Movie Summary

Jon Favreau

Tony Stark is back and the world knows he's Iron Man. The government wants to take possession of the Iron Man weapon but Tony refuses to allow it even though he has rival billionaire Justin Hammer also chomping at the bit to match his achievements. But Tony has bigger problems, as the piece of machinery now powering his heart is slowly killing him via poisoning and is shortening his life span day by day. Not only must he find some kind of cure if he is to survive, he must also battle Russian baddie Whiplash, who wants vengeance for his father's disgrace by Stark years earlier.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Stark: (at the Stark Expo) I'm not saying that the world is enjoying its longest period of uninterrupted peace in years because of me.
      [continuous cheering]
      I'm not saying that from the ashes of captivity, never has a greater phoenix metaphor been personified in human history. I'm not saying that Uncle Sam can kick back on a lawn chair, sipping on an iced tea because I haven't come across anyone who's man enough to go toe-to-toe with me on my best day.

    • Stern: (at the weaponized suit defense program hearing) Mr. Stark. Could we pick up now where we left off? Mr. Stark. Please.
      Stark: Yes, dear?
      Stern: Could I have your attention?
      Stark: Absolutely.
      Stern: Do you or do you not possess a specialised weapon?
      Stark: I do not.
      Stern: You do not?
      Stark: I do not. Well, it depends on how you define the word "weapon."
      Stern: The Iron Man weapon.
      Stark: My device does not fit that description.
      Stern: Well... How would you describe it?
      Stark: I would describe it by defining it as what it is, Senator.
      Stern: As?
      Stark: It's a high-tech prosthesis. [audience laughs] That is... That is... That's actually the most apt description I can make of it.
      Stern: It's a weapon. It's a weapon, Mr. Stark.
      Stark: Please, if your priority was actually the well-being of the American citizen...
      Stern: My priority is to get the Iron Man weapon turned over to the people of the United States of America.
      Stark: Well, you can forget it. I am Iron Man. The suit and I are one. To turn over the Iron Man suit would be to turn over myself, which is tantamount to indentured servitude or prostitution, depending in what state you're in. [audience laughs] You can't have it.

    • Stark: My bond is with the people. And I will serve this great nation at the pleasure of myself. If there's one thing I've proven it's that you can count on me to pleasure myself.

    • Vanko: My father is the reason you're alive.
      Stark: The reason I'm alive is 'cause you had a shot, you took it, you missed.
      Vanko: Did I? If you can make God bleed, the people will cease to believe in him. And there will be blood in the water. And the sharks will come. The truth is, all I have to do is sit here and watch as the world will consume you.
      Stark: Where will you be watching the world consume me from? That's right. A prison cell. I'll send you a bar of soap.
      Vanko: Hey, Tony, before you go, palladium in the chest, painful way to die.

    • Vanko: (regarding the robotic prototypes) What you want them do?
      Hammer: Well, long term, I want them to put me in the Pentagon for the next 25 years. I want to make Iron Man look like an antique. I wanna go to that Stark Expo, I wanna take a dump in Tony's front yard. You know what I'm talking about?
      Vanko: Haha, I can do that. No problem.
      Hammer: Yeah? Hey, fabulous! I love it.

    • Stark: You know, the question I get asked the most often is, "Tony, how do you go to the bathroom in the suit?"
      [long pause] Just like that.

    • Stark: Please. First thing, I need a little bodywork. I'll put in a little time at the lab. If we could send one of your goon squad down to The Coffee Bean, Cross Creek, for a Starbucks run, or something like that, that'd be nice.
      Coulson: I'm not here for that. I've been authorised by Director Fury to use any means necessary to keep you on premises. If you attempt to leave or play any games, I will tase you and watch Supernanny while you drool in the carpet. Okay?
      Stark: I think I got it, yeah.

    • Hammer: Let me tell you something, size does matter. Don't let anyone tell you different. This is an M1347.62 Minigun. Six individual barrels. The torso taker, powder maker. Our boys in uniform call it Uncle Gazpacho, or Puff the Magic Dragon. Okay.

    • Hammer: These are the cubans, baby. This is the cohibas, the montecristos. This is a kinetic-kill, side-winder vehicle with a secondary cyclotrimethylene-trinitramine RDX burst. It's capable of busting the bunker under the bunker you just busted. if it were any smarter it would write a book. A book that would make Ulysses look like it was written in crayon. It would read it to you. This is my Eiffel Tower. This is my Rachmaninoff's Third. My Pieta. It's completely elegant. And it's bafflingly beautiful. And it's capable of reducing the population of any standing structure to zero. I call it the Ex-Wife. That's the best I got.
