Comic book hero

Terrence Howard: Stark’s buddy, Air Force Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes
Jeff Bridges: long-time partner of Stark Enterprises, Obadiah Stane
Robert Downey Jr.: billionaire industrialist Tony Stark
Gwyneth Paltrow: his PA, Virginia “Pepper” Potts
Shaun Toub: Yinsen, a scientist held captive in Afghanistan
Faran Tahir: terrorists leader Raza

Fans of Spider-Man, Superman, Batman and Robin will certainly enjoy this latest addition to the reincarnation of a comic book hero. Although the demographic clearly is teen and above, even those who are “way-above” and with a couple of hours on their hands will find it an entertaining experience.

As expected there are lots of gadgets, good looking cars (and good looking women too) with just a smattering of romance and some humorous moments the time flies by although it’s two hours long. Production values are first rate as is the acting and the editing is crisp.

for some intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence and brief suggestive content.
