    Wouldn't rank it as being as good as X Men 2 but it certainly is a good movie, Downey Jr. is fantastic and it sets up the second movie very well (if you didn't stay til after the credits you missed out on probably the best part)

    Robert Downey Jr plays the Stark role brilliantly, was a good film though, could of been better but as we learned from the Punisher & Ghost Rider it could of been a lot worse

    enjoyed it, Downey was great. Even with a ropey script at times he made it sound decent.

    Nice to see a cameo from Stan Lee again.

    Someone put it up there with Batman Begins. Ok its good and a lot better than the other super hero movies. But not near Nolan's level.............yet.
    Ignore Max Power, he is no more, the future is Ron Burgundy. I'd love to be Ron Burgundy but they won't let me........

    saw this last night, loved it not as good as batman begins but better than any of the X-Men or Spiderman movies, friend had told me to stay after the credits, glad I did but I can't help but wish they weren't quite so long. Can't wait for the next one

    Saw it last night and thought it was a damn good crack.Never like the Bond films mostly because the bad guys are crap.Jeff Daniels character was convincingly evil.

    Not really into films like that but saw it last night and Downey makes it watchable. Have to say Gwyneth Paltrow who has the body of a deck chair normally looked fairly shapely at times. Just wondering was that CGI as well

    Saw this at the weekend. Have to say I though it was very good. Downey Jnr is excellent in the role. Great mix of action and humour, well acted, didn't overdo the CGI. All around an enjoyable cinematic experience.

    The trailer for The Incredible Hulk looked good too. And there was a trailer for a new Star Trek film, which I didn't realise they were making.

    All the more impressive considering it's the first in the franchise, whereas SP2 and XM2 ironed out the flaws in their first films to make an impressive second entry.

    Downey is note perfect as Stark, they couldn't have cast this better, Patrick Stewart as Professor X level of perfect casting. Gwyneth Paltrow brings it as Pepper Potts, big change from the last film I saw her in - Sylvia.

    Just a note to anyone going to see it, stay after the credits, there's a short sequence you won't want to miss out on.
    Bumping this, just because I went to see Infinity War for the second time tonight, in the same cinema I saw Iron Man in ten years ago, almost to the day.
