Editorial Reviews

Past and present collide in this epic adventure that reveals the origin of Iron Man. While raising the ruins of a long buried Chinese kingdom, billionaire inventor Tony Stark digs up far more than he bargained for. He unleashes an age-old prophecy that foretells the resurrection of the Mandarin, the emperor of China's darkest and most violent dynasty. In order to confront the destructive force, Tony creates an armored suit infused with high-tech weaponry. To stop the evil that he himself has raised form the earth, Tony must become his greatest invention ever--Iron Man! The newly born champion must travel to the four corners of the earth to battle the Mandarin's henchmen, the Elementals-- four magical warriors who harness the power of the elements--earth, water, wind, and fire--withdeadly chemistry. But is the Iron Knight, as he his known in the prophecy, strong enough to defy fate and turn back the malevolent forces hell-bent on earth's destruction?

You can disregard the other customer reviews as they are just people rating their inability to purchase the product they wanted. If you couldn't read the product information page far enough to see that this was a Marvel animated movie and not the live action movie starring Robert Downey Jr that is your own problem. Please don't write negative reviews of something that have nothing to do with the actual product. That is dishonest and doesn't help your fellow online shoppers.

That being said if you like Marvel's other animated movies (The Avengers, The Avengers 2, Dr. Strange etc...) then you will like this movie. The animation is top notch and the voice work is decent. It is a well done Iron Man origin story and I hope to see more animated movies in Marvel's future.

I'm going to take the con side of this debate. Having not really read many comics in the past 20 years or so I really haven't followed any of the Ultimates stuff. I have had it explained to me by a co-worker that's a big comic buff. It seems to make sense to update some heros' origins. After all Nick Fury and Dum Dum Dugan would be in their ninties these days. I understand that they are also keeping the original origins in place which is fine. Having said that, I don't know if this is an Ultimate storyline or not but I didn't care for it at all.

Taken as a stand alone movie, if viewed by someone with no idea of who Iron Man is, this is really run of the mill. Tony Stark wasn't a very cohesive character. As far as alter-egos go this one is kind of a hypocritical milksap. He makes a big deal out of not building weapons but has an entire room full of indestructible power armor. If the suits are for research why the need for powerful lasers and missles? The writer's seem to face the same dilemma most of Hollywood finds itself in these days. It's politically incorrect to endorse violence but you still have to give the audience a good action packed fight scene. As a result you get unrealistic portrayals of altruistic millionaire industrialists and pacifists with more weapons than Dirty Harry. I may be reading a little too much into a cartoon but the level of some of the violence here (one person gets executed with a gunshot to the back of the head) suggests this is for a mature audience. If this is the case the writers should have given the actions and motivations more depth.

The biggest problem is the time it takes to actually get to Iron Man. Once there the fight scenes are few and far between.

This is almost exactly what I hoped it wouldn't be. I could have tolerated a little tinkering with the standard origin, but what they came up with runs so contrary to what the Iron Man comic has been about that it's almost a slap in the face. For a hero and comic that's so concerned with the technological, to watch the storyline just kind of decompose into hokey mumbo jumbo while almost 44 years of history aren't just tossed to the side, but into the dirt, that's hard for me to swallow.

The fact is, the story wasn't just different, it was BAD. The pacing was awful, and honestly, the only parts really worth watching are the battle sequences (minus the awful non-event that is the "Mandarin" face-off). I was pleased with the Ultimate Avengers movies, I thought they portrayed Iron Man well, and while they didn't really portray either Ultimate Iron Man or classic Iron Man exactly right, as the character was more or less an amalgamation of the two, he was much closer than this take on him, which basically has him with this emo-angst, I have to prove something to daddy thing. Howard should have been left DEAD.

So to sum it up. What I thought was WRONG about Iron Man:

1) Hokey, mumbo-jumbo filled story that ignores Tony Starks genius and reduces him to merely a reactionary shell of the comic character.

2) Howard Stark...alive.

3) Rhodey...a wimp (Army medic? COME ON!!!).

4) Pepper Potts...BRITISH?!? Was that to add a touch of class?

5) Mandarin...a GHOST?!? An emperor from some obscure Chinese Dynasty? Bleh...

6) A dragon that ISN'T Fin Fang Foom...

7) Iron Man using a sword (BTW, the 'prophecy' angle is tired and lame)!

8) A final 'battle' that is a non-event.

THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN retcons the Iron Man mythos to a degree. Given that Tony Stark was originally wounded in Vietnam in the 1960s and he would have been in his sixties, something had to be done. So the creators brought the story into "now" and still maintained an Asian flavoring by setting Iron Man up against the Mandarin, one of Shellhead's oldest and coolest foes.

Die-hard purists are going to be disappointed in some aspects of the film, but it delivers enough action and characterization to get the job done. Strangely, though, we don't really get to know that much about Tony or his relationship with his dad, Howard Stark. We don't even get to know anything about why he created the Iron Man armor when he plainly states in the movie that he's never invented weapons. The Iron Man armor has been compared to a human-sized F16 fighter jet loaded to the gills with munitions and destructive power. Not to mention all the other cool, on-board technology.

The plot centers on Tony's efforts to help China raise a sunken city to engender goodwill that results in very profitable trade agreements. However, the Jade Dragons -- a local group -- have attacked the dig site on a number of occasions to stop the city's recovery. But Stark's technology is successful and the city returns to the surface. Unfortunately, that return also heralds of the mystical forces that will ultimately resurrect the Mandarin.

I'm not sure if pitting a technology-based hero against the supernatural was a good idea for a first Iron Man movie. For the fans like me, it wouldn't have been that much of a reach bccause we'd all be familiar with the Mandarin (though I'm pretty sure the comics alluded to the fact that the Mandarin's rings were alien tech at one point and not mystical).
