IRON MAN 2 is an action blockbuster starring Robert Downey Jnr in his second outing as the Marvel Comics superhero 'Iron Man'. It was passed ‘12A’ for moderate violence and bleeped strong language.

The BBFC’s Guidelines at ‘PG’ state that ‘Moderate violence, without detail, may be allowed if justified by its context (for example, history, comedy or fantasy)’. Although the story of Iron Man has many fantastical elements, there are also some scenes containing violence within a more realistic context. For example, in one scene we see a man being punched heavily in the stomach before having his face smashed into a stainless steel sink. These scene contains more detail than would be appropriate at 'PG' but, given the lack of sight of blood, was permissible at '12A' where the Guidelines state that ‘Moderate violence is allowed but should not dwell on detail. There should be no emphasis on injuries or blood’.

The Guidelines at ‘12A’/12' also state that 'The use of strong language (for example ‘fuck’) must be infrequent'. In IRON MAN 2 there are two bleeped but clearly identifiable uses of strong language. The film also contains occasional mild sex references.
