Movie Review – Superman/Batman: Public Enemies (2009)

Director: Sam Liu

Stars: Clancy Brown, Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly, Xander Berkeley, Corey Burton, Allison Mack, John C. McGinley, LeVar Burton

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.

  1. Been enjoying your run-through of these DC animated movies – I’ve only watched one, The Flashpoint Paradox I think it was, but good to know they have some good stuff to offer!
