I've just watched Superman/Batman Apocolypse and before I start I would like to say that I went into this biased. I am a BIG fan of Michael Turners' art and I am really glad I was able to experience this storyline that he put so much effort into. I will be going out and buying the original storyline later, for now I will focus on the movie. The movie was just brilliant. The best DC universe movie I have seen so far (I haven't seen all of them). Now I do believe that this movie may have been a much better experience for females/ it had a triad of strong female characters, Supergirl, who of course was the main focus of the movie, Wonder Woman, who was a string female character and showed genuine emotion for Kara Zor-el and Big Barda, the last strong female character (but not the only ones) I really enjoyed her character and she was a formidable warrior and I really enjoyed her character. These three characters were portrayed wonderfully and I really enjoyed it.
The introduction to Supergirl was captivating; her fear really came across in her first moments on Earth. Her reaction to superman was very beautiful, like someone meeting their saviour, imagine being stuck, confused, scared, not able to communicate or understand and suddenly someone saves you and can understand you, the movie portrays this beautiful moment perfectly. The movie covered her transition from a scared child to a super heroine, with some uniquely human experiences, such as Kara discovering shopping and objecting to everyone deciding her life for her.
I can't comment on story accuracy, I haven't read the story, but I can comment on art accuracy. I know that the producers made an effort to keep the Michael Turner art style and it really comes through beautifully. It does Michael Turner justice.
Overall the movie comes together flawlessly and the storyline and execution is brilliant. This is a movie to add to the collection and I would recommend it to anyone, including non-comic book fans.
