    Easily the best animated Superman movie to date, It had a good story that is easy to follow and it has some good action scenes too, A little more humour helped too, It was nice to see Brainiac being used well this time as a good main villain is what makes the film, Let's hope any future Superman animated movies can be just as good.

    Feels like a cheap, almost overly convoluted excuse to watch Superman fly around punching drones and Brainiac in the face. The emotional aspect of SG's subplot is rather contrive as well, never really hitting a true heartfelt moment and almost comes off as a separate movie altogether in wake of Brainiac's threat. If you want to watch Supes punch things hard and explosions, sure, watch it. Frankly I see no merits in the movie other than a sub-par animated action-fest with a "War of the Worlds" cop-out ending.

    Exciting and action-packed, Superman Unbound is an impressive animated feature from DC Universe. Based on the comic book series Superman: Brainiac, when Superman discovers one of Brainiacs drones in a meteor he leaves Supergirl to service in his stead while he hunts down the source of the drone and attempts to stop Brainiac from coming to Earth. The voice cast is rather good, and includes Matt Bomer, Stana Katic, and Molly Quinn. The writing is also well-done, and creates an interesting and compelling story. Additionally, the animation style is rich and full of color, which enhances the fantasy aspects of the film. Superman Unbound is a well-crafted and entertaining film that's full of adventure.

    What begins in typical superman fashion this new DC animated cartoon kicks of with a bang. The real issue is that brainiac just hasn't got the menace needed to give superman the ultimate threat. Following the superb the dark knight returns this was always going to find it tough. The voice work is adequate but its John noble who really gives the film any real class. Brainiac may lack the presence but he really controls menace with noble breathing life behind him. The problem with a lot of the DC animated films has been the voice work but overall this film is pretty pedestrian. Superman is the normal voice which isn't an issue as he really is pretty straight and narrow. The animation isn't going to set the world on fire but its got that adult feel which is mostly missing from live superman films. The story is quite crammed in for a short running time. The film could of benefitted from extra length to allow brainiac time to create a villain to be proud of. The whole film just lacks the strength that normally works well with DC animation. It's not the worst film around but they do need more story focus for the next one
