Yeah, I need to get this.
All-Star Superman may just be the best DCU animated original movie to date. At the very least, it's the best Superman feature Timm and his team have put together. It's not only a fantastically faithful adaptation of Morrison and Quitely's 12-issue comic run, it's a riveting reinvention of Superman and his mythos, a fun but poignant look at a decidedly human superhuman, and a gripping, episodic epic all around. I doubt everyone will enjoy it as much as I did, but fans of Morrison and Quitely's comic, Superman aficionados and filmfans without any Super-baggage will be enamored. Warner's Blu-ray release makes purchasing the flick that much easier. While its video encode isn't without the usual flaws, it offers a fairly impressive image (that handily bests its DVD cousin), an excellent DTS-HD Master Audio surround track and a strong selection of top-drawer special features. DCU animation junkies shouldn't hesitate, casual superhero fans should give it serious consideration and even Superman's most ardent critics should add it to their rental queue. All-Star Superman delivers.
