I choose this rating because the movie is good. What I like about the movie is that “She will prove a treasure for your world.” (Superman Translating Kryptonian) A mysterious spaceship from Planet Krypton crashes on Earth with a beautiful girl inside, and everyone wants to meet the new kid. Superman embraces the connection to his past, Batman suspects a traitor, Wonder Woman senses a kindred spirit, and Darkseid desires a champion. But this feisty teen has her own ideas, none of which include a secret identity, a cape or heroics. It will take a life or death battle with Darkseid to uncover her true purpose on Earth. A dynamic voice cast Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly, Andre Braugher and Summer Glau highlights this DC Universe Animated Original Movie introducing the world to Supergirl! What I dislike about the movie is that I wanted to see more of it. I would recommend this movie to other people.

This does a reasonably good job at adapting this

Superman/Batman, Vol. 2: Supergirl

However, since the story is compressed in the movie, a lot of little details get left out that would have made the movie make more sense. The movie has two improvements over the comic: they at least give you SOME idea how Darkseid turned Kara over to his side, and the ending isn't as sloppy.

And hey! Summer Glau gets to be Supergirl! (And, uh, Ed Asner as Granny Goodness. Sounds strange, but it works.)
PG-13 for violence and kinky outfits

Blu-ray extras
-A short Green Arrow cartoon
-4 episodes from the Superman animated series- 2 with Supergirl and 2 with Darkseid- from which this story drew a number of elements
-Supergirl: the Last Daughter of Krypton- A 17 minute Supergirl documentary featuring Helen Slater, Laura Vandevoort, and many of the DC folks at those behind these animated films
-A clip about the New Gods
-Clips on Orion and Mr. Miracle (who, uh, aren't in this movie)
-Trailers for All-Star Superman, Batman: Under the Red Hood, Lego Universe. Jonah Hex motion comic, Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, and Superman/Batman: Public Enemies

And now for the bad news: as of 2011, none of this ever happened.

DC Comics comes out with another hit from their DC Original Animated Movie line.

As a sequel to "Superman/Batman: Public Enemies," this picks up not long after the events of that film. The World's Finest come together once again when a mysterious and powerful teenage girl arrives in Gotham City via a spaceship. After some miscommunications, it's eventually revealed that she is Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin. While Superman embraces the idea of finding some connection to Krypton, the Dark Knight remains cautious of Kara. Through the help of Superman and Wonder Woman, Kara integrates into Earth culture as well learning how to harness her newfound abilities. This catches the attention of Darkseid, ruler of Apokolips, who expresses interest in recruiting the young Kryptonian as part of his Female Furies. Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman must join together to prevent Darkseid from corrupting Kara for his own evil purposes.

Once again, DC hits a home run with this release. Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy once again provide the voices of the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight respectively. This also features the return of Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman and Ed Asner as Granny Goodness. The movie also features Summer Glau, who does an outstanding job portraying the strength and innocence of Supergirl rather than portraying her as a whiny teenager. Andre Braugher provides the voice of Darkseid. This casting decision was seen as debatable. I had no problem with him as Darkseid. He was no Michael Ironside, but he was certainly better than any other animated incarnation of the Lord of Apokolips.

One thing to note. The comic from which this movie is based on is "Supergirl of Krypton." I'm not sure why they chose the title "Apocalypse." But all in all, a great movie to come down the DC Animated Movie pike.

The Big Three (Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman) did a GREAT job of making this animated adventure realistic. The most dominant flaw is that the movie should have been darker as it pertains to Superman's character and and the dialogue sessions.

I compare all DC Animated Adventure to Under the Red Hood. This movie is Extremely Good but it does not Measure us to that emotionally gripping storyline.

As a stand alone, it is Fantastic!

this show rocks. it's one of the best Justice league movies I own. Technically it's Sup"s and the Bat's but it Rock's. I could give out a bunch of spoilers but that's not cool. If your a fan of the JL stories and DC hero's and villainous characters then this is a great movie.

A spaceship from Krypton crashes on Earth with a teenage girl in it and Superman takes her under his care. Batman however is very skeptical. Wonder Woman is "given custody" of her and takes her to Paradise Island/Femascara to train her in using her super powers. Soon after though Darkseid notices the young Supergirl(the one you think!) and wants her to join his armies. This particular teenager has plans of her own that do not include saving the world however. The battle that soon takes place is both heart wrenching and awesome! Darkseid has always been a top notch enemy in DC Comics with only Doomsday or Mongul coming close. Another one was Omega when Superboy was teaming with the Legion of Super Heroes. You get the idea. This is one HECK of a fight! I take that back.This is an all out WAR with levels of violence you are probably not accustomed to seeing in an animated movie unless you like Japanese anime. What is the true purpose of Supergirl? Only one way to find out!

I love this movie but I'm only giving it 3 stars because I live in a hearing-impaired household and the subtitles are out of sync. It's very distracting and yet another Amazin title with this same problem.

After reading some of the reviews I was a bit apprehensive about watching this. It's unfortunate that nowadays comic book related entertainment has to resort to blatant female nudity to help shore up sales. Don't get me wrong I support strong and sexy female leads but sometimes companies just flat out cross the line. In this particular film I think the producers did a reasonable job of balancing out the mature material when the storyline calls for it.

The film itself is very well done. I enjoyed the animation style and loved hearing some of the old voice actors from the Bruce Timm related animated series. The dialogue and interactions between the characters are great. I don't want to spoil too much but seeing Superman in the mall is hilarious. What stuck out to me was how well they portrayed Wonder Woman/ Big Barda/ Supergirl. I really enjoyed how they let the girls hang with the boys.

If you buy the Blu ray version you get a lot of nice extras. There are some nice short summaries of the Jack Kirby New Gods characters. There are also 4 Darkseid related episodes from the Superman amimated series. I really enjoyed the Green Arrow short film.

If anyone from DC is reading please consider making more films with characters other than Superman and Batman. Don't get me wrong I love those guys but please give the other guys (and gals) at least some more screen time. I know Time Warner needs to turn a profit on these products but at least consider making more animated shorts for the lesser known characters.

Sure enough that the dark knight and man of steel for would come back on the scene for an epic sequel. The fact that additional characters were to be brought into the big screen made it a creative feature to the story. and don't forget the fight sequences that had us wish that it could be brought into live action. Although, the title was misleading as the plot revolves around kara aka supergirl. i would have expected darkseid and the planet apokolips to have a more active role in the film, and what i mean is they invade earth around the beginning of the film, darkseid noticing kara as he makes his warning toward the human race, and returns to his home planet to plot a diversion when the heroes search for kara as she is abducted by darkseid and meanwhile the parademons are coming back to finish the job to enslave the human race. but above all, the main characters always keep the viewers entertained

It seems the DC animated universe continues to deliver in spite of the shortfalls from the live action universe. Tim Daly, Kevin Controy, Summer Gleason and Susan Eisenberg reprise their roles from their respective animated series and Justice League to voice their titular characters in this epic animated film. Not sure why the voice casting changed for Darkseid, but Andre Braugher does a good enough job. Staying relatively faithful to the comics, this is a really cool adventure that will take you on quite the ride.
