It's an interesting story with Lex Luthor seizing ultimate power that prevents even Superman from coming near him. The action is hard-hitting, brutal and frequent, with even a death or two happening along the way. But there are some negatives. Firstly it lacks the emotional impact of DC's best animation works like Batman: Mask of the Phantasm or Superman: Doomsday that also delved into how the heroes lived their lives when the capes came off. Here the two come across as a wrestling tag team, who are meant to clobber the opposition and not much else. Also the pacing. The first act sets up the story nicely, the middle act maintains the momentum, but the final act, where things go all Gundam and happen too quickly, seems way out of place and spoils the proceedings somewhat. It's still a good production, but DC has produced better
