Tony Stark (Downey Jr) is a mechanical genius, playboy businessman and CEO of a major weapons manufacturer whose family motto is, “Peace means having a bigger stick”. But when a trip to Afghanistan goes explosively wrong, he’s mortally wounded and captured by Talibanish baddies. So he hatches a hi-tech escape plan, which also gives birth to his ironclad, wrong-righting alter ego…
It’s not sure where to go once the final Iron Man suit is constructed, and seems in a rush to get there, but Downey Jr and the supporting cast are so perfectly placed we're already looking forward to the bound-to-be-better sequel.
