I remember when I first saw this movie; because I literally got out of the hospital after having surgery for it; also we have the very first installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe! After being held captive in an Afghan cave, billionaire engineer Tony Stark creates a unique weaponized suit of armor to fight evil. It stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man, alongside Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges, Shaun Toub, and Gwyneth Paltrow. I knew enough about the character before going in and I must say that I am easily impressed. Thanks to the performances especially from its charismatic lead, awesome action scenes, humor and great visual effects we get a strong start for this MCU. Also Iron Monger is nothing more then a boardroom villain. A high recommendation for Marvel Fans!
