User Reviews


The Last Son Of Krypton was essentially an introduction before the Superman super-hero television series premiered. Therefore because you'd imagine this is an origins story, from Krypton to be able to Smallville to Metropolis.

Regretfully this is only an hour long which is a lot of content to get into 60 minutes! Regardless they do a surprisingly good job as do the speech actors who would go on to be regulars in the DC computer animated universe.

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

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

Good job.

The favorable:

Malcolm McDowell

Origin account is well done

The Bad:

A little "Too" Warner Brothers

In haste

Things I Learnt Out of this Movie:

Kryptonian dress feeling was awful

Colonel Sanders flies coach


This kind of feature length video discharge 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 preliminary re-tells the familiar origins story of the Last Son of Krypton, while introducing two classic DC villains (Brainiac and Lex Luthor) and giving us the feisty new Lois Street.

The look very 50s comic bookish and kind of sci-fi retro. Metropolis looks like just what TV and the movies have been predicting for the year 2000: an urban landscape of big buildings, elevated highways, high speed commuter trains, all extremely ultra-modern and glossy, and yet clean, efficient and common. The color palette is very brilliant and full of primary colorings, giving the cartoon any Sunday supplement feel. The biggest complaint relates to a rather clumsy look to the character animation, and even this is really slight. It's a big step up coming from Superfriends.

The show includes a good look, great testimonies and lots of superhero action, as well as Clark Kent himself (as voiced by Tim Daly) is wryly amusing and stubbornly heroic in the face of once in a while tough choices. I observed this pilot and signed on for the run on the show. Recommended.
