Supa Modo is the story of a young girl whose dream of becoming a superhero is threatened by terminal illness, inspiring her village to rally together to make her dream come true. It is a heartwarming, cute and nicely made kids film that talks about difficult issues such as death and cancer in a rather charming way , so that younger addiences could be educated and moved. It is a good film for kids from 7 to 12 years old and that's all. It often feels forced,cheesy and clitche but if you are a parent, yuor kid should watch this fim!
