Iron Man (2008)

Film details


Action. Billionaire weapons industrialist Tony Stark is captured by insurgents and is forced to build weapons in a desert cave. Instead, he uses the materials to build a makeshift suit of armour and he duly escapes. Back in the States he refines the design into a powerful fighting machine and sets about righting the injustices caused by his own company's weapons. But not everyone he knows wants to let that happen.
