Well, I was wrong. This film captures the spirit of the epic comic while still crunching it down into an 80 minute story that I just wish was longer. I haven't loved a DC animated film this much since Batman: Under the Red Hood. And it stands among the upper echelons of the animated films that chose to focus more on character than action and greatly benefited from it.
While not a straight retelling from the comic or the Roger Stern novel, it touches upon the points that needed to be made to set up for the second half the tale, Reign of the Supermen, and captured the spirit of the story by revolving around Clark the man and Lois. I actually liked how the incorporated the newer Justice League elements from recent films even though I haven't loved most of the newer Justice League movies. Their characters only served to enhance the story here.
I intend to buy this on the day of its release and encourage any fan of DC/Superman/superheroes to do the same and send the message back to WB/DC animation that these are the kinds of stories we want to support--stories with heart and soul.
The voice work is superb and the animation is clean on Blu-ray. The new 52 costumes are dated now (see comics), but the continuity between all of the past titles is really good. I truly loved the emotion of the characters, the humor, and the flat out action of the biggest brawl since Tyson- Holyfield. Best action of any DC animation movie. There are no pretend deaths for civilians. Civilians are collateral damage and it is shown in the movie, as DOOMSDAY destroys any person in its way (cape or not). The city is drawn with people and is alive, unlike the Teen Titans Vs. Justice League movie where Trigon smashes an empty city with no victims. Wheew!! I have to watch this again to take it all in. 70 minutes flies by. This movie's version of Doomsday is 10x better than the Superman vs Batman movie version. This DOOMSDAY
