I love this movie, but iron man 3 is a lot better. Robert Downey Jr is absolutely amazing as Tony Stark!

This is a 2008 American superhero film directed by Jon Favreau, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. The film stars Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark, an industrialist and master engineer who builds a powered exoskeleton and becomes the technologically advanced superhero Iron Man. Gwyneth Paltrow plays his personal assistant Pepper Potts, Terrence Howard plays military liaison James Rhodes, and Jeff Bridges plays Stark Industries executive Obadiah Stane. Although the powered exoskeleton-armors and the computer-generated imagery are fantastic and awe-inspiring, the storyline is so poor that I yawned several times while watching. It is good enough for a kid but not for an adult. Party scenes are meaningless. There is no love interest.

Coming into watching this movie I always heard how great this movie was and how lousy the sequels were compared to it. I was disappointed, its good, but not great even by action movie standards.

From where I'm sitting I'd say that the effeminate, "dont-muss-my-hair", Robert Downey Jr. was the absolute worst choice, bar none, to play the Tony Stark/Iron Man character._____ Tony Stark may have been a weapons designer extraordinaire and the darling-of-the-hour, but, hey, believe me, he certainly had a lot more money than he did sense. But, nevertheless, Stark was destined to become more that just a nuts-n-bolts type of guy._____ When Tony wasn't busy designing fabulous weapons he was just a jaded, apathetic alcoholic who really loved nothing more than to verbally insult and degrade women._____ To have made Stark a "Super Hero" at the end of this "Rocketeer Meets Robocop" flick was a joke and a half. Tony's change of heart from being a first-class crumb to a civic-minded do-gooder was about as insincere and pretentious as you could possibly get._____ Yep. Indeed. Iron Man is yet another prime example of why, over this past decade, superhero movies have become my least favorite genre of all._____ Did Iron Man's screenplay really require the input of 8 (!!!) contributing writers!? (Sheesh!)

A bit slow moving - but that made it a refreshing change from the usual fare of today - so called movies consisting of random images joined together that are just a series of explosions and blood, flashing by at lightspeed. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, the plot, the pace and the acting. The dialogue had some great one liners that made the movie particularly memorable. Jeff Bridges was having the time of his life portraying a bad dude - that enjoyment alone made it fun.

Half expecting another mindless film based on a cartoon superhero, I was pleasantly surprised with “Iron Man”. Not only was it entertaining, it also addressed the ever-looming threat of the development of new and more powerful weaponry and the danger of its propagation. I recommend watching this one.

Playboy and wunderkind genius Tony Stark, who has inherited the defense contractor Stark Industries from his father, is in war-torn Afghanistan with his friend and military liaison, Lieutenant Colonel James Rhodes (Terrence Howard) to demonstrate the new "Jericho" missile. Stark is critically wounded in an ambush and imprisoned in a cave by the terrorist group the Ten Rings. An electromagnet built by fellow captive Dr. Yinsen (Shaun Toub) keeps the shrapnel in Stark's chest from reaching his heart and killing him. Ten Rings leader Raza (Faran Tahir) offers Stark freedom in exchange for building a Jericho missile for the group, but Tony and Yinsen agree Raza will not keep his word.

Is it better to be feared or respected? I say.....is it too much to ask for both? Some people prefer the weapon you never have to fire. I respectfully disagree. I PREFER the weapon you only have to fire once. That's how dad did it, that's how America does it....and it's worked out pretty well so far.
