IRON MAN The Movie : UFO Symbolism

Robert Downey Jr. plays Tony Stark, a billionaire and a genius at designing new age weapons to protect the sovereignty and the people of the United States of America. While he is in Afghanistan promoting his new weapons of mass destruction, he is attacked by a group of militants and ironically, they use weapons made at Stark Industries to target his convoy. Tony Stark wakes up all wired up in a cave attached to a car battery which is keeping a shrapnel from entering his heart. He has been held captive so he can build new weapons for the militants and this is when Tony Stark has an awakening of sorts and decides to go against the bad guys. He builds himself an Iron suit which can make him fly and has all the possible weapons embedded into his flying gear / suit ! This is where the adventure begins ...

The movie has multiple references to the UFO phenomena. For instance, the 1st time Tony Stark flies as the Iron Man after returning from captivity, he enters restriced air space and is caught on the radar at the Edwards Air Force Base, home to famous UFO sightings of the 60's. Soon Jets are scrambled to intercept the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), however in vain !
The movie has a lot of resonators from the current world scenario and is certainly worth watching more than once ! The movie ends with Tony Stark at a Bar chatting up with General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross (William Hurt) from Incredible Hulk about putting together a team ... Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk are teaming up .... This gets even more interesting ....
