    I thought it was pretty good. The effects were awesome, and the story was good, and to my surprise Robert Downey did a very good job, I was worried they were going to go for too much comedy, but the one liners, the few comedic bits and the sarcasm was done just right. It was enjoyable to watch on the big screen, and I would recommend it, even though I had a couple of issues with a few things in the movie I didnt like, overall it was worth it.

    I thought it was the best pure comic book movie yet, only because I consider Batman more mainstream and less comic book.

    For those who seen it, that house over seeing the ocean where he lives is that place for real? What a view!
    I mean the graphics in this movie were so good many times during the movie it was hard catching the line between special effects and reality

    I agree - by far the best comic book movie. Aside, that is, from "Captain J Licks Mullet's Balls in an Erotic Threesome".

    I posted this elsewhere:

    I was pleased to see them take time to grow the character(s) giving much more material for sequels.

    Working in the aerospace manufacturing industry myself I had a peculiar feeling of empathy to his "eyes opening" to the grand(er) impact he had on the world despite his well intentioned engineering masterpieces of defense.

    Additionally, and probably of zero interest to anyone else, but it is great to see RDJr getting his **** together and do some solid acting again. Great to see him salvage what was left of his career/life after his substance abuse issues. I just love the character Tony Stark and what RDJr brings to him when he comes to life.

    Agreed on all counts.

    Downey is undisputed owner of the screen throughout the movie - even Jeff Bridges (one of my long-time favorite actors) struggles to hold his own w/ Downey (mostly due to few & brief appearances - his performance is terrific).

    First comic-derived film I've seen where the non-FX parts were as good as the CGI fireworks - and as terrific as the CGI is here, the story isn't built around it: it's built around & into the story.

    Absolutely the best franchise yet, given this arschegekicken first chapter. Downey's brilliant, and good to see him on his feet & working. Speaking of working, the movie just works. Goes a long way toward rinsing out the bad taste of some earlier adaptations, too.

    I haven't seen the movie but I'm gonna go ahead and say no. War Machine was Stark's buddy Rhodes.

    And yes, Robert Downy Jr. is the perfect persona to play Tony Stark, again, I was calling this before the trailer was even out. I am thrilled this is in fact the case. Looking forward to seeing this one.

    Glad to hear it's such a good movie. I was let down by Fantastic 4, Didn't even see the sequel and didn't see Batman 3 after that. Will go see this after hearing such good reviews about it.

    It's a brief, dark scene in which we meet...Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (okay, "director" of S.H.I.E.L.D.)

    As a long-time fan of "Sgt. Fury & the Howling Commandos", and the later, very experimental "Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.", I'm WAAAY excited to think where this could be going (and only slightly jarred by the fact that Fury is played by Samuel L. Blackguy - a switch similar to "Starbuck" being a woman in the new BSG).

    He mntions the Avengers....

    I would hope the movie is not a combination, as too many villains or superheroes can become convoluted ala X-Men 3, Spiderman 3, the horrid Batman Forever, and so on. The best 'superhero' movies to date have been, in my opinion, and no particular order:

    Batman (Tim Burton)
    Batman Begins
    Spiderman 1
    X-Men 1
    Iron Man

    In fact, these may be the only superhero movies which may withstand criticism and be 'actual movies'. I think they achieved that because of low character profiles, allowing the director to focus on a few, key characters. Their sequels all tried to appease fanboys, and made the stories utterly convoluted. The secret to success for superhero movies is: stick with one hero, one main villain (preferably a strong one), and develop your characters honestly and believably.

    I was kind of hoping that M. Knight's Unbreakable would have a sequel. The character development was actually the whole movie. We did not get to see their hero/nemesis role until the late to end of the movie.

    Again a perfect actor/character/role for Bruno Bruce Willis - he embodies my real life and fantasy alter egos as well or moreso did his character David Dunn.

    First I've heard about "The Ultimate Marvel Universe"; my comments were from reading "Sgt. Fury & His Howling Commandos" back when I was a kid, and then later, the "Nick Fury, SHIELD" series (one of the best ever & truly great new stuff at the time (a bit dated now, but still...Jim Steranko was THE shiznit).

    Sgt. Fury was IIRC the first comic with a mixed-race, multi-ethnic cast, but Fury was white back then.

    Yes. Scroll down to the bottom and read about the initial desire for M. Knight to make it a trilogy.

    Does anyone have M's digits so I can let him know that "it's a go" for the sequel.
