More Info:
  • Roger Ebert

    You hire an actor for his strengths, and Downey would not be strong as a one-dimensional mighty-man. He is strong because he is smart, quick and funny, and because we sense his public persona masks deep private wounds. By building on that, Favreau found his movie, and it's a good one.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Ever-eclectic director Jon Favreau, who briefly pops up onscreen as a Stark minion, maintains a brisk but not frantic pace, and, in concert with lenser Matthew Libatique, production designer J. Michael Riva and the first-rate visual effects team, has made an unusually elegant looking film for the genre.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The gadgetry is absolutely dazzling, the action is mostly exhilarating, the comedy is scintillating and the whole enormous enterprise, spawned by Marvel comics, throbs with dramatic energy because the man inside the shiny red robotic rig is a daring choice for an action hero, and an inspired one.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • William Arnold

    Is it possible to have yet another expensive excursion into this genre that seems in any way fresh, original and alive? The answer, surprisingly, is yes.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Downey and Favreau and the special-effects team transform the trying-out of the armor and its powers into slapstick cadenzas. But equally entertaining is Stark's and Potts' recognition that they share more than a mere working chemistry.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Downey plays off his own bad-boy image wonderfully. The writers give him great lines to work with and ditto that for his Girl Friday, Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts, whose own svelte lines cannot be improved on.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Loyal assistant, Pepper Potts, isn't much of a part, but Gwyneth Paltrow is a presence. She stands around looking amused and flabbergastingly pretty, slinging wisecracks with serene aplomb.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Iron Man, too, is something that people will see regardless of the reviews, but here is the point: Where Michael Bay (Transformers) has mastered a kind of sensory-assaulting pop art, Favreau is a born storyteller who engages the audience's imagination rather than crushing it in a tsunami of digital noise.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Some of us knows that there's an American style -- best displayed in the big, smart, kid-friendly epic -- that few other cinemas even aspire to, and none can touch. When it works, as it does here, it rekindles even a cynic's movie love. So cheers to Downey, Favreau and the Iron Man production company. They don't call it Marvel for nothing.

    Time Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    All praise to acting dynamo Robert Downey Jr., who brings so much creative juice to the party that Iron Man achieves instant liftoff.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    As big-budget comic book adaptations go, this one's a gratifying freak--the right kind of conflicted, as well as quick-witted. It's a lot of fun.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    With such smarts and outstanding special effects, I eagerly await a second Iron Man movie, which of course is virtually promised in the final scene.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Until a final conflict that more resembles a monster-truck jam than a superhero showdown, Iron Man is solid gold.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    When it comes to tone, Iron Man achieves something at which many of even its most celebrated predecessors have failed: it doesn't FEEL like a superhero movie. Instead, it's bigger and more inclusive.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Even at his coolest, Downey's Iron Man remains a ghostly, neurotic crusader -- one whose life, in the Marvel tradition, has become a grand spectacle of overcompensation.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    There are more compelling stories to be found in the comic book world, and there are more expressive directors than Jon Favreau. But on the bases of wit, verve, spirit and whiz-bangery, it's pretty tough to find fault with.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Iron Man is the rare comic-book movie that makes the prospect of a sequel seem like a promise instead of a threat.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The result is the first comic-book movie in a while that actually feels like a classic comic book: fast, furious and flip. Forget about superheroes with love problems and tortured souls.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The movie's climactic battle scene is mildly thrilling -- although it's not nearly as exciting as simply watching Downey and Bridges work together. Bridges makes a great villain precisely because he's such a relaxed, affable presence. Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Has the advantage of being an unusually good superhero picture. Or at least -- since it certainly has its problems -- a superhero movie that's good in unusual ways.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Ansen

    Downey and Favreau give the movie a quirky flavor it can call its own. For that we can be grateful.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    When it's idling in neutral, and we're watching Stark putter in his workshop or seduce unsuspecting journalists, Iron Man abounds in that rarest of superpowers: charm.

    Slate Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    And Favreau? If you'd told me 12 years ago that Swingers' comic linchpin would end up helming one of the best, most visceral, and downright fun foray of all the comic-book franchises waiting in the CGI wings, I'd have told you to amscray, kid. But what the hell? Turns out irony's good for your blood.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    It's a fantastic special effect because it doesn't look like a special effect: The movie sells the illusion that the suit could maybe, possibly, exist.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    An action sci-fi blockbuster extravaganza that provides cartoon thrills for thinking people. It's the best movie of its kind since the second "Spider-Man" movie four years ago.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    A dark delight that combines pop-culture wit and genuine emotional depth.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Iron Man's biggest strength is that the fantastically armored suit doesn't overpower the intriguingly flawed character encased within.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    Iron Man is the first Marvel Comics superhero movie I would willingly sit through a second time. This is the result not just of what the movie does, but what the movie doesn't do.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Cynical, hip, politically opportunistic and loaded with kick-ass comic action.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    A brain-free ride on a cinematic bullet train.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    As comic book movies go, Iron Man is a solid entry. Downey and company help drag Favreau out of the genre holes he digs, making for a decent experience.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    The movie is so clever and smoothly paced that it's easy to overlook the odious story line.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Downey appears to like all this make-believe. Even the clunky dialogue sounds witty out of his mouth. This is not a part that makes great demands on his talent, and his slummy approach to it is amusing.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    It's not sure where to go once the final Iron Man suit is constructed, and seems in a rush to get there, but Downey Jr and the supporting cast are so perfectly placed we're already looking forward to the bound-to-be-better sequel.

    Empire Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Though Iron Man is diverting enough in the comic-book-movie mode, there is one thing it doesn't have, and that is dramatic unity. Unlike the irreducible element that is its namesake, Iron Man the movie is an alloy, a combination of several different and disconnected components that don't manage to unite to make a coherent whole.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    I suppose it's asking too much for a great actor to be matched up with a great director on a project like this. On the other hand, there's always the sequel.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    It succeeds only fitfully. Toggling between Stark's impish goatee and Iron Man's full-metal body condom, and amid so many generic fireballs, kill shots and earsplitting thumps, bumps and crunches, the film finally collapses under its own weight.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Denby

    [Downey] can make offhandedness mesmerizing, even soulful; he passes through the key moments in this cloddish story as if he were ad-libbing his inner life.
