To start off I just wanna say how much of a fan I am of the new DC
comics animated movies that have been coming out over the past few
years. DC comics hasn't been pulling any punches when it comes to their
animated movies. The Art work, the voice acting, and the writing are all top notch.
Superman/Batman: Public Enemies is one of the more recent DC
Animated movies. The story centers on an America in a downward Spiral.Much like real world America, our economy is in shambles, people are losing their homes, and The national guard are on alert. And to top it all off while the American people are at their weakest, Lex Luthor has decided to seiez power in the United States by running and ultimately winning the presidency. Luthor's first act as president is to recruit super heroes to fight on his and the countries behalf. Most notably
Capton Atom, Black Vulcan, and Power Girl. After a short time it reviled that there is a meteor the size of Texas head for the earth. And to make matters worse the Meteor is made of pure Krytonite. Luthor goes on to say to the world that he has the meteor problem under control, but he wants to meet with Superman anyway. During the meeting Luthor Desides to bring Metallo as a precautionary measure. The resulting battle puts Superman and Batman on the run. And with a little black mail on Luthor's part Our heroes are now wanted for the murder of
Metallo. Luthor then goes on to put a one billion dollar bounty on their heads.
Now anyone who knows the villains of the DC universe knows they are
for the most part driven by greed. Needless to say a small army of super villains come out of the wood works to take down the man of
steel. Not since the days of the Superman/Batman adventures on the WB has their team up been so much fun to watch. This story was plucked from the pages of Jeph Loeb's Public enemies story arc from the comic
book series Superman/Batman (issues #1-6). There were changes made to the story line by writer Stan Berkowitz. Who's pen you might remember from shows like Spiderman, Superman, Batman Beyond, and Justice league.
Berkowitz deserves all of the credit when it comes to the writing.
He wrote a story that incorporates all the best things in Loeb's Story arc and cuts or finds ways around parts of the story that weren't
really necessary for the movie. Coming from someone who read the comics
and seen the movie (like 20 times), I can tell you the changes to the story were minute and ultimately didn't even matter. Since this is a one Shot
movie and the comic was and still is an ongoing story.
Alot of the people i have talked to about this movie only really
have one complaint. And that's the artwork. I personally had a problem with how bulky the characters looked. But i was able to let it go this
time. The look of the characters worked really well when the action started to pick up. Especially when our heroes were taking on the army of super villains. The action was enough to carry the movie for me.
I've always loved the big action the TV shows had to offer. So this was a very fun movie for me to watch.
All and all this movie is a full price buy. Everything from the
best voice actors in the biz to the high flying action to the great writing was well worth the money i dropped on the DVD. Pick this one up
guys, Support DC animated movies. There is much more to come. And i am really looking forward to the next few years of movies. Thanks for reading and don't forget to comment.
Keep On Reading Comics!!!!!
