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 #25 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I want to see product reviews of home theatre equipment that non-millionaires can afford to own. Reading articles about $50,000 home theatre setups is admittedly rather fun but, in practical terms, the info is really useless to me. While Darling Wife and I make a decent living, there's no way we can spend that kind of money on a home theatre. What I also really like and want to see: Practical advice articles that help people who are at least minimally technically competent to assess their needs and assemble a home theatre. That is, a periodic (yearly? twice yearly?) in-depth look at points to consider and equipment to buy to assemble a good high definition home theatre. Ideally, it would examine several total package price points. If you're willing to spend $10,000, here's what we recommend in terms of equipment and how to connect/install them. If your budget is smaller, here's what we recommend. If your budget is somewhat larger than $10,000, do this instead. Yes, I know you have your reference systems section each month, but an explanatory article would be nice, too. Finally, keep us up-to-date on the development of high definition DVDs and DVD players. This is what I'd like to see.
