The film showcases Superman's more intimate relationships and develops the rest of the Justice LeaThe film showcases Superman's more intimate relationships and develops the rest of the Justice gue in an emotional way. This is, by far, the best adaptation of the comic series yet. The 4K UHD with HDR video presentation is a small improvement from the Blu-ray version, giving this 2D animated film a lot of scope, and the DTS-HD 5.1 mix hits all of the right notes. The extras are sparse but informative.

Storyline: Our Reviewer's Take

The world was rocked back in 1993 when DC Comics decided to kill off the biggest superhero of all time - Superman. This received universal attention in the media and caused a ton of speculation amongst fans as to what's next for Superman and DC Comics. Luckily for everyone, this came in a multi-part storyline, which saw the Man of Steel come back to fight. Since the comics debuted 25 years ago, we've seen many iterations of the original story with multiple comics, TV shows, and movies. Most recently, Batman v Superman tried to add this tragic occasion into their film, but it ultimately failed with audiences because it was just an added action sequence to an already packed and poorly made movie. A few years ago, we also received another animated movie called Superman: Doomsday, which was followed the Death of Superman but left out quite a bit of the development in characters. It wasn't well received.

Today, DC Comics has released yet another Death of Superman adaptation. This animated movie will be served in two parts with the second film releasing next year. I'm happy to say, though, that The Death of Superman follows the comics quite closely and is a tiny bit longer than the previous film, which gives us some more time with these characters so we really feel the loss of Superman. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this story, specifically for this film, we center on Superman as he's working with the Justice League on some business, while Lex Luthor is up to his devious ways. At some point, a meteor crashes down on Earth in the ocean and a giant beast emerges and starts killing anyone in his path. This beast makes his way to Metropolis. One of the side stories here is the loving relationship between Lois Lane and Supes, where Lois finally meets Superman's alter ego's parents, but realizes he is hiding a secret. Of course, that secret is that he's, in fact, Superman and not the bumbling reporter Clark Kent. This causes real strife between them at an inopportune time, as Superman has to go destroy this beast Lois Lane dubbed Doomsday.




The end result is a somber one; Earth's hope is killed and broadcast across the globe. People mourn, but I imagine the second half of this big movie will feature the return along with a few other Supermans in the mix. What this 2D animated does so well is connect you with Superman's personality and his close relationships, including Lois and his parents. Even Lex Luthor has some redeeming qualities. The film also shows how each superhero grieves differently with Superman's death, which is spot on.

The 2D animation evokes those older nostalgic cartoons from the late 1980s and early 1990s, and feels more like a real movie rather than some polished piece of 3D animation. It's a great throwback to our childhood, with some good voice work from Rainn Wilson, Jerry O'Connell, Rosario Dawson, Nathan Fillon, and Rebecca Romijn. These actors bring these superheroes to life and give them real emotions in this devastating time for the DCU. The Death of Superman is a great adaptation and perhaps the best one we have, to date, on the subject matter.
