Superman Doomsday (BD)

The most shocking showdown in Superman history! When Lexcorp accidentally unearths the intergalactic serial killer Doomsday, Superman battles the creature head on in the fight of his life...literally. The world collectively mourns their fallen hero; humanity realizes it will never feel truly safe again. Superman's enemies rejoice all but Lex Luthor, who grieves the loss in his own demented manner, setting off a chilling chain of events that even he couldn't have foreseen. Inspired by the bestselling graphic novel of all time, DC Comics' The Death of Superman, this feature-length animated adventure boasts exciting action sequences that rivals anything you've ever seen starring the Man of Steel!

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.

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.

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
I'm not a huge Superman fan by any means, but I loved the Superman Animated series and was looking forward to the Superman: Doomsday movie, even though I knew it technically wasn't part of the same continuity.

I know a lot of people seem to hate the fact that this movie is not a panel-by-panel adaptation of the Death and Return of Superman comics, but that may be for the best. The Return of Superman storyline got a bit convoluted, and this adaptation does a great job of streamlining things for casual fans. The return of "Superman" was presented quite differently, and I think this was an improvement over the original stories.

The highlight of the movie was the fighting. The Superman/Doomsday battle was flat out epic, and was choreographed brilliantly. It was highly reminiscent of Japanese anime fighting, and the devastation was incredible. The Superman/Superman battle was almost as impressive, but "bad" Superman lacked Doomsday's menace. The only wonder is how there were any buildings in Metropolis left standing. I also loved the fact that Lex Luthor and the Toyman were far more sinister than before. The Toyman in particular was downright creepy.

The absence of other superheroes both during the fight and at the funeral was decidedly unusual, especially given the sheer volume of DCU characters that rotate in and out of the Justice League series, but then again, none of the live action Superman movies had any guest stars (Richard Pryor doesn't count).

I should also mention the fact that this is rated PG-13. The fighting is intense, there's a fair amount of blood spilling and neck snapping, and there's some scattered profanity as well. I'd recommend parents watch it before exposing it to kids.

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
