"Based upon Marvel's iconic Super Hero, "Iron Man" tells the story of Tony Stark, a billionaire industrialist and genius inventor who is kidnapped and forced to build a devastating weapon. Instead, using his intelligence and ingenuity, Tony builds a high-tech suit of armor and escapes captivity. Upon his return to America, Tony must come to terms with his past. When he uncovers a nefarious plot with global implications, he dons his powerful armor and vows to protect the world as Iron Man."
What a way to start off the summer movie season! This movie is simply FANTASTIC! I am not a very big fan of the comic or the cartoon. Now, I am keen to know more about him! Robert Downey Jr. totally rocks as the lead roll and the rest of the cast are well suited for their rolls as well. As this is the first movie, the director did take his time to slowly tell his story on how Ironman came about. We can see the development of the Iron suit as well. Cool! The plot is simple and tells the start of Ironman. The pace is good, not too fast nor slow. It gives a pretty clear picture on how it came about. The CGI is simple great! I am now looking forward to the sequel to see him fight off the bad guys! Overall, I give this movie 4.5 stars out of 5. Go and watch it!
There is so many super heroes movies coming out this summer! Batman, The Incredible Hulk etc etc. Can foresee me spending more time in cinemas again! Hee...
PS: Pls stay at the end of the credits to see what is going to happen for the sequel! Yes! There is a sequel in the planning already! Coming in 2010!
