Superman: Unbound is a 2013 animated superhero film based on the DC Comics character Superman. The film is directed by James Tucker and is part of the DC Universe Animated Original Movies series. It features the voices of Matt Bomer as Superman, Stana Katic as Lois Lane, John Noble as Brainiac, and Molly C. Quinn as Supergirl. The movie follows Superman as he faces a new threat in the form of Brainiac, a powerful and intelligent alien who seeks to collect and preserve civilizations from all over the universe. Brainiac initially sets his sights on the planet Krypton, where he attempts to collect the entire population of the planet before destroying it. However, Superman's father Jor-El is able to send his son to Earth just before Krypton's destruction.

Years later, Brainiac returns and targets Earth, hoping to add it to his collection. Superman must overcome not only the physical threat of Brainiac, but also the emotional toll of his past and the choices he has to make in the present. Along the way, he is aided by Supergirl and Lois Lane, who provide support and guidance as he battles Brainiac and attempts to save the planet.

The movie is action-packed and visually stunning, with epic fight scenes and soaring superhero moments. But it also has a strong emotional core, dealing with themes of family, sacrifice, and the importance of doing what's right even when it's difficult. Superman must confront his own fears and doubts as he battles Brainiac, and the movie does a great job exploring the character's inner turmoil and personal struggles.

The voice cast is excellent, with Bomer bringing a sense of vulnerability and compassion to Superman, and Katic and Quinn providing strong female characters who are more than just damsels in distress. The standout, however, is Noble as Brainiac, who is both menacing and complex. The character is a fascinating villain, with a tragic backstory and a genuine desire to preserve life, even if it means destroying planets in the process.

Overall, Superman: Unbound is a thrilling and emotionally satisfying superhero movie that surpasses expectations. It's a must-watch for fans of Superman and DC Comics, but also for anyone who loves a good action movie with heart.

Superman: Unbound is a 2013 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 15 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.6.
