If this had been the first DC feature I'd seen, I'd call it superb. Sadly, against Wonder Woman and Batman: Under the Red Hood this title falls short. The main problem is that it that it has too much on its plate for its alotted running time. An extra five minutes would have been enough to focus better on the individual plot strands: Kara's coming of age; her time with Wonder Woman; and Darkseid's machinations. As it stands, the story races a bit too fast and I also didn't find the character designs all that appealing (but then again I wasn't all that crazy over Michael Turner's work).
But as always, there's violence aplenty. The first scene at Apocalypse features one of the best beatdowns I've seen animated, and the epic final brawl at the Kent farm by itself makes this movie worth getting. The problem is that previously the action in DC's titles helped to enhance an already good package, but here it must rescue a package that would otherwise have been subpar. Not one of Warner's best then
