Tony Stark is kidnapped and forced to create a devastating weapon of mass destruction. Tony, not one to take orders, decides to turn the tables and, outsmarting his abductors, builds a super cool suit of armor, which he uses to thrash the bad guys into oblivion.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
I actually only saw this for the first time recently, but it cements my feeling that of the films in the Avengers series that I have seen (Iron Man, Capt. Am., Thor) are well done for what they are, but far from great. A solid 3/5, but not quite as good as Captain American for me.
Robert Downey jr. is perfectly cast as playboy entertainer and inventor Tony Stark turned into superhero Iron Man. Phenomenal flying effects. Hilariously funny at times. Great commentary on the weapon industry. Jeff Bridges actually make a good villain.
Excellent film! Un des rares films de superhéros qui obtient la note de passage! Jouant une espèce de copie d'un Elon Musk téméraire et encore plus excentrique, Robert Downey est vraiment PARFAIT! Histoire simple, mais quand même intéressante, trouvant le moyen de critiquer le patriotisme et l'industrie de l'armement des USA (ah oui, vos armes se retrouvent dans les mains des Talibans?). Un film super fun.
RDJ brings real verve to his portrayal, the supporting cast are excellent and the setup is contemporary and clever. Favreau keeps things moving nicely and the entire piece balances well the tension between comedy, drama and thrills. Starts the Marvel party with a real bang, let down only slightly by the rather underwhelming metal man clash finale.
