After surviving an unexpected attack in enemy territory, jet-setting industrialist Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) builds a high-tech suit of armour and vows to protect the world as Iron Man. Straight from the pages of the legendary comic book is a hero who is built - not born - to be unlike any other!
This is a fantastic film for anyone who enjoys comic book superheroes. It is better than bat-man because it isn't clogged with sentimental romantic padding (well a little bit only) it is much more kerrrpoowww and spplaattt with a bit of star wars techno-wonder thrown in for good measure. Not to be watched with your film buff hat on but with your pants over your Lycra.
