Superman/Batman: Public Enemies Review

Fans of the storyline will not be disappointed. The movie follows the core of the plot almost word or word. When I say core, I mean that some things had to be trimmed down for the movie. The subplot with the Kingdom Come Superman was obviously taken out as well as the storm the White House scene with Superboy, Steel, Supergirl, Batgirl, Robin, and Nightwing.

In terms of animation, the overall designs of the characters were faithful to Ed McGuinness' style. This was very pleasing to my eyes. While the movie was rated PG-13, it did not push the boundaries of said rating as did previous DC animated features (Green Lantern: First Flight, Superman: Doomsday, Batman: Gotham Knight...). It was for the most part pretty tame.

Public Enemies was pretty much an hour long fight scene with Superman and Batman kicking everyone's butt. It was awesome. It was great seeing all these characters from the DCU that have never been animated before. It was even greater to see Supes and Bats punch them in their faces.

4.5/5 (Go Buy it!)
