  Great movie but Blu-ray picture should be better!

| | See all FrenchMachine's reviews (1)

I'm not going to comment on the actual film, as if you are looking at buying it then chances are you have already seen it! My comments relate to the transfer and picture quality.

I was really looking forward to this movie on Blu-Ray but now I have it I really am amazed at the amount of people saying how awesome the transfer is! As someone else already said, this is certainly not a film to show off your set up with! In several places in this film, the background goes very grainy as do some faces in the foreground. The colours are vibrant and certain details show up very well, and the menus look superb, but overall the picture disappointed me. Dare I say it, but this is not to the standard of say The Dark Knight, which continues to blow people away when I show them the clarity of the picture! If that can be presented so well, then why not all recent movies? As an overall package including extras etc. this would definitely score 5 stars, but my 3 star rating is purely down to the transfer. In my opinion it could/should have been much better!

  Film-great...Picture-Great...Sound-Oh dear

| | See all sexypavlock's reviews (5)

Ive had a blue ray player for about 6 months and have bought about 10 discs. This is the only one where the sound has really failed. I mean I have to put the tv volume at 100 just to get a decent level that is audible. Ive checked and it certainly aint the disc so the advice I will give is that the film is awesome but beware of dodgy sound on this disc

  Not bad, but not great.

| | See all AstralDescent's reviews (55)

Hmm, this isn't bad. Quite funny sometimes. Its essentially an average film given a bit of personality by Downey. Its more of a traditional super hero effort, like the spider man films. I can't help but feel that it has been surpassed a few times now, by The dark knight, watchmen, and recently Kick-Ass. The last fight was disappointing and I didn't really think the film was very memorable. However it is cheap, and if you are an Iron man fan, I'm sure you will like it.

Up there with the Dark Knight for best comic book movie. This blu-ray is awesome, the picture clarity amazing and the sound blows you away. At the new low price you have to have this blu-ray in your collection!
Bring on Iron Man 2!!

  amazing ,superheroes just get better

| | See all ry1987's reviews (59)

i have yet to see a marvel film i dont love, xmen,hulk,spiderman, there all amazing, iron man just as good.the first in any series is always the best as it tells how the character came about.after 2 very worrylingly awful batman movies i was wondering if superhero movies were losing their magic but turns out its only batman than lots its touch,any marvel dvd/bluray live or animated has been well worth every penny, dc comics, well not too sure

  I was wrong about Downey Jnr

| | See all Rockfan1973's reviews (155)

I pretty much hated any film he was in before but the character of Tony Stark is perfect for him and Iron Man is brilliant - Role on this summers Iron Man 2!

  Fantastic film

The film itself is fantastic, one of my all time favourites. It looks super good on Blu-ray and there's like over two hours of great bonus features.
