    Good, however...

    I actually wrote a review on this on the DC website. If you are expecting an excellent follow up to the "Death Of Superman" film... you might be disappointed. Now before the "fanboys" get upset, you have to look at this movie on how it stands on it's own merits. Whether you read the "Superman" comics or not... there are some truths to the DC Universe and the characters within (which, until now, only DC Live Action films seem to ignore). There are scenes where the Justice League is "just there... doing nothing" while the "Supermen" run amok. The first film answered the question of where was the REAL Justice League when Supes fought Doomsday. And it was superbly done. This film... the league should have just called in sick. *SADLY* *Spoiler* 6 months have past since Superman's death and here are the Supermen. No real attempts to give you background and motivations... no solid character building... except for maybe Steel. Lois "figures out" who the Supermen are while "The World's Greatest Detective" is just Window Dressing in this film... ludicrous. Remember, this is the "Super Reporter" that had NO CLUE Clark (whom she was seriously dating) was Superman UNTIL he TOLD HER in the first film...he did have some amazing "secret keeping" glasses to be sure. lol. The antagonist, once revealed, falls back to the classic... "I blame Superman for EVERYTHING" even when revealed that he is but a puppet for another. And you never care about "why he blames Superman" even in the abysmal "reason" reveal later... the best villains are the ones where there is some "redeeming qualities"... he has none. This film did veer from the comic in choice of Bad Guys, however, if it had been told better I doubt any fanboy would have noticed/ complained. Honestly, this was not a BAD film... it just wasn't a GREAT film like "Death Of Superman" was. They literally condensed "Reign Of The Supermen" and "Return of Superman" into ONE FILM when they should have explored the Supermen in this one with conflicts with the Justice League and TEASED Superman's return af the end for a THIRD FILM.

    Good follow-up to Death of Superman

    This was a decent movie. Death was terrific, and a good update to the original comic series, but this one wasn't up to that level. It was still better than most of the recent DC animated movies which used to be automatic greatness. I enjoyed t, and so did my kids, but it was way off the original material (that I'm not completely opposed to like most fanboys). My issue was that they went down the same old trails making Darkseid the real behind the scenes baddie and again, too much Luthor who seems to be the go-to fill-in for villainy. I love Luthor and Darkseid, but they don't need to be always the ones involved or putting the earth at peril. Still, it was good and made for a decent end to the story line.

    I myself collected the majority of the Reign of the Supermen comics back in the early nineties when I was a teen. Not being a big fan of the big blue boy scout I was intrigued to see him meet his doom. That said the movie was not like the comic (gasps). The movie was not bad but I wish it didn't stray from the original as much point being such as the Eradicator being a hologram. Anyways that said it has just enough action and intrigue to keep you interested especially if you never read the comics but for us who have it was a bit of a let down.

    This was a 2 part movie that should have only been 1 long one. Feels like they were trying to do what they did with Batman Dark Knight Returns, but that was 4 comics. This has too much unnecessary content similar to the first 30 minutes of The Killing Joke. Good movie, but could have been better.

    I've been a fan of DC's animated movies ever since the first Doomsday release in 2006 (iirc). Actually going back to the Batman animated series in the early 90's. It seems like the recent releases have lower and lower quality animation. It's still worth watching if you're a fan, but I'd wait for a sale.

    Middle of the road for DC

    Watched both this and Constantine and this was not quite as good as the other DC animated movies. I think they need to focus a bit more on animation quality if it's presented as a feature film. Story was pulled fine from the comics but not worth more than one watch. Barely recommended.

    a look at 5 different Superman characters, not my favorite of the DC animated films but it's worth taking a look at. If you can find this on sale at a reasonable price and like the DC animated movies then you should pick this one up.

    It was a good movie for comic fans... The only problem I had was it was nowhere on you shelf and in the back of your store inventory. it wasn't shelf maintenance at all, especially the day of the movie release.

    Not the best out of the superman stories, not the worst. Entertaining, but pretty much an afterthought after you watch it. a good rental in my opinion!

    This does use the same characters from the comics, but things are tweaked quite a bit. Origins have changed, the story altered.

    They changed 2 much of the comic book. If you never read any of the comics it will be good, but all the changes made it an ok movie

    Not bad, but not spectacular either. I may have to watch it a second time as I fell asleep near the end. My husband liked it okay

    A good followup but the first part was much better. Maybe when this is combined as one movie it'll flow better

    This movie stayed pretty close to the comic book story line, but with updates for DC's New 52 continuity.

    I feel that this movie was just not as good as the other ones. Weak storyline made this movie just OK.
