In many scenes, Brandon wears combinations of blue, red and yellow, the main colors in Superman's traditional outfit. (This tactic was also used on the character Clark Kent in the TV series "Smallville.") See more »
(At around 1 hour 14 min) Brandon flew thru the house creating a hole in the wall in front of his mother, who was hiding under the counter. The hole clearly expanded below the counter top with dust coming out floating toward her. The second shot after that shows the same wall, level with the counter top, with no hole and no dust whatsoever. See more »
SPOILER: There are a few short scenes during the first part of the end credits where news reports and a conspiracy theorist reveal there are other super beings, including a half-man/half-sea creature and a witch who chokes her victims with a rope. See more »
The UK version is cut in two scenes to reduce strong gory images in order to obtain a '15' rating. See more »
This film has so much promise, it just lacks a special kind of substance. I had rather high hopes for it but it just lacked a killer blow. Maybe they're saving something bigger for a sequel. The biggest moments they saved as a sizzle reel during the credits? I guess they ran out of budget or something. The horror elements were cool, the kid was actually pretty decent. Just wanted more.
