Iron Man XXX (3½ Stars)

This is a well crafted pornographic version of "Iron Man" with Axel Braun's usual attention to detail. I don't know why this film is called a parody. It features the real Mandarin, whereas the Mandarin in "Iron Man 3" is a parody. The film is based on the Iron Man films, not the comics, unfortunately. Nick Fury appears in an after-credit scene to invite Tony Stark to join a new team. Perfect! Dale Dabone is an amazing Robert Downey Jr. lookalike.

There are a few small criticisms that I have. The Iron Man Mk. 1 suit is poorly designed. It isn't even a full suit, it's just metal plates that don't even cover the whole of Tony's body. The other criticism is the casting of Lexi Belle as Pepper Potts. She's much too attractive. The whole backstory of Pepper Potts in the comics is that she's a Plain Jane that Tony Stark doesn't notice while he's dating beautiful rich women. Even Gwyneth Paltrow in the films is too attractive, despite attempts to make her look plain.

I wish Vivid wouldn't sell its DVDs in such cheap cardboard packages. The plastic things that hold the disc in (tabs?) break too easily. Since the pictures are printed on the box, not on a paper inlay, I can't just put the DVD in another box. Shoddy packaging for great films.

P.S. If you decide to buy this film, make sure that it's the one I reviewed above, directed by Axel Braun. There's another film with the same name directed by Robert Black and published by Extreme Comixxx.

  1. This movie was so much better than the Dark Knight! Not just because of Dale Dabone either! The actors seemed better, the sex better, and the story certainly better! I am now on a mission to watch everything Axel Braun has ever done, starting with the ones that have Dale Dabone in them first of course! Who knew porn could be this entertaining?!?!

    1. I'm surprised you enjoyed it more than "Dark Knight XXX". Tomorrow I'll make you a list of his films so far. If you click on the labels at the side there are 25 films listed, but there are a few of his films that I haven't watched since starting the blog. I'll have to check which ones I've missed.
