some intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence and brief suggestive content
Billionaire industrialist Tony Stark (Downey Jr.) survives an unexpected roadside attack while in Afghanistan and is kidnapped by enemy forces who wish to force the genius inventor to develop a diabolical weapon for their use. But Tony uses his time in captivity wisely developing an invulnerable robotic suit that he uses to escape his captors. Once free, Tony discovers a deadly conspiracy that threatens society on a global scale and dons his Iron Man suit in an attempt to protect Earth and its inhabitants. Based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee, Don Heck, Larry Liebner, and Jack Kirby. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.37:1 DVD exhibits a sharp picture, with fine details resolved well. Black levels are fairly inconsistent, occasionally raised to a level that gives the entire image a washed-out appearance. Shadow delineation is generally good, and when the black levels are at their deepest, the image can have an enjoyable sense of dimension. Colors are saturated well, with good lightness, and contrast is balanced well for the most part. Fleshtones appear fairly natural. Edge enhancement is noticeable on high-contrast transitions, and compression artifacts are distractingly noticeable on occasion. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #131 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read it because I need it! For an avid audio/video enthusiast such as myself, Widescreen Review literally blows away the competition in terms of technical expertise and professional journalism when covering the world of cinema. Whether it is for the home or the local movie theatre, the magazine's articles are the most complete from my experience. This is particularly evident with topics that are covered over multiple issues. Instead of what could be a brief overview, there appears to be a journalistic determination to “do it right or don't do it at all” attitude from the very beginning. There are three key factors that I believe contribute to this achievement. One is the amount of research you do, and you do it with a resolve to touch as many bases as possible. Two is the amount of preparation that goes into each article or review, which most readers only get to read the tip of the iceberg as a finely polished product. Finally, your passion for the field you cover is as great or greater than that of your readers.
