    More excellent DC Direct-to-Video Animated action

    I love these DC direct-to-video movies. They adhere closer to the comics and carry the central themes of the DC universe better than the rather lackluster DC CU. Reign of the Supermen is the latest of these animated films and picks up where the Death of Superman animated movie leaves off. While RotS is a sequel, you don't have to see the DoS to enjoy it. Superman is dead and there is a vacuum to fill those big red boots. Viewers will be treated to onscreen presentations of Steel and Superboy -- I love to see more obscure comic book characters come to life! My only complaint about the animated films (and the DC CU as well) is that some of the fight scenes are drawn out too long. Your heart aches for all the property damage long after you stop caring about who is getting pounded into the pavement. This is a pacing problem that most current DC properties have. If you can ignore the extra long fight scenes, the DC animated films are an excellent entertainment choice for the comic book nerd and the super hero fan who wants to learn more about the DC universe alike. Oh, and be aware... these movies are NOT FOR YOUNG KIDS.

    Good Movie Poor Packaging

    The movie was great. The animation and fast paced good storyline is becoming the norm of DC’s animated movies. The packaging for this movie is where I have an issue. On one hand I like the full size, hardcover “Death of Superman” graphic novel. Good read and a welcomed additon to any graphic novel collection, and the price for this with the movie was a great value. The downside that arises is that the book serves as the jewel case for the Blu-Ray/DVD which makes adding it to one’s collection difficult. I would have preferred in the end the way Best Buy typically handles Blu-Ray/Book combos, which is a miniaturized version of the book packaged with the Blu-Ray/DVD, that way I get the movie to display and the comic to add my collection. Overall though I would suggest that if you wish to add the graphic novel to your collection and like the idea of the book being the jewel case then get this, but if you just want the movie get the movie.

    All in all I’d say this is a good updated adaptation of the original comics. The story is over 20 years old now so I get DC taking a few liberties to keep it relevant in 2019. I don’t want to spoil anything. Chances are if you are reading this review you already know the story. Or do you? Lol. Like I said. A few liberties taken so it’s not exactly like the comics. But still worth watching if you are a dc animation fan

    This is an updated take on the Reign of the Supermen storyline from DC comics. There was a "Death of Superman" animated film called Superman: Doomsday which was interesting, but skipped the Reign storyline in favor of something a little less far-reaching. This version still re-invents the Reign storyline, but still deviates from that storyline a bit. Still, a good watch (after you've seen Death of Superman".

    I enjoyed this movie very much. I wasn't sure going in if I would enjoy it, seeing that there were so many Supermen that I never really heard of, but I went in with an open mind and enjoyed it very much. I thought the ending was satisfying and definitely stay for the after credits because it seems to set up the next film. keep in mind this is part 2 of a continuation from the first movie death of Superman.

    I really like this movie but they need to stop making jokes about the Teen Titans they are a great team and they deserve respect the one before this also made fun of the Titans their needs to be a third Teen Titans movie but aside from that grip the movie when watched after Death of Superman is an thrilling movie that reminds people how awesome Superman can be when treated with respect and care.

    Good, but could be better. I know they needed to update and edit it from the original comic, but at least it was way better than the first Superman:Doomsday dvd. Too much change/editing on Doomsday forced them to eventually create and release an updated version in later years. Still waiting for the Superman: Red Son to be done...

    Another strong effort from the people @ WB/DC Comics direct to DVD line of movies. I own them ALL! This is obviously the part 2 follow to last fall's Death Of Superman "reboot". The story deviates considerably from the story told in the comics so many years ago but, was very entertaining just the same! Enjoyed the appearance of the Justice League at the end!

    Reign of the Supermen, is not a direct adaptation of the comic books, but it was still enjoyable. I just wish they adapted it sooner. The only negative thing I can say is that it seemed to cram a whole lot in a short run time. They did a good job, just seemed a little rushed and that's the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

    The movie is good. Lots of action, plot twists and super powered villains. I enjoyed this a lot better than Superman:doomsday dvd. However, if you don't want this book don't buy this combo. The salespeople don't tell you that once you open the book to see the movie, your stuck with the book. Return policy voided. That's bull!!

    I've been a fan of anything Superman. I can say for this movie its good. However it's not exactly like the comic and neither is the death of superman. Spoiler alert, in the comic the Justice League never fought Doomsday. But for this move, if you enjoy a superman or superhero movie. This one is a good buy. Enjoy.

    The movie overall feels great and covers a lot of the story. It does leave out the parts with Johnathan Kent trying to retrieve Superman's soul and seems a little short in runtime for the story it was trying to tell. Overall great flick, could have been better.

    The death of Superman, was a very epic moment in comic book history. So was his return. Am happy to say this movie delivers and we finally have a worthy rendition of his return arch. Some changes to the original story but each of these Supermen have there time to shine.

    While the DC animated films are generally good, this one stands out from the rest bc you can tell the makers put more effort into this project than some of the others. If u we’re expecting a good sequel to the last film, you won’t be disappointed.

    Superman is "dead" so several "heroes" with powers show up to take Superman's place. Of course, they fight to see who is superior. Lex Luther is actually the most interesting character in this animated feature.

    As a standalone piece it's weak, and it's weaker than Death Of Superman. But its existence allows Death of Superman to breath which is why Death of Superman is so much better than Doomsday was 11 years ago.
