Format: DVD
Marvel knights collection is far from the usual morning kids stuff. It is a Motion comic, not a cartoon. This technique allows the artists to express themselves far better. It also let the viewers do his own interpretation of what he sees. You are not hammered by billions of images. The artwork is very focused on the expression of human emotions.

Motion comics usually puts a lot of pressure of the writers, as the story has to carry the viewers a lot more than in regular cartoons. Fortunatly, the Extermis plot is quite entertaining and is well divided into 6 chapters. People may complain that the story about the Origins of Iron man is re-hashed (one more time), but it is done in such a delicate way, that the veteran comic book reader will happily revisit it.

They packed this one with a lot of adders of unequal quality, but overall they give more value to this DVD.

For such a small price, you will get something to enjoy like good wine. Do not purchase this item for your 9 year old kid, it was not intended for him. I cannot wait to purchase more of the Marvel Knights serie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Motion comic sets a very high bar Dec 5 2010
By ReubenR - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This Iron Man DVD is a "motion comic" from Marvel Knights. They have taken the Extremis comic and turned it into a quasi-animated movie in six episodes. Before you discount this style of animation, note that the artwork is far superior to any of the other Marvel/DC "animated movies" (which all seem to look like slightly better versions of Cartoon Network cartoons) because it utilizes Adi Granov's original artwork with CGI enhancements of most of the tech and action scenes. The animation is fluid, and after only a few minutes you won't even realize you're not watching a fully-animated Marvel movie.

The strength of this DVD is Warren Ellis' storyline, which is more compelling than any recent comic book movie, except for perhaps The Dark Knight and the first Iron Man movie. This motion comic is unpredictable, hard-core, and exciting.

My only complaint about this DVD was N. Ronald Levine, who voiced the character of hippie Sal Kennedy - what a horrible casting choice! The scenes with Levine take you right out of the movie as you roll your eyes at the bad acting. Luckily, he's not in the movie much except for one scene in the middle.

If you're like me, every time you buy one of these Marvel or DC animated movies, you look at the cover art and eagerly hope that the product itself utilizes that same level of artistic expertise, only to discover that it's another Cartoon Network-looking piece of crap. But with Iron Man: Extremis, you finally get to see a full story with top-notch painted animation - and it's worth it!

I'm glad I gave this product a chance...and you will be too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story, Art, Animation, and Acting Dec 8 2010
By DG Makeshift - Published on
Format: DVD
I was really pleased with this DVD. The imagery was great, the animation (though not traditional) brought the story to life, and the actors not only fit the part, but gave a nice sense of reality and nuance to the characters. This is not in-your-face-over-acted-Saturday Morning Cartoons. And this is not for kids. It feels much more adult than any "super hero" animation out there, much more like a movie. Marvel has taken their comics seriously, and so did everyone else involved in bringing this motion comic together.

Hopefully Marvel will keep this up, and we'll see more of their best series given this treatment. As a fan of animation, it's great to see something new. As a fan of comics, it's great to see the original material shown in a new way. Instead of a watered-down version of how the characters are illustrated, it's the real image. Instead of other writers taking the original ideas and re-writing them, it's the original script. The result, a fresh and unique experience.

Hope to see more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Hot Dec 16 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: DVD
This is not for kids, but as far as story, suspense and action this is definitely worth having in your collection. The character development is great and the story is interesting and keeps you riveted to how it unfolds. Very often when new animated video show up they lack plausibility, consistency with the character, enough action to keep you involved as well as a good enough story to maintain your interest. This story does not have this problem. I highly recommend it. It is the true comic fans as I said initially, not for kids. You will enjoy. I am now a fan of the motion comics genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars episodes 3-6 are very good Dec 25 2012
By sparky_magic_rainbow - Published on
Format: DVD
I'm a 30 something female who has little interest in comics but had a chance to watch this for free. The story didnt pick up until third episode. Art is at a very high level but minus 1 because it was somewhat depressing and far too violent (two decapitations). Overall this is //not// a feel good kid's animation like "Batman The Animated Series."

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Motion Comic Yet March 29 2011
By Gumper Van Lier - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
While I purchased Iron Man: Extremis on iTunes awhile back, I purchased this DVD so I could watch it on my large HD TV. Wow, what a difference. Remember, this is a motion comic, not a typical animated feature. I have purchased all of Marvel's and DC's motion comics and this one is the one to beat. The animation is incredible; so detailed. The story is very good, too along with the voice acting. I love Spider-Woman: Agent of Sword too but the voice acting suffers on that one. Also there is no lip synching. Only the X-Men and this one have lip synching. I hope they do more of this kind of entertainment. This is not for children.
I knock it one star as I wish you could view it as one long movie instead of breaking it up into episodes. It's broken up like the comic but there should be an option to view it straight through. That's what DVDs are for - over, let's say, buying it digitally such as on iTunes. Another thing is the audio is compressed at 192 kilobits. DVDs allow 448 kilobits max. Maybe with all the extras, there wasn't enough room.
For $8.99, this is totally worth it.
