Iron Man (2008)

Back to comic books - this time with a loose cannon, self-involved, and cavalier hero, and of course he's a billionaire too.

Tony Stark co-owns a wildly successful weapons manufacturing corporation, in fact he's the inventive force behind it. When he is captured and wounded in Afghanistan, he dresses his wound with a powerful energy thingy that helps him escape his captors. Once he's back home and has gained clarity, he decides to turn his trinket into powering an armoured suit and he fights misuse of his company's weapons and then his own company.

As far as action hero flicks go, this one is full of sophisticated and adult humour making it far more successful among young adults as opposed to the teen gang. Robert Downey Jr. makes the film with usual cunning and jerky movements.
