I really wanted to watch this movie to see how they would handle the character, the suit, the bit-players and let's just say this movie turned out to be pretty good. The movie starts off with a bang, there are a few flash-backs and then it dives right in. The pacing is taut and even with a dip here and there, Robert Downey Jr keeps things rocking. He is PERFECT for the role and his one-liners and humor really lend something to the character. The various gadgets and explanations of different components of the suits is handled adequately and the cgi is really realistic. I have a feeling that very few people will mind the suit. Terrence Howard is excellent again, although extremely underused. Paltrow is adequate but I smell a sequel with her role explored further. There are plenty of protagonists to deal with but fortunately for us all, things are kept somewhat simple and the range of baddies is limited. This summer movie season is starting off early and with a bang people Give this one a go 4/5 OSNN stars.
