Ok - let the summer blockbusters begin!
Iron Man is the first, imo, of the big blockbuster movies of summer. And OMG what a way to start!
Tony Stark (RDJ) is a gazillionaire playboy who owns a weapons company. He's also a crazy genius type who can build anything from practically nothing (thus the iron suit in a CAVE-LOL). When he's taken captive by insurgents who have his weapons, Tony needs to deal with the reality of what he does. He's creating weapons that are being used to kill innocent people.
So when the military refuses to act, Tony redesigns his desert Iron Man suit and goes after some bad guys! Woot.
Seriously, this movie is so much more than that. It's FUNNY and action-packed and it definitely draws you in.
A great way to start the summer movie season. A
