Iron Man – Movie Review for Christian Moms

Movie Title: Iron Man
Rating: PG-13
Director: Jon Favreau
Staring: Robert Downey Jr.; Jeff Bridges; Terrence Howard; and Gwyneth Paltrow
Category: Action

Moms of Faith Rating: Two thumbs Up!

Intro: Iron Man is a humorous action packed film based on the Marvel Comic, Iron Man.

Review: Tony Stark is the star player in this movie. He is a man with no real substance in his character. he is a womanizer, gambler and an ego maniac…until he encounters some reality in the form of a terrorist kidnapping. This is where he learns what is really going on and becomes iron man.

Iron Man is a very well made movie. There is a lot of comedy and lessons learned. Tony comes back from his horrifying experience with a change of heart and a new and better mission.

I was very impressed with this film and how there was minimal language and sexuality. However, not all of it was left out…

Cons: Tony Stark is a playboy. With that brings the usual not so modestly dressed women, some kissing, and a short bed scene. Nothing way out there or worth not seeing the film.

There is a lot of violence and death. However, that is what all action films have. The language was surprisingly low key. There were scatterings of he**, bi***, and da**. Nothing too bad. They kept it kid friendly.

I would steer clear of the deleted scenes. There are some VERY bad scenes in there and a LOT more sexual content. I am VERY happy they were left out of the film!

Conclusion: While there are some questionable scenes and the film is not perfect, I think  Iron Man is a good film that shows a moral compass and willingness to change your heart and do the right thing. Robert Downey Jr. was perfect for the role of Tony Stark and I am looking forward to Iron Man 2.

If you let the credits roll, at the very end there is an opening for Iron Man 2.
