IronMan is a typical Hollywood superhero movie

From the stable of "Marvel" comics after the stupendous success of Spiderman movies comes another superhero Movie "IronMan". Before stepping into the theatre i had no idea about the superhero nor had heard much about the movie, but despite that planned to take the step forward as that was the only thing which was giving me respite from the scorching Goa heat in May.

IronMan is a story about a rich genius entrepreneur Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr.) in the business of building ammunitions. One fine day he is kept captive in an Afghan cave to create a weapon for the rebels out there. He builds an iron suit to escape from there and improves on the design to build a superhero out of the same called "Iron Man" to fight against evil. By the end of the movie he is also awakened about the ill-effects of the manufacturing arms and how they could easily go into wrong hands.

Now what works for the movie is the way Tony Stark has played his role. His character has been very well built and the special effects in the movie are also worth mentioning. In addition the movie is also well supported by various other characters in the movie like Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow.

To summarize a nice movie to enjoy this summer and hopefully you would not come out disappointed from the theatre.

Rating 3/5
