Movie Description from Yahoo! Movies: Tony Stark is 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. When he uncovers a nefarious plot with global implications, he dons his powerful armor and vows to protect the world as Iron Man.
I've never heard of Iron Man before this movie came out so I didn't know what to expect.
Tony Stark makes weapons for the military. While in Afghanistan, he is kidnapped. The soldiers traveling with him are killed by the very weapons he made to protect them. They hold Tony prisoner asking him make a missile. Instead Tony makes a suit of iron to help him escape. Once he's home safe and sound, Tony decides to longer make the weapons. He does however, make an new and improved Iron Man suit.
I enjoyed the movie. I thought Robert Doweny Jr. looked hot. My favorite scene in the entire movie was when he's testing the boots. The first time he tests them, the blast sends him flying backwards onto a wall. Once he hits the ground, the robot sprays him with the fire extinguishers. I was busting up laughing. I had my hubby rewind that part a couple of times.
Here is the clip for your enjoyment.
