Tony Stark was on top of the world, he just created the ultimate weapon. But on his way back from a demonstration his convoy
is attacked by terrorist and Tony is left near death. A fellow scientist builds a device to keep the shrapnel away from his
heart but the terrorist wants him to build an atomic weapon.
But instead Tony builds battle armor to help him escape, now free Tony is searching for a traitor within his own company
who is secretly selling weapons to America's enemies. Plus also refining the armor he created in the cave to help save lives.
This has got to be one of the best adaptations of a comic book ever, no major re-writes, a new villain, this is kind of cool.
The effects work, the cast works, everything is just great, finally a Marvel movie that gets it right. 10 STARS.
I agree again, this is the first truly perfect adaptation they've had yet, now if they can keep going with this trend then
we have us some worth while movies, but sadly I don't think that's going to be the case, after seeing promos for the new Punisher
movie it looks like this is the exception and not the rule. 10 STARS.
