The animation and the Punisher aside, this was a big mess, 29 May 2015
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

Iron Man: Rise of Technovore did have some good ideas going for it, and considering the characters and that a good deal of animated superhero films are good, there was good potential here. Unfortunately, while with a couple of things that keep it from being unwatchable, Iron Man: Rise of Technovore wasted almost all the potential it had.

What saves Iron Man: Rise of Technovore from being unwatchable is the animation and the character of the Punisher. The animation is crisp and vibrant in colour, smooth in drawing and the backgrounds are incredibly dynamic and detailed, with a couple of funky visuals in the action. The Punisher's screen time is far too short, but when he is on screen the film actually is diverting and entertaining.

Everything else just doesn't work however, with the script and story being the biggest failures. Instead of having dialogue that has suspense, interest, wit and emotional resonance, the script manages to be devoid of all four. It is very talky to the point that parts just ramble on and on for forever, and sometimes with no real reason to. Even worse is that much of it also sounded incredibly awkward. The story is one big, drawn-out, incoherent mess, stretching everything(with the rambling dialogue being the offender here) to the point that the running time feels like an eternity. There were some really cool ideas here but nothing ever is explained(hence the incoherence complaint), and the pacing was like trudging through the thickest mud, that's how dull the film was.

Iron Man: Rise of Technovore has action scenes that are the very opposite of fun or suspenseful. Aside from a couple of funky visuals they are very pedestrian in pace and perfunctorily choreographed, complete with some horribly stupid moments. The film does a very bad job with the characterisation, only the Punisher is interesting. The heroes are bland and not always with much personality(Stark is stripped of everything that made him such a good character in the live-action films)- this is unforgivable seeing as when done well they are among the most entertaining superhero characters ever. While the villain is severely underdeveloped, with everything about him screaming of one-dimensional cliché. The voice acting, with the exceptions of a good job from Norman Reedus and a reasonably acceptable one from Matthew Mercer, often sounds like the voice actors were very unmotivated and like their hearts weren't in it. Eric Bauza is especially problematic, he's very monotone here. The music is forgettable at best and lacks energy, momentum or atmosphere, but the poor sound quality doesn't help(flat and distorted).

To conclude, Iron Man: Rise of Technovore has good animation and Punisher is a good character, to a lesser extent too two voice actors fare better than they deserved to, but despite the potential that's all the film has going for it. 2/10 Bethany Cox
