WARNING : CONTAINS SPOILERS!!
All Star Superman all star sucks. Do not waste your money on this piece of crap. I’ve been a fan of the recent Direct to DVD DC movies (Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, etc.) , but this movie was horrible. The story was all over the place, and cluttered with too many characters that were underdeveloped and underused. It felt like they tried to cram as much as they could into 76 minutes and didn’t care if it worked. 10 minutes into this movie and I was ready for it it end.
It starts of with Superman being poisoned from too much radiation from the Sun. So then the movie becomes a sort of bad bucket list. He exposes his secret identity to Lois Lane, then whisk her off to his Fortress of Solitude where he gives her a serum that grants her super powers for a day. The whole scene felt like one of those goofy Superman stories from the 50’s.
The movie gets even more convoluted with the introduction of Samson and Atlas fighting for Lois Lane’s affection, then New Kryptonians pop up to take over the world (who get like five minutes of screen time before almost dying). Last, we shift to Lex Luthors ultimate evil plan. Which ends with a scene straight of some new age hippie book, with Lex spouting of about how everything in the universe is connected and Superman is part of that connection. If I had Superman’s powers I would turn back time to reclaim the hour and a half of my life I wasted on this movie.
