He made a blast during summer's superhero blockbuster season, and now Tony Stark is on a super-sized two disc DVD! Kidzworld reviews Marvel's Iron Man.


A Dangerous Business

Robert Downey Jr. stars as engineering genius Tony Stark who followed in his Dad’s footsteps as the CEO of Stark Industries, the world’s most advanced weapons manufacturer. After demonstrating his latest destructive invention in Afghanistan, the super-powered Jericho missile, Tony’s army convoy is attacked and he is caught in an explosion. When he wakes up, Tony finds himself in a cave, the prisoner of a terrorist organization.


Working for the Man

The terrorists force Stark to build them the Jericho Missile. Fatally injured in the explosion, Stark’s life is saved by Yinsen, another kidnapped scientist who created a powerful electromagnet to keep shards of shrapnel from entering his heart and killing him. Yinsen and Stark know that they’ll be killed if they ever finish the weapons, and team up to create a powerful suit of armor to escape. Soon the terrorists catch on to what’s going on, but it’s too late. Stark puts on the suit and escapes his captors after a serious battle, and is rescued by the military, led by his friend Jim Rhodes (Terrence Howard). Unfortunately, Yensin is killed.


Change of Heart

When he gets home, Stark declares that his company will no longer produce weapons because he’s seen them fall into the wrong hands. Fearing the collapse of Stark Industries, Tony’s partner, Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) tells him to take some time off, and then reveals that the board has voted to lock him out of business for the time being. Stark is intent on finding out how evil groups got their hands on his weapons, and continues to develop his super-weapon, the Iron Man suit, in secret, with only his loyal assistant Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) at his side. When they uncover a sinister plan which threatens the entire world, Tony becomes Iron Man, and vows to save the day. It turns out that the bad guys have some tricks up their sleeves too, and won’t be willing to give up their quest for world domination without a fight!


DVD Features

With a whopping whole extra disc devoted to extas (plus a few on the main disc) this special edition is an Iron Man fan's dream! The highlights are documentaries about the making of the movie--including suit construction, which is super rad--and the history of the Tony Stark/Iron Man character. But you can also see deleted scenes, screen tests for the main actors, rehearsals, special effects and a preview of the new Iron Man animated series, which features Tony as a young kid. Whew!


The Bottom Line

Like most superhero flicks, the plot is pretty standard and it’s not a huge secret as to who’s going to end up being the bad guy. That said, this movie is still a must see. Robert Downey Jr. adds a healthy dose of sarcastic humor and Gwyneth Paltrow is convincing and cute as his indispensable assistant, but the real star of this movie is the technology. Stark’s house is a sweet computerized mansion on a Malibu cliff, his car is the super-cool Audi R8, and the Iron Man suit is just incredible. The scenes in the lab when the suit is being put on, taken off, or tested are ultra-detailed and like heaven to tech-geeks. There are also some hilarious moments while he works out the kinks with the help of his robotic lab assistants. By the end of the movie you’ll want to be Tony Stark, live in his house, play with his toys and you’ll definitely be entertained.


Iron Man Rating:4
