"Iron Man" is an action film about the fictional character, engineer, Tony Stark, who is suffering from a heart aliment. He secretly creates the superhero "Iron Man" with a exoskeleton, made of, you guessed it, iron. 

He also invents an apparatus to replace his weak heart, but it is poisoning his body, as seen in "Iron Man 2" (like you didn't see that sequel coming). Meanwhile, I'm watching the film thinking, "Dude, just get a heart transplant! It's much simpler...unless they give you the heart of a 90-year-old."

The film co-stars pretentious, irritating actress, Gwen Paltrow, un-affectionately known to bloggers all over the internet as "Fishsticks." Don't look at me, I wasn't the blogger that named her that, but I'm not really disagreeing, now am I.  Paltrow, who became famous because of her dad's connections, plays Stark's secretary, Virginia Potts. 

"Iron Man" is an entertaining movie, but very cliché and stereotypical of films in its genre. Rich lothario superhero out to save the world has been done before.
