You get the comic-book unobtainium power source for free. Cell phones in SCIFs are so cliché now it's beyond dumb. And the Verizon Wireless phone working in Backobeyond, Afghanistan is just lame product placement.

...but could we please just go to DoD IG next time we spot super-spiffy weapons being illegally transfered to random Afghani warlords? It's not as if the perps won't dance the hemp fandango for that.1

But if you crank up the suspension-of-disbelief-o-meter, especially during scenes involving military stuff ("We have an AWAC (sic) and a Global Hawk in the area."), it's definitely worth watching.

1 Yeah, if the Marvelverse actually contained lawyers, Major Rhodes would be in a world of hurt for pretty much acting as an officer of Stark Industries.
