One movie is great, one movie is terrible, make your choice.
I love Batman Begins. The origin of the character blends seemlessly with the rest of the movie, unlike a lot of the Marvel movies that seem to completely change in tone halfway through. I like Iron Man too though.
Two GREAT starters for what I hope will be at least trilogies. IRON MAN is a fun, great movie. BATMAN BEGINS is a well-made great movie. I'm going IRON MAN just because of RDJ.
Loved both. But I think Batman Begins was more than just a thrill ride. So I'm going with that one.
If you had put Dark Knight up against Iron Man it would've won.
I came out of Iron Man thinking, "That was the best superhero film I've ever seen... not named The Dark Knight." Between those two, the gap is not a sizable one. But between those two and Batman Begins, the gap is noticeable.
Iron Man over Begins, but not over Dark Knight.
Iron Man is clearly the better film. I would think most agree. Now, if Iron Man 2 tops TDK (and most think it will) then we're talking best ever!
@Northpoint: Iron Man 2 will not top TDK. There's no way. But it could conceivably top both of these. By the way, I cannot pick Iron Man over Batman Begins...but it is close.
Iron Man ,Batman Begins was kind of a disappointment .
1.) Dark Knight 2.) Iron Man 3.) Batman Begins 4.) Iron Man 2
Begins. They're both awesome, if completely different. The big difference for me was that Begins had a much better climax than Iron Man (even if the fight with Ra's wasn't perfect, it was still more exciting for me).
I changed my mind long ago. The Dark Knight > Iron Man > Batman Begins > X2 > Spider-Man 2 > Iron Man 2.
Definitely Batman Begins. Iron Man was good, but I feel that was largely down to Robert Downey Jnr and his chemsitry with Gwyneth Paltrow. The end was just CGI robots hitting each other. Batman Begins has much more to offer. I'm no Chris Nolan fan, but he did good here.
When it comes to first films in a superhero franchise Iron Man is the best. If this was a competition of sequels that would be an entirely different conversation.
That it's even this close of a vote shows how delusional Nolan fans have become. Iron Man outclasses Batman Begins in every way possible.
Iron Man does have a weak villain and disappointing final battle. But it is more entertaining overall. I don't think there's an huge gap in quality with these movies, though. Because of the dull climax in Iron Man, I can't really say I enjoy the movie as a whole. The humor and Downey are pretty much what gives it the edge, not the action so much. But, Batman Begins has a blah villain, too... Both of these could've been better.
Batman Begins, No contest.
Batman's origin is far more interesting and intricate than Iron Man's, the supporting cast is stronger and Ra's is a much more complex and menacing villain than Stane.
Iron Man and it's not even debatable. The character of Tony Stark is so much more complex and so much more interesting. Not only is Iron Man more visually appealing but so much more textured. It really comes through in the film adaptation. As most have noted over time, Batman Begins is a very flawed film.
Batman Begins cripples anything that the drastically overrated Marvel studios has ever churned out. Stane is such a forgettable villain that he single-handedly drags Iron Man down several notches, not to mention the fact that the so-called "Big twist" where he reveals his intentions is about as surprising as hearing that Michael Jackson had image problems. Ducard being found out as Ras Al Ghul was a masterstroke of writing and direction.
SquareMaster = Nolan's chief delusional disciple. Anyone posts anything against one of his films and he patrols like an attack dog. Keep up the crazy good work! The more crazy crap you write, the more people see exactly what is going on around the Net with Nolan fanatics everywhere.
You're one to talk, moron. You've done nothing but slander every film Nolan has put out and given the same ridiculous hyperbolic praise to every overrated film Stan Lee has ever had his name attached to with ridiculous statements like "Everything Marvel has done as a solo studio has outclassed everything the WB has done" and "Insert Marvel Film Here... and it's not even debatable" If you honestly think that any of these rushed, underdeveloped, glorified trailers for the Avengers can even come close to the levels of BB, TDK or the Original Superman, YOU'RE the one who needs deprogramming, along with every other one of the trolls who permeate the Marvel IMDB boards. Given the fact that those idiots were the ones trying to pass off THIS piece of cinematic trash ( http://www.flickchart.com/movie/2B179599DE ) as quality film making makes me think that they secretly house a collection of Seltzerberg and Boll in their STan Lee Autographed safe deposit box.
God, I do love to rattle an idiot's cage! LOL, thanks!
Shouldn't you be busy making 15 new usernames at IMDB and dragging Stan's name further through the sewage, Tool?
Hardcore fans not withstanding, both are high quality films that do justice to the genre. I own both and enjoy both. I simply enjoy Iron Man more. No need to throw stones or write paragraphs. It really is that simple.
Very hard matchup but for now im going with Batman Begins.
Batman Begins by far. Fantastic story about the origins of the dark knight. Plus, RDJ is more annoying than funny.
I'm going with Iron Man.
I'll go with Iron Man, Batman Begins really was just an attempt to fix the franchise that had lost it's way. Iron Man actually holds up and improves upon a very weak Super Hero.
Batman Begins: Ironman kind of disappointed me./
Easily Batman begins.
Love both, but Begins is clearly better.
I found Iron Man slightly boring.
Stupid people. Stupid people everywhere.
Batman Begins is and always will be considered bland and uninspired by most people. Iron Man is the definition of instant classic.
IM is pretty much regarded by most as a watered-down version of Batman Begins.
Batman Begins is the superior comic achievement.
Love the Nolan Batman movies, but I'll go for Iron Man here.
The Dark Knight tops Iron Man (barely), but Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises don't. These are two good movies, though.
