User Reviews

Deliberately goofy and that works!
25 June 2019 | by wiezeboeSee all my reviews

This Spanish Superman parody is seriously funny! Those reviewers that gave it a low rating just don't get it. This movie was not meant to be a big superhero movie, and certainly not to be taken seriously. They made it deliberately goofy, and the result is almost two hours of fun! I had some big laughs with this movie, and enjoyed it all the way. Two hours well spent! Highly recommended for every fan of Superman and parodies.
