Embittered by Superman's heroic successes and soaring popularity, Lex Luthor forms a dangerous alliance with the powerful computer/villain Brainiac. Using advanced weaponry and a special strain of Kryptonite harvested from the far reaches of outer space, Luthor specifically redesigns Brainiac to defeat the Man of Steel.
In an alternate universe, very different versions of DC's Trinity (Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman), who operate outside of the law, are framed for murders of prominent scientist and the government decides to take them out.

The Dark Knight is back doing what he does best - protecting the citizens of Gotham City - in the third installment of the Batman Unlimited series, Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants. When evil scientist Mr. Freeze activates his latest invention on two of Gotham City's most formidable criminals - Killer Croc and Bane - things go from bad to worse. Turning them into super-sized mutant monsters, the Super-Villains start bashing through the streets of Gotham City with no end in sight. It's up to the Caped Crusader and his Super Hero team to save the day by putting the giant robot mechs in their place - but it will be an uphill battle as they face off against enormous foes.
It might be because I'm used to previous Batman animated films feeling a little more film-like, but as I was watching this I couldn't help but feel that it was just a long version of a Saturday morning Batman cartoon for kids. The story had too many convenient plot points that just happened to work out, and there were a few too many cheesy on liners and characters saying things like "as if". It wasn't terrible, and had some interesting elements to it, but at the end of the day it's not a Batman animated film I can recommend for the more "mature" viewer. It would be fine for kids though. If I had to find a positive, it would be that the voice acting was well done. Also the animation was decent.
