Definitely not from D.C.
25 July 2012 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I've seen a few knockoffs of the D.C. Family in the last few years. I've also seen a few that D.C. authorized that I still don't know what they were thinking. But this is by far the most embarrassing one to date. The fight scenes from the old Superman T.V. show starring George Reeves were more believable than any of the fight scenes in this. The acting was terrible. Not a single person delivered a decent performance. Not surprising since the dialog and plot were not written very well. It's tough enough to portray established characters with excellent writing but with this poor writing the cast had no chance. Warner Brothers and D.C. should be suing these guys for defaming their property.
