Product Description

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.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This review is for the Limited Edition 2 disc version of the film.

One disc is the theatrical edition; the other is an extended edition. The latter has an extra 15 minutes of footage, and it helps fill-out the movie (adding a little extra depth to the story-telling). I much prefer the extended cut of the film.

The box is nice, and it comes with a booklet - providing information on the making of the film, as well as a little artwork for fans.

While I'd ordinarily recommend buying this limited edition, it's up for sale at between £50 and £100 ... which is WAY too expensive. If you can find this edition for £20, then get it. Otherwise stick with the standard DVD.

I'm pretty sure they'll release the film on Blu-ray - and when they do, the extended cut might be included. Let's hope so.

Huge fan of the Superman and loved Supergirl growing up as a kid as well. This is a brilliant spin off to Superman and it is full of magic and wonder of its Super cousin . Helen Slater plays Supergirl spot on and the film doesn't deserve the negative reviews. Doesn't try and be anything it is not the film and it is basic but fun warm and very enjoyable . A must for any Superman fan.

This movie was never going to win any awards, despite the talents of Peter O'Toole and Faye Dunaway. Helen Slater's portrayal of Linda Lee/Kara/Supergirl fits well with the feel of the rest of the movie. I do think this movie is sometimes unfairly slated. Sure, it's got more cheese than a 3-cheese pizza, but it's still entertaining enough.

Underrated film, highly enjoyable from start to finish. Helen Slater had a lot to live up to and doesn't disappoint in a movie with impressive special effects for the time and an interesting story that although absurd doesn't lose pace or focus.

Highly recommended for people who appreciate old school comic book adaptions.

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.

This film has had a fare share of bad reviews and publicity but I don't think it's fair and justifiable.

I watched this as a child long before Superman so it is part of my memories and remembering loving it so much, thanks to Faye Dunaway's performance and good use of humor. I agree, it's not in the same league as Superman, but it's much more entertaining than Superman III which I got bored with half way through. With this it's fun throughout and found it is refreshing that all the female characters are strong and individualistic rather than damsels in distress (Louis Lane) and the flying sequences are much more believable in this movie than the first Superman because of the advance in technology in the 80's. Also, people discredit Helen Slater's wonderful performance. This was not only her first film, but also a starring role. And beautifully shows the differences in character of Kara and Linda Lee. Unlike Superman who has lived on Earth most of his life, Kara has just come. Therefore audience may have been baffled as to why Helen's performance makes it look like she's puzzled all the time, that's because she's growing and learning throughout the film (It's basically a coming-of-age film) and I think the score is wonderful by Jerry Goldsmith. Sorry for the long comment and hope you find it useful. It is worth the watch.

Brought for my dad, we watched it years ago and he loved it. was really happy with the price I paid, brings back memories. Helen Slater is Supergirl. The same concept as Superman who has gone away on a trip somewhere and she ends up having to do a superman and save everyone from a nasty vilian.Easy to watch not much think in involved
