Trivia

In the scene where Toyman kidnaps the children, after "Superman" awakes from the dead, he screams, "School's out... FOREVER". This is a reference to the Alice Cooper song 'School's Out' where Cooper sings the same thing. See more »

Goofs

Lex says "Red and green, the colors of Christmas." When he does, he holds out his arms to his sides palm up and looks wondrously up at the red solar lamps. It then cuts to a closer angle and instantly his right arm and hand are in a different position and his body is turned differently just before he begins pounding on Superman. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Lex Luthor: Just look at him. So sleek. So powerful. So... beautiful, like some great golden god made flesh. Of course, any sensible god would demand absolute obedience in return for his favor. But, no, our Man of Steel protects us, with no strings attached. The people? Hmph. They practically worship him anyway. Enjoy your reign while you may, Superman. For surely as night follows day, there comes a time when even gods must die.

Hard hitting and will make you flinch
21 August 2007 | by billzebub91902See all my reviews

Saw this at the San Diego comic con and the 2 hour wait was worth it! Now this is a fresh take on the Death of Superman (obviously only an hour and half long verse how many comic book issues?) but what a movie! This does deserve the PG-13 rating as your going to see Superman and Doomsday in a nasty street fight! (There was also one bad word in the movie too) Then there is Lex Luther. You will hate this bastard (oh yeah, he goes over the top to prove what a scum bag he is).

Yes it is animated but unlike the other DC animated movies this one is probably not for the wee ones (2-7). There is a quit a bit of death in this movie, not bloody or gross but this movie would make Robocop say "that's a lot of bodies." And that is the first 20 minutes.

But once you start watching this one you will be glued regardless if you watched any of the Superman movies before (animated or live action). Don't get popcorn till the middle of this one as your going to spill it in the opening from saying "DAMN! Can they do that?" And then when it is over you can ponder if you should open up a construction business in Metroplis as they will need it.
