The Christopher Reeve “Superman” series may have lost it, but this female-led superhero spin-off is the real low point and to quote “The Simpsons”; “Oh shush, your worst then Faye Dunaway.” After losing a powerful orb, Kara, Superman’s cousin, comes to Earth to retrieve it and instead finds herself up against a wicked witch. The film stars Helen Slater as Supergirl, along with Faye Dunaway, Mia Farrow, and Peter O’Toole, with Marc McClure reprising his role as Jimmy Olsen from the Superman films. I appreciate the effort I really do; but trying to adapt a movie centered on Superman’s cousin just didn’t work. Whether its its crappy visual effects and action scenes or even its overall tone. But then again; this was back when they couldn’t figure out the female led superhero film formula. A non-recommendation for DC Fans!
