Review of Superman - Man of Tomorrow by Christopher Pattison
DC’s animated catalogue has seen some of the studio's most enjoyable output. Whilst Superman has not reached the popularity of his dark and gritty counterpart ‘Batman’ on the big screen in recent years, the animated films released have been quite enjoyable. ‘Superman - Man of Tomorrow’ follows the Daily Planet intern Clark Kent who takes learning-on-the-job to new extremes when antihero ‘Lobo’ and Parasite set their sights on Metropolis, it is up to Clark and his alter ego Superman to save the day. With a fun premise like this and some dazzling visuals, ‘Superman - Man of Tomorrow’ was an absolute treat.
As mentioned, I am a DC animation film fan. The Batman films for the most part have been great, bringing iconic Batman mythology to life in a fun, unique and engaging way. This film brings Lobo to the big screen, a fan favourite among superhero fans. Lobo proves to be a great adversary to Superman, as he is a little more violent than most of the characters Superman normally fights. Parasite is also a great villain too, the animation for this character is quite impressive with the purple skin of the creature really standing out on Blu-Ray. The action sequences are a lot of fun. Limited by budget, these films always manage to make these larger than life action sequences feel authentic and feel like they have leapt off the comic book page onto the screen. These films never feel restricted and that is a huge credit to the DC animation team.
‘Superman - man of Tomorrow’ was a lot of fun. Filled with great references to the comic books in which the story is based on and some fun and exciting action sequences. This one is worth your time if you are starved for now superhero content or if you just want a fun animated adventure. I am giving ‘Superman - Man of Tomorrow’ a 7/10. Pick-up this one on Blu-Ray or DVD today from your local Sanity or Online!

Review of Superman: Man of Tomorrow by Peter Walkden
The film follows Clark Kent (aka Superman) who is working for the Daily Planet as an intern. Clark spends his day getting coffee and doing errands for his co-workers. He works with Lois Lane one day hopes to work on a big scoop.
This instalment of Superman here feels more like a new origin story within the DC Universe. This film is set before Clark even discovers the famous costume. It is evident that Clark is still finding himself, his powers, and understanding his past. Each day Clark is doing his best just trying blend in and avoid standing out. When Clark Kent sees people in trouble, he always tries to save them undetected, but no matter what, Clark ends up finding himself being a hot topic in the news.
But soon, Clark will be dealing with many villains and many personal issues around him. While trying to keep his identity hidden, Clark is tracked down by an outer space bounty hunter named Lobo. Lobo knows lots about Clark and even knows what kind of race he is. Lobo is also aware of what happened to Clark's race and his homeworld more than Clark himself. But this bounty hunter is a threat to Earth, and Lobo's mission is to simply destroy.
The animation of Superman: Man of Tomorrow is clean and straightforward. While this style of animation isn't anything new and it reminded me of cartoons I used to watch when I was younger, I still found this style of rather enjoyable, and it certainly suits this comic book world. The voice work is also great, and the film's plot is easily the most remarkable element in this film.
Overall, this film will undoubtedly be pleasing to DC fans. It shares a new story which is quite a standout in Superman's journey. While the animation feels familiar, I still enjoyed this feature and the same can be said for the voice work here. This instalment delivered what I expected- some rather enjoyable brainless entertainment about one of the greatest superheroes in the DC Universe.
