Superman: Doomsday

Title: Superman: Doomsday
Year: 2007 (direct-to-video)
Directors: Lauren Montgomery, Bruce W. Timm & Brandon Vietti
Writers: Duane Capizzi & Bruce W. Timm
Starring: Adam Baldwin, Anne Heche, James Marsters
Music: Robert J. Kral
Length: 78 minutes
Synopsis: Superman is killed
How I saw it: on video (rented from Netflix), October 2007
Subjective Rating: 7/10
Objective Rating: n/a (too long since I've seen it)

What  I wrote after watching it:
Superman dies after 15 minutes of fighting. This is significantly less believable than dying after 11 comic books worth of fighting. It's just like, wait, why is he dead already? Dudes with kryptonite have given him worse beatings than that. If they got rid of some tedious love story crap and added in ten more minutes of fight, it might have worked. Otherwise, good movie. Better than the 90's animated series.
