Iron Man is based on a comic book series, another one that I haven’t read. The movie is about a playboy weapons’ manufacturer who is captured by militants and about how his life changes because of that incident.
It was a reasonably-fun movie, good in parts, pretty awesome in others, and not so good in others. If you’re a science fiction/gadgets geek you’ll enjoy the eye candy on offer. No, not that kind of eye candy. The movie starts with an AC-DC song and ends with a Black Sabbath song–nice touches especially in a theatre with a good sound system.
