So I watched the animated Superman: Doomsday today and it kicked ass. This is the movie that Superman Returns should have been. Lots of Superman smashing the crap out of stuff.
It’s based on The Death of Superman storyline which I never read so I can’t tell you how accurate it was. One warning though, this is not for little kids. It’s rated PG-13 for a reason. It contains blood and there’s a fairly high body count.
The only thing I didn’t like about it was they didn’t use the voice actors that were used for these characters during the DCAU. It took me half the movie to get used to Adam Baldwin as Superman. Anne Heche was ok as Lois Lane. But I’m sorry, Clancy Brown is Lex Luthor. Luckily he’s reprising his role on The Batman.
Anyway, overall I liked it a lot. It’s worth a buy.
4 1/2 out of 5.
