User Reviews


The Last Son Of Krypton was primarily an introduction before the Superman animated television series premiered. Therefore since you'd imagine this is an origins story, from Krypton for you to Smallville to Metropolis.

Sadly this is only an hour long that is certainly a lot of content to get into 60 minutes! Regardless they do a amazingly good job as do the voice actors who would go on to become regulars in the DC animated universe.

With an introduction to his rivalry with Lex Luthor to Braniacs part in his homeworlds demise this does break every box even if it does feel a tad in haste.

This feel good 60 minutes is important for fans of the animated television series and makes a good stand alone effort for fans from the characters as well.

Good job.

The great:

Malcolm McDowell

Origin history is well done

The Bad:

A lttle bit "Too" Warner Brothers


Things I Learnt Using this Movie:

Kryptonian dress feeling was awful

Colonel Sanders flies coach


This feature length video release is actually a re-cutting of the about three part pilot for the brand new superman series produced by Warner Bros. using mostly Japanese people animation talent. The start re-tells the familiar source story of the Last Son of Krypton, while introducing two classic DC villains (Brainiac and Lex Luthor) and giving us some sort of feisty new Lois Isle.

The look very 50s comedian bookish and kind of science fiction retro. Metropolis looks like precisely what TV and the movies were predicting for the year 2000: an urban landscape of giant buildings, elevated highways, broadband commuter trains, all extremely ultra-modern and glossy, however clean, efficient and recognizable. The color palette is very bright and full of primary shades, giving the cartoon any Sunday supplement feel. My biggest complaint relates to a rather clumsy look to the character computer animation, and even this is really small. It's a big step up via Superfriends.

The show features a good look, great tales and lots of superhero action, and Clark Kent himself (as voiced by Tim Daly) is wryly amusing and also stubbornly heroic in the face of sometimes tough choices. I watched this pilot and agreed upon on for the run from the show. Recommended.
