Goofs

Having saved the chopper, Superman and Doomsday go at it again in the street. As they are punching, you can see buildings on the left side of the street, and in the distance there is a small blue building with yellow windows and a taller building beside it to the left with a large sign on top. It then cuts to a close up of Superman getting a good punch to Doomsday's face followed by Doomsday smashing his elbow into Superman's face, and suddenly another building appears between the small blue building and the other one, and the large sign has vanished off the building that was beside it on the left.

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.
