DVD Review: IRON MAN Ultimate 2-Disc Edition
IRON MAN was just released on DVD and Blue-ray disc and if you haven’t gotten your copy yet, then what are you waiting for?
Seriously, this DVD is a must have. I don’t usually buy that many DVDs (I’m more of a renter), but Iron Man is one of the DVDs I must own. If only to watch the brilliant performance of Robert Downey Jr. over and over again.
One of my favorite movies of the summer and probably one of the best Comic Book adaptation to date, Iron Man is just perfect in every way. And if you haven’t seen the movie yet, this is your chance.
I’m not going to expend too much on how good the movie is, because it was successful enough that it doesn’t need anymore praise from me.
What I do want to talk about are the Special Features of the DVD, which include:
Deleted/Extended Scenes – These are nice if you want to see every single thing that was shot.
I Am Iron Man – These are a pretty great behind the scenes featurette. You can see how the suit was designed, how Robert Downey Jr. got became Tony Spark, and much more.
- The Journey Begins
- The Suit that makes the Iron Man
- The Walk of Destruction
- Grounded In Reality
- Beneath the Armor
- It’s All in the Details
- A Good Story, Well Told
The Invincible Iron Man – Featurettes about Iron Man the comic book. If you want to learn more about how Iron Man originally came to be a comic book, then this is for you.
- Friends & Foes
- The Definitive Iron Man
- Demon in a Bottle
- Extremis and Beyond
- Ultimate Iron Man
Wired: The Visual Effects of Iron Man – For the visual effects junkies.
Robert Downey Jr. Screen Test – This just proves how great Robert Downey Jr. is. So much fun to watch.
The Actor’s Process (scene rehearsal with cast) – You get a sneak peek into the rehearsal of a scene between Robert Downey Jr. and Jeff Bridges.

I don’t think there is much else to say about this DVD, except that I loved Iron Man, and love the DVD.
