Superman vs The Elite Blu-Ray / DVD Review

Synopsis: The Elite, a team of super-powered antiheroes, is renowned for killing their enemies. Despite the acclaim and approval the Elite enjoy, Superman knows they are in the wrong, creating more harm than good by their methods. Tensions between them finally culminate in a mass showdown on Jupiter’s moons, when Superman is forced to prove that violence is never a positive.

Review: Superman vs. the Elite opens with this great Sex Pistols-esque Punk rock-retro Superman montage.  Its sets a great tone right off the bat.   I think that I benefit a lot from the Dc Universe films in that I haven't read a lot of the story arcs that they're based on and that makes them far more enjoyable for me personally.  I have no idea what is coming and I like it that way.

The focus in this film is the age-old comic book fan debate on whether heroes like Superman and Batman should keep capturing the same criminals, knowing full well they’ll break out of prison and kill again.  Superman, the ultimate boyscout that he is, refuses to kill.   Enter a motley crew of "superheroes" that are willing to get the job done!  This film explores some fantastic themes..the acting is great, the animation is great and the overall story is fantastic.  This one is an A+ to any fan of Superman, Dc Comics or just comic book themed characters in general!  This one is not for kids, beware the foul language and PG-13 rating!

Interest Range: Animation, Dc Comics
