Superman vs. The Elite
I love these DC animated films! This one tells the story of Superman fighting the anti-hero group called The Elite. To be honest, the only member of the team I was familiar with was Manchester Black, and I only had a hazy idea that he had kidnapped Lois Lane at some point (don't worry, that's not a spoiler). But the characters on the team were actually a lot of fun to watch, even if they don't get much of an intro.
Pros: This is a fun movie with great action scenes. The animation is great, and the plot is not your average good-guy-vs.-bad-guy story.
Cons: I can't vouch for the family-friendliness 100%. There are several curse words used, and some sexual insinuations. Other than that it was clean, but I wouldn't let a young child watch this film.
Overall, this follows in the pattern of the previous DC animated films; fun, action-packed, and enjoyable. You should definitely give this a try if you enjoy Superman movies or the other DC animated films.
Bottom line: 3.5/5
