Wonderful, one of the best DC movies
1 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love animation and greatly enjoy superhero movies. I found Superman/Batman: Apocalypse to be one of the best DC movies. There is very little that I found particularly wrong with it actually, though Andre Braugher for my tastes wasn't menacing enough as DarkSeid. Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly and Susan Eisenberg however are the embodiment of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman though, while Summer Glau is a nice surprise and Edward Asner is great fun as Granny Goodness. The characters are likable and are developed well, while the animation is full of lavish and atmospheric detail in background, character design and colour and the music is hauntingly rousing. The writing is razor sharp and intelligent and the story has exciting action, affecting drama and compelling storytelling in general, even if a tad rushed towards the end. All in all, has much to love about it. 9/10 Bethany Cox
