Alsso, let's get a couple of frivalous points out of the way:

1) Gwyneth Paltrow looks hot, I'd hit it, and so would you
2) Jeff Bridges is looking portly, I think he might have diabeetus.

And on to my review:

It was a really enjoyable and solid film I kinda saw some of the plot points coming 10 miles off but that didn't stop me having a great time. I like the touches of humor spread throughout the film, esp Paltrow's 'taking out the trash' line haha.

Downey Jr IS the film almost, his charisma is like a 50 tonne elephant. I'm not sure how good it would have been with another actor, but as things go, it's downey Jr and it is great like that.

I don't have many criticisms but one would be that the ending felt kinda rushed. Also, I didn't like how
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Obadiah casually mentions the term 'iron mongers' when talking to Stark at one point
, it didn't seem right. Neither of these stopped me from enjoying the film though.

Ok that's all folks
