Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Iron Man: Rise of Technovore is a direct-to-video animated superhero film, linked to the theatrical release of Iron Man 3. It is filled with cartoon violence, fighting, shooting, chasing, explosions, and attempts to take over the world. Language includes a couple of uses of "s--t" and "bastard." And Iron Man shares a kiss with his girlfriend, Pepper Potts, who is shown in a bikini. There are also jokes about Tony Stark's drinking and womanizing. The video was produced in Japan, and Japanese is the default language on the DVD; U.S. viewers who wish to view the film in English must choose it from the menu. The DVD also contains trailers at startup for more violent video games and movies.
Pepper Potts is shown in a bikini. She and Tony Stark flirt a little from time to time and kiss at the end.
The movie features fairly strong comic book violence, with lots of fighting, shooting, explosions, and threats of taking over the world. One main character appears to die. (He is shown with shards of glass sticking out of his face.) The villain's arm is severed, with no blood shown. A character is stabbed in the chest during the final showdown. The bad guy evolves into a scary monster.
Language includes two uses of "s--t," and two uses of "bastard," in addition to uses of "damn," "hell," and "crap." "For God's sake" is also used.
Iron Man risks his life to save the lives of mankind, and he teams up with others for help. Also, somewhere in this muddled mess is a message about how important the love of a father can be in shaping a child's values.
Drugs / Tobacco /
It is mentioned jokingly that Tony Stark may have been drinking too much the night before, but nothing is shown, and nothing comes of this remark.
