Synopsis


All-Star Superman
This animated adventure finds the ultimate superhero Superman succumbing to the clutches of disturbed criminal mastermind Lex Luthor, who has constructed a plan to murder the Man of Steel with solar radiation. Following his exposure to the deadly phenomenon, Superman is sure he only has weeks to live, and lays plans to make good on the many tasks that ahead of him before he expires -- including telling the truth about his secret identity to Lois Lane, and defeating Lex once and for all. But is the hero's fate truly sealed, or can he appeal the fatal sentence and live to fight once more? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely's comic of the same name is so good that you might think it hard for any movie adaptation to capture its essence. Happily, that isn't the case here. The DC Animated team has done yeoman's work of paring down Morrison and Quitely's work into a lean-but-not-rushed cartoon experience. One of the best DCA features.

    If you like Superman, don't get this video

    This movie had no central plot. It says it does, but it seems more like a bunch of short stories that don't make any sense than a single movie. What I could follow didn't even make sense sometimes. I kept thinking, "Why would ________ do that?". Fill in the blank with Superman, Lois Lane, and Lex Luthor. Don't waste your money!!!

    An Absolute 5 star film! I believe it had the most heart of these films to date, and they all have heart! I really wish this style of story telling would keep coming. DC is doing it though! If you like any of these animated films than trust me!: THEY ARE ALL WORTH BUYING AND WATCHING OVER AND OVER!

    Of all the recent WB animated superhero movies this is the best. It's origins are from the graphic novel of the same title. The plot is one-of-a-kind and unlike any other Superman tale. For the price, I highly recommend purchasing it or at least renting it.

    I loved this new take on Superman and the fact that they give Lois some powers for a day. My only gripe was the ending was left a bit open and I wish they would have had a more definitive ending.

    this was a really good movie with a very good plot. Other then it being way too short.. You would have to be a fan of the Superman franchise lover in order to fully enjoy this title.

    If you love superman this is a great movie to add to your collection the only bad part is that there is no digital copy of this movie that comes with it.
