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 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.
