Hello everyone, i will divide this review in two parts. I will begin to review the movie itself on the first part and second i will talk about Frank's appearence.
Iron Man: Rise of Technovore review
First of all by the trailers i've seen, i really got thrilled by the coming of this animation but it was kind of a let down and i will explain why.
Tony Stark is launching a new satellite named Howard. The objective of this satellite is to watch the entire planet and look for suspected criminal behavior for the appropriate can prevent crimes. But this launch is interrupted by a super villain and like Tony this guy got a suit too, his suit is made of some sort of biomechanical in nature. This biomechanical suit (named Technovore) bests Iron Man and War Machine in battle and all the fuss this battle created caughts the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D.
S.H.I.E.L.D want to know more about this Technovore guy and detain Tony because is kind of obssessed with him and want to revenge is friend War Machine ( When they fought Technovore, Tony thought that War Machine were dead). They couldn't handle with Iron Man and they sent his best agents to handle him Hawkeye and Black Widow.
This guy Ezekiel Stane the "owner" of this Technovore suit is a superior kid with some bad philosophical nonsense which he talks about most of his screen time. He is son of a former villain of Iron Man, Obadiah Stane he is dead right know and when we take these conclusions at first we thought that Ezekiel may want to take revenge but no, he hated his father.
This movie itself was below average, bad dialogue and too much brightness. They could use a bit more of some capabilities of the Howard satellite but they didn't matter to use it.
The best part for me were the Punisher appearence it was the best eleven minutes of this animation. Frank helps Iron Man to get rid of Hawkeye and Black Widow the action weren't mind blowing but it was cool.
The voice acting of Frank ( Norman Reedus) was good and the character itself was well represented in this animation.
The Punisher and Iron Man encountered together because they were after some weapons dealers in the middle eastern and Iron Man was looking for some clues about Technovore. The Punisher helped Tony with some hints about Ezekiel.
Meanwhile the S.H.I.E.L.D. trace them and sent Hawkeye and Black Widow to capture them. Iron Man got hit by some arrows of Hawkeye's and get his suit jammed.While submitted by BW and Hawkeye, the Punisher helped him with a grenade and Iron Man fall in the roof of his car and they flee.
BW and H. chase them and make the Punisher's car foil. The Punisher tries to gain some time and throw them a flash grenade and try to submit them. (while Iron Man fully recharges his batteries because of the damage of the arrows of Hawkeye). He couldn't stand too much against them but it was enough for Iron Man recharged and flew away. In the next panel we see Frank in a motorcycle (the one that was used by BW and H. to pursue him) and getting away. ( don't understand why they let him go).
