Well, I had just came back from seeing the movie. Now, I'm not very familiar with the original comic beyond what was shown of Iron Man within the Avengers, so my opinion is from a casual moviewatcher`s standpoint.
Back, fanboys. Back.
I thought that the movie was awesome. The visual effects were stunning, of course. The one sequence where the suit is being placed on Stark was 1-2 minute of the most pure mecha fanservice that I have ever seen. The story was really amazing for something packed into two hours. And I`m not that familiar with the original Tony Stark`s Personality, but I loved Robert Downey Jr.`s characterization in this version.
Also, the part after the credits left me (literally) standing and gasping in shock. Though it`s mostly wishful thinking, I thought that it was awesome and I`d love to see them follow through with what they showed.
My point? It was worth the hype. Go ahead, fanboys. Rip me apart, limb from limb. I stand by my opinion.
