Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Proof that Superman can never die, and that the Justice League may be immortal as well, are highlights of this action-packed sequel with a profusion of heroes and villains to follow. Animation, performances, and production are all top-notch, in keeping with director Sam Liu's high standards. Lois Lane's prominent role in the story, including her grief at the film's opening and resurgent joy at the end, add an emotional component to the usual mayhem.

Fans of the DC Animated Universe should have no trouble keeping up with the onslaught of characters in Reign of the Supermen. Most are familiar heroes or recurring baddies, so the appearance of four new faux "supermen" will simply add to the suspense. "Newbies," however, may be lost early on.
