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.

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?

I literally just watched this flaming turd and writing about it is only making me more angry. My head hurts from trying to figure out if the plot and logic were going over my head or it was just absent. I previously read the bad reviews and always knew It wasn't going to be a great movie but hey, I'm going to need it for my collection and it comes with a ticket to see Amazing Spider-Man 2 which I'm going to see anyway. The reviews don't do this garbage justice because there is no amount of words that can express how really bad this movie is. I thought people were exaggerating, since that's what a lot of people said about Iron Man 2. I own every direct to video movie Marvel has put out until now and even the worst one is pretty good.

There's plenty of people saying how bad this is. Let me illustrate (I'll try not to use too many "spoilers") First off, this movie has no logic whatsoever.

A dude in a white suit kills a bunch of people and attempted to destroy one of his satellites and all Iron Man does is lecture to him about killing being bad (until he gets away). This guy immobilizes Iron Man and blows up the building as War Machine comes in. (Keep that in your mind)

Nick Fury has SHIELD detain Iron Man because 1. He is the sole survivor and wants to debrief him so Nick Fury doesn't get chewed out by politicians 2. So Iron Man will not get killed by the guy in the white suit. To stop him from going after the guy in the white suit Nick Fury sends all of shield to try to get Iron Man back even if they have to kill him. That's right SHIELD is trying to kill Iron Man so he will not get killed by the guy in the white suit.
