Iron Man

I went to watch Iron Man a.k.a Orang Besi (yes, that was the translation given...no comment) on Saturday. The much awaited movie didn't disappoint the viewers.


The movie is about Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) the CEO of Stark Industries that produces advance weapons. Long story short, he was abducted in Afghanistan by terrorists and was held hostage in a cave together with Yinsen (Shaun Taub). The terrorists wanted him to build his Jericho missile using parts from other weapons. Tony was quite stunned as to how the terrorists got hold of his products and were using it for their own evil ways.

During the time given, Tony with the help of Yinsen, built a suit as an escape route. He managed to escape and once back in America he built a better suit while his 'business partner' Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges - the obvious bad guy from the start) got hold of the suit he used to escape the cave. Obadiah created his own version of the suit and produced the Iron Monger. Inevitably, Tony and Obadiah fight it out and of course Tony wins. The movie ends with Tony revealing that he is indeed Iron Man at a press conference.

Robert Downey Jr. did a great job playing Tony Stark and i can't wait for the next Iron Man movie. I remember watching him in Ally McBeal and he has aged a lot since then, but still a good actor. He was also the voice of Patrick Pewterschmidt if you watch Family Guy.


*Do wait around till after the credits, there's a little more to the movie
