5.0 out of 5 stars An emotional and dark Superman story! March 2, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Lex Luthor (Anthony Lapaglia) had made a plan to poison Superman (James Denton) with solar radiation as the man-of-steel is dying. He has weeks to live as he must fulfill everything he's always dreamed of including revealing his secret identity to Lois (Christina Hendricks) and must do everything he can to live his life through the weeks of dying for he also must do battle against his old foes besides Lex like Parasite (Michel Gough, Atlas (Steve Blum) and even Samson (John Dimaggio).

Nicely done adaptation of Grant Morrison's graphic novel is an emotional and exciting Superman animated adventure and one of the better DC animated movies. The designs are quite different on the characters as if they appeared to look more like Peter "Aeon Flux creator" Chung's designs and i also like how this was the first appearence of Superwoman to appear. The animation is very good and so is the music, there is plenty of great action here and a great ending.

This Blu-Ray offers crystal picture and sound quality with terrific extras like featurettes, commentary, all-star Superman digital comic, sneek preview of "Green Lantern Emerald Knights" and two bonus Superman episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars It took me of guard February 24, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I never read the comic series of All-Star Superman so I didn't no anything about it except what I saw in the trailers. I saw Public Enemies and Apocalypse, the Superman/Batman team-ups, they were very good. The mood and the action in the story were driven by emotion and that was something I've never seen in a superhero story before, it was true to the character of who Superman is in my mind. It's heart felt, its funny, it has action and romance, its one of the best works from Dewayne McDuffie who recently deceased. The best Superman story I have ever seen a must for your collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Intriguing Tale Not Up To DCAU's Standards August 28, 2011
Format:DVD
Allow me, for the sake of justifying my complaints about this piece from the onset, to say that I am a subscriber to the theory that the DCAU crew is responsible for the absolute best incarnations of the DC comic characters of all time. Whenever I begin to burn out on the whole animated comic hero industry, a trip to my Batman the Animated Series collection or through a few Justice League Unlimited episodes are all it takes to remind me of everything that is right about the concept of turning static comic panels into animated life.

That said, I've noticed many of the crew responsible for the aforementioned properties (Bruce Timm, Alan Burnett, the late Dwayne McDuffie and company) have since shifted gears from weekly serial production to animated feature film work exclusively. While a few of these features have been pretty darn impressive (I enjoyed Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman/ Batman Public Enemies and Justice League Crisis on Two Earths to mention a few) but All Star Superman is one of the oddest animated films I've encountered, DCAU or otherwise, in quite some time.

All-Star Superman, on which this picture is based, is a twelve-issue comic book series featuring Superman that ran from November 2005 to October 2008. The series was written by Grant Morrison, drawn by Frank Quitely, digitally inked by Jamie Grant and published by DC Comics.

The film incarnation is actually the tenth in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line released by Warner Premiere and the first in the line that is rated PG (as opposed to the usual PG-13 rating).

The plot goes like this: Dr. Leo Quintum and his P.R.O.J.E.C.T. Team are exploring the Sun when they are sabotaged by a booby-trapped, genetically enhanced Lex Luthor clone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Superman movie April 29, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I didn't have the same emotional connection some wrote about, but felt this was very well done considering the increasingly annoying run-time limitations the WB imposes. The primary reason I didn't connect is that movies worth watching need more time to develop (especially one that attempt serious subject matter). Big reveals are meaningless when there's no time to let them sink in, and react naturally. How can you seriously appreciate anything with rushed progression?

That being said I think this is one of the very best DCAU movies to date. I didn't think I'd like the look of this movie (felt the preview art was soft, etc), but quickly took to it and the voice acting was excellent (including the first Lois Lane I liked that wasn't Dana Delany). Overall, in good company with Under the Red Hood, BB Return of Joker, JL Doom, and Wonder Woman.

I would have loved to see how Dwayne McDuffie could handle the subject with more time, but considering WB seems to find little merit in the storytelling benefits of longer DCAU features, this will be a about as good as they get. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars All-Star Superman (Single-Disc Edition) February 6, 2012
Format:DVD
If you ever wondered how Superman could possibly die? If he did die, what would happen to his essence? Is it possible for Superman to have children? Would Lex Luthor ever use his intellect for the good of humanity? Who would write Superman's obituary for the Daily Planet? Would the meek and mild reporter named Clark Kent perform a heroic act?

All Star Superman answers those questions and many more. It is a love story. It's a hero story with some nasty villains besides Alexander Joseph Luthor.

The main story takes place on Lois Lane's birthday where Superman whisks her off to the Fortress of Solitude. There she discovers more about Superman and Clark Kent.

The Fortress is a museum, workshop, laboratory and most of all a homage to an ancient planet known as Krypton. This hermitage is where Superman pursues his various interests and vocations. Except for his robot helpers it is a lonely, isolated place.

Perhaps this is the core of the film--Superman's unique loneliness and isolation. Growing up in Smallville he had his earth parents and special friends like Lana and Pete. In Metropolis he had Jimmy and Lois, but all in all Superman's existence was a lonely plight of a strange visitor from another world untouched by humanity's mortality.

The various battles, the inspiring music and the sad overtones of a demi-god facing his end are wrapped into a neat package. The poignant conversation between Superman and Lois about their genetic incompatibility is touching.

The conversation between Clark and Lex as they fight for survival in a prison riot reveals how Lex feels about Clark and how Clark feels about Lex. Lex and Superman could have been great friends.

There are many elements in this film as well as many characters.
