Weak doesn't even begin to describe it. Putting the death of Superman on film-a straight adaptation of the material-would have been majestic. The movie ended up with none of the gravitas, the emotion, the heartbreak, the battle between two titans.
Sure, the story had to be truncated a bit to fit a manageable running time, but the result was absolutely cringeworthy.
I agree that it's been the best of the post-DCAU TV series, but none of the 3 so far have impressed me too much.
I just don't understand why Timm & company decided to jettison their voice actors & the animated style from the TV series when they moved to feature length. :frowning: They could have really taken that to the next level.
These films are just not working well so far. Gotham Knights was just a mess. Doomsday had some good points, but as others have said, they really didn't respect the source material.
