Trivia

In the scene where Superman and Wonder Woman first arrive at Big Barda's home, Barda jokingly says to Wonder Woman, "You didn't, like, leave an invisible jet in the driveway, did you?". This line pays homage to the previous versions of Wonder Woman (pre 1980s) in which she piloted an invisible jet to fly around, instead of her own physical ability. See more »

Quotes

Superman: [reading Zor-El's message] "This vessel carries my daughter, Kara Zor-El, from the now dead planet Krypton. Treat her as you would your own child. She will prove a treasure for your world."
Batman: Treasure. You're sure of the translation?
Superman: It says treasure. Not terror, not trouble. Always the cynic. You can't help yourself, can you?
Batman: You know those tests I was running? Her cellular structure is a shade more dense than yours. She metabolizes sunlight more efficiently. It could be her youth. It could be ...

"Bring me the girl who fell out of the sky..."
12 July 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Good follow-up to Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. As with that movie, this is adapted from a comic book story written by Jeph Loeb. The story introduces Superman's cousin, Kara Zor-El (aka Supergirl). Not long after she arrives on Earth, Kara is kidnapped by the evil Darkseid. Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman must travel to the planet Apokolips to rescue her before Darkseid can brainwash her into becoming one of his Furies.

Enjoyable and fun, with some pretty intense action scenes. The dialogue and characterizations are good. Love the voicework from old pros Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly, Susan Eisenberg, and Ed Asner. Summer Glau does a great job as Supergirl. Andre Braugher's Darkseid is unimpressive. Nice music and animation. The story is a little rushed and probably could've used more build-up before all of the Apokolips stuff, which is the weakest part of the movie. The action is exciting, particularly the climactic fight scene. It probably plays better to fans than people unfamiliar with these characters' histories but I don't think casual viewers will be completely lost. There's enough to enjoy that I doubt you'll regret trying it out.
