My niece on the other hand loved it. She's in her pre-pre-teen years and while she loves animation (she still calls them cartoons) what she really likes are stories with strong female leads. She likes it when girls are the heroes. I think that's why she loved this movie.
You have a few cute scenes with Super Girl (Kara Zor-El) palling around with Clark Kent when she first arrives on Earth. You have some great fight scenes involving Super Girl, Wonder Woman, Big Barda, the Female Furies and an entire nation of Amazon Warriors. This movie showcases tough, capable women warriors as well as a strong, tough-minded teenage girl. My niece ate it up. She can't wait for more like this. She is even getting into the comic books. Seeing "girl superheroes" on an even footing with "boy superheroes" made a big impression on her. I hope the studios produce more like this one. So does my niece.
Kara comes to earth and is lost when Batman finds her. Superman and Batman both argue over what to do with her while Wonder Woman enters the fray and takes her to train with her on Themescyra. Meantime, Darkseid has been monitoring the events and decides to make Kara one of his new lieutenants!
What comes is an all out battle over the fate of Kara. Will she become one of earth's newest saviors or one of their biggest threats?
Also included is 4 episodes from the 90's Superman series that centers around Darkseid (Apokolips....Now! pts. 1 and 2) and Supergirl (in her own two parter). You also get a 10 minute short featuring Green Arrow and some behind the scenes extras mainly discussing Darkseid and the mythology behind him, Mr. Miracle, Orion and New Genesis. All created by the late, great Jack Kirby!
Overall, a good use of $20 if you have that to spend!
(voiced by Susan Eisenberg) and the being that menaced the DC Universe beyond Lex Luthor... Darkseid. As many
disagreements that Superman and Batman have had in roughly 70+ years, they actually are more alike than not so.
Granny Goodness, played by Edward Asner.... great choice. The `Apocalypse' incarnation of Darkseid is more reserved,
patient and yet... devious (as only the great Jack Kirby could develop). The most brutal battle between Superman
and Darkseid other than `Twilight' from Justice League and `Destroyer' from Justice League Unlimited. Intense and
loaded with action.
The retelling of the Supergirl saga, updates that particular chapter in Superman history, placing Darkseid into the mix just makes for more cohesive storytelling. The extras, are right on and DC pulls no punches in offering it's audience, a total package of classic animation
Thank you DCU for releasing this direct to DVD release
This movie is the second half of the same comic series "Public Enemies" is from. It deals mostly with the story of Supergirl, and very little to do with Apocalypse. That said, it's still an entertaining story; though I was more entertained by the Green Arrow short. Wonder Woman and Batman also make brief appearances. Special Features includes 4 cartoons featuring Darkseid, the story of Supergirl, and other featurettes including one about why Darkseid is so badass. Overall it's a pretty good buy.
I ordered this on Friday night. Saturday morning I was at a local retail store and saw this on sale for $10. I bought it from the store and tried to cancel my order on Amazon. Not yet shipped, it hasn't even been a full day since I ordered, yet Amazon said I couldn't cancel... My order came today, and I was thinking of returning it. But since Christmas is only 2 months away, I'll give the Amazon copy to my cousin. If another store is charging $10, then Amazon is overcharging at $20.
