Superman The Last Son of Krypton: Solid Superman movie
5 January 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The Last Son Of Krypton was essentially an introduction before the Superman animated television series premiered. Therefore as you'd imagine this is an origin story, from Krypton to Smallville to Metropolis.

Sadly this is only an hour long and that's a lot of content to get into 60 minutes! Regardless they do a surprisingly good job as do the voice actors who would go on to become regulars in the DC animated universe.

With an introduction to his rivalry with Lex Luthor to Braniacs part in his homeworlds demise this does tick every box even if it does feel a tad rushed.

This feel good 60 minutes is a must for fans of the animated television series and makes a good stand alone effort for fans of the characters as well.

Good job.

The Good:

Malcolm McDowell

Origin story is well done

The Bad:

A bit "Too" Warner Brothers

Rushed

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Kryptonian dress sense was awful

Colonel Sanders flies coach
