All Star Superman 

 

Super heroes have always been an interest of mine. Superman is a Christ like figure which is why so many identify with him. All Star Superman is the most different kind of super hero movie I have ever seen. Although it may not even fit into the movie category since it is only seventy-six minutes long. I really do not understand why animated super hero movies have to be so short, and the live action ones have to be much longer. It would be great if the animated ones could make the two hour point. Especially when they go off of comic book source materials and they cut much of that source material out.

Thankfully in the case of All Star Superman, I did not read the comic book. So I have no idea what they may or may not have cut out. In some ways it made All Star Superman a more pleasurable experience. But then like so many movies of this age, it comes with all kinds of baggage. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy having the characters more fleshed out. I enjoy understanding why Lex Luther does what he does. I don’t need the bad language from various characters. No one around me talks that way, so it can eliminated like a disease. Super heroes can not go anywhere without some kind of disgusting violent content. All Star Superman is no exception. Superman gets in various fights with different creatures. A few of them wind up dead along the way. The concept of Superman dying for good is explored in All Star Superman. I won’t spoil the ending, but it was certainly not what I was expecting. Along with the incompatibility of humans and Kryptonians.

Jimmy Olsen is one of the strangest characters in All Star Superman. Why he was cross dressing makes no sense to me. Here is something that could have been left out. Is it really that difficult to have a movie where they are not trying to shove some deviant behavior down our throats?

I am a fan of Bruce Timm’s work when he was doing DC cartoons aimed at the younger members of the family. He had Justice League Unlimited as a show that all ages of the family can enjoy. Sadly too many of his movies since then have been big disappointments. I see no reason for all the adult only content. You can tell these stories and keep them safe for children.

With all of the issues in All Star Superman I am very surprised it got a ‘PG’ rating. To me the moral and ethical issues in All Star Superman warrant a ‘PG-13’ rating at the very least. I also wish they could have left the evolution belief at the door instead of preaching it.
