Tonight I watched the 2007 DC animation movie SUPERMAN DOOMSDAY, based upon the infamous Death of Superman comics from the early 1990s.
The voice talent is excellent, with Adam Baldwin voicing Clark Kent/Superman, Anne Heche (Lois Lane), James Marsters (Lex Luthor) and genuine voice stars of Tom “Spongbob” Kenny and John “Bender” Di Maggio voicing some supporting cast.
I was never a great fan of this storyline in the original comic book, but I really like this animated interpretation. The story has been presented in a very clear and less complex way, and the pace of the film was quite good.
There is plenty of action scenes, the big fight between Superman and Doomsday takes up much time, but the graphic nature of the destruction certainly deserves the PG13 rating for this release.
7 out of 10.
