It's enough to tide fans over until the live action flick arrives.
A Lone Warrior. A Suit of Armor. Our Only Hope. IRON MAN.
Invincible Iron Man was a very refreshing new take on the origin of a well loved Marvel superhero. I enjoyed it to an extent, but I still don't consider the movie anything more than average.
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. When his best friend James "Rhodey" Rhodes has been kidnapped, Tony travels to China to investigate, he is captured and badly injured by the Jade Dragons, his life only saved thanks to a Chinese shaman and Rhodes' skills as an army medic after a piece of shrapnel damages his heart. In order to confront the destructive force in this ultimate battle, 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 which becomes known as "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 with deadly chemistry.
Too awful to critique, really. Not only is the story a bastardization of his origin but the animation is absolutely awful. There's some unexpected attention to character complexities and relationships, but outside of that this film completely fails in every way possible. Why would Marvel put money on such crap?
Nothing all that bad, but nothing particularly great. The animation is not impressive at all, it seems as if there were budget issues because the movement looks unnatural. Where it really excels is in the storyline, which is a semi-origin story and Mandarin plot. I only wish there was more time spent with Iron Man in his suits instead of being just a plain, non-RDJ Tony.
This Marvel Comics animated film is above average with use poor 3D of Iron Man and four elementals in the action sequences that didn't excite me much. The action sequences do look a bit lacklustre, because the Elementals are basically one-trick ponies, and it doesn't take much effort for our hero to dispatch them one by one. Then again of course this is Tony Stark's first foray as a hero utilizing his suits for good, so he's not all that versed with battling enemies, and magical ones at that too. But in an effort to build up to the climatic finale, there are a couple of missteps.
