Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Fueled by hatred and jealousy, Lex Luthor masterminds an elaborate plot to kill the Man of Steel – and it works. Poisoned by solar radiation, Superman is dying. With weeks to live, he fulfills his life’s dreams – especially revealing his true identity to Lois Lane – until Luthor proclaims his ultimate plan to control the world with no alien hero to stop him. Powers fading, Superman engages in a spectacular deadly battle with Luthor that could truly trigger the end of Earth’s Greatest Protector. This startling and gripping DC Universe Animated Original Movie stars the voice talents of James Denton, Anthony LaPaglia, Christina Hendricks and Ed Asner.

Amazon.com

Based on the award-winning graphic novel series by Grant Morrison, this DC Universe Animated Original Movie posits the ultimate question for Superman fans--how would the Man of Steel spend his final days on Earth?--in a unique and genuinely thought-provoking feature film. Exposed to solar radiation by Lex Luthor (voiced by Anthony LaPaglia), Superman (James Denton) learns that he is dying, and devotes his remaining time to Lois Lane (Mad Men's Christina Hendricks), to whom he grants 24 hours of super powers. Their bittersweet finale is interrupted by a host of villains, including the Parasite and the supercomputer Solaris, as well as Luthor himself, who uses Superman's own powers against his archenemy in one final battle. The action is plentiful and sprawling against a densely plotted backdrop, but what sets All-Star Superman apart from other DCU features is what made Morrison's source material so special: how does one man--even one as invincible as Superman--seek to define his life and legacy? The late Dwayne McDuffie's script addresses the subject in mature and fulfilling terms, while the vocal cast, which includes Ed Asner (as Perry White), Arnold Vosloo (Bar-El), and Frances Conroy (Martha Kent), present a range of performances that compare favorably to the Tim Daly/Dana Delaney-led cast of Superman: The Animated Series. The single-disc edition is light on extras, with only previews of DCU's Green Lantern: Emerald Knights and Superman/Batman Apocalypse on the disc. --Paul Gaita

Customer Reviews

I recommend you read the comic this is based off of.

Central story line is also weak, with one of the weakest ending, not at all satisfactory to the viewer's expectation, no real conclusion.
T. Hoang
The animation is very good and so is the music, there is plenty of great action here and a great ending.

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.

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.

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.

It will be difficult for Bruce Timm and Co. to beat three of their last four: "Batman: Under The Red Hood," "Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths" and now, this, the adaptation of arguably the best Superman story in the character's long history.

Even Timm admits that this 12-chapter-but-each-issue-stands-alone tale was hard to adapt. Dwayne McDuffie (now an Ancestor) did a great job, focusing the often metaphysical, mythological story on the main three (four): Superman/Clark Kent, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor. Lovers of the amazing story by Grant Morrison (one of the top writers in comics because even when he falls short, his work is more interesting that others' successes) will be disappointed to know what was cut--the Bizarro storyline, the Jimmy Olsen issue, the "Earth Q"/What-does-Superman-mean story and the Smallville/Supermen Squad story. But what was kept in was extremely faithful to what Morrison and artist Frank Quitely created.

Contrary to many opinions here, the voices, in my opinion, are great and appropriate to the project. James Denton (Superman) is strong and vulnerable, Christina Hendricks (Lois Lane) shifts from caring to flirty to cynical to faithful, and Anthony LaPaglia (Lex Luthor) is consumed by jealousy and power. Luthor just wants to win, regardless of the costs. And he does. Then he loses more than he ever thought he would. And under McDuffie, involved in an ending/beginning that is as thought-provocating as it was under Morrison.

The Two-Disc Special Edition includes a documentary on Morrison's ideas about "All Star Superman," the now-standard "sneak peek" into the forthcoming "Green Lantern: Emerald Knights," and "Blast From The Past," the "Superman: TAS" two-parter about Kryptonian fascists who fight Superman after leaving the Phantom Zone.

A great effort that more than makes up for "Superman: Doomsday," which, like the live-action "Superman Returns," doesn't work no matter how many times I watch it.
