I have watched a lot of Iranian movies and I love them but they are similar in style (realistic long shots and slow cuts) and content (e.g. struggle of the society reflecting in children or seemingly mundane events). I doubt if all Iranians solely love this kind of movies. Japan, Korea, China, India, and Thailand have their commercial films besides independent art films going around in film festival circuit.

Is there a commercial movie industry in Iran making action or comedy films? What are the most acclaimed or highest-grossing "Hollywood-style" movies there?

You are in doubt if all Iranians solely love this kind of movies - you are right. From talks with Iranians some years ago, I know they like Hollywood films and the films were available via DVD.

Wikipedia offers more information about Commercial cinema in Iran
