1.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly Poor, June 24, 2012
This review is from: Superman vs The Elite [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
While most here have criticized the animation but applauded the storyline, I feel one goes hand-in-hand with the other. This isn't like an entire series where a show can have a couple of bad "filler" episodes but still be deemed overall brilliant. DC had one shot to get the right and failed miserably. The look and quality of the animation, not to mention the Peter Griffin appearance of Supes, doomed this stinker. This direct-to-dvd movie has the cheapest quality animation yet. I'm shocked at Dc and hope they don't use that Korean animation studio again for any future titles. Some backgrounds are nicely composed/drawn -like the exterior of the Kent's Smallville farm house- but in some scenes the haven't even fleshed out the character faces (as they do in comics when the viewer/reader is "really far away"); there is no need for that here. Some of the faces were literally two dots for eyes and a line for a mouth -- all while delivering dialog!

I will say that Manchester black had some nifty dialogue (probably lifted from the comic) and Pauley Perrette made for a spunky Lois - even if she had not much to do but fret over Clark/Superman.

Overall, I put this at the bottom of my DC Warner Premier pile. Yes, even under Emerald Knights.

Two Thumbs Down.

thanks for the heads up. I usually get almost everything that comes out like this but after your review and a few other ones, think I'll overpay for it on redbox in a few weeks. emerald knights was horrible. it went out to a trade site about 10 mins after I finished watching it
