The first blockbuster of the summer comes out this Friday.
Indeed, Robert Downey Jr. flies into theaters as Iron Man this week. While the previews for the film couldn't make it look much more exciting, we were curious what critics thought. Here's our answer...
- Audiences looking for grand escapist fare at cinemas this summer won't mind having spent their price of admission on it. Be sure to get some popcorn too... -- Sci Fi Movie Page
- In place is a talented cast, an interesting director, an established lead character, and a wealth of plots from the comics ready to be mined for future storylines. Despite Iron Man's problems, it will definitely leave you wanting more... -- IGN UK
- [An] expansively entertaining special effects extravaganza... -- Variety
- Handsome and Charismatic, Robert Downey Jr. renders a dominant performance, treating the comicstrip character as a dramatic actor, which compensates for the movie's flaws and elevates it above the standard of a slickly produced popcorn summer fare... -- Emanuel Levy
