    The sixth DVD project from Warner Bros's DC Animated Universe unit, "Superman/Batman: Public Enemies" is a fun, socially-conscious adaptation of the six-part comic book story/graphic novel by writer Jeph Loeb and artists Ed McGuinness and Dexter Vines. Sure, it's short (67 minutes) and not to the letter (no continuity-oriented sidebars), but it's action-packed coolness. America's plagued with crime, economic despair and war, making it easy for unethical corporate shark Lex Luthor (Clancy Brown, "The Shawshank Redemption" ) to run for and win the White House. There, he initiates that meta-humans and costumed crime-fighters serve the U.S. government, but the Big Two, optimistic Kryptonian boy scout Superman (Tim Daly, "Private Practice") and brooding urban detective Batman (Kevin Conroy, "Dynasty") rightfully feel he's full of it (including the "sh"). That gives the mastermind reason to frame the Man of Steel with the murder of "reformed" Kryptonite-powered cyborg Metallo (John C McGingley, "Scrubs"), marking him a wanted criminal and Bats as an accessory. As the Big Two fight both friends and foes, there's a huge chunk of Kryptonite headed towards Earth. The stakes are very high. With a script by Stan Berkowitz ("Justice League: The Animated Series"), director Sam Liu ("Jackie Chan Adventures", "The Batman") gives "Public Enemies" the blockbuster-with-a-brain treatment, a fashion used in previous DC animated projects. Reprising their roles from the heroes' solo shows, Conroy and Daly are great, emphasizing their characters's differences on how to mete out justice. Brown, also doing a reprisal, nearly counters with their heroism with his callous insanity. The standard but lively animation interestingly echoes the art by McGuinness and Vines. The other voice actors are competent: CCH Pounder ("The Shield") replaying government liaison Amanda Waller from "League"; Xander Berkeley ("Shanghai Noon", "Year One") as the noble Captain Atom and Richard Chavira ("Desperate Housewives") as his volatile counterpart Major Force. It's weird hearing Allison Mack ("Smallville") as Power Girl, due to the character's…well, you know, but she's durable in the role, even with a subtle, but funny adult gag, validating the PG-13 rating. "Public Enemies" should be on every DC Comics fan's wanted DVD's list.

    The Superhero Duo Movie that Fans Want to See

    This adaptation of DC's Batman/Superman comic series is top notch. WB Animation capture the essence of Bats and Supes relationship that harkens itself to classic buddy movies like Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid. The two titans are closest of friends overcoming to greatest of odds with only the reliance of each other...and that's all they need. ...Ah, if only Warner Brothers followed suit with this dynamic instead for Batman Vs. Superman then perhaps it could have been great...

    If you love comics and you like the DC universe, you need to get your hands on these. There is a whole series of them that come with the graphic novels, the bluray, and the digital download of both the comic and the movie. This is a great product if you are a fan. The price is worth it even if you are only wanting the graphic novel, since the price for them is less then that you will pay at any comic store and they don't come with any of the other stuff.

    Almost a classic

    Kevin Conroy and Tim Daly are the voices of Batman and Superman as far as I'm concerned. The art style is a little different than the standard set by the Justice League series but it is quite good. The voice acting is superb and I liked the plot which ended up where I expected but wasn't entirely predictable along the way. The ending felt rushed and a little cheesy but I still enjoyed the overall experience. I would recommend this to any fan of the Barman, Superman, or Justice League series.

    For my money no live action version of the DC Universe has ever lived up the to the animated films that DC comics has produced over the past 10 years. I don't mind buying them again not only to have them in a Bluray format but the bonus of a hard cover graphic novel included makes the purchase well worth the price. I've collected all that have been released so far and look forward to future reissues with books and blurays.

    Awesome bonus movie included

    This is the first time you see all the details on the heroes, just like the comic books. If you haven't seen the Justice League TV series, watch the 1st 4 bonus episodes first. Bruce Timm gave you a movie as a bonus feature that really makes you appreciate this film. This was the best story arc from JLU and will make you crave the complete series in 1080P/Dolby True HD on Blu-ray!

    This is a high quality, hardcover graphic novel with a blu ray, DVD, and digital copy of the animated movie based on the story. Original hardcover copies of the original 2004 printing of this graphic novel start at $108.09 on Amazon, and do not even include copies of the movie. This is a great buy for any Batman and Superman fans.

    The real Batman vs Superman

    After years of hype, and anticipation for 2 of the most iconic super heroes of our time to be on the big screen at the same time. It is sad to say that, this animated movie was far better than the actual movie in the theatre. If you have to choose between the animated movie, and the real movie, choose the animated one.
