Just came back from a screening at work,
and it gets 2 thumbs up, and ranks as one of the best superhero
Downey Jr. is terrific in the part, as is the entire cast.
What really stands out is the story, which is legitimate,
and it's not just an excuse for mindless action (but when the action is there, you're going to enjoy it) FX are good, and the man in a suit is believable.
I won't spoil anything, but it's damn enjoyable,
suitable for most kids (aside from a little sexual innuendo and Stark in bed with a woman)
