Product Description

Superman: Brainiac Attacks (DVD)

Amazon.com

The direct-to-DVD animated feature Superman: Brainiac Attacks pits Superman against two of his longest-running foes: Lex Luthor and the robotic Brainiac. Luthor's scheme is to re-jigger Brainiac's configuration using a combination of Superman's DNA and a rare form of Kryptonite to make him an unstoppable weapon against the Man of Steel. Fans of TV's Superman: The Animated Series will be pleased to note the return of Tim Daly and Dana Delany, who reprise their roles as Superman and Lois Lane from the show, but hardcore Superman/Justice League Unlimited viewers may regret the loss of Clancy Brown's formidable performance as Luthor (who is voiced here by Powers Boothe), as well as Corey Burton as Brainiac (here handled by Lance Henriksen). Also missing is the series' adherence to its DC Comics origins and its serious tone, which here is blunted by Duane (The Batman, Jackie Chan Adventures) Capizzi's frothy script, which hews closer to a combination of the Superman films and broad comedy. --Paul Gaita

Customer Reviews

Is it really THAT bad?
Matt Zimmer
If you're thinking of buying this movie, do yourself a favor and buy "Justice League" or "Superman: the Animated Series" instead.
Richard Hadley
The animation is horrible, the storyline is flat and boring, and the dialogue is mind-numbing.
Carter Hall

You know who you are. You are the kind of person who is going to buy DVDs related to to Bruce Timm's DC Animated Universe to have a complete collection of everything DCAU. Here are some questions that completists who have not seen Superman: Brainiac Attacks yet may ask themselves when thinking about whether or not to buy this DVD.

If you are not a geek feel free to ignore this review.

Q: All the reviews say it's really bad, but internet critics are ALWAYS unnessecarily harsh. Is it really THAT bad?

A: Yes, it is. Static Shock's "Hoop Squad" has always been widely considered the single worst thing to come out of the DCAU ever. This is only marginally related to the DCAU and it is roughly twenty times worse. Sixty if you consider it's 22 minute running time one of "Hoop Squad"'s virtues. It is a pile of dried monkey vomit.

Q: But I want a complete DCAU collection!

A: The movie only uses character designs and some of the voices from the old Superman cartoon but it flatly contradicts things that have come before in the DCAU. Lex Luthor and Brainiac act INCREDIBLY out of character (buffoonish and melodramatic respectively) and the movie is at complete odds with how the Fortress of Solitude and Phantom Zone are portrayed on the old show.

Q: CAN it fit into the DCAU if I REALLY tried to make it?

A: I suppose you could come up with explainations for everything and wedge it into it if you really wanted to but it fits about as well as Teen Titans and Krypto the Superdog. Only those two cartoons are cool.

Unlike previous reviewers, I have actually gotten to see this mess, and let me just say that it is truly a disgrace to Superman: The Animated Series, and even writer Dwayne Capizzi's (of The Batman) other work.

When this was announced, and when the word came out that it would feature the original voice tallents for Superman and Lois (Tim Daly and Dana Delaney), fans of Superman and especially that wonderful and under-rated 90's cartoon show were estatic. Finally, this great version of Superman was getting his own animated movie!

Or so we thought.

As more details poured in, fans got more and more skeptical. Fan-favorite villains Lex Luthor and Braniac (Clancy Brown and Corey Burton) were recast. It was to be written by Dwayne Capizzi, of The Batman, an almost universally reviled anime-inspired version of the Dark Knight. What little pleasure that show ever had for me was in its kinetic animation, the writing was always atrocious and simplistic.

This is ten times worse. How this man can type out some of the lines in this movie is amazing. Lines like Lex Luthor saying "I'm happy! Oh, wait, no...I'm saaaaad!" or even telling Superman as he battles Brainiac "I'm rooting for you, my man!" is incredible. It's ten times more kiddie and stupid than any awful episode of The Batman.

The animation is rubbery and, for the most part, poor. Characters rarely look the same way in different scenes.

This DVD has been cropped to Fullscreen for some inexplicable reason since it was made in widescreen for a direct-to-video release.

I wont spoil details of the story for those who care, but suffice it to say that it makes the infamous movie "Batman and Robin" look absolutely brilliant.

Not to jump on the band-wagon here, but I would have to agree with the other reviewers. Had I purchased this instead of waiting for the "free view" on Cartoon Network I would be of all men, most miserable. I absolutely love Batman, Batman Beyond, Superman and Justice League and this production was a huge disappointment. The Luthor and Braniac voices were awful...the story was weak...buy the second season of Justice League instead.

I've got to agree with other reviewers on how bad this is.
It's so bad I feel compelled to write my first review just to warn people away!

Like so many others here, I enjoy "Batman: the Animated Series", "Superman: the Animated Series", and "Justice League" in all its incarnations, so it makes me very sad to say: There is just nothing to like about this movie.

The characters are very poorly written: Lex Luthor is portrayed as a clown (and not even a scary one!). Superman doesn't seem to have any idea how to fight an enemy other than fly at him and try to smash him.

The plot takes bizarre twists out of nowhere, such as a trip to the Phantom Zone, and a wholly unnecessary sub-plot featuring Jimmy Olson(!) in a fight with Luthor's leggy limo driver.

And don't start me on the voice work. While I respect Lance Henriksen, he just doesn't work for Brainiac. Brainiac sounds like he smokes cigarettes here, for crying out loud.

If you're thinking of buying this movie, do yourself a favor and buy "Justice League" or "Superman: the Animated Series" instead.
