Incredible Disappointment

First, I would like to say that I read the original comics. I would also like to say that I didn't particularly like all the hub-bub afterwards with "The Reign of Supermen" and all that. So I was totally amped about a retelling of the story without that stuff. I also LOVED the few times Doomsday showed up in the JLU cartoon; he's one of the few Superman villains who present a challenge.

"Superman:Doomsday" is the title. I'm not sure why, seeing as how Doomsday has very little screen time. He is probably the biggest disappointment, with a severe case of "Oooh! Shiny!" syndrome. Superman can barely hold this behemoth's attention, because every time he sees a car or plane go by, he has to attack it. This is while Supes is beating the living tar out of him, so I had a little trouble with taking DDay seriously. I wanted the meat of the movie to be Supes' fight with Doomsday, not to start the movie out with it! The best part was over in 30 minutes! Another huge failing of the movie is the dialogue. Often it just feels silly. No joke: Luthor winds up screaming at one point "Who's Your Daddy?". There are no words to describe how ridiculous that is. Sadly, almost every time Luthor opens his mouth, some weird remark is coming out, sounding silly and vaguely scandalous. Lois's lines are just as bad; and to think that she hasn't figured out who Supes is EVEN THOUGH SHE IS SLEEPING WITH HIM is mind boggling.

The voice actors are so-so. Baldwin is fine, and while I wish he had put more effort in distinguishing Clark from Superman, I liked it. I still haven't decided whether or not I liked James Marsters role; they changed Lex so much that he needed a new voice, but I'm not sure Marsters fit the bill. Heche is awful. She is clearly not a voice actress by trade, and she doesn't seem to put much effort into trying.

I wanted more to this movie. I wanted seriousness and grittiness. Not mud wrestling and silliness! It just wasn't my cup of tea. They should've taken the movie and retooled it to fit in the Justice League Unlimited universe, where they were actually getting things done right.

This movie is silly. And disappointing. Stick to the Unlimited series, where things are taken a little more seriously and done with a little more polish and care.

Superman/Doomsday: What the actual fudge was that meant to be?

Where to begin?

Now I'm not a big comic book guy but over the years there have been certain story arcs and collections that I've adored and this was one of them. What I mean by "This" is The Death Of Superman/A World Without Superman/Return Of Superman which I consider to be an epic masterpiece.

I knew going into this that the story would have to be streamlined for it to fit into 75 minutes but I didn't expect this, I feel I should have.

This is NOT related to that at all, make no mistake the epic Superman vs Doomsday battle including countless other heroes does not happen and in fact Doomsday is in the first quarter of the film and that's it!

This is another story altogether regarding Luthor and a Superman clone and not any of those from the original story.

If I had never read the comic book I may have found this relatively entertaining but knowing the source material this is an embarassment.

Why even call it Superman/Doomsday if the latter is barely going to be in the film?

Fingers crossed DC don't decide to make Batman/Bane based on the Nightfall story as I'd imagine they'd do the same.

This is just a mess.

The Good:

Nope

The Bad:

Doomsday looks....off

Few of the voice cast are badly cast (All I can hear is Spike from Marsters)

Awful adaptation

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

It should have been called Superman/Luthor

This simply shouldn't have been made

Doomsday

I saw this movie 2 years back during my summer holidays and I have to say it was an incredibly awesome film with lots of action and adventure.

I have never read the comics but this is quite accurate to them I presume.

I am surprised this movie aired on Cartoon Network in the UK considering there were a few scenes like when Superman does Brain surgery in a barber shop on himself to remove a boom Lex put in this brain. He basically used his heat vision on a mirror to open his head and he uses tweezers to remove the boom from his brain which causes women in the shop to faint.

Another problem with this movie is there is too much going on at once.

Adam Baldwin, Adam Wylie, and James Masters were great as their roles.

Another disappointment with the movie was the character Doomsday himself. I honestly find it sad that he finally gets a movie focused on him and he was just a brainless brute who only growled, roared and grunted.

They could have cast someone like John DiMaggio, Kevin Micheal Richardson, Fred Tatashiore or even Dee Bradley Baker to voice him instead of just using machines.

But the fight scenes between Doomsday and evil Superman was amazing.

If you have read the comics you would enjoy this movie.
