    I was going to see it tonight. Then one of my friend in work said there's gonna be people in there. I played it safe and sound by staying under of huge rock and gonna wait when it's on bluray.

    It's been now about 10 years since last time I watched a movie in cinema...

    It was out the 25th here, I watched it past Sunday. I gotta say that is has the cool Iron Man elements, but some people might not like the story.

    I saw it. Mega Blockbuster but left me unimpresed and uninterested. Not because it's a bad movie, because it most certainly isnt, but because it is a dumbed down action comedy. It is an iron man Movie for the Transformers generation - a good one, but still. And it has some incredibly stupid plot holes. The middle twist was cool, even though i personally felt it was a riddiculously dumb idea to NOT pick up on that. They just tell you this and that and then tehy move on without any implications. SO much wasted potential.

    The best thing in the movies was James Badge Dale as Savin. The way he portrays his character is fantastic.

    All in all a nice film but i barely remember anything of it. And the plance scene is just cringeworthy...

    This movie was mad decent. Not great, not bad, just pretty fun.

    I think the real shame is that it has a great, clever twist that completely plays with the audience's expectations. I just wish the rest of the movie was at that same level.

    I saw it last night and thought it was eh.

    Most of the movie was decent, the action was cool as always, and Iron Man was his normal Iron Man self. But I felt it suffered from the same thing all the other Iron Man movies (and The Avengers too) that there was way too much comedy almost to the point were it actually ruined some of the scenes. As well the ending felt kinda rushed to me, like it could have had like 5 to 10 more minutes to flesh it out more.

    Honestly I am not a huge Iron Man fan and watching all 3 Iron Man of the movies (plus The Avengers) I still have the same option on him, he's an ok Superhero, but at least he's not Caption America.

    I just got back from this movie, I have to be honest, I was not impressed at all. These are the things that I remembered that bugged me: (spoilers alert)

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    The movie was just subpar to me. Definitely not that great of an Iron Man movie, let alone a superhero movie.

    I liked it, though I'm not a massive comic follower. Though these were my gripes

    That PTSD thing is dumb. He's been through a ton of fights, and he gets it now? Just seems weird and dumb.

    I get they were sort of following the comics, but come on, let's be honest, some comic issues just aren't good, and even if they are, doesn't mean they can be done in film. This movie and Dark Knight Rises is proof of that.

    Stark has a shit ton of suits. That's not something they made up for the film, the circular chamber they flew out of looks like the same one from the animated series.

    The movie's far from perfect, certainly, but it seems like you're making up problems more than anything else.

    Nope, those were my biggest gripes about the movie. I loved the other Iron Man movies. They were done exceptionally well. Perfect amount of story and action. This one dragged on and on and on. Yeah I know it's based on a comic and such, but some comics just don't convert well to the big screen and remain as good as they do in the comic (ie The Dark Knight Rises).

    You do realize that Iron Man 2 only has 22 minutes of action in an 125 minute film, right? I enjoyed the film (though it's by far the weakest of the series), but holding it up as a perfect example of pacing is... wildly inaccurate, to say the least.

    Also, TDKR, based on a comic story? The only thing that TDKR pulls from the comics plot-wise is Bane breaking Batman - everything else (including the circumstances surrounding it) was wholly invented for the film. Hell, even Bane is completely, utterly different. Whatever problems the film may have had, they didn't come from adaptation strain.
