I've been a fan of most of the Superman animated movies previously released. I liked All-Star Superman and the Batman team-ups, Apocalypse & Public Enemies. I especially liked Superman vs the Elite and the Captain Marvel short. Even the Justice League movies portrayed Superman in an enjoyable manner. Superman Unbound, however, didn't really impress. It's a movie I enjoyed enough once through, but will not likely watch again any time soon.

Based on the comic book story appearing in Action Comics #866-870 by Geoff Johns & Gary Frank, this movie tells the tale of Brainiac and the bottle city of Kandor. We learn little about Brainiac's background. His motivation is simply the acquisition of knowledge, which is a sensible goal for a man who is essentially a walking computer. The strength of the film is how Brainiac's mission intersects with Supergirl's back story, which in turn impacts and motivates Superman.

There is solid character development between Superman & Supergirl. It really is a movie about both characters, so the title is a little misrepresentation. I might even say Supergirl really is the star of this movie. She is the one who is connected to Brainiac, Kandor, and Kryptonians in general.

On the subject of the title, I'm not even sure how Superman is "unbound." When I think of the word "unbound" I think of the ending of Superman vs the Elite, which is epic. Never in the story is he really bound by anything.

There are some good action sequences in the movie, though the battles at different points in the story seem unbalanced. First, Brainiac whoops Superman. Then Superman whoops Brainiac. It's a complete 180. It's not until the final battle that any logic is applied to why one would be victorious over the other.

As usual, while Time Warner seems unable to make a great superhero movie that doesn't involve Batman (although Man of Steel looks to be a game changer), DC Animated never fails the audience. Superman Unbound is another unparallelled success, with Superman dealing with his relationship with Lois, his relationship with Kara and a new and implacable enemy - Brainiac. A brilliant adaptation (warning Fanboys - it's not a literal adaptation there are some changes) of the comic by Geoff Johns and Gary Franks (the Curt Swan of this era), it is quite satisfying. Best voice: John Noble "Fringe" as Brainiac. Don't delay - if you're a Superman fan - get this today!

For the past eight years, Batman received all the love at the movies when it comes to DC Comics' characters. That's all about to change on June 14 when "Man of Steel" hits theaters. DC and Warner Premiere aren't going to settle for TV commercials and trailers to get people pumped up. Two new comic books and a DC Universe Animated Original Movie entitled "Superman Unbound" are keeping the super hero fresh on everyone's minds as well.

"Superman Unbound" serves as a tasty appetizer for the main meal coming up. The Man of Steel joins forces with his cousin, Supergirl, to battle Brainiac after the super villain shrinks down Metropolis and adds it to his collection of cities from different planets he's destroyed. Superman must find a way to keep Braniac from destroying the Earth and save all the captured cities of the universe, including Krypton's capitol Kandor.

As is usual with the DC animated movies, "Superman Unbound" is loaded with action from the beginning to the end. Director James Tucker and writer Bob Goodman know how to keep the pace moving at a breakneck speed and demand the audience's attention. You take a 128 page graphic novel and shove it into a 75 minute film. There's no time for the viewer to get distracted or for the movie to lose steam.

The animation for "Superman Unbound" differs from what we've come to expect from the DC animated features. It varies in style greatly from "Superman vs. The Elite." One example is the Man of Steel's facial features. The other characters look different as well.

"Superman Unbound" is definitely a PG-13 movie. There are scenes of Braniac changing himself into a cyborg that would freak out little kids. His robots drill into the heads of their victims, which splashes a lot of blood around onscreen.

I like it alright and what's not to like? It's a rhetorical question! The animation took a while to get used to: Lois Lane and Kara Zor-el have the too big "deer-in-the-headlights" thing that so many Asian-influenced cartoons do which is no big deal but was the deal breaker for five stars. Otherwise, it was a ripping yarn with top-notch acting by Matt Bomer, et al and I'll be sure to eagerly await subsequent offerings by DC Comics/Warner Bros. Animation.

This might be my new favorite DC animated film. It's an excellent science fiction story centering on Superman, Supergirl and Brainiac. As is often the case, the title 'Superman: Unbound' and the cover art fail miserably to hint at the charms of the film itself, leaving the viewer to furnish the benefit of the doubt. There have been several subpar-to-bad films in this series, but this is one of the very best, so I'd highly recommend giving it a chance.

As far as specifics go, again the story is really good, well written and full of emotion and suspense. The character designs are simply beautiful--I can't emphasize that enough; this has many of the best looking frames that I've seen in a DC film--and the animation in general is very good. This also features one of my favorite depictions of Lois Lane. I enjoy the mythology of Krypton and prefer these types of stories (i.e. just focusing on Superman and his related characters) to the big Justice League ensemble pieces. Not only is Unbound a bit more unified and self-contained in terms of plot, but it's really good, period.
