    Synopsis


    Superman: Unbound
    The Man of Steel fights to protect Metropolis against the same destructive force that obliterated Krypton in this animated adventure based on Geoff Johns and Gary Frank's 2008 comic book story arc Superman: Brainiac. Superman (voice of Matt Bomer) is preoccupied with Lois Lane (voice of Stana Katic) and training Supergirl (voice of Molly Quinn) when he learns that Brainiac (voice of John Noble) has set his sights on Metropolis. An unstoppable juggernaut whose power grows with each new city ne collects, Brainiac will put The Man of Steel's true strength to the ultimate test. Directed by James Tucker, Superman: Unbound also features voice work by Stephen Root, Alexander Gould, Diedrich Bader, and Frances Conroy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Another great Brainiac story

      After the last Superman made-for-DVD movie, "Superman vs. the Elite," I began to see that the Bruce Timm-era of really great DC properties in animation had started to lose their way. I was happy to see that "Unbound" improved upon the last outing, albeit with only slightly better animation. The unfortunate thing, though, is that the story wasn't all that better. To me, the best Superman stories of the past 20 years include Brainiac. And as much as I like Geoff Johns, I didn't care for this Brainiac story as much as I did how they had him in the Superman Animated Series. Humanizing him into the android form reminded me too much of the old comics and Legion of Doom-era Brainiac, and that just wasn't very interesting to me. However, he was a lot more interesting in THIS android form than in those old comics and cartoons. Just not as good as TAS. It was definitely worth seeing if you are a fan of this genre. The voice actors were very good, even if they were very unknown. Andrea Romano continues to prove the she knows how to cast these characters and stay true to fan's views of them.

      I just watched this & I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's an adaptation from an Action Comics 5 parter from 2008. It's been awhile since I read those but from what I remember the movie didn't stray too far. There are pretty good action sequences & some good emotional depth as well. The voice actors do a very good job. You've got Matt Bomer (White Collar) as Supes, Stana Katic (Castle) as Lois, Molly Quinn (Castle) as Supergirl, & John Noble (Fringe) as Brainiac. The extras include: Braniac: Technology and Terror (24:42), A Digital Comic Excerpt from the Graphic Novel "Superman: Brainiac, 4 eps from Superman: The Animated Series - "The Last Son of Krypton", "New Kids in Town" & "Little Girl Lost" pts 1 & 2. Blu-ray exclusives extras: Audio Commentary & Kandor: History of the Bottle City (16:54)

      I'm a sucker for these DC animated titles. I never miss one. That said, Superman deserves better, especially coming on the heels of the previous two Batman entries, which were both excellent. If you're new to the DC animated universe and you want some Man of Steel, check out All Star Superman or Death of Superman. Either of them is a better place to start than this, exceedingly average, Superman versus Braniac adventure. This one is for completists (like me).

      a flat cutout of a interesting story. No "pop".

      I have read other reviews in different places, all singing this film's praise but I don't see why. To me this story felt flat and uneventful, with the humans/kryptonians drawn fairly funky. I also feel that if you are going to name it Superman Unbound, he should act like he had to pull out the stops to win. To me this was a by-the-numbers hollow Superman story. However, the animation is good and so is the voice work.

      DC certainly knows how to do animation! Superman Unbound has a lot of what I love, power, action, facing off against the bad guy. Love, Love, Love this film. If you enjoy animation, and are a fan of DC, even if your not a fan of DC, this iw worth watching. And even owning.

      Nicely-animated with well-cast voices. Pretty good pacing with lots of action (typical for these DCAU features). Just wish that DC would stop serving up plots which tie Supergirl to the villain; it's getting a little dull. It would also be nice if DC extended these movies by a couple minutes in order to allow for a little more emotional development, like the Pa Kent storyline from the source.

      Fun Superman movie, but could have been a lot more

      This was a really fun Superman story, but it didn't live up to the book. What's really weird is that this was the last story arc of Geoff Johns' run. It would have been cool if they'd started at the beginning and worked their way through his run with 3 or 4 movies. Overall, it was fun, but it didn't have the same impact that Johns' run had built up to in 20 or so comic issues.

      This is a great DVD. It vividly follows the comic book (so if you are looking for any deviation from that story, don't buy the DVD). I was extremely happy with the comic (and therefore very happy with the DVD). The figure is another great example of collectibles included in DC packaging! Overall a very solid buy and a must for any collection.
