Superman: Unbound (2013)

“Thanks. If I knew I was gonna be abducted, I might have skipped the heels. ” – Lois Lane

Number of Times Seen – 1 (8 Mar 2018)

Brief Synopsis – Superman tries to stop the cybernetic creature Brainiac 5 who steals cities  and the knowledge of their people.

My Take on it – This is yet another film from the minds of DC/WB animation that I had yet to see and was quite interested in learning what it was all about.

This film does a wonderful job expanding the information that we know about Superman and his life and its all for the better because of that.

We get to understand more how much he cares for Earth and its people while still never forgetting where he came from which endears us even more to him.

I really enjoy the fact that these films are not limited to being just for kids and they add themes that are quite relevant even for adults without losing any amount of adventure and excitement while watching the story unfold.

This films deals with messages about family and home and they do them in a great way that continually pay off over and over again as the story moves along.

The characters are created in a way where they are bold in their actions and since their personalities are straight forward without a facade, we can see how that even helps them in life.

The voice cast is great with Matt Bomer, Stacy Katic, John Noble, Molly Quinn and Diedrich Bader all doing fine voice work.

Bottom Line – Another great DC/WB animated film that gives us so much more to love about Superman and his world. Love the way that these films are not limited to being made for kids and how they bring “adult” issues into the fray while still giving us engaging and enjoyable adventures for the characters.   This film does a great job giving its characters bold and staright forward personalities which helps them in their directions in life. Great voice cast led by Bomer, Nobel, Katic, Quinn and Bader. The message about home and family is quite strong here and it pays off throughout. Recommended!
