A movie follow up to the anime series by Mad House comes Iron Man's latest adventure where he seeks to launch his newest invention, the satellite Howard. However he and War Machine were attacked by a mysterious bio-tech seeking to wipe out all living organisms. As one of the leading technological geniuses of the world and a devil may care hero, he gets to the bottom of this, uncovering the Technovore with mysterious connections to Tony while saving the world from a machine who has long abandoned his humanity.
The anime format does wonders for the world of Iron Man, as his armor along with barrage of mechs he fights look nice and shiny, seeing them in action is a delight. The only drawback to the art style is that in brightly lit rooms and in the dark the lighting becomes very distracting, it's too bright in the former, and too dark in the latter. Good portions of the movie take place in either and it's far too distracting. However in other environments it looks just fine.
You got Iron Man; the genius playboy we all know and love, but he's not alone as we have War Machine fighting alongside him as well as SHIELD along with the ride which includes Director Nick Fury and his top agents Hawkeye and Black Widow. Punisher also makes a short lived but memorable enough appearance. All are represented pretty well from their characterization to their relationships and conflicts.
Technovore is the main antagonist and is a convincing psychopath with Ezekiel Stane's fragile state of mind as a result of his teen angst meshing together with the Technovore nanotech eating away at his humanity. He's similar to Carnage, in that he's near unstoppable and causes insane amounts of damage. You really feel that the world is at stake with his rampage and proves a difficult obstacle for our heroes to overcome.
Not too much to say, it's a decent enough action packed hour and a half that's sure to please fans of the Invincible Iron Man.
