The Death Of Superman Review: 5 Ups & 6 Downs


6. The Totally Mediocre Animation

The Death Of Superman
Warner Bros.

A lacklustre, embarrassingly low quality of animation has been an unfortunate trend in most recent DC Universe animated movies, save perhaps for Batman Ninja, and The Death of Superman is sadly no different.

The vast majority of the movie's scenes, be they fully-blown action sequences or mere dialogues, feel churned out in a rush and without sufficient tools to make them look suitably cinematic and, well, heroic.

The backgrounds are frequently recycled and the gaudy mix of traditional 2D animation and 3D CGI is distractingly bad at times. Fire effects, which effectively look like low-quality looping GIFs, are especially noticeable by their cheapness.

Sadly until these animated movies stop pulling in good business for Warner Bros., they presumably won't see any reason to actually inject more cash into them.
