From Amazon.co.uk

Supergirl qualifies as one of the most bizarre comic-book adaptations ever to hit the silver screen. Bereft of logic or sensible plotting, but featuring a strong cast and slick special effects, the film follows Superman's cousin Kara (played by Helen Slater in her film debut) as she leaves Krypton to venture to Earth to retrieve the "Omegahedron", a life-force globe vital to her people's survival. She tracks down the device, unaware that it's fallen into the hands of aspiring black magician Selena (Faye Dunaway), which leads to an inevitable showdown.

All of the strong characters in Supergirl are women, making for a nice change of pace from traditional superhero machismo. However, none of the players seem to notice that many things are left unexplained, including how the naive Kara knows so much about Earth while having never been there, how a novice sorceress can attain power so quickly from something she does not understand, and how hardly anyone notices Supergirl flying around their city! (And hey, where's Superman?) Taken as a campy 1980s comic-book relic rather than a serious adaptation, Supergirl is fun because of its engaging special effects and sets, tongue-in-cheek humour and Dunaway's truly inspired performance. Look for Marc McClure reprising his Superman role of Jimmy Olsen, while Mia Farrow and Peter O'Toole have small supporting roles as Kara's mother and mentor, respectively. --Bryan Reesman, Amazon.com

Product Description

Adventure starring Helen Slater. On a desperate mission to save Planet Earth, Supergirl (Slater), must retrieve a missing life-giving power source to save her home city from total destruction. Startled by her own amazing Superpowers, Supergirl traces the lost Omegahedron only to discover that it has fallen into the hands of the rapacious Selena (Faye Dunaway) who unleashes untold horrors to thwart her young adversary.

Supergirl [DVD] [1984] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

I am a great lover of all comic films, this is a real
favourite of mine, but the Reigon 1 DVD has much more
to offer, the extended version has an extra 15 mins.
So if you like nostalga you will love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Girl Power from the eighties! 21 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of the most memorable films from my childhood and it is great to be able to now have it in my video collection.It tells the story of Supermans cousin,Kara, and her journey to earth to reclaim her planets power source,the omegahedron.
The acting is exceptional and is a film that everyone will enjoy - especially girls as it is the earliest example of Girl Power that I can remember. Sit back and watch in awe and envy at the witches house in the funfair - Imagine living in a ghost train.
Altogether it is an excellent film that you will watch time and time again. Bring It On!

I bought this for my 6 year old daughter for some reason she loves it. The film is not very good but the dvd was used and in very good condition. The price was excellent and I would highly recommend using this company again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Alternative 9 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fans of Superman should consider watching this film to experience the 'gender opposite' alternate to Mr Kents adventures. Dont be shy, give it a try.
