With better visuals, it would easily be among the Top 5 DC animated films, but dubious designs keep it just out of elite class status.

The conflict between The Elite's way of doing things and Superman's sets up a "might makes right" allegory wrestling with national and global politics as well as, on a more personal level, civilian tolerance of capital punishment. [Blu-ray]

A forgettable Superman vehicle and one I won't be re-visiting any time soon.

Like All-Star Superman before it, SUPERMAN VS. THE ELITE is an exceptional animated superhero movie. It's violent and has some adult subject matter, but it also has a strong, thoughtful story and worthwhile messages.
