Review

Review Text Producer/director Bruce Timm was conscious as he looked for a composer for his animated straight-to-video film Superman: Doomsday that there had been several other Superman movies and television shows, all with background music. So was Robert J. Kral, whose previous credits include the TV series Angel. Neither seem to have wanted what Timm in his liner notes calls music that was "too upbeat and 'John Williams-y.'" Then, too, the story, based on a trilogy of graphic novels, The Death of Superman, called for something darker and less heroic. (Never fear, though. There are cues called "Superman's Return" and "Superman's Victory.") That is what Kral has delivered in music meant to sound as if it's been played by a symphony orchestra, even though it was extracted from computers and synthesizers. At the same time, however, Kral couldn't go too far afield; this is Superman, after all, and a cartoon, to boot. So, the usual rules of traditional Hollywood scoring applied, and Kral has accompanied moments of action, love, and triumph in appropriate, if ersatz, orchestral style. ~ William Ruhlmann
