5.0 out of 5 stars Good Super-Flick! Nov. 13 2013
The Man of Steel is dying after receiving an extreme dose of solar radiation. Trying to live out his last days and wrap up all loose ends, he spends it with Lois and gives her a special serum that grants her superpowers for twenty-four hours. When unexpected twists and turns arise, the two must save Metropolis together. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor has plans of his own and when he gets his hands on the serum that granted Lois superpowers, he becomes as powerful as Superman.

Can the Last Son of Krypton stop his arch nemesis while also saving the Earth from a damaged sun before he perishes?

When I think of classic Superman, I think of this story. The reason is because this story involves all of the classic elements of Superman lore, everything from the basics like Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, all the way to the Fortress of Solitude, the bottle city of Kandor, a full array of superpowers—and in the case of this story, some new ones, which reminds me of the “bonus” powers portrayed in Superman IV (though they’re not silly in this one like they were in that flick)—the Phantom Zone, Superman using not only his super brawn but also his super brains, Lois having superpowers (which has happened quite a lot in Supes’s history—she’s got a cool costume in this, by the way), and a ton more.

Based on the graphic novel by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely, this flick asks the hard questions about Superman’s mortality, if such a thing is possible, and if it is possible, then how would that possibly play out? Unlike Superman’s death when the Man of Steel went up against Doomsday, this story isn’t about a giant slugfest, but about a slow death caused by the very thing that gives Superman his powers: the sun.

By J. Lovins TOP 50 REVIEWER
DC Comics presents "ALL*STAR SUPERMAN" (2010) ~ (76 min/Color) ~ Starring: James Denton (Superman), Anthony LaPaglia (Lex Luthor), Christina Hendricks (Lois Lane), Ed Asner (Perry White), Matthew Gray Gubler (Jimmy Olsen), Linda Cardellini (Nasthalthia Luthor), Frances Conroy (Martha Kent)

Directed by Sam Liu

Producers Bruce Timm and Bobbie Page, Co-producer Alan Burnett and screenwriter Dwayne McDuffie, brings writer Grant Morrison's graphic novel to the screen with great animation. Voice acting is quite good pulling panels and pages and inserting into this animated movie.

Being a fan of animation regardless if DC or Marvel, love when each reintroduces characters from the GOLDEN AGE OF COMICS. Film was quite good considering the area it must cover in this 76 minute adaptation, just couldn't fit the entire novel. cause they only have so much time.

Superman shows he's just as smart as Lex, which in some comics it is not shown...good to see it in this story. You can see that he connects with the rest of the world, showing why Superman is so well received all over the World. Great scene with Superman and Martha Kent (his Mother) --- Lois Lane plays her character as an equal to Superman, when she receive special powers from her MAN OF STEEL.

Probably the worst of the Warner Premiere DC Animated films in my opinion. The story is all over the place, the animation is sub-par, and overall its kind of boring. The art style is based on that of Frank Quitely, who is one of the worst artists working in comics today. I buy every DC animated movie on day one, and this and Batman: Year One were the only ones I regretted buying. Batman: Year One suffered from sticking too close to the comic resulting in a badly paced bore, while this one was just all around bad.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing March 19 2011
I've read a lot of very good reviews of this movie; the writers, the artists, and the voices are quite well established. But let's face it, DC has put out much more entertaining movies than this. The plot revolves around how would Superman spend his last days if he knew he was going to die. (I don't want to give anything away, since it is worth a rental if you get the special 'buy 2 get a third free.') In the process, he faces some uninspired villains I had not heard of and sounds bored constantly. And where's Wonder Woman and Batman --he's dying for pete's sake -- I know they would show up. Of course I have not read the book that this film was based on, so I suppose I can't blame the movie. However: even if one accepts the story as is, the execution just didn't catch my interest. Flat, flat, flat. Luthor was the only character who seemed to have any character. The one scene that I did find touching was Superman's return home. Yet, it came and went so quickly. I think that is the real problem here: the film was too compressed -- too much going on and there was too much to unpack. It made what could have been very emotional and touching rather unmoving; I didn't reach for the Kleenex once.

Bring him back and try again.
