Editorial Reviews

The Invincible Iron Man May Have Met His Match In The New Serum Known As EXTREMIS!

An ill-fated attempt to re-create the legendary Super-Soldier Serum responsible for making classic heroes such as Captain America leads to the development of Extremis, a military nanotechnology serum that directly taps into the repair center of the body, giving an injured soldier the ability to heal himself at an alarmingly accelerated rate. Conflict erupts when the Extremis serum is injected into members of the local domestic militia, including Mallen, a soldier hell-bent on avenging the deaths of his family. When a brief battle between Iron Man and Mallen leaves billionaire Tony Stark in critical condition, it becomes clear that the only way for Stark to defeat the Extremis virus is to use it himself.

Boasting a fresh take on the Iron Man origin, highly acclaimed writing by master storyteller Warren Ellis and the magnificent artistry of Adi Granov, Iron Man: Extremis comes to life with the stellar blend of 2D- and 3D-motion comic animation that only Marvel Knights can deliver!

4.0 out of 5 stars Motion comic sets a very high bar December 5, 2010
By ReubenR
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Iron Man DVD is a "motion comic" from Marvel Knights. They have taken the Extremis comic and turned it into a quasi-animated movie in six episodes. Before you discount this style of animation, note that the artwork is far superior to any of the other Marvel/DC "animated movies" (which all seem to look like slightly better versions of Cartoon Network cartoons) because it utilizes Adi Granov's original artwork with CGI enhancements of most of the tech and action scenes. The animation is fluid, and after only a few minutes you won't even realize you're not watching a fully-animated Marvel movie.

The strength of this DVD is Warren Ellis' storyline, which is more compelling than any recent comic book movie, except for perhaps The Dark Knight and the first Iron Man movie. This motion comic is unpredictable, hard-core, and exciting.

My only complaint about this DVD was N. Ronald Levine, who voiced the character of hippie Sal Kennedy - what a horrible casting choice! The scenes with Levine take you right out of the movie as you roll your eyes at the bad acting. Luckily, he's not in the movie much except for one scene in the middle.

If you're like me, every time you buy one of these Marvel or DC animated movies, you look at the cover art and eagerly hope that the product itself utilizes that same level of artistic expertise, only to discover that it's another Cartoon Network-looking piece of crap. But with Iron Man: Extremis, you finally get to see a full story with top-notch painted animation - and it's worth it!

I'm glad I gave this product a chance...and you will be too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Hot December 16, 2010
Format:DVD
This is not for kids, but as far as story, suspense and action this is definitely worth having in your collection. The character development is great and the story is interesting and keeps you riveted to how it unfolds. Very often when new animated video show up they lack plausibility, consistency with the character, enough action to keep you involved as well as a good enough story to maintain your interest. This story does not have this problem. I highly recommend it. It is the true comic fans as I said initially, not for kids. You will enjoy. I am now a fan of the motion comics genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story, Art, Animation, and Acting December 8, 2010
Format:DVD
I was really pleased with this DVD. The imagery was great, the animation (though not traditional) brought the story to life, and the actors not only fit the part, but gave a nice sense of reality and nuance to the characters. This is not in-your-face-over-acted-Saturday Morning Cartoons. And this is not for kids. It feels much more adult than any "super hero" animation out there, much more like a movie. Marvel has taken their comics seriously, and so did everyone else involved in bringing this motion comic together.

Hopefully Marvel will keep this up, and we'll see more of their best series given this treatment. As a fan of animation, it's great to see something new. As a fan of comics, it's great to see the original material shown in a new way. Instead of a watered-down version of how the characters are illustrated, it's the real image. Instead of other writers taking the original ideas and re-writing them, it's the original script. The result, a fresh and unique experience.

Hope to see more!

4.0 out of 5 stars episodes 3-6 are very good December 25, 2012
Format:DVD
I'm a 30 something female who has little interest in comics but
had a chance to watch this for free. The story didnt pick up until
episode 3. The art is at a very high level but I subtracted 1 star
because it was somewhat depressing and far too violent. There were
2 decapitations. Overall this is /not/ a feel good kid's animation
like "Batman The Animated Series."

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Motion Comic Yet March 29, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While I purchased Iron Man: Extremis on iTunes awhile back, I purchased this DVD so I could watch it on my large HD TV. Wow, what a difference. Remember, this is a motion comic, not a typical animated feature. I have purchased all of Marvel's and DC's motion comics and this one is the one to beat. The animation is incredible; so detailed. The story is very good, too along with the voice acting. I love Spider-Woman: Agent of Sword too but the voice acting suffers on that one. Also there is no lip synching. Only the X-Men and this one have lip synching. I hope they do more of this kind of entertainment. This is not for children.
I knock it one star as I wish you could view it as one long movie instead of breaking it up into episodes. It's broken up like the comic but there should be an option to view it straight through. That's what DVDs are for - over, let's say, buying it digitally such as on iTunes. Another thing is the audio is compressed at 192 kilobits. DVDs allow 448 kilobits max. Maybe with all the extras, there wasn't enough room.
For $8.99, this is totally worth it.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It had been a very, very long time since I took the time to enjoy anything comic, outside of some of the movies being made about particular ones. If you are wondering if you should make the purchase, please hesitate no longer. My interest in Iron Man: Extremis came as a result of seeing the motion comic on iTunes, and the phrase "motion comic" was instantly new to me. What I didn't know at the time was that what you see in the motion comic comes directly from the pages of the graphic novel 'Iron Man: Extremis,' and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU PURCHASE the graphic novel FIRST! That way, reading the fantastic work of Warren Ellis & seeing the exquisite artwork of Adi Granov prepares for THE EXPERIENCE of what this particular motion comic does in setting the bar for others that would follow. Motion comics are comic books or graphic novels that were not originally intended for animation, and attempts to bring it to an audience "live" through the motions normally created through the traditional medium of animation. Certainly, the story and artwork are undoubtedly a powerful combination I have rarely witnessed. The interview with artist Adi Granov on this DVD explains it beautifully. At the time, I could not recall where I enjoyed a storyline and artwork together more. While not required, reading the particular motion comic's comic books or graphic novel first before viewing the motion comic, helps you to better appreciate the level of talent it takes to successfully translate one medium to one never planned nor purposed for animation, but still brings it better than most animations that are made simply for animation.
