World's VERY Finest,
This review is from: The Batman Superman Movie (DVD)I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the work of Paul Dini and Bruce Timm in their quest to bring the greatest adventures of Batman and Superman to the small screen in a throwback animation style, and I was overwhelmed with joy upon seeing THE BATMAN SUPERMAN MOVIE released on DVD.
Not only do you get the world's greatest detective with Batman but also you're treated to the world's greatest superhero (Supes) in a tale that combines their arch rivals, Lex Luthor and the Joker, in a tale linking Gotham to Metropolis. In short, a money-hungry joker offers his services to murder Superman to Lex Luthor for nothing short of one billion dollars. However, complications arise when Lois Lane falls head over heels for ... Bruce Wayne?
Kid-friendly in its cartoon violence, THE BATMAN SUPERMAN MOVIE is a must-see for family entertainment.
What always worked about these animated series was the fact that the characters were always starkly portrayed in vocal direction yet simply drawn in fundamental lines. The circa 1940s artwork to the buildings and cityscapes only further enhanced the viewing pleasure.
The transfer is crisp and beautiful, and the colors are as vibrant as ever. The soundtrack is only 2 channel, but it works well for the presentation.
The disc includes an introduction by Bruce Timm, a DVD game linked to watching the movie, as well as how-to exercises in teaching anyone who likes how to draw the animated versions of Batman and Superman.
This is truly one of the world's finest!
