Superman/Batman: Public Enemies DTV

Fist of teh Internets.
I wouldn't mind DC doing an entire series of DTV films based on the Superman/Batman comics by Loeb.

Public Enemies, Supergirl, and Absolute Power were all solid entertaining stories. Almost evertything after that was all junk.

What about the chibi-dc universe one?

Cool. I really enjoyed Public Enemies. Nothing great, but an entertaining read and I like McGuinness's art. It's a lot better than what Loeb is putting out now too.

I'm hoping they flesh out the "Metallo killed Batman's parents" plot thread.

While it was obviously a red herring, it was the most interesting thing I saw in the story and I felt it was completely wasted. Most likely because I'm bored of "OH NOES WILL SUPERMAN CROSS THE LINE AND GO BAD" stories.

I did like Public Enemies and am looking forward to this, though.
 

thee great one

It was suspected he did, but in the story they said he didn't.

Why are Metallo and Superman fighting?

Why is Metallo forming a gun? How does that even work?

Why, when they're safe in the grave, doesn't Batman remove the bullet?

Superman and Batman are gayer than TOP GUN.

I like Lex saying the meteorite makes Superman insane.

Power Girl's eyes are HUGE... she looks like a PIGEON.

Major Force and Captain Atom look alike. Clark and Bruce look alike. I want different faces plx.

"What took you so long?" "I honestly don't think you'd understand." "Lois? ... You're right." - GAYER THAN TOP GUN

and then RIGHT away(!!)
"You didn't need to use the wire. I could've carried you." "Between you and me? I hate that." - EVERYTHING THEY SAY IS DRENCHED IN SWEAT AND TOWEL-WHIPS

The shrieking banshee woman's scream sound effects is very good

Okay... I understand that for a billion dollars, any villain will go after Supes. And i get that this is a cool way to have any villain show up in the story. But MONGUL? He's an alien warlord. Not only would it be beneath him to go bounty hunting for a HUMAN, but for DOLLARS? What the hell does he care? HE HAS A PLANET.

... and Superman even ASKS him. So even the WRITERS know this is dumb. WHY IS HE THERE?

Oh... mind control. *sigh* Grodd. *double sigh* THIS ONLY RAISES MORE QUESTIONS. HOW DID GRODD MIND CONTROL MONGUL. ISN'T HE SUPPOSED TO BE A BAD ***?

The... mystery of who killed Metallo. It was quite obvious it was Atom or Force. Is that the reason these two IDENTICAL characters are there? So we can't tell? WHY SHOULD I EVEN CARE?

This is so stupid - why not have Superman and Batman actually DO something the others would be pissed off about? This has less substance than the two waking up in an alternate world where they're the biggest villains ever and all the other heroes are still heroes. In fact, that would be cooler. This is so painfully bad. It's just random guest star fight scenes throughout the DCU. It's just one random encounter after another, with barely anything linking them. This is so stupid, I'm going to have a brain-freeze all day. (Update - I did have a brain-freeze and could get nothing done all day it was THAT stupid.)

Oh, and Lex Luthor's just crazy. Just as well, there may have been an interesting tension as Lex is actually a good president, but phew, he's just ****ing bat**** insane for no reason. If he wanted humanity to die in chaotic meteor fire, why did he FIX THE ECONOMY AND SOLVE ALL THE WORLD CRISES? Wouldn't it have been easier to make sure the meteor killed everyone if they were all rioting in the streets? Imagine if Batman (he's a detective don't you know), during huge full scale riots and the build up to WW3, realises that Lex Luthor is purposely creating these events to distract people so no one will notice the meteor until its too late? That would be bat**** insane, but it would WORK.

I do like how they set up Luthor was taking venom with the little linger they had on Bane as he lay unconscious on the floor. Nice touch.

Where's the rest of the planet? A meteorite is heading towards Earth. Why is no one mentioning what China or Russia or England is up to? OR DOES LOEB THINK THAT AMERICA IS THE ONLY COUNTRY ON EARTH?

... why is Batman's plane in Luthor's house?

... why doesn't Superman just microwave Luthor's head? Not to death, understand, but enough to make him throw up?

... why would a rocket have a cockpit? The Super-Bat rocket. It's not a space ship. It's a ROCKET. It's a missile. Why does it have a cockpit for a pilot?

Batman should've smiled when he said 'goodbye'.

So the climax is Superman beats up a man in a suit while Batman takes down a kryptonite meteor? Wouldn't it just be BETTER if it was the other way round? You've got a flying, venom-enhanced power suit Luthor fighting Batman, while Superman races to take out a kryptonite meteor CARRYING A SUPER-BAT ROCKET that he'll throw into it... 0/10. See me after class.

Actually, 1/10. For having Conroy, Daly, Brown, and Pounder reprise their roles.

So Batman and Superman are all hand-shakey and happy... and then Lois shows up. So Batman sulks and runs away I ASSUME TO CRY AND LISTEN TO QUEEN.

Terrible, pointless, plotless waste of my time. If I had rented it instead of watching it online I would have asked for my money back.

I'm also glad I caught this online... Hands-Down the worst DTV that they've released so-far... No intention of picking this up anytime soon, and if I do, it'll only be because I am a stupid completist and might want to own all of these...

The most interesting parts were the credits. (But seriously, kudos to those credits).

Didn't **** any of those *****es
The only one who looked good was Batman.

You know when I first read, I thought it said "The only good thing in the movie was Batman." and my mind automatically thought "Well Duh! Batman is always awesome"

So I think for now on when ever I need to describe a movie I don't like I will just say, "The only good thing in the movie was Batman."

I started watching this and fell asleep about the time that Batman and Superman fought Shazam and whoever else. It was pretty mediocre in every possible way. I'm disappointed because usually DC Animation is quite good. But, I guess I shouldn't have expected much coming from a translation of a Loeb story.

At least there wasn't homoerotic Batman/Superman voice-overs talking about how much they respect and love each other.

I completely forgot to mention the credits. Hands down, the best part of the movie.

And I actually got pretty excited when I saw CCH Pounder's name in the opening credits because, having not read the source material, I had no idea Waller was in this movie. Of course that was before I saw the gullible walrus in a suit they tried to pass off as Waller and my excitement dissipated.

Dude.

Could you resist the raw animal charm of Clancy Brown as Lex Luthor? Surely the fact that she didn't strip down and sink to her knees the first scene that included both of them is a show of superhuman psychological strength.

Plus, that was the hottest on-screen kiss of the year.
