I guess if you're a long term reader of Superman you'll wonder how they manage to condense the events of the hige Doomsday arc into a 75 minute film. Well, they drop a lot but let me, without spoiling too much say that they keep the best aspects. They drop the "Four Supermen" replacements idea completely but that's understandable, there's just not enough time here to tell the extended story.

What story there is is tight, and it's self contained enough that someone with only a basic understanding of Superman will be OK to watch this without worrying about getting lost. The voice cast is strong and the animation is as you'd expect from Bruce Timm's DCAU very Fleischer and very iconic.

I think this, at the current price of only three pounds, is a bargain and a half - snap it up and enjoy one of the better animated Superhero titles.

Oh, there are great bonus features too including a full length commentary and interviews with the cast and crew.

This is an unusual film ... I really enjoyed part of it, while not really enjoying another part. As such, I have mixed feelings.

The 'Doomsday' aspect of the movie - involving an alien monster who savagely destroys anything that's alive - is fantastic. This beast finds itself free on Earth, and goes on a rampage. People die. And Superman has to save the day ... but at the cost of his own life. This tale is adapted from a well-known and top-selling comic book storyline, from the 1990's. Here, it's done well (although with some creative freedom).

But then, once Superman is dead, the plot develops in unusual ways ... in and of themselves, they're okay. But they simply didn't need to be included in THIS film. This movie ought to have focused on, and thoroughly developed, the Doomsday story. Instead, this part of the story is over just one-third of the way into the film.

Although I felt let down by this, I did enjoy the animation and voice-overs. I do wish that, somehow, this movie had been incorporated into the 'Superman: The Animated Series' saga.

Overall, I liked bits and pieces; but I disliked other aspects of the film.

I'll try not to rehash what others have said on here, but what I will do is share the reasons I thought the original story in the comics story arcs worked so well and then how this 'movie' compares. The overall story was truly epic and told over three 'acts' if you will:

1) The death of Superman: The Justice League went up against Doomsday and couldn't stop him. Even Superman got bashed around when he tried to take him on initially before making his 'last stand' at Metropolis. The iconic image of the Superman's yellow 'S-Shield' from his tattered cape blowing like a flag was awesome and captured something of the loss of Earth's greatest hero when he died (photographed by Jimmy Olsen).

2) World without a Superman: In my opinion, the emotional heart of the story dealing with the reaction of individuals to the loss of Superman (supporting characters, heroes etc) and the whole world. My favourite moments were when Clarks parents couldn't even be at the funeral of their son to protect his secret identity and the most tear-jerking moment when Jonathan 'Pa' Kent is in the barn reminiscing about his time with Clark when he was growing up. "How could I be talking to anyone?" he states, facing the grim reality that his son is gone. PLUS the awesome cliff hanger of this 'act' with the sightings of FOUR Supermen! Could any of them be our Kal-El back from the dead? Oh, the mystery!

3) The return of Superman: Four Supermen and bits of evidence to keep you guessing that any one of them could be `the real deal'. By far the most interesting part of the overall tale, in my view. Plus the final battle with a true world threatening menace was a very good conclusion.

So - what are the problems with this movie? Well, I'm sad to say that in this movie there is:

As someone who hasn't read the comic this film is based on, I came to it fresh, my knowledge of Superman is limited to that of the movies.
The story barrels along at a brisk pace and the first act containing the death of Superman does suffer from not having enough time devoted to it, weakening the emotional impact such a momentous event should have. It seems the makers of this movie are concerned more with Superman beating things up in epic fights (suitably epic, bloody and city smashing) than the emotional journey. However, when it does pause the fighting to explore some themes and ideas they work well, be it if Superman is above the law, or if his softness on criminals ultimately costs lives. These are briefly explored but not nearly enough time is devoted to it.
However this film does have an ace up its sleeve: Lex Luthor as voiced by James Masters. This is the greatest incarnation of Lex Luthor I have ever seen. James Masters brings to the role the perfect balance of extreme intelligence and ego whilst creating a slight sexual tension between Lex and Superman that works so well. This in my opinion is the definitive version of Lex Luthor and the scenes involving this character are the best in the film.
The other characters don't fare so well, although they try to make Superman more believable and fallible, he still comes across as the boy scout too good and naive to be true (or believable). Lois Lane is sexualized to a ridiculously curvy extent (understandable in a sexual character such as Catwoman, but Lois is a career woman, a serious journalist who got where she is through brains and a strong independence, not just eye candy in the shortest skirt imaginable).
