iron man is a latest film about super-hero based on marvel comics character. the story is about a billionaire industrialist, tony stark who has made a fortune by inventing and selling military weapons.

stark is ambushed and abducted by terrorists short after his demonstration of a newly invented missile called ‘jericho.’ he wakes up in a cave where he is held imprisoned and realizes that he now has a device attached on his chest which is built by another captive, dr. yinsen in order to save his life.

the terrorist demands him to build jerocho for them by using his own products, the products from stark industries. instead, stark and yinsen together they build a miniature arc reactor and a prototype iron armor suit which soon helps him to escape and change the course of his life forever.

the film is adapted from marvel comics superhero, iron man, directed by jon favreau; starring robert downey, jr. as tony stark, terrence howard as jim rhodes, jeff bridges as obadiah stane, and the lovely gwyneth paltrow as pepper potts.

well, i am very impressed by the film, it has successfully brought up the comic character to life so brilliant. so far, ‘iron man’ becomes my most favorite film from marvel. cg effect used in this film looks so real, and incredibly stunning. and if you think the user interface in minority report is so advance, you may think again when you see interactive three dimensional holograms in stark’s lab.

in short, iron man sparks from beginning to the end. just forget all about super-heroes with twisted miserable souls and get ready to enjoy the ride extravaganza. go watch it in theatre now! strongly recommended.

p.s. in the film, you will see three of iron man’s armors which are the original mk i (mark one), mk ii (mark two, in the film version it’s in silver not gold), and mk iii (mark three), and also the villain monger. (you may see the list of iron man’s armors on wiki.)
