Action packed team-up movie
12 February 2015 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

This is the first Superman/Batman team up movie I have ever seen. And it's fast-paced with some entertaining and cool action. The story isn't all that great, but it also didn't seem like it was something that was just there to make the two heroes team up. The animation on the other hand is fluid and well animated, although the design might not be appealing to everyone. So the story is this, Les is the president of the united states and has some heroes under his thumb by winning their trust. That is except Batman and Superman who he puts a hit out on. So the two heroes are running and fighting other heroes while finding out a way to delve into the source of the matter at hand and take down Lex Luthor. The premise isn't anything super original, but it's a Superman/Batman team up movie and that in itself makes it worth a watch.

7.2/10
