Suit up for action with Robert Downey Jr. in the ultimate adventure movie youve been waiting for, Iron Man! When jet-setting genius-industrialist Tony Stark is captured in enemy territory, he builds a high-tech suit of armor to escape. Now, hes on a mission to save the world as a hero whos built, not born, to be unlike any other. Co-starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard and Jeff Bridges, its a fantastic, high-flying journey that is "hugely entertaining" (Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal).
You know you're going to get a different kind of superhero when you cast Robert Downey Jr. in the lead role. And Iron Man is different, in welcome ways. Cleverly updated from Marvel Comics' longstanding series, Iron Man puts billionaire industrialist Tony Stark (that's Downey) in the path of some Middle Eastern terrorists; in a brilliantly paced section, Stark invents an indestructible suit that allows him to escape. If the rest of the movie never quit hits that precise rhythm again, it nevertheless offers plenty of pleasure, as the renewed Stark swears off his past as a weapons manufacturer, develops his new Iron Man suit, and puzzles both his business partner (Jeff Bridges in great form) and executive assistant (Gwyneth Paltrow). Director Jon Favreau geeks out in fun ways with the hardware, but never lets it overpower the movie, and there's always a goofy one-liner or a slapstick pratfall around to break the tension. As for Downey, he doesn't get to jitterbug around too much in his improv way, but he brings enough of his unpredictable personality to keep the thing fresh. And listen up, hardcore Marvel mavens: even if you know the Stan Lee cameo is coming, you won't be able to guess it until it's on the screen. It all builds to a splendid final scene, with a concluding line delivery by Downey that just feels absolutely right. --Robert Horton

Iron Man Installs something to your ps3 or BD live player.... It sits at the circular chest piece loading icon for atleast 10 to 15 minutes before it finishes.... Only the first time you load it.... after you wait you will never have to wait again.
Ways around this....
BDlive player... Unplug the network cable....
Ps3..... disable the network under network settings.
That being said i discovered this after taking my copy back as disc 2 requires no install time and the movie doesnt prompt to tell you thats what it is doing.
Be patient and you will be rewarded with a great movie. Oh and if you have friends over and cant wait.... just turn off the network or unplug that network cable and off you go... hope this helped
Robert downey jr. (I think that is his name)plays as Iron Man. He does such a good job and he's really funny. There aren't any bad actors in the movie. The Iron Man suit looks so real I just want to pause the movie and look at him.
If you want a good movie to watch on a Friday night with some friends, this is the perfect movie.
