Overview

As the Man of Steel prepares to reveal himself to the world and declare his longstanding love for "Daily Planet" reporter Lois Lane, an old nemesis teams with a foe of unlimited power to wreak havoc over Metropolis in this animated adventure that pits Superman against a villain the likes of which the world has never seen. A powerful computer with a special strain of kryptonite infused to his body and a hunger for world domination, Brainiac forges an unholy alliance with the dreaded Lex Luthor that aims to bring the world's most famous superhero to his knees. When a force beam originally intended to take out Superman instead blasts Lane, the race is on for the desperate hero to enter the dreaded Phantom Zone and find the cure that will restore her health. The nefarious partnership between Luthor and Brainiac takes a turn for the worse, however, when, believing The Man of Steel to have buckled under the pressure of his powerful blast, Brainiac betrays his one-time partner to strike terror into the very heart of Metropolis.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
With all of the pizzazz of the Superman: Animated Series comes this straight-to-DVD feature, Brainiac Attacks -- an explosive adventure that pits the Man of Steel against two of his most feared foes. Grand in its exhilarating fight sequences while true to character in its handling of Superman and Lois Lane's complicated relationship, the picture is bigger and more expansive than its small-screen predecessor in almost every way. In the context of the hero's mythology, the audience gets a rare glimpse into the negative zone as well as an answer to what might happen if Clark Kent's secret identity became not so secret. As usual with Warner Bros. animated products, the fun is for the whole family, so there's plenty for young kids to delight in while watching Supes duke it out with giant robots -- and that he sure does! The only thing is that there is so much action that the story almost gets bogged down by it all. Thankfully, the animators are having such a field day with the iconic hero that it's easy to be sucked back into the awe of Superman as soon as he revs up those laser eyes of his. Exceptional voice talent is utilized for the film, most notably Lance Henriksen as Brainiac and ex-Wings-man Tim Daly as the man in tights. Somewhat heavy opposition came from the animated series' fan base with the changing of the vocal guard with the film, primarily with Powers Boothe taking over the acting duties of Lex Luthor from series regular Clancy Brown.
