User Reviews


The Last Boy Of Krypton was primarily an introduction before the Superman cartoon television series premiered. Therefore since you'd imagine this is an foundation story, from Krypton in order to Smallville to Metropolis.

Sadly this is only an hour long which is a lot of content to get into 1 hr! Regardless they do a astonishingly good job as do the speech actors who would go on to become regulars in the DC super-hero universe.

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

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

Good job.

The great:

Malcolm McDowell

Origin history is well done

The Bad:

A little "Too" Warner Brothers


Things I Learnt Using this Movie:

Kryptonian dress sense was awful

Colonel Sanders flies coach


This kind of feature length video release is actually a re-cutting of the about three part pilot for the new superman series produced by Warner Bros. using mostly Japanese animation talent. The pilot 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 a feisty new Lois Lane.

The look very 50s amusing bookish and kind of sci-fi retro. Metropolis looks like what TV and the movies have been predicting for the year 2000: an urban landscape of huge buildings, elevated highways, top speed commuter trains, all really ultra-modern and glossy, but clean, efficient and acquainted. The color palette is very vibrant and full of primary colorings, giving the cartoon any Sunday supplement feel. My biggest complaint relates to a rather clumsy look to the character movement, and even this is really slight. It's a big step up through Superfriends.

The show carries a good look, great reports and lots of superhero action, and also Clark Kent himself (as voiced by Tim Daly) is wryly amusing along with stubbornly heroic in the face of occasionally tough choices. I watched this pilot and authorized on for the run in the show. Recommended.
