew, director, and cast got it right.
After years of mediocre superhero movies before 2008, with a few exceptions, (1989 Batman, and very first Superman with Christopher Reeve),
this was a welcome sight for the comic universe setting up the very first "Avengers" in Summer 2012.
Robert Downey, Jr. takes on the comic role of superhero IRON MAN.
Lots of action abound and the cast does a "Super" job all around!
If you want to know where it all started before the first AVENGERS "live action" movie, this IS the place to start!
** This edition only has the single Blu-ray of the movie and it comes with a few special features. Now, if you WANT more Special Features,
I would suggest you get the 2 Disc DVD at a used, or good price. It has tons more of the making on this movie, including screen tests from Robert and lots more. I took a few screen shots of the menus on BOTH Blu-ray edition here AND the DVD Edition with has more Special Features and attached them to my review.
** First picture is of the Bluray Special features.
** Second and Third is of the DVD 2 Disc version Special Features.
DO NOT BUY IF YOU WANT A DIGITAL COPY! NONE OF THEM INCLUDE IT APPARENTLY. I'VE TRIED TWICE.
