| A great experience
As an avid reader of comics, I have a huge respect for the brilliant author Jack Kirby (1917-1994), whose work for Marvel produced some of the most memorable characters and stories from sequential art.However, even though it may sound heretic, I do not feel the same love for the complex mythologies Kirby created to DC Comics.I honestly never swallowed the stories about the "New Gods", because I found the characters not to be very well developed, not to mention that the stories were confusing.So, I started watching Superman/Batman: Apocalypse with some mistrust, because big part of the graphic novel it is inspired on (a compilation of the title Superman/Batman) has some similarities with the work Kirby made to DC Comics.To my surprise, screenwriter Tab Murphy made an excellent work at tuning the narrative and compressing the action in order to bring a dynamic, tremendously entertaining and even deep film experience.

The main target from Superman/Batman: Apocalypse are the comic readers, so it does not loose any time at establishing the origins of every characters, or explaining the relationships between them.So, I understand why the casual spectators may have difficulties at "plunging" into the movie.

Personally, I hugely enjoyed Superman/Batman: Apocalypse and I think that, with the exception of Justice League: The New Frontier, it is the movie from DC Comics I have mist enjoyed.Besides of the screenplay, the characters and the awesome action scenes, it was also a pleasure for me to hear the classic voices from Superman and Batman (in other words, the ones which were used in their respective animated series), as well as the solid contributions from Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman, Andre Braugher as Darkseid and Summer Glau as Kara Zor-El.

The only fail I found on this movie is that some details from the screenplay could have been better polished.But despite of that, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse is a great movie I enthusiastically recommend with the previous warning that the lack of context and explanations may make it a bit difficult to be assimilated by casual spectators.
