no respect for an epic story
OK, I'm a big superman fan and for that matter I'm a fan of just about
every superhero. I'm also a big fan of all the DC animated projects,
especially justice league unlimited, but this was totally screwed up!
80 mins is nowhere near long enough to tell this story for a start. its
obvious that a trilogy would have served the story far better, superman
dies at the end of the first movie, reign of the supermen for the 2nd
and then the return in the last. it was ridiculous that not a single
other hero turned up to help fight doomsday when in the comic every man
and his dog made an appearance, which only shows how tough doomsday was
to beat in the first place, i think it only took supes about 25mins
(dvd time) to kill doomsday, thats crazy!, and then there is no mention
of his body for the rest of the film. i also have to say i thought the
animation was very average at best, it was too close to all the other
DC animations, which look great, but the minor changes made in this
film just brought the whole quality down. this film should have been
all CGI. lets hope DC have enough sense to remake this epic story with
the respect it deserves....

It would have been better if they had showed it on T.V. with commercials.
As a movie it's entertaining. It's the kind of thing you'd sit down
with a bunch of friends with a bowl of popcorn and have fun. If that's
what you want it for your not going to be disappointed. But there are
some people would look for more in comic book adaptations. They want it
to stay true to the source material... or else! I'm not so much like
the but I still felt as though it were a bit rushed. The fight with
DoomsDay went by surprisingly fast, and then the clone came out just as
quick. The reason for this is not crappy writing. The writing was
terrific and full of emotion. The true fault lies in the pace. The
people who made this stand alone movie are the same people who made the
popular animated series. When the shows are written for T.V. they have
a time restriction for commercials so scene that are made no matter how
interesting are cut off at a critical point. As it would appear the
same writers took that practice of pacing themselves as how they would
conduct with this film. Which is why important events like Superman's
death seem to go by at quick speed before the viewer is allowed to get
a grip on what's happening. If's this were made for T.V. (which it
might as well have been) this feeling of disconnect would not have
happened. The commercials would compensate in the build up of suspense.
Another problem is the fact that it IS a stand alone that has no
backing from the series which it bears a striking resemblance to aside
for every character looking Hispanic, more adult theme's and such
skilled animation that the show could never compete with. The violence
isn't so much intense as it is over done. Characters seem intent on
beating each other senseless until they die or pass out. In one scene
Luther beats that Superman clone to an extent that was just
excruciating. That's what the cartoons are like; lots of punches, loud
bang noises, and super beings running around throwing laser blasts at
each other through their hands. I enjoyed it but don't expect to much
from it. If you feel moved during a part consider that a bonus..
