Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Gwenyth Paltrow, Terrance Howard, etc.
Rating: PG-13 for for some intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence, and brief suggestive content.
Tony Stark is a billionaire industrialist and genius inventor who is kidnapped and forced to build a devastating weapon. Instead, using his intelligence and ingenuity, Tony builds a high-tech suit of armor and escapes captivity. When he uncovers a nefarious plot with global implications, he dons his powerful armor and vows to protect the world as Iron Man.
I enjoyed this movie, really, I did. I guess because I had heard so many good things about this movie that I hyped it up to be something that I don't think it could have delivered. I enjoyed the movie for what it is, mindless enjoyment.
Robert Downey Jr. was a great Tony Stark. He was fun, witty and incredibly funny and it was easy to follow him around while he turned himself into Iron Man. He totally made this movie. The romantic in me totally dug the side love story between him and Gwenyth Paltrow's character and I'm definitely up for seeing the sequel that I hear will be released next year sometime.
I would definitely recommend this movie to those out there who are wanting an entertaining, action movie with a great storyline, fabulous characters and just a rolicking good time. This would definitely be the movie for you.
