Afghanistan. Genius, billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), who was there to demonstrate the new "Jericho" missile, is captured and imprisoned in a cave by the terrorist group the Ten Rings: their leader, Raza (Faran Tahir), offers Stark freedom in exchange for building a Jericho missile for the group. Tony, with the help of Yinsen (Shaun Toub), builds the Mark I, a weaponized suit of armor. Back in the US, this leads him to conflict within his own company. 


Iron Man, from the legendary comics to this terrific film. Director Jon Favreau - also starring as Happy Hogan, Tony's bodyguard and chauffeur - and Robert Downey Jr. made a high impact superhero film, and even non-comics fans can enjoy. Robert Downey Jr. perfectly fits the role, and I couldn't think of a better Tony Stark than him. There are few differences with the comics, but nothing important. The visual effects are amazing.
I end the review with this line: true Marvel fans always wait for the end-credit scene.


Yinsen: Don't waste it... don't waste your life, Stark.

Tony Stark: The truth is... I am Iron Man.
