Based on the classic Marvel comic character, the Iron Man but set in modern times during the War in Afghanistan.

Tony Stark is the head of Stark Industries – the Worlds leading supplier of military weapons. When visiting the launch of the new weapon, the Jericho missile, something goes wrong. The afghans attack the envoy and take Stark prisoner.

Not only is Stark the head of the company but he is a technical genius and it is for this reason they keep him in a cave and force him to build weapons for them. Little do they know but he is in fact building a first generation Iron Man metal suit. Which when complete he uses to escape his captives.

Back in the real world he redesigns it and builds a proper version and begins to have a change of heart and start protecting the people who he has put in harms way with his missiles.

The Iron Man himself, the effects and action are truly amazing but this film deserves to be a lot better than it is, and the reason is the lead actor, Downey Jr. is a very poor choice from the casting director. The guy is lame, he has not really done anything of note in his career, and does not have the right elements to pull of this character properly. Having said that, maybe its just me! If you’re a fan of comic book adaptations and super heroes, you’ll love this.

Director: Jon Favreau
Writer: Mark Fergus, Hawk Ostby
