I am Ironman!


Tony Stark. Genius. Playboy millionaire. Prophet of death. Modern day Learnado da Vinci. He goes by many names and he's about to add one more to his list.



This flamboyant CEO of Stark Industries had his eyes opened after a near fatal accident happened to him while he was on a tour promoting his latest weapon system (The Jericho) in the mountainous regions of Afghanistan. Mortally wounded by weapons from his own company, he was saved by a scrawny looking scientist which planted an electromagnet in his chest to avoid the shrapnel from entering his heart and killing him. (I wonder how.. Imagine a hole as big as your fist on your chest and there's an electromagnet there..). Together with the scrawny scientist, he was held in an underground cell and forced to build the Jericho by rebels hiding in mountain caves. He had only a basic lab and parts scavenged from other weapons to build the Jericho. Rebels being rebels, Tony build something else instead. Not the Jericho missile system but an armour suit. Quite a crude one you may say but do pardon him as it was just his first attempt at building one and he only had ancient tools and scrap parts to work with. It resembles those from the age of King Arthur, but it did achieve what it was built for, KICK TERRORIST BUTT! It did more than that, it almost decimated the whole encampment. It was hilarious to see those extremist running in fear and shooting aimlessly at him.








Tony was a different man when he came back to the States. He immediately announced that Stark Industries would stop making weapons from that moment onwards. His partner and mentor, Obadiah obviously wasn't happy and did not agree with his rather brash action. He filed an injunction against Tony and locking him out of his own company. He claimed that Tony was still recovering from trauma after the kidnapping. After being disabled from his company, Tony continued developing and upgrading his armour suit..







How will it all end? Will we see the terrorist again? What are Obadiah's intentions? What is Tony up to? Catch Ironman at your local cinemas to find out!






Not bad of a movie. Watched it with ma bb recently. The cinema in both Gurney and Queensbay Mall was full on the opening day and the day after. Even when I went it was packed! Personally I would give it a 3.5/5. Tony Starks has a R8 in his collection of cars. The R8 was featured a few times too! Fuh! Best best!!

Tokmoh you gotta watch Ironman! Seriously it's good! Plus there's the R8's mighty roar for you to enjoy!

Gonna do a short write up for Full Metal Panic soon.

Finally, I went to watch the mvi and it's.....disappointing. The storyline was so-so, the main actor lacks the flair to make Tony Stark a character to be remembered, the action is too little.

Heard it's gonna have a sequel, well, it better do, with tonnes of GARness kick-ass action!!
