    Superman/Batman: Apocalypse

    ★★★★½

    This was an excellent filmic adaptation of the then-recent 'Superman/Batman: Supergirl' graphic novel. Michael Turner's remarkable artwork on the page was adapted extremely well here. The fighting scenes are second-to-none, and some of the very best choreographed and thought-out in an animated film I have seen. Plus, one gets a good sense of emotionality: both what FINALLY having birth family means to Superman, and the range of thoughts running through a typical teenage girl's head, one that's in a strange…

A much better watching experience than its unfortunate live-action counterpart of that same year. Highly recommended, both for Green Lantern aficionados (such as myself) and enthusiasts of either animated films or comic-book movies in general.

But to reach such heights and to have such ambition--as well as undeniable talent--is…

    Next to 'Carlito's Way' and 'Bad Lieutenant', this is my very favourite movie of the 90's. Outstanding, raw, in-your-face cinema. Anyone that tries to tells you Michael Mann isn't a director worthy of your attention obviously hasn't seen either this or 'Thief'--two of the greatest works of American contemporary (last 35 years) cinema. It's simply THAT good.
