Fantasy Action Adventure - This is an action-adventure film based on the Marvel comics character
of the same name. On top of the expected action and effects, there
is also a healthy amount of humor. Fans of Robert Downey Jr. will be
pleased though Terrence Howard fans may be disappointed by his
limited screen time.
PROFANITY: 1 S-word, a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Some clothed sensuality. VIOLENCE: Hits, shootings with minimal blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: Fights, chases, explosions. COMEDY: Comic banter; some physical gags.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Very Good When it comes to tone, Iron Man achieves something at which many of even its most celebrated predecessors have failed: it doesn't feel like a superhero movie. Instead, it's bigger and more inclusive.
USA TodayFull Review Good Iron Man's biggest strength is that the fantastically armored suit doesn't overpower the intriguingly flawed character encased within.

The story of billionaire industrialist and
genius inventor Tony Stark (ROBERT DOWNEY JR.). As CEO of Stark
Industries, the U.S. Government's top weapons contractor, Tony has achieved
celebrity status by protecting American interests around the globe for decades.
Tony's carefree lifestyle is forever changed when his convoy is attacked
following a weapons test he oversees and he is held hostage by a group of
insurgents. Injured by life-threatening shrapnel embedded near his already
weakened heart, Tony is ordered to build a devastating weapon for Raza
(FARAN TAHIR), the mysterious leader of the insurgents. Ignoring his captors'
requests, Tony uses his intellect and ingenuity to build a suit of armor that keeps
him alive and enables him to escape captivity.
Upon his return to America, Tony must come to terms with his past and
vows to take Stark Industries in a new direction. Despite the resistance from
Obadiah Stane (JEFF BRIDGES), his right-hand man and top executive, who has
taken over the reigns of the company in his absence, Tony spends his days and
nights in his workshop developing and refining an advanced suit of armor that
gives him superhuman strength and physical protection.
With the help of his longtime assistant Pepper Potts (GWYNETH
PALTROW) and his trusted military liaison Rhodey (TERRENCE HOWARD),
Tony uncovers a nefarious plot with global implications. Donning his powerful
new red and gold armor, Tony vows to protect the world and right its injustices
as his new alter-ego, Iron Man.
