Robert Downey was tailor made for this role and his performance as Tony Stark the man who would become Iron Man is first rate. They went through the origin and my favorite aspect is having Jeff Bridges as the lead villain. His corporate baddie is the right amount of conniving nastiness and added a major component to the movie. And yes there's plenty of high flying action to keep the avid comic book fans attention.

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.

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.
