Reign of the Supermen is an animated superhero film that follows The Death of Superman. The film was directed by Sam Liu and was written by Tim Sheridan and Tim Krieg. Some of the cast lending their vocal talents here are Jerry O’Connell, Rebecca Romijn, Jason O’Mara, Rainn Wilson, Rosario Dawson, Tony Todd, and all sorts of other Hollywood folks.
So the film starts off six months after Superman died at the hands of the creature known as Doomsday. Metropolis is suddenly besieged by other supposed alternative versions of Superman. Superman’s remains are missing, so who knows if one of the four latest visitors is the genuine article? Except it won’t be that simple. In the meantime, another alien power is preparing to launch a new attack on Metropolis. The Justice League is there doing their best to make up for the loss of their most powerful member, but they may have further tragedy to endure.
So this is based on the events in the comic series that was written around 1993 or thereabouts. It’s a comic book movie, and Superman isn’t exactly my favorite superhero. This was still pretty entertaining but nothing I find too inspiring visit. Some of the fight scenes felt a little too dragged out. The acting was fin. The artistry in the animation was acceptable, although I am no expert there. The script was not terrible, but it also was not all that memorable.
The movie works well enough as an animated superhero movie that just retells a saga that was already well known to the readers of the comic books. In the end, it was fairly entertaining but nothing to write home about. It’s really only barely worthwhile to compose a blog over.
