Favreau returns to direct Downey Jr as the man in the metal suit. As expected, the action is big, bold and brash, the first appearance of Rourke in his Whiplash guise at the Monaco Grand Prix is a masterpiece of flying debris and crackling electricity. But it is Downey Jr who steals the show, playing Tony Stark as Bruce Wayne minus the guilt, revelling in his wealth and the public's adoration of his Iron Man persona. Lovingly made multiplex action fodder with street smarts, it won't change the world but it'll keep you giddily entertained for two hours.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
