This is the first of many of the Marvel comics movies that were brought to life in recent years, Iron Man is everything a superhero action flick should be and more. The story begins with arms manufacturer Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) who is taken hostage by a terrorist group, and realises that the weapons his company builds have been falling into the wrong hands. How can he get out of this predicament? Why build himself his own hi-tech armoured suit of course! Cracker of a sound track on this too featuring guitarist Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave, with the flick also starring the legendary Jeff Bridges and Gwyneth Paltrow.
