Trivia

Though the film closely follows the original comic book storyline re-introducing the Supergirl character, there are three scenes omitted from the film. The first depicts a battle between Batman and Artemis, which occurs in the park when the Amazons attempt to kidnap Kara from Superman. In the battle Artemis is close to winning a hand-to-hand fight with Batman. Before being defeated Batman resorts to using a dart gun on Artemis in order to gain the upper hand. The second scene that is skipped is the fight between SPOILER: Superman and Supergirl. In this fight instead of using a 'clap' sound wave attack Superman takes a Kryptonite ring out of his belt buckle and puts it on to harm Kara, although harming himself in the process. The third omitted scene depicts Wonder Woman as being involved in defending Kara from Darkseid on the Kent farm near the end of the film. Instead of Darksied being sent into space, in the original comic he is duped into believing his Omega Beams had destroyed Kara and Superman fights with him while dragging Darkseid through space in anger before trapping Darkseid in the source wall which is located at the end of the universe.

Goofs

In the final battle, Darkseid Omega Beams Kara into unconsciousness. As he leaves her, she's lying face-up. But when Superman sees her, she's lying face-down. See more »

Quotes

Kara: I think I'm gonna like it here.
Clark Kent: It can be a little quiet.
Kara: Kal, I've been chased, shot at, kidnapped, beaten up, had my mind controlled and I broke a nail. I'm ready for a little quiet.
Clark Kent: If I know my mother, she'll have some her famous apple pie waiting. You okay?
Kara: Little nervous, I guess. It's just, you have this life. You can be Clark, or Kal-El, or Superman. Even a son. Who am I going to be?
Clark Kent: I can't answer that, Kara. Only you can. Whatever you decide, I'll be there for you. I promise.

Pretty decent
24 May 2011 | by trcky1See all my reviews

Nice teamup of Superman & Batman vs Apocalypse. The plot is OK, the action scenes are well-written, and the characters are well-voiced and their actions stay true to their...well, their characters. Superman is the well-meaning boy scout, Batman is the dark, gritty enforcer. The animation is decent for American classic cartoon animation. The best new-school animation I've seen of American productions is the motion-comics style presented in The Astonishing X-men and Iron Man Extremis.

The only negative stuff was a little cheesy dialogue and a flat Summer Glau. Otherwise, pretty decent pace to the story and action, and a good finish.
