    Not as good as X-Men but they never were. Quite a few good one-liners. Scarlett J. is gorgeous as usual. Downey Jr. is the star, as he should be. I give it a B. Best line hands down is when Iron Man calls Thor "Point Break", a reference completely lost on my daughter. I never liked Captain America as a kid and they made appropriate fun of him I guess. I liked the guy playing the Hulk, :dontknow:

    Great news, thanks. I was afraid RDJ wouldn't get enough screen time, since every other actor is a major snooze. (Well, maybe except for SamJack, who in all honesty is miscast.)

    I thought it was much better than Xmen. I would give it a solid A and put it in the top 3 comic book movies of all time just behind Superman and barely ahead of Spiderman 2. It had everything a comic geek could want in a movie especially one that read The Avengers. Great snappy dialogue that reminded me of Aaron Sorkin-lite. I am going to go see it again in IMAX.
