Saw this at the San Diego comic con and the 2 hour wait was worth it! Now this is a fresh take on the Death of Superman (obviously only an hour and half long verse how many comic book issues?) but what a movie! This does deserve the PG-13 rating as your going to see Superman and Doomsday in a nasty street fight! (There was also one bad word in the movie too) Then there is Lex Luther. You will hate this bastard (oh yeah, he goes over the top to prove what a scum bag he is).
Yes it is animated but unlike the other DC animated movies this one is probably not for the wee ones (2-7). There is a quit a bit of death in this movie, not bloody or gross but this movie would make Robocop say "that's a lot of bodies." And that is the first 20 minutes.
But once you start watching this one you will be glued regardless if you watched any of the Superman movies before (animated or live action). Don't get popcorn till the middle of this one as your going to spill it in the opening from saying "DAMN! Can they do that?" And then when it is over you can ponder if you should open up a construction business in Metroplis as they will need it.
