Above average, though far below the series' best
30 December 2013 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

With so many Warner Premier animations coming out these days it is especially hard to keep up with them all. Superman/Batman: Apocalypse follows on from their Public Enemies team-up in 2009. Supes has his name come first in the title as this is primarily his story with Batman playing sidekick.

The movie opens with a meteor splashing into Gotham Harbor and causing untold damage and misery to boat owners and businesses around the water. Batman investigates and is surprised to find naked, pretty Kara Zor-El (that would be Supergirl) has arrived on Earth with not much recollection of what happened.

Her cousin Superman takes her in and promises to teach her how to use her powers correctly on Earth. Kara just wants to be an ordinary girl and Supes is happy to spoil her. Too bad that Darkseid, in the Apokolips realm (or whatever it is) has sinister plans for her and temps her into corruption with promises of almighty power.

As soon as Bats, Supes, Wonder Woman, and that other tall girl go after her things go downhill. I suppose it's a lot like the first Thor movie in that regard (I never bothered with the second one) - the scenes set on Earth were fun and entertaining, but all of the gibberish on Asgard bored me to tears. This DC effort is no different. Watching Kara try to fit in on Earth is nice, but last third in the Apokolips realm is tedious and repetitive, and then it carries on into Smallville too. Someone smashes into a building, they hit back and someone else smashes into another building, then they hit back and the first person smashes into a building again. I'd love to see the scripts for these comic book movies, it must be the same words printed over and over. Thankfully, the 9/11 porn of tumbling skyscrapers seen in abundance in Man of Steel (and far too many others) is absent here.

The movie was surprisingly violent in some scenes too. It is by no means a bad entry in the Bruce Timm DC universe, just a little derivative.
