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.

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.Read more ›
- You must know that you're looking at the most powerful hero of them all (demonstration of his extreme super powers)
- Even with all that power, Superman wants to do the right thing (by taking the high road)
- Even with all that power, Superman can still feel sadness, pain and be hurt
- That the threat is so great, that ONLY Superman can save the day and does so
Based on these points, All-Star Superman delivers on all of them! The story does not lose time to explain why he suddenly becomes even more powerful than his ordinary self! So powerful indeed that we are given a few tasks to show how easily Superman now overcomes physical or intellectual tasks! The story then shifts to Lex Luthor and his new scheme to get Superman and we see all the ramifications of the plot on Superman's life, love and what it will mean for the world. Even after all the bad thing that is thrown at him, he still seeks to find what is good in every situation to solve the problem. The story culminates to a world-destroying confrontation where Superman has to sacrifice himself to save the world and he does so one last time.
You can't be more selfless and heroic than that!
The animation is superb! I tried watching the normal version vs the blu ray one and yes, the blu ray is extremely clear!
I don't know about everyone, but in my case, I always end up moved by the ending!
If a movie can do that, then I know it's a good one! :)
Buy it, rent it or whatever, but you have to see it!

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. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Kevin Davies
