Lex Luthor is president and there’s a huge Kryptonite meteor heading for Earth. He manipulates events to portray Superman as an enemy of Earth, and a hunt for him ensues. Some superheroes follow Luthor and try to track down the Man of Steel, but Batman stands by his friend’s side and tries to prove his innocence.
I really enjoy it when Superman and Batman team up, and I liked how the action scenes worked. They both had their own moments to shine and they worked together well. There were some cute jokes and the camaraderie really shone. The overarching threat of the meteor provided a steady threat that became more ominous as the film progressed, while Luthor was the main villain. One thing I didn’t really buy was how quickly everyone turned on Superman. The populous I can understand because it was a time of crisis and people panic, but the other heroes? I’m not so sure, yeah Luthor was president but I think Superman built up enough trust over the years to be given more leeway.
Apart from that it’s an enjoyable film and so far I haven’t been disappointed in any of the DC Animated movies.
