WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
A young Tony Stark is kidnapped by a radical Chinese organization set on releasing an ancient power. While kidnapped, Tony invents a suit of armor that will keep him alive and help him save the world.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
I have to admit that Iím not a real fan of the Marvel animation films. They have the animation quality of your typical Saturday morning cartoon, but it seems like theyíre written for the teenage crowd. The films seem to juggle both crowds and the end result is a boring time for all. IRON MAN is no exception to the rule.

Iíve never been that familiar with the Iron Man comic books, so it was nice to have an origin story to explain where he came from. I wouldíve preferred to wait until the Robert Downey Jr. Iron Man came out, but thatís ok. The dialogue in this film is pretty bad, and that goes back to questioning its target audience. The animation is rough, but it should please the casual cartoon fan under the age of 12. The story itself is very much that of a comic book but the movie is filled with plot holes and questions. However, if youíre questioning the plotline of an animated comic movie, then youíre probably missing the point.

I found IRON MAN to be a very boring film. I lost interest early on and the rest was pretty painful. There wasnít enough action to keep me entertained and the action that was there, was over pretty quickly. I repeat that Iím not a fan of Marvel animation films to begin with, and this movie didnít do anything to change my mind.
THE EXTRAS
Alternate opening sequence (3:03): I liked this opening sequence better because it sets up the story a lot better and prepares the viewer for whatís to come. Unfortunately, the director didnít feel the same way.

The Origin of Iron Man (11:58): This felt more like a mini-commentary but it turns out to be a good look at the film. Everyone involved is proud of their movie and they have a lot of nice things to say about it. The featurette isnít too in depth, but itís decent.

A Look at Dr. Strange (7:03): This is a long preview for the upcoming Marvel animated film Dr. Strange. I donít know much about Dr. Strange either and I wonder if theyíll make this into a live action film too.

There are also some Previews and some Concept Art
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
If youíre a fan of the Avenger series or just a fan of Iron Man in general, then Iím sure youíll dig this movie. I found it to be boring and a bad preview of whatís to come in the live-action film.
