Action Packed Superhero Extravaganza. Terrific!
28 September 2010 | by Vivekmaru45See all my reviews

Nonstop action start to finish. Great acting by all the three lead characters Batman, Superman and Lex Luther. The background musical score is also superb.

The plot is very good and effective. This shows again the important of a well written script.

The plot: Lex Luthor has been elected President of United States during a severe nation-wide economic depression. This is mainly due to his great wealth. The United States government discovers that a massive Kryptonite meteor is hurtling toward Earth. Luthor wants to destroy it using nuclear missiles and take all the credit for it. Now all he needs is to take Superman out of the way for good.

He immediately proceeds to frame Superman. He engineers the a fight between Metallo and Superman. Later we find Metallo has been killed, and Superman has been framed for it. Luther puts a million dollar bounty on Superman.

Batman who has been observing Luthor and the meteor all the time, intervenes and helps Superman to clear his name in the eyes of the public.

But with all the villains looking to collect on the bounty, will Superman live to see another day, destroy the meteor and foil Luther's plans yet again?

Watch and find out.

10/10 a must for any DVD/BLU-RAY collection.
