    Superman/Batman didnt seem as well rounded as director Lauren Montgomerys Wonder Woman, which made great use of humor and action, and was a prime origin story. Speaking of origin stories, I hear Montgomery is working on Batman: Year One. Exciting! Hopefully that turns out to be a little more intriguing than Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. It honestly baffles me how a comic book film could turn out to be sub-par. Everything was laid out already: dialog, action, story board. It should have been fool proof. It was still watch-able, but it wasnt first rate. Read Full Review

    In the end, I was left with a completely mixed reaction to this DVD. I liked and disliked this movie in pretty much equal parts. We've seen better original DVDs from both DC and Marvel. Read Full Review

    I dont hate the look, but I dont much care for it either--which mirrors my reaction to this movie as a whole. Read Full Review

    Perhaps if this had been an adaptation of a better comic book, the quality of the source material could have shone through such a bland, run-of-the-mill approach. In reality, though, Jeph Joebs original story was adequate at best, and Apocalypse could have used a much greater creative spark than anyone involved managed to muster. Read Full Review
