Editorial Reviews

Billionaire Tony Stark, in his Iron Man armor, prevents an attack from a mysterious new foe, but innocent bystanders are killed, including his best friend War Machine, Lt. Colonel James Rhodes. Detained for questioning by S.H.I.E.L.D., Iron Man escapes, determined to find the mastermind behind the attack. Pursued by Black Widow and Hawkeye, Iron Man enlists the help of the ruthless vigilante The Punisher. But can the Armored Avenger handle what he finds when he catches the person responsible and is forced to face his deadliest weapon, a biotechnology called Technovore that could wipe out all life on the planet?

This is a classic example of Marvel outsourcing its animation; this movie was created almost wholly by an anime studio (Mad House of Trigun and Deathnote fame) with the American studio having very little input. So from that perspective, it succeeds as an anime film. The animation is gorgeous and there is the feeling of world-ending plots and over-the-top villains that are more android than human in their actions. If you're a fan of anime, it's all stuff you've seen before, and you might quite enjoy it.

That said, if you're watching this for the Iron Man feature, you may not want to bother. The narration itself is very disjointed, and the characters are all pretty two-dimensional as another reviewer pointed out. The story is spotty, and it seems like it makes very little sense (why would Nick Fury actively being trying to kill Tony Stark with mandroids? So that there is an excuse to put in more exciting action/mecha scenes, of course!) There's spotty science, and no one seems to be bothered by the question that's set up in the first five minutes of the film which is "Is it okay to send a giant spy satellite into space to spy on people's every move as a crime prevention measure?" The answer seems to be yes, because while that would make for a spectacular plot, that's not what the movie's about.

If by some chance you're a big Ezekiel Stane fan from the comics, you're the one who will be most disappointed at all. Ezekiel is nothing like his 616 counterpart. He is detached from reality, and has zero redeeming qualities. He looks about 14 and Tony Stark repeatedly talks about how he's stepping in as the adult to "scold" him for his best friend's murder. There is nothing of the conniving, off-the-rails Zeke from the comics.

You can rent this movie from multiple digital sources. If you absolutely NEED to see it, renting is the better alternative to buying it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another Epic Fail by Marvel Animation April 10, 2013
By Jacob G
Marvel animation is just simply not up to par with DC animation yet, and that's really too bad, especially since Marvel puts out much better live action films. Sadly, this trend continues w/ Marvel's latest offerings. I had higher hopes because I really enjoyed Tales of Asgard and Planet Hulk. I thought they were large steps in the right direction. Instead we get two steps backward. Let me give you specific reasons of what went wrong here:

1. Dialog - Bad, bad, bad. Especially the scenes between Pepper Potts and Tony. They are cliche-filled, they are cheesy, they are terrible. There are times even when Pepper's lines were three bad lines right in a row, that all said the same thing in a different way. Nick Fury was reduced to a caricature. Only the Punisher has some good lines, but his presence in the film is much more minor than the cover suggests. The opening flight scene between War Machine and Iron Man sets the bar very low as Tony taunts Rhodey over and over again using the same lines, and the movie never clears that bar.

2. Plot - VERY MINOR SPOILERS. The plot hinges around an attack on a space tower at the beginning of the film by this "Technovore." Because Tony was there, SHIELD wants to bring him in for questioning. How do they try to bring him in? By trying to kill him. Yes, because Tony won't come in for questioning, Fury authorizes Mandroids, Black Widow, and Hawkeye to kill him. Why the escalation in violence? Who knows? The movie never tells us. In that scene where Technovore destroys the space tower, he also kills everyone inside it. Everyone except Iron Man, of course. Why does he spare Tony when he can easily kill him? Who knows? The movie never tells us. Where does Technovore get his powers from? Who knows?

3.0 out of 5 stars Technovore Review April 21, 2013
At first I wasn't sure why so many were going to give this DVD bad reviews. Most commentaries were over the animation and dialogue.

Having watched the movie now, I can see where they are coming from.

From where I sit, Rise of the Technovore is a standard, mediocre anime with a Marvel character, covering and flavor to it.

It's a decent enough anime style if you don't mind how white washed it will be. The lines are rather rote and forced at times. If it didn't have the Marvel name and Iron Man attached to it, this would be one of thousands of animes that's out there and is quickly forgotten because it looks like all of the rest with this technological monster going to destroy the world, tentacles sprouting from it and the hero comes in with everything at dire odds and impossible to win the day yet he does so.

I can see why there are complaints of Punisher's appearance and cameo in this movie being so lack luster. And then Hawkeye and Blackwidow weren't much better off either.

If you look at this as standard anime fare, this is okay, watch it once and forget it. Move on to the next anime in the pile to watch.

But that this has the Marvel name and characters attached to it and the newest Marvel dvd movie out since the end of the MLG Productions and Lionsgate contract and the whole Disney now owns Marvel. People have a right to be upset. I'm glad we have a new dvd movie and that there's a promise of more Marvel Animated movies coming. But more could have been done. The animators could have done better.

Take a page from DC and WB and actually take some comic lines and adapt them to animation like they have. In the mean time, if this is what we continue to see, yes DC is going to own the arena for the direct to dvd animated movies. They are doing better when it comes to direct to dvds and television series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Convoluted & Slow
This version of Ironman was slow and I spent too much time trying to figure out what the hell was going on. The most interesting parts involved the Punisher and Hawkeye.
