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?

This was a four or better animation, however when I purchased the movie, I thought I was getting the english dubbed version and got Japanese speech and english subtitles. The voice stars listed where for the english dubbed version. Usually I prefer the original language with english subtitles for movies in other languages as I hate the speech and lip movement not matching. In animation that doesn't really apply as the lip movement and speech don't sync anyways. What really bothers me in a movie like this and having to read the subtitles is that it distracts you from the wonderful anime that the artists worked so hard on. You can't enjoy visuals for having to look down and read the subtitles.

If you are looking at all these terrible review but are like "But it's Ironman! I love that guy!" let this one be the final one you read.

I know it has Ironman (Tony Stark, the king of kool, the man with the plan, Captain Kickass, a real hero who doesn't use magic handtools or jump around in the shadows wearing pajamas)

I know it this whole Mavel and the Avengers thing is pretty big right now.

I know the animation looks slick, and it is, but....

Youtube the two cool fight scenes. If you must see it all watch it with the sound off or else you will hear your childhood getting beaten with cheesy anime cliches, dialogue that ranges from getting kicked in the one testicle cringe-worthy to "wat?". It's like the writers just copy pasted jokes from '90s b-movies. The story is something roughly like if M. Night. Shamallama was perpetually 12 and maybe a little mentally handicap.

It's a shame for sure. It is loaded with potential. The animation is clean and fast, the characters are all well established (I mean in general, you will have no idea who the hell anyone is if you just watch this steaming pile of broken dreams). It even has bloody TONY STARK, just starkin' it up. *Sigh* To bad it just sucks.

If you did watch this and are reading this anyway, what is up with Stane Jr.? Like wow, way to animoo for me.
