Ironman (2008) PG13 - 4½ Stars

Now here is a movie from Marvel studios, that if you can get past the fact that one man can erect this type of suit on his own in a cave, than you can truly enjoy the movie. I liked this movie a lot maybe for the fact that this spoiled rich kid actually finds out he can be a pretty nice guy while trying to protect the world from the evil his company has been producing. Special effects are awesome and acting is good.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), is the wealthy young CEO and inventor of one of America's most profitable companies manufacturing weapons. The company is so successful, they have just invented the world's most destructive missile of the 21st century. While Tony is on an important assignment to show the effects of his missile, he is kidnapped and taken prisoner by an enemy wanted to learn his secrets.

Tony is locked up and forced to design the same type missile but instead constructs a set of iron armor to protect him as he makes his way free from his captives. What he produces is quite something else. A one man self protection suit equipped with flam throwing torches and nuclear propulsion. As he takes out the bad men and travels back to his home, he is eager to produce something as powerful in his home lab. The Ironman outfit is created with such great capabilities, it can take on the world.

But Tony is forced to build an even better more streamlined suit, when he discovers a deadly conspiracy of global proportions. Along with the help of his secretary, Virginia "Pepper" Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), he is able save the world from the evil and other villains.
