Here's a movie with Robert Downey Jr. playing himself, and he's also an engineering genius.

***SPOILERS***
I really like this movie just because of Tony Stark’s humour and ideas. My favourite part was basically all the fighting scenes because I am a big fan of action movies. Tony’s idea of building a suit in a cave room surrounded by CCTV cameras was not the greatest idea ever and I thought he might get caught in the CCTV cameras, but he didn’t which was kind of surprising to me. You would think he gets caught but nope. The sad part for me was when Yinsen died; sacrificing himself so Tony could escape for his suit.
This movie was great in terms of action. Robert Downey Jr. did a great job in playing the role of Iron Man and Tony Stark.

Tony Stark, a genius billionaire, arrives in Iraq for a weapons presentation. Stark is attacked and this results in shrapnel piercing his chest, almost killing him. Stark is captured and is imprisoned for three months. During this time, Stark makes use of his technical prowess and begins building an iron suit that would eventually allow him to escape the confines of the cave. He is able to escape the cave and learns of an evil plot, and decides that as Iron Man, he will protect everyone. Upon his homecoming, Stark begins to work on the new Iron Man suit to perfect it. Rating: 3/5

I am iron man
Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all,
Or if he moves will he fall?
Is he alive or dead?
Has he thoughts within his head?
We'll just pass him there
Why should we even care?

He was turned to steel
In the great magnetic field
Where he traveled time
For the future of mankind

Nobody wants him
He just stares at the world
Planning his vengeance
That he will soon unfold

Now the time is here
For Iron Man to spread fear
Vengeance from the grave
Kills the people he once saved

Nobody wants him
They just turn their heads
Nobody helps him
Now he has his revenge

Heavy boots of lead
Fills his victims full of dread
Running as fast as they can
Iron Man lives again!

Robert Downey was tailor made for this role and his performance as Tony Stark the man who would become Iron Man is first rate. They went through the origin and my favorite aspect is having Jeff Bridges as the lead villain. His corporate baddie is the right amount of conniving nastiness and added a major component to the movie. And yes there's plenty of high flying action to keep the avid comic book fans attention.

Is it better to be feared or respected? I say.....is it too much to ask for both? Some people prefer the weapon you never have to fire. I respectfully disagree. I PREFER the weapon you only have to fire once. That's how dad did it, that's how America does it....and it's worked out pretty well so far.

Stark is critically wounded in an ambush and imprisoned in a cave by the terrorist group the Ten Rings. An electromagnet built by fellow captive Dr. Yinsen (Shaun Toub) keeps the shrapnel in Stark's chest from reaching his heart and killing him.
