Brainiac Has Memories For Sale
ccthemovieman-1 from United States
13 June 2007
Brainiac, the living computer that once ruled Krypton because of its
vast knowledge but escaped before the planet blew up, comes to Earth
and meets his "contact," Lex Luthor. That's not a good pair to have
working together and Luthor informs Superman that Brainiac (now in a
robot-like human form) wants to see him aboard his spaceship. When
Superman enters the ship, he isn't welcomed warmly.
After things settle down, Brainiac explains to our hero, "We are
orphans of the same planet. While you have been on earth, I have been
roamed the universe." He further explains how he has gained the
knowledge that exists on all the planets. They are in the form of
"memory modules" in one of the ship's rooms. One belongs to Krypton and
Superman gets a quick peek and sees his father. Brianiac quickly stops
that and then offers a partnership with Superman in exchange for all
the memories of his former planet and parents.
Of course, Superman is not going to abandon Earth, "my home now," but
he thinks about it. Eventually, he sees Brainiac for whom he is - an
evil "being." Oddly, Luthor and Superman wind up on the same side
against this alien.
This is another action-packed adventure with a lot of violence, so I
would caution showing this to little kids if that is an issue with any
parent reading this.
