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.

The shocking thing here is not really the idea that Superman dies, it's that he bleeds. I can't remember seeing that before in animation.
Once again it's Lex Luther that's behind it all. Unearthing a brutal monster from beneath the ground that battles Superman to the death. Leaving both Metropolis (and Lois Lane) bereft of Superman. Then as the crime rate soars and people begin to lose hope Superman returns, or does he?

This is a slightly more grown-up take on Superman. We get to see him in a relationship with Lois who's becoming wise to his Clark Kent persona and whilst everything is subtly underplayed, it's good to see a more mature story-line that includes both Clark's mother and a more brutal take on Lex.

I'm aware that when they killed Superman off in the comic books there was a huge uproar and although I haven't read that particular comic I think that this film does well with that story with some moments that are both genuinely affecting and surprising. The voice cast are mostly famous people e.g Anne Heche as Lois and they do a good job of bringing their respective characters to life. The animation is also quite good with a bit more moodiness and shadow of both Superman and Metropolis then that is normally seen.
In all a good interesting film that shows a welcome darker more twisted side to the Superman legacy that should be exciting to most fans of animation and cartoons. Thank you.

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.

Why hasn't anyone mentioned anything about how Superman, thought dead, disappears for a long enough period of time that his hair is shoulder length when he returns (ooops, sorry...we all know he returns...right?) and, obviously so does Clark Kent, said to be missing in Afghanistan, but when Soop suddenly comes back, lo and behold! so does Kent.
Isn't that a weak point in a very long recurring plot point?
I didn't read any of the comics from which this animation was adapted, but I gather a lot of subplots had to be dropped to bring it in at 75 minutes.
At the end of the film Clark is back, at least as far as Lois in concerned, but they don't address how he'll explain showing up at the Daily Planet.
Maybe he just won't.
Anyway, I'm enjoying these films - got Doomsday and four others in a boxed set - but, with as seriously as the writers and animators appear to take this stuff, I couldn't help but wonder how this issue got by them all.
Then again, we've been expected to believe that a simple pair of black rimmed glasses has disguised Superman as Clark Kent for a century.
Maybe I'm over thinking it.
And yet, it niggles at me.
One artistic criticism - Superman's face is the least expressively drawn of all of the characters.
Somehow that seems wrong.

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:
