Fantastic!
1 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One laugh after another. Most of the actors were terrific. Outstanding choice for Wonder Woman. Superman so fit the hunk type. Lex Luthor nailed the devious part, but you still cheer for him a little. The actors who played Ray-ray and Green Lantern surprise you with great skill. Batman had a nice Will Ferral like comedy to him. Robin was also performed well with a new twist. Black Canary was gorgeous, I wish I looked like her. These actors had a good director.

I appreciate the diverse cast. That added spice to the story.

The good writing team did it's homework and they take you on a reality show Super friends gone bad kind of a journey without being too grotesque, although they could have pushed the envelope a tad more. It's a blast! Production quality was solid for a shoe string budget.

There were a few supporting actors not worth mentioning, but even a good director can only do so much with people who don't have it to begin with either by look, talent, or both. Maybe some of the cast were a last resort. However, I must ask why the casting powers went against type with Lois Lane, who looked too old and sorry, the opposite of pretty. Maybe they thought that would be funny. It wasn't, and of course she acts worse than she looks if you can imagine. That hurt this project, it looks like she's reading from a cue card.

This short film is a now a 3 part web series on you-tube, where I discovered. It's WORTH the watch!
