Reviews and Comments

From Einhander :

Ahhh....I messed up on my rating! Anyways..this is a fine cartoon, and my favorite of the Famous Studios Superman run. I'll admit that the plot is cliche, but the atmosphere, characters, music score, and the animation are all very good. I'ts a fun ride all the way.
