Storyline

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.

Trivia

On his cell phone, James Rhodes has the numbers for O. Stane, H. Stark, T. Stark, J. Storm, S. Storm, and M. Stryker. O. Stane is most likely Obadiah Stane, an Iron Man villain. H. and T. Stark is clearly Howard and Tony Stark. J. and S. Storm are like Johnny Storm and Sue Storm of the Fantastic Four. M. Stryker could be Marcy Stryker, wife of William Stryker, the X-Men villain. This would also mark Stane's first "appearance" outside of the comics. See more »

Goofs

Tony says the life-support device makes him "look like Frankenstein." Frankenstein was the creator, not the monster (though this is a common mistake). See more »

Quotes

Rhodey: Why don't you just own up to it, Tony? You didn't trust me enough to be a part of this project.
Tony Stark: Rhodey ...
Rhodey: I mean, I'm your closest friend. I've always been in your corner.
Tony Stark: Come on, Rhodey. You're making this personal. We're friends. Why are you overreacting?
Rhodey: I'm the only one who sees it for what it is. Remember when your father took your stuff and put it into his weapon program, how betrayed you felt? Well, guess what, Tony. You're just like him.

The Invincible Iron Man: An alternative origin story
13 December 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The year before Iron Man was released and the Marvel Universe truly began we had The Invincible Iron Man an origin story that went heavily off the comic rails.

It all starts so innnocently and follows the story perfectly, but then faster than you can say Robert Downey Jnr suddenly were faced with the Mandarn, elemental warriors and a dragon.

Needless to say I wasn't impressed, this Errol Flynn looking Tony Stark and the questionable animation surrounding him didn't make matters any better.

Call me old school but I hate when origins stories are changed and this is ludicrous.

In fact it's so out there it's verging on silly.

One for hardcore fans but nobody else.

The Good:

Has its moments

The Bad:

Story is a bit fantastical

Animation is a tad hit and miss

Not even remotely loyal to the original story

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

A clear 50ft drop won't even wind you

Fin Fang Foom really should have been in this
