From Back Cover:

Suit up for action with ROBERT DOWNEY JR. in the ultimate adventure movie you've been waiting for, Iron Man! When jet-setting genius-industrialist Tony Stark is captured in enemy territory, he bulds a high-tech suit of armor to escape. Now, he's on a mission to save the world as a hero who's built, not born, to be unlike other. Co-starring GWYNETH PALTROW, TERRENCE HOWARD and JEFF BRIDGES, it's a fantastic, high-flying journey that is "hugely entertaining" (Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal).

My Comments:

Predictable and over-the-top, this superhero movie was saved from the total mediocrity inherent to its genre only by the gifts of Robert Downey, Jr. Needless to say, I am not a fan of this sort of movie - though it was entertaining enough to warrant an unenthusiastic 2 stars - but those who do like superheroes will probably be thrilled by it.
