all Star Superman Blu-ray DVD Combo
Superman, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor
Directed by Sam Liu
Warner Home Entertainment 2011

All Star Superman Blu-ray DVD combo is an 86 minute animated Superman story. Fans of the DC franchise will be quite entertained by this latest adventure. Casual fans will be a bit more critical of the very episodic story with quite a few plot holes but they too are going to go along willingly for this fun animated feature.

All Star Superman does require viewers to be familiar with the most recent superman mytharc. Lex Luthor arranges a disaster to a space shuttle that forces Superman to dive into the sun. This accelerates his cell deterioration so he only has a few weeks to live. This al happens in the first few minutes and the explanation is presented well enough you can buy it.

Since his days are numbered Superman tells Lois Lane he is Clark Kent, brings her to the Fortress of Solitude, gives her superpowers for 24 hours, and fights lizards, Samson, and Atlas. This is just the first twenty or so minutes of All Star Superman.

This is followed by a two-eyed, no-horned, purple people eater, a couple of baddies from Krypton, a computer powered rogue sun, Nashtalthia Luthor, and Lex Luthor another time.

The story here is not much but this Blu-ray does entertain.

Special features for All-Star Superman Blu-ray DVD combo are Sneak Peek at Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, the next DC Universe Animated Original PG Movie; Featurette: "Superman Now"; Two bonus episodes from Superman: The Animated Series handpicked by Bruce Timm; Featurette: "Incubating the Idea" - A conversation with Grant Morrison; Audio Commentary: Bruce Timm and Grant Morrison; All-Star Superman Virtual Comic Book
