  You've been called the Da Vinci of our time. What do you say to that?
Tony Stark: Absolutely ridiculous. I don't paint.

I remember when I heard that Jr. was doing this movie I was concerned it would be horrible. After seeing the previews I started counting down the days til it opened.

Probably one of my favorites.

  So much hinged on this movie. Imagine if it had only been mediocre, or even bad. We might never have had an MCU. Luckily it turned out to be a really good movie, in an almost old fashioned, kind of Spielbergian way.

  TONY STARK WAS ABLE TO BUILD THIS IN A CAVE WITH A BUNCH OF SCRAPS!!!

well, I'm sorry, I'm not Tony Stark...

  I love the showdown with the tank. Stark just sidesteps the second shot, after he's blown from the sky with the first, shoots a tiny little firework sounding thing, and blows the tank to smithereens. Tight As Fuck! The acting is all around good, and they made great choices for the cast. 5 Stars!

  9 years later, this movie still holds up. 5 stars!

  Still one of the best comic book movies ever. And I'm not even a fan of Iron Man comics at all.

  I remember being so skeptical when this was announced, I though Iron Man was a B list Marvel hero at best, and Robert Downey Jr hadn't done anything big in years.

By the end credit scene, when Nick Fury says the words "Avengers Initiative," I literally lost my mind. They're actually going to try to do this, I thought. And they did.

  Also Pepper's take out the trash line is savage. Great intro.

  Currently the best MCU film I've watched.

  What a grand way to start the MCU! Once I saw this, I knew that we were in for a real treat! Robert Downey Jr. plays Tony Stark to perfection, and the movie has just the right amount of humor, action, and drama to tell a great story.

  We all know this is a good movie, even a great movie, but I'm still surprised at just how well it holds up even now, ten years later. This is just a flat out, almost perfect super hero movie

  My ranking so far in the order from best movie to worst

1. Iron Man

I guess the list is easy at this point

  Iron Man is a great origin story. You should watch it.
