For both comic book fans and those who can't tell the Green Lantern from the Green Arrow, IRON MAN is the type of summer blockbuster whose appeal lasts far beyond the season. Robert Downey Jr. stars as Tony Stark, a billionaire playboy and genius who puts as much effort into chasing skirts as he puts into chasing his next big idea. A trip to Afghanistan to sell weapons quickly devolves into chaos, and Stark finds himself at the mercy of a warlord who wants him to build a missile. Instead, Stark creates a powerful suit of armor, turning him into Iron Man and allowing him to escape. When he returns to America, his assistant Pepper Pots (Gwyneth Paltrow), friend Rhodey (Terrence Howard), and right-hand man Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) all marvel at the change in the man they knew. IRON MAN is the first film to be self-financed by Marvel Studios, and they should be proud of their freshman effort. They didn't take any obvious routes with choosing the cast or crew, and it pays off. Director Jon Favreau, who also has a small role in the film, is best known for directing ELF, but his first action-driven effort is nearly flawless. Casting Downey was gutsy but inspired: this is his first big action picture as well, but the wit he displays in films such as the cult hit KISS KISS, BANG BANG works perfectly for the character of Stark. IRON MAN features nods to its beloved source material, as well as to the classic animated series of the 1960s. But even for the uninitiated, this film provides an interesting entry into the Marvel superhero's universe. Audiences who keep watching after the credits have rolled will be rewarded with a bonus scene.

  • "IRON MAN, MADE OF THE RIGHT STUFF"

    The terrorists never knew what hit them. Tony Stark is a brilliant media savvy wealthy industrialist who manufactures weapons of mass destruction. Captured and seriously wounded on a trip to Afghanistan, by a terrorist faction, Stark is threatened with death unless he constructs for his captors a weaponized missile. Imprisoned in a cave with camera surveillance, and befriended and treated by an Afghani doctor, also a prisoner, Stark with the doctor’s help, fools the terrorists and constructs a suit of iron out of the raw materials made available. Weeks pass and the leader of the terrorists begin to suspect something is amiss. As they storm the cave, Stark inside his suit of iron, equipped with weapons, blasts through the enemy and blasts off into the sky. The suit can go only so far due to the materials used, and finally brings its wearer back down to earth, in this case the desert. U.S. military has been searching for Stark, and his wanderings end when he’s spotted and rescued. After returning home Stark begins work on the Iron Man we all know and love. In the genre of the classic comic book realm, Iron Man has all the ingredients to satisfy the purest; the superhero, a devious villain, a good friend, and a beautiful gal, and oh yeah the terrorists. Robert Downey Jr. does a bang up job in the lead role, with a fine support cast of Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges, and Terrence Howard. Iron Man succeeds and is destined to take its place among the classic comic book figures that have captured our imaginations. Well worth the investment and the watch. ROBERT

    Robert Downey Jr plays an excellent role as Anthony "Tony" Stark (Iron Man) in this film. This movie tells an updated view on the origins of Iron Man. Terrance Howard plays James "Rhodey" Rhodes (War Machine) Tony's befriend. This DVD has tons of special features and cut scenes. the beautiful holographic box case is worth saving. This is also rumored to be the last Iron Man film for Howard because he's being replaced by Don Cheadle in Iron Man 2
