Embittered by Superman's heroic successes and soaring popularity, Lex Luthor forms a dangerous alliance with the powerful computer/villain Brainiac. Using advanced weaponry and a special strain of Kryptonite harvested from the far reaches of outer space, Luthor specifically redesigns Brainiac to defeat the Man of Steel.
As the home planet of the Green Lantern Corps faces a battle with an ancient enemy, Hal Jordan prepares new recruit Arisia for the coming conflict by relating stories of the first Green Lantern and several of Hal's comrades.
When LexCorps accidentally unleash a murderous creature, Doomsday, Superman meets his greatest challenge as a champion. Based on the "The Death of Superman" storyline that appeared in DC Comics' publications in the 1990s.
Well, my title pretty much says it all. I liked Gerard Butler's voice acting, he added a lot of presence and a sense of urgency to his character. The animation was stylish and well made. There was really nothing done with the atmosphere. Production values were high.
But unfortunately the story is uninteresting. There is no real tension. You get no back-story whatsoever. I have not read the graphic novel, so maybe this serves some kind of point, but standing on it's own I just cant see it.
So fans of the graphic novel will probably like it, many others will not. But it is short enough to be worth a watch.
