: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges What Parents Should Know
: Parents need to know that kids may clamor to see this fast-paced, action-packed comic book-based adventure. But it's definitely more age-appropriate for teens than younger children. Although much of the violence is clearly meant to be based in the realm of sci-fi and fantasy — and/or is shown at a distance — there's plenty of it, from massive explosions to children held at gunpoint to super-powered fistfights. Some of the violence is war themed, and some characters get hurt and/or die. While much is made of lead character Tony Stark's devil-may-care lifestyle of fun and frolic, viewers also see him turn away from the more irresponsible aspects of playboy-hood. Language is minimal, and sexual content is more suggested than shown overall — though there are a few eyebrow-raising moments. —Common Sense Media
