Superman: Doomsday is a 2007 American direct-to-video animated superhero film, adapted from the DC Comics storyline "The Death of Superman" which focuses on the death and return of the superhero Superman.
This film is a fine example of padding. In fact, most of the film focuses on other characters than Superman.
It also escalates too quickly into other events such as Superman's death and then return.
Jimmy, a character that the film focuses on, is a pointless know-it-all character when in reality, he's a minor character.
Misleading title: The main villain is really Lex Luthor, not Doomsday.
Speaking of Doomsday, his design and appearance is horrible and overall weak.
After Superman dies, the film gets extremely boring and stays that way until Superman fights Dark Superman.
Dark Superman is a hypocritical "hero" who wants to save Metropolis, but yet commits numerous crimes that endanger the city even more.
Terrible dialogue. For instance, Lex Luthor says "Red and green are the colors of Christmas, and you're on the naughty list!"
The voice actors sound like they don't want to be in this movie.
