I wanna see it. Is it any good?
The rest?? Hmmmm.....
Too much backgroun story-telling. And minus 5 points for 'myspace' dropping within the first 5 mins
"Just don't expect anything special"
Robert Downey Jr is a lot of fun, Gwyneth Paltrow looks very hot and Jeff Bridges is a towering baddy.
The only problem with the film is that all superhero films have essentially the same plot -hero gets powers and then fights a darker version of himself.
Agreed - except for that Jeff Bridges is a 'towering' baddie.
He went from offering the hero pizza to homicidal maniac within 2 minutes. Towering baddies should be overtly evil from the start. And it took me until the very end of the film to realise he was The Dude.
And that terrorist was rubbish as well.
Make him bald and put him in charge of a killing machine and he still isn't evil. Nobody evil has a voice like that.
that he's physically bigger than anyone else in the film.
not great, but visually its superb.
seriously. stay all the way through the credits. and they're long, believe me. but it's worth it.
as to the film, i thought it was grand. it was a superhero movie so therefore never likely to transport me but i thought it was perfectly entertaining. the suit was awesome and downey jnr was sublime as always..
the dark knight comes out soon :D:D:D:D:D:D
BUT he was listening to Institutionalized by Suicidal Tendencies in his lab.
Just watched it, bags of big, dumb fun and wide open for sequels galore.
Also, IronMan > Spiderman
Obviously, Batman will be better though.
Possibly worth noting that Gwyneth Paltrow is actually pretty sexy in this. She rocks that whole buttoned up corporate fox thing so well.
Totally not better than Spiderman though!
Well worth a watch if you like superheroes, big bangs and wise cracking! Get involved.
Spidey is like the emo superhero!
of the marvel civil war alongside all the totally uncool lame-o heroes like the fantastic four against the awesome ones like the x-men and captain america (resulting in caps assassination)
i'm going to boycott.
