Trivia

While this film features the same character designs, general look and style, and some of the previous cast members of Superman (1996), this film is in no way part of the same universe or canon. Duane Capizzi stated that this was indeed a film for children and was not intended for an adult audience that the animated series had been written for (despite being marketed as a Saturday morning show). He said that he and the creative team simply "borrowed" the designs of the former television show. See more »

A putrid piece of garbage
28 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WHO STOLE BRAINIAC'S BRAIN? Well, folks; I hope you enjoyed the fifteen years between 1991 and 2006 with Bruce Timm's high standards of excellence in scripts and animation -- because the abysmally awful dialogue running through this moooovie is straight out of the worst of the 1970's Hanna-Barbarra lame-brain era.

How awfully bad is this movie? Lex Luther and Brainiac, evil geniuses extraordinaire, are reduced to smirking numbskulls uttering inane dialogue. -- I cannot fathom a *conscious* reason for this, either, since even "explanatory" dialogue (in which everyone always explains everything they're doing as they're doing it, so elementary school kiddies will "get it") needn't be as horrible as this.

Powers Booth? Lance Henrickson? -- I have an idea: Let's animate the corpse of Ted Knight, and let him read all the parts in the same lobotomized histrionics which put a fork in "Stupid Friends".

Everyone involved in production, writing and editing should be sentenced to the Agony Matrix: Direct neural stimulation of pain-receptors. All of them. Forever.

*Sigh*....back to anime for anything remotely engaging on television. Lord knows I won't get it from this, or Squidbillies, or any of the other stupefyingly rotten home-made junk the Cartoon Network is running now.
