If superman was evil
12 May 2019 | by kaefabSee all my reviews

Man that was a great turn of events, this movie was quit good and another take of a sub superman but this time instead of defending humanity he is pure evil....

I hope this movie gets is due credits because its pretty good, some great gore too at some point and great twist at the end.
