A weapons manufacturer decides to become a superhero.

It was refreshing, back in 2008, to have a superhero movie that wasn't either grim or campy. And a dozen or so installments later, it still holds up as one of the better movies of the franchise - despite the fact that the plot becomes crap after the first 30 minutes.

Suit up for action with Robert Downey Jr. in the ultimate adventure movie you’ve been waiting for, Iron Man! When jet-setting genius-industrialist Tony Stark is captured in enemy territory, he builds a high-tech suit of armor to escape. Now, he’s on a mission to save the world as a hero who’s built, not born, to be unlike any other. Co-starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard and Jeff Bridges, it’s a fantastic, high-flying journey that is "hugely entertaining" (Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal).
