4.0 out of 5 stars When a Superman dies... September 9, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first in a line of straight to DVD animated features adapted from classic DC stories, Superman: Doomsday re-tells the much maligned Death of Superman saga from the early 90's in animated form, and despite what many of the negative reviews here say otherwise, it works. The Man of Steel (voiced by Serenity's Adam Baldwin) is in love with Lois Lane (voiced quite stiffly by Anne Heche) and both are enjoying their relationship, until his world is rocked by the arrival of the murderous creature Doomsday, who is inadvertantly let loose by Lex Luthor (Buffy the Vampire Slayer's James "Spike" Marsters). If you've read the comics, you know what happens next, but the animated feature wisely ignores the Reign of the Supermen part of the arc, in place of an imposter created by Luthor, which results in an apocalyptic showdown. Being the first in a line of newly animated features, don't go into this expecting something among the lines of the DC animated series' that had come before it. The animation itself looks similar to what we've seen before (veteran animator Bruce Timm is heavily involved here), but the tone is noticibly different. The voice acting is solid (Marsters is magnificent as Luthor, while Baldwin is servicable as Superman) and the action is nicely orchestrated as well, all of which makes Superman: Doomsday an animated treat. This new two-disc edition has a few new features, including episodes from the underrated 90's Superman animated series, but there isn't anything else here that really warrants getting double-dipped for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could have been great October 23, 2007
Format:DVD
There's good stuff to recommend in this DVD, but there are some awfully big caveats I feel one should know before buying:

1.) Straight-to-video titles rarely have the production values of theatrical animated releases, so know going in that the animation is no great shakes - a notch above the latest Superman and Justice League shows on Kids WB!, but not a huge step up by any means. There are some inspired moments of animation, but they are few and far between.

2.) Don't be taken in by the "PG-13" rating. I suppose slapping "PG-13" on it works to WB/DC's advantage, suggesting the movie is a "hard" Superman story that attracts the fanboys. But while it does contain some language, violence and themes that you'd never see on the Animated Series on TV, in relation to what you see in theatrical films, this is squarely "PG" all the way.

3.) There is no way they could cram in everything from the Death/Rebirth of Superman storylines into a 90-minute film. I doubt they could effectively squeeze it all into a 3-hour film. So there's no Justice League getting whupped by Doomsday, no Supergirl or "heroic" Lex Luthor II, no Steel or Superboy, no Cyborg and Mongul colluding to destroy Coast City. No Kryptonian War-Suit.

If you go in with all that in mind, the film isn't so bad. IMHO, they did a good job of condensing the essentials of the storyline into a single digestible story. Those who strive for continuity with the comic books need not apply.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not what I remember... September 20, 2007
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I read the book/graphic novel over ten years ago, if I remember. This isn't much like that at all. Superman fights something called Doomsday and dies, then comes back to life. That's about all that remains of the original story.
Gone are the side stories about Superboy and Steel, which were very cool IMHO. Gone also is the interesting story about how Superman came back to life. The mechanics behind how he does so in this DVD are completely different, from what I recall.
Not bad for a fun hour's watching, but don't expect this to be like the original story.
I wish they'd have made the movie of it like they'd planned :(

Format:DVD
If you have read the whole DEATH OF SUPERMAN, WORLD WITHOUT SUPERMAN, and RETURN OF SUPERMAN you will be greatly DISSAPOINTED. This version leaves out the JUSTICE LEAGUE,SUPERGIRL, SUPERBOY, STEEL, ERADICATOR and such. The story line has the basics Doomsday gets free, Doomsday and Superman "die" and Superman returns to fight one of the Supermen. Other then that this movie is horrible, bad annimation, forced present day culture references, and oh so many other things. If your a true comic book fan, don't bother wasting your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superman: Doomsday review August 5, 2007
Format:DVD
Phenomenal.

I can't even express how impressed i was with this movie.

Is it the comic? not really. does that matter? hell no. this movie is based on "The Death of Superman," yes, but they never said it would be exactly the same. did they follow the basic premise and capture the essence of the story? hell yes, they did. and they translated all the most important parts of the story while still making it their own.

denying the pure quality of the movie itself is just a practice in bad taste. keep in mind that most of the people who will bash this movie for not being an exact adaptation of the three graphic novels it pulls inspiration from are probably the same people who own all box-sets of S:TAS and consider them to be bar-setting quality in Superhero television. was S:TAS exactly like the comics? hell no. in fact, to compare them on those grounds is just rediculous... they're about as different as they can possibly be, without S:TAS destroying the superman comic mythos. the key is that they kept the important parts the same, and delivered high quality writing, animation, etc. while still being allowed to add their own flavor to the stories.

the route they took with this movie was, i think, perfect for what they were aiming to do. they wanted to bring the classic story to the screen without bogging it down with all of the unnecessary plot tangents that drag the focus off of Superman himself. because that's what's important. Superman's death is what sold those comics, not the inclusion of the JLA. and then, subsequently, Superman's return from death after much mourning is done by the Man of Steel's loved (and not so loved) ones.

Good show. My son really liked it. He will want to see it again. I might need to buy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed!
Watched part of this which was included in my prime membership. When I returned the next day to finish watching, Amazon listed it as a 2.99 rental. Not cool.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag of doom...
The movie was only fractionally about the doomsday saga and more about his inevitable return...not what I expected...animation was solid and acting was decent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great
This is one of the best best animated Superman movies I have seen. Finally something that can kick Superman's rear end outside the pages of a comic book and it isn't kryptonite.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like it for children under 14 or adults who like cartoons
This could be a good movie for a young person, some violence but not anything worse than currently on TV. Won't recommend for adult unless you like cartoons.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cool story, but rushed...
Would have been better if it was a full 2 hours, tough for an animated film I know, but it seemed a little rushed. There's a ton of material to cram into an hour and a half. Read more

Spanish Subs or Dubs?
Regarding this particular Superman movie, it is quite probable Warner Brothers did include a Spanish subtitled format on it. They have done so for almost each and every DVD release animated or live action.
Personally I have grown to hate Spanish dubs for many reasons:

Christopher W. Cooper said "Adults who like this crap need to grow up."

Wow, that's the most childish thing I've read on here, well done sir. It seems to me that you're the one who needs to grow up, douchebag. Glad you took the time to come on a SUPERMAN message board and post that.... Read more
