latest Warner Bros DC Comics movie has arrived on DVD and Blu-ray which
features two of the world's most iconic characters together, Superman
Based on the popular comic
written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Ed McGuiness, Superman Batman: Public
Enemies also incorporates a wide variety of characters from the DC
Universe into the story that include Power Girl, Captain Atom and even Shazam. Of
course, there are a plethora of villains behind this movie as well and
the theme revolves around Lex Luthor... more specifically President Lex
Luthor who frames Superman for the death of a super villain.
course it didn't help that Superman never sided with the newly elected
president of the United States but with Batman siding with Superman, both heroes are
proclaimed Public Enemies and to compound the situation, not only do the
villains want justice but also the super heroes of Earth which creates a
huge game of cat and mouse.
The story is well written and does
pay homage to the original comicbook but the highlight of this movie for
me was the interaction with other DC Characters such as Power Girl or
the hot headed Captain Atom. Of course it helps that the animation looks
almost identical to Ed McGuiness.
All the characters are well voiced,
especially Batman who is played by Kevin Conroy and Tim Daly who plays Superman
and have played the voices of these characters before. As
story is rated M15+, this can also be watched by adults who will also enjoy
this intriguing story of a world gone mad.
On Blu-ray, the video quality is extremely sharp
with a great colour palette and strong levels of black with no
artifacting at all. Match that with Dolby Digital 5.1
and you have a cinematic superhero treat that must be watched on the big
screen to be truly enjoyed. Of course, the Blu-ray version
features a truckload of special features such about the characters,
what's happening in the DC Universe and some great interviews.
