Fueled by hatred and jealousy, Lex Luthor masterminds an elaborate plot to kill the Man of Steel – and it works. Poisoned by solar radiation, Superman is dying. With weeks to live, he fulfills his life’s dreams – especially revealing his true identity to Lois Lane – until Luthor proclaims his ultimate plan to control the world with no alien hero to stop him. Powers fading, Superman engages in a spectacular deadly battle with Luthor that could truly trigger the end of Earth’s Greatest Protector. This startling and gripping DC Universe Animated Original Movie stars the voice talents of James Denton, Anthony LaPaglia, Christina Hendricks and Ed Asner.

Lex Luthor (Anthony Lapaglia) had made a plan to poison Superman (James Denton) with solar radiation as the man-of-steel is dying. He has weeks to live as he must fulfill everything he's always dreamed of including revealing his secret identity to Lois (Christina Hendricks) and must do everything he can to live his life through the weeks of dying for he also must do battle against his old foes besides Lex like Parasite (Michel Gough, Atlas (Steve Blum) and even Samson (John Dimaggio).

Nicely done adaptation of Grant Morrison's graphic novel is an emotional and exciting Superman animated adventure and one of the better DC animated movies. The designs are quite different on the characters as if they appeared to look more like Peter "Aeon Flux creator" Chung's designs and i also like how this was the first appearence of Superwoman to appear. The animation is very good and so is the music, there is plenty of great action here and a great ending.

This Blu-Ray offers crystal picture and sound quality with terrific extras like featurettes, commentary, all-star Superman digital comic, sneek preview of "Green Lantern Emerald Knights" and two bonus Superman episodes.

I didn't have the same emotional connection some wrote about, but felt this was very well done considering the increasingly annoying run-time limitations the WB imposes. The primary reason I didn't connect is that movies worth watching need more time to develop (especially one that attempt serious subject matter). Big reveals are meaningless when there's no time to let them sink in, and react naturally. How can you seriously appreciate anything with rushed progression?

That being said I think this is one of the very best DCAU movies to date. I didn't think I'd like the look of this movie (felt the preview art was soft, etc), but quickly took to it and the voice acting was excellent (including the first Lois Lane I liked that wasn't Dana Delany). Overall, in good company with Under the Red Hood, BB Return of Joker, JL Doom, and Wonder Woman.

I would have loved to see how Dwayne McDuffie could handle the subject with more time, but considering WB seems to find little merit in the storytelling benefits of longer DCAU features, this will be a about as good as they get. Recommended.

I never read the comic series of All-Star Superman so I didn't no anything about it except what I saw in the trailers. I saw Public Enemies and Apocalypse, the Superman/Batman team-ups, they were very good. The mood and the action in the story were driven by emotion and that was something I've never seen in a superhero story before, it was true to the character of who Superman is in my mind. It's heart felt, its funny, it has action and romance, its one of the best works from Dewayne McDuffie who recently deceased. The best Superman story I have ever seen a must for your collection.

If you ever wondered how Superman could possibly die? If he did die, what would happen to his essence? Is it possible for Superman to have children? Would Lex Luthor ever use his intellect for the good of humanity? Who would write Superman's obituary for the Daily Planet? Would the meek and mild reporter named Clark Kent perform a heroic act?

All Star Superman answers those questions and many more. It is a love story. It's a hero story with some nasty villains besides Alexander Joseph Luthor.

The main story takes place on Lois Lane's birthday where Superman whisks her off to the Fortress of Solitude. There she discovers more about Superman and Clark Kent.

The Fortress is a museum, workshop, laboratory and most of all a homage to an ancient planet known as Krypton. This hermitage is where Superman pursues his various interests and vocations. Except for his robot helpers it is a lonely, isolated place.

Perhaps this is the core of the film--Superman's unique loneliness and isolation. Growing up in Smallville he had his earth parents and special friends like Lana and Pete. In Metropolis he had Jimmy and Lois, but all in all Superman's existence was a lonely plight of a strange visitor from another world untouched by humanity's mortality.

The various battles, the inspiring music and the sad overtones of a demi-god facing his end are wrapped into a neat package. The poignant conversation between Superman and Lois about their genetic incompatibility is touching.

The conversation between Clark and Lex as they fight for survival in a prison riot reveals how Lex feels about Clark and how Clark feels about Lex. Lex and Superman could have been great friends.

There are many elements in this film as well as many characters.

Just finished watching, along with Jeff H., "All Star Superman" released by Warner Brothers.
"WOW, these DC animated movies would do really great in a movie theater," Jeff said as "All Star Superman" closed on a hopeful note.
"I agree, but it all probably comes down to the profit margin line. It's easier to recoup an investment in a direct-to-DVD release as opposed to what you'd have to spend promoting a movie in theaters," I replied.
And it's rather a pity that the DC animated movies are not at least given a limited release run in theaters. To date, Warner Brothers has done such a good job making these movies - many of which are far superior to the current crop of live action ones.
"All Star Superman" is a faithful adaptation of the comic book series, which was later released as a graphic novel.
During a rescue mission of manned orbital mission of the Sun, Superman is poisoned by an overdose of solar radiation which is slowly killing him. Lex Luthor put the mission in peril in order to achieve his life's goal of being the one who killed Superman.
Given the news that he has only a few weeks, if that to live, Superman decides to fulfill a few dreams of his own - revealing Clark Kent as Superman to Lois Lane, finding a home for the Bottled City of Kandor, and giving Lex Luthor an opportunity to redeem himself.
What makes "All Star Superman" a special part of the Superman lore of the multiverse is that it rings true to what makes the character of Superman so unique, even as he's facing his own demise. He only looks back once with regret before saving the world one last time. It would be interesting to see a live action version of this animated movie.
Strongly Recommended!
Five Stars!
