Editorial Reviews

When the Joker elicits the help of Lex Luthor in a new fiendish scheme, only the combined superpowers of Batman and Superman can save Metropolis. Will the Man of Steel and the Caped Crusader be able to foil the plot of this diabolical duo? Not if the superheroes' alter egos clash as they vie for the attention of the self-reliant Lois. Watch the action explode as Batman and Superman clash with each other and their notorious archenemies.

This will be included on the Superman Volume 2 set from the Animated Series. So don't waste your money unless you want the special features.

5.0 out of 5 stars World's VERY Finest May 7, 2002
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the work of Paul Dini and Bruce Timm in their quest to bring the greatest adventures of Batman and Superman to the small screen in a throwback animation style, and I was overwhelmed with joy upon seeing THE BATMAN SUPERMAN MOVIE released on DVD.
Not only do you get the world's greatest detective with Batman but also you're treated to the world's greatest superhero (Supes) in a tale that combines their arch rivals, Lex Luthor and the Joker, in a tale linking Gotham to Metropolis. In short, a money-hungry joker offers his services to murder Superman to Lex Luthor for nothing short of one billion dollars. However, complications arise when Lois Lane falls head over heels for ... Bruce Wayne?
Kid-friendly in its cartoon violence, THE BATMAN SUPERMAN MOVIE is a must-see for family entertainment.
What always worked about these animated series was the fact that the characters were always starkly portrayed in vocal direction yet simply drawn in fundamental lines. The circa 1940s artwork to the buildings and cityscapes only further enhanced the viewing pleasure.
The transfer is crisp and beautiful, and the colors are as vibrant as ever. The soundtrack is only 2 channel, but it works well for the presentation.
The disc includes an introduction by Bruce Timm, a DVD game linked to watching the movie, as well as how-to exercises in teaching anyone who likes how to draw the animated versions of Batman and Superman.
This is truly one of the world's finest!

3.0 out of 5 stars No Love Lost at First Meeting September 1, 2002
Worthwhile use of the "World's Finest" title for this first animated meeting between the Bat and the Big Blue Cheese. (For many years, the comic titled "World's Finest"'s lead story every month was a Batman/Superman team-up, in an era when hero's team-ups were not common)
Batman and Superman's first meeting, herein portrayed, is rather nice, especially because they really just don't like each other a heck of a lot. Especially because Lois Lane falls hard for Bruce Wayne.
Their mutual discovery of secret identities plays nicely on the two characters' strong points, with Superman using his superpowers and Batman demonstrating why he's the world's greatest detective.
Harley Quinn's running feud with Luthor's female bodyguard/chauffeur, Mercy, is one of the high points.
The Joker's "Dance of Death" over the fallen Superman, adding shocks from his super-charged handbuzzer to Big Blue's suffering in his kryptonite death trap is rather chilling; in this and a few elements of violence this production (originally aired in prime-time, and then as three episodes of the television series) goes a bit beyond what the afternoon TV series can usually portray, and the Mark Hamill-voiced Joker is truly scary. The Joker's raving laughter as he (apparently) goes to his death as a result of one of his own traps gone wrong is both chilling and in character. (Harley Quinn, on the other hand, is just a *bit* too broadly portrayed.)
(There is, by the way a comicbook/"graphic novel" adaptation of this material -- now sadly out of print. While it doesn't bring much new, it's a good counterpoint to this film, as it gives alternate, slightly more "adult" views on some things -- if you have one, you really need the other.)
One question -- does Lois Lane have a trust fund or something?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Mini-Series July 6, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
WORLD'S FINEST originally aired on the Batman Superman Adventures as a three-part miniseries. As always expected, Bruce Timm and Paul Dini deliver first-rate production and screenwriting for this movie. Kevin Conroy once again delivers a superlative performance as the Dark Knight. The antagonism and reluctant team up of Batman and Superman is very credible and true to each superhero's character. My favorite events must be the way each superhero uncovers the other's identity, along with the animosity over Lois Lane's affections.
While great, this storyline is perhaps not as riveting as some of the other Animated features, yet it is great to see The Last Son of Krypton and the Dark Detective battle the Prince of Knaves and The Very Rich Bald Guy. Some of the best scenes include Batman's awesome gadgetry (On flight: "When in Rome...") and the battle with the robots. A great comic scene is watching Joker and Lex negotiate as Mercy and Harley Quinn duke it out in the background.
On the whole, I must say this is a great film for every fan of Batman and Superman, and for all lovers of first-rate animation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frighteningly Real May 5, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This may be an animated movie, but it is excellent in every sense of the word. In this tape we see that Batman and Superman are selfless heroes, but they are not without human weaknesses. Despite their benevolent characters, their egos make it difficult to work with each other at times. As someone who cherishes the writings of Charles Dickens, I have noticed that Dickens is usually careful not to make his heroes perfect. (Usually they have at least some human flaws.) The Joker and Harley Quinn STEAL this movie. Whatever people may have thought of the Joker up to this point, NO ONE is likely to underestimate him now. First he quickly hammers down the local thugs and lets them know it's either their loyalty or else. He finds the weaknesses of his opponents, takes advantage of the dissension between Batman and Superman, and fights them both quite well. Despite their crimes the Joker and Harley are a real lovable couple. They function as a team, they stand by each other, and it is clear that their relationship is a happy one. Lex seems little more than the Joker's stooge in this movie. The Joker manipulates him to get a shot at Superman; later the Joker's fight starts to spell trouble for Lex; Lex makes the fatal error of thinking he can outsmart the Joker and Harley; all too late, Lex realizes that PSYCHOTIC DOES NOT EQUAL STUPID!!! I never forgot the chills I felt when the Joker and Harley Quinn flipped the tables on the naive Lex. It is in this movie that we can see why the Joker and Harley Quinn are Batman's most dangerous enemies. The minds of most criminals follow a pattern and they hope to gain something. Usually they will not bother with criminal activity that digresses from their goal. The Joker and Harley Quinn DO NOT follow this pattern. Read more ›
