Tony Stark's life is the dream of any self-respecting man. He is incredibly rich, devilishly intelligent and in no less than superb degree is charming. He sleeps mostly with the girls who have been on the cover of Maxim, he drives exclusively on cars, under the hood of which there are not less horses than in the entire equestrian sport of any country, and the interview gives only sexy reporter, ready for a long, let's say a conversation before the first cocks. But one day, Tony's always sarcastic becomes a joke, he is taken prisoner by a group of Arab-terrorist appearance with the demand to "make us such a rocket" and subsequently - to kill. Stark and his companion in misfortune decide that to lose hope in general and stupid, and begin to build right before the eyes of nothing understanding the invaders best of Tony's evening suits.
It is always pleasant, when transparent as glass, aphorisms find a clear confirmation in our lives. So it happened with the phrase "If you want to do something well, do it yourself." The company Marvel, which owns the rights to all at least some decent heroes of graphic novels, was tired of how famously Hollywood turns her intellectual property into a shame, and took absolutely the entire production process under her control. The Iron Man is the first swallow of this approach, and it should be noted that the swallow has come out so fat that under it branches break.
The fact that the stars heavily winked at the project is noticeable already for the one who plays the main role. Downey Jr. in Hollywood is considered an eternal loser because Robert is more accustomed to look at the world from a bottled bottom or through a mirror powdered with white powder. To make such a person a titular face of a multimillion picture, which would be nice to justify the budget, the thing is extremely risky. That you had something to compare, I will say that the production of HF on his shoulders by Robert is akin to the appearance of Johnny Depp in the role of Jack Sparrow in one little-known picture. That is, this is when a good actor becomes also successful, and the viewer from this only wins. A more charming and charismatic Stark can not be imagined. Yes, and in his opponents he is not anyhow anybody, but similar to Lenin's grandfather Jeff Bridges, pushing his villainous speeches with frighteningly realistic notes in his voice. Well, any appearance on the screen of Gwyneth Paltrow should generally be celebrated at the state level - it is as usual so nice that I want to directly coat it with my coat and take it by the handle to some more cozy place than the screen of the cinema.
As the adaptation of a picture book, the film is immaculate. The dose of humor, action and serious non-pseudo-paraphonic dialogues were always on good pharmacy scales, and 186 million of the budget allow you not to think much about the quality of special effects. Such falsities and unfriendly relations with logic usual in such pictures are completely absent. The general message of the film reads easily: "We had you, Hollywood," and the main indicator is the phrase that ends the film. As Dreamworks once sneered in their Shrek over Disney standards, so Marvel tramples everything that was done before in the field of the genre.

Tony Stark. Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist. Son of legendary inventor and weapons contractor Howard Stark. When Tony Stark is assigned to give a weapons presentation to an Iraqi unit led by Lt. Col. James Rhodes, he's given a ride on enemy lines. That ride ends badly when Stark's Humvee that he's riding in is attacked by enemy combatants. He survives - barely - with a chest full of shrapnel and a car battery attached to his heart. In order to survive he comes up with a way to miniaturize the battery and figures out that the battery can power something else. Thus Iron Man is born. He uses the primitive device to escape from the cave in Iraq. Once back home, he then begins work on perfecting the Iron Man suit. But the man who was put in charge of Stark Industries has plans of his own to take over Tony's technology for other matters.
