Great Superhero/action flick, I highly recommend this movie.

I am iron man
Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all,
Or if he moves will he fall?
Is he alive or dead?
Has he thoughts within his head?
We'll just pass him there
Why should we even care?

He was turned to steel
In the great magnetic field
Where he traveled time
For the future of mankind

Nobody wants him
He just stares at the world
Planning his vengeance
That he will soon unfold

Now the time is here
For Iron Man to spread fear
Vengeance from the grave
Kills the people he once saved

Nobody wants him
They just turn their heads
Nobody helps him
Now he has his revenge

Heavy boots of lead
Fills his victims full of dread
Running as fast as they can
Iron Man lives again!

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.

Pratt: Is it true that you went twelve-for-twelve with the Maxim Girls last year?
Tony Stark: That is an excellent question. Yes and no. March and I had a scheduling conflict but fortunately the Christmas cover was twins.

Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [walking in on Stark's robots trying to get him out of the Iron Man suit] What is going on here?
Tony Stark: Let's face it, this is not the worst thing you've caught me doing.

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.

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.
