The screenplay writing was done by the teams of Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, and Art Marcum and Matt Holloway and starred Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man along with Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges, Shaun Toub, and Gwyneth Paltrow in supporting roles.
Undoubtedly, The storyline of the movie is both excellent and interesting. The screenplay of the movie is good and keeps you intact with the movie during the whole screen time. Furthermore, as the movie goes on, you will fall in love with character of Tony Stark aka Iron Man and gets connected with the movie. Dialogues of the movie are both effective and funny at some points. In addition, B.G.M of the movie is also good.
Jon Favreau has done an excellent job as an director because he is able to build up all the characters of the movie with appropriate depth. Also he has been able to handle the VFX work of the movie so excellently that all the VFX scenes of the movie are a treat to watch. In other words, the VFX of the movie is also excellent and acts as a silver lining.
The cast of the movie is nice. Robert Drowney Jr is excellent and has lived up to the character. The supporting cast wisely does not try to one-up him. Gwyneth Paltrow plays Pepper Potts as a woman who is seriously concerned that this goofball will kill himself. Jeff Bridges makes Obadiah Stane one of the great superhero villains by seeming plausibly concerned about the stock price. Terrence Howard, as Col. Rhodes, is at every moment a conventional straight arrow.
