When i learnt that there was going to be another Supes/bats animation again,i thought Dc wasnt going to pull it off. why? from what i saw of the trailer,the artwork had changed form the usual batman anmimated series 70's look to a more concentrated look to it.But i was wrong.The story really delivers.Unlike almost every Dc animation that i have seen,Public enemies is really Packed with great battles (loved the face off between superman and shazam)with almost every villain and hero you can think of in the DC universe.
Get this.you wont regret it.
*keep an eyeout for Bane he makes a brief appearance!

I'm a big, big fan of Warner Brothers superhero animation but this particular outing just wasn't good enough. Compared to the dizzy heights of Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League/Justice League Unlimited and the more recent DTV (direct to 'video') Superman: Doomsday, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern: First Flight titles, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies is pretty poor.

One of the reasons I didn't personally like it was the adherence to the art style of original comic book series artist, Ed McGuinness' art style - Power Girl looked odd and Superman, in profile, look like Archie from the Archie comics!

While the basic plot was strong, there weren't enough superpowered characters in it for my liking. The bumping off of XXXXX was well handled but the ending where XXXX survives a nuclear explosion almost had me reaching for the off button on my DVD remote, however. Not enough scope here, I'd say.

I ordered my copy of Superman/Batman: Public Enemies through Amazon UK and being a Region 2 (UK & Europe) DVD, the extras on this Amazon-only exclusive were underwhelming. Anyone who has most of these WB/DC animated features will have seen the likes of teasers for Green Lantern: First Flight, Wonder Woman and Superman/Doomsday repeated over a dozen discs already. The feature on the DC Comics Blackest Night comic books crossover series is already past its sell by date and should be removed from future presentations. There are no new DC Universe animated shorts here highlighting someone like the Spectre or Jonah Hex, either (maybe I should upgrade to Bluray. And a HD ready TV. Yeah, spending three or four hundred pounds just to watch a bunch of indifferent WB superhero films is a great idea!

first of all, wow!! this was not what i expected at all. i thought this would be a cheap attempt cartoon, but was i suprised, it was superb! better then watching a live action movie! the story is amazing, the animation top notch, the voice cast just legends! as you superman batman fans will find out if you buy it. In this animation batman and superman team up, (superman my personal favourite) and its just amazing from start to finish, i highly reccomend you buy this, for the price too its a bargain!

After waiting months to find a copy I found it was well worth the wait. The story was amazing and kept me gripped the whole way through, this truly is DC at its best and may well be my new personal favourite Superman movie. I look forward to buying the sequel!

This is an action packed super brawl for all. This follows the event of the Batman Superman comics' issues 1-6, with minor changes; I can live with, to adapt it into a movie.

The story is Lex Luther had become president of the USA. He has pulled them into an almost renaissance they are out of debt, standard of living is better; crime is at an all-time low. Even most of the Super/Meta-humans have thrown in with him. With the exception of Superman and Batman (also in the comics the rest of the Justice League have refuses his invitations). Luther "tries" to reach out to Superman, bowing under pressure to ask for Superman's help for an emergency. A meteor heading for Earth. The catch is the Meteorite is made out of Kryptonite and is the size of a continent.

Superman is then framed for attacking the president and murder, he and Batman must find a way to clear Superman's name and figure out a way to stop the Meteorite all the while Luther still another secret. Even though I have not mentioned him much in this review but Batman does more then hold his own in the movie. He proves yet again why he is the most important member of the Justice League if not in DC in general.

Great movie stays true to the source material, good animation, (they might need to tone it down on Power-girl though, I do not blame Toyman one bit, you will see what I mean) , lots of action (good old comic book violence), even a creditable plot. I would not have minded if the film was a little longer but I am just being greedy. Once again great movie well worth the money.

I quite enjoyed this animated movie. Okay storyline, good action and the animation was good in my opinion. Loads of other super characters are in it, some i'd never seen before so was interesting seeing what they could do!I would recommend it and my lad (13) will love it! Good stuff indeed.

Adapted from the Public Enemies comic, this animated film has Superman and Batman team up to generally beat the hell out of anyone who stands against them, with well animated fight scenes and the witty dialogue from the comic that is excellently delivered by veteran Batman and Superman voice actors Kevin Conroy and Tim Daly.

It only misses out on top marks because it takes liberties with the original comic story and doesn't feature cameos by the sidekick teams of Superman and Batman, but it is still a worthy purchase for fans of the Superman and Batman animated series and comic books.
