I was left with one question in Iron Man....

So, Tony Stark has an electro magnet in his body to stop metal shards from reaching his heart. Metal shards take time to reach the heart, a couple weeks according to the doctor. So why is it, whenever the power source is removed from the magnet, his health degradation is immediate and intense?

Otherwise, awesome movie...

dramatic effect?

along those same lines, what is the powersource?
is it a superconducting magnet of some type that is being used to create energy through some sort of plausible, yet far-fetched tesla loop?

and why wouldn't you have the shards removed asap when you're back in the good u.s. of a, when you obviously have the money to spend?

all in all, a good movie, but yes, it does has its suspension of disbelief.

My only problem with this movie was the same problem I had with the original Hulk movie by Ang Lee (which I loved).

The acceleration of the villain's madness and willing to do dirt himself, as opposed to merely creating or hiring someone to do it for him.

In Iron Man, it's a tad more convenient, as they are coming to arrest him at the time, and he is cornered, but where is the security task force he would employ on such a project?

yadda yadda yadda

i loved this movie! It didn't bore me.

Maybe it doesn't kill immediately, but starts to hurt right away?
Maybe stress makes it more likely to be lethal quicker?
Maybe when the thing is pulled out he falls into a temporary time hole disruption, and we don't see that his time is going 2 weeks, where it is less than an hour for the rest of the world?
