I thought Robert Downey Jr. was great as Tony Stark as well as Gwyneth Paltrow's (I thought she looked pretty dammed hot.) portrayal of Pepper Potts, Tony's assistant. I was so taken by the cast that I've decided to not shave for a week to see if I can pull off the whole Tony Stark, rebel-genius-look.
I LOVED the SUIT. I briefly toyed with the idea of buying Side Show's Life-Sized bust of the super hero, but at $700 dollars, I decided that it wasn't worth it. The back gets cut off abruptly and that kind of turned me off and it didn't show the whole chest. If it was the shoulders, full chest (with glowing arc-reactor) and back, THEN I'd buy it, but modify it so that it would look like it was being worked on in the lab, with various cables and wires connected to it for diagnostics and adjustments. CRAP. Now I want to buy it again and MAKE the full chest and back. Ah, I can dream, can't I? Speaking of dreams, the stewardess scenes were some of my favorite. A guy can dream, can't he? ONE DAY!
I missed the scene after the credits, but a friend told me what happened. I can't wait for the sequels!
