QUICK TAKE:
Action/Adventure: A billionaire inventor/superhero finds his world turned upside down by a terrorist whose bombings and other actions are leading up to something really bad.
PLOT:
By now, most everyone knows that billionaire inventor and industrialist Tony Stark (ROBERT DOWNEY JR.) is the man behind the superhero Iron Man. Having recently saved the world from an alien invasion with the help of other superheroes, he's now entrenched in his Malibu mansion, tinkering with a number of Iron Man suits while his live-in girlfriend, Pepper Potts (GWYNETH PALTROW), runs Stark Industries where his former driver, Happy Hogan (JON FAVREAU), is now the head of security.

Happy casts a doubtful eye on Aldrich Killian (GUY PEARCE) and his right-hand man, Savin (JAMES BADGE DALE), when they show up wanting a meeting with Pepper. Having met Tony and his fling of the day, researcher Maya Hansen (REBECCA HALL), back in 1999, Aldrich would now like to team with Stark Industries in regards to his Extremis project that he believes will advance humankind to the next level. Pepper turns him down, and Happy trails Savin, only to be badly wounded in a bombing caused by a man who started to glow from the inside before exploding.

Believing this to be the work of a terrorist known as The Mandarin (BEN KINGSLEY) who's recently surfaced and broadcast his threats across the world, Tony publically announces his forthcoming revenge. That results in an all-out military assault on Tony's mansion, an attack he barely escapes, with his onboard Iron Man suit computer, Jarvis (voice of PAUL BETTANY), sending him flying across the country to Tennessee where a similar bombing occurred in the past.

With his Iron Man suit disabled, he must reinvent himself and starts to do so with the help of Harley (TY SIMPKINS), a local boy and fellow inventor. As the terrorist actions of The Mandarin continue, Tony gears up and -- with the help of Air Force Lt. Col. James "Rhodey" Rhodes (DON CHEADLE) who suits up in his own set of armor known as War Machine/Iron Patriot -- tries to find the madman before it's too late.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the previous "Iron Man" movies or comic book related films in general, that will be a definite yes.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence throughout, and brief suggestive content.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
