Audience Reviews for Superman/Batman: Apocalypse

    Pretty weird decision to make a movie with a female character in the lead, stock it chock full of female supporting roles, then title it "Superman/Batman", but okay. Guess I should just be glad it got made at all, especially way back in 2010. The film itself? It's alright, has that bizarre simplistic-yet-confusing combo that you'd think is such an oxymoron it'd be impossible to hit but superhero fare pretty frequently stumbles in to, but at least it's not completely paint by numbers.

    Not as good as the first Superman/Batman animated film but it was good to see Darkseid onscreen even if he's made weaker than I expected, The story was good but it focused too much on Supergirl as this film was kind of used as a origin story for her which maybe should of been done for her own animated movie and for for me it dragged at times, It had some pretty fun action scenes but that's all it has that the kids will like.

    In preparation for the upcoming Batman V Superman film, I've decided to revisit a few of each of the heroes' feature films, especially those where they come in direct conflict with one another. It's considered a direct sequel to 2009's Worlds Finest film, but in reality, it's its own entity. It's also not really a Superman & Batman film at all. With the story line directly focusing on the appearance of Supergirl and the inclusion of Wonder Woman and the Amazonians, it's almost like a mini Justice League film. If you're going in looking for a classic Batman & Superman story, this isn't it. But if you're looking for yet another solid entry in the DC Animated Universe, then I think there's enjoyment to be had here. Supergirl (Kara) enters the world in full Terminator glory and is discovered by none other than Batman. As him and Superman debate as to what they should do with her, Darkseid and his minions try to take things in their own hands. Wonder Woman believes Supergirl should be kept away from civilization until her powers are under control but Superman believes she should live with him as he teaches her the way of the world. Of course, Kara has her own idea of the life she should live. And that's really the basis the film goes by. Other than Batman and Superman both being in the film, it's not their story at all. The film does pick up however once they go to Darkseid's planet of Apocalypse itself after he kidnapped Kara. Darkseid's presence in this film is pretty much the exact representation I would hope the live action universe uses. He's calculating, manipulating, cool, calm, and collected. Throw in some omega beams and an unstoppable physical presence and you get DC's potentially best villain. Even though this film is entertaining and definitely satisfying by its end, there has to be some let down in the fact that it doesn't ever feel like a Batman and Superman film. It's one of my biggest fears of Batman V Superman. Keep the film even in tone and focus, and don't mislead your audience. If you do that, I don't think people will be disappointed. So with all that said, Superman/Batman Apocalypse is a decent entry in a distinguished line of incredible animated films, it's just unfortunate it doesn't live up to its predecessor. +Darkseid's presence +Well realized characters through voice work +Supergirl is handled correctly -But it's not a Superman/Batman film at all -A let down in some regards 7.7/10

    DC Universe presents an exciting and action packed comic crossover event in Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. When a kryptonite meteor shower hits Gotham it brings with it an escape pod carrying Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, who is being pursues by Darkseid to lead his legion of dark warriors. The voice talents of Tim Daly, Kevin Conroy, and Summer Glau lead the cast bring the characters to life. While the Superman and Batman crossover works well, the film tries for a trifecta by bringing in Wonder Woman; but the Wonder Woman aspects don't work and feels contrived. Yet, overall the story is solid and full of action and adventure. Superman/Batman: Apocalypse is a fun and entertaining animated feature that brings together some of DC's best characters.
