THE PLOT:

After losing a powerful Orb, Kara, Superman's cousin takes it upon herself to leave the safety of the only known surviving population of the Krypton in a pocket universe.

But the orb was found by a would be witch who is able to harness the power for her own twisted schemes and she's not the type of person who would give up power just because Kara says please.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I like the Supergirl outfit but it is different then the comic book, no stomach showing, what's up with that? I mean is this 1984 or 1944? Really, plus as far as I can they they re-wrote Supergirl's origin. I don't know of any pocket dimension filled with Kryptonians on Earth. But it's still pretty good, the effects are impressive and the cast does a bang up job. So over all, 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

Just wanted to say that I do agree with Zedd on this but the whole pocket dimension really bugged me and there was something at the end of the movie that really bugged me without giving it away. Anyway, 6 STARS for me.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)
+ STORY (The story works for the most place)
+ EFFECTS (The effects are impressive.)
+ SUPERGIRL OUTFIT (It did look good, not perfect but good.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- OUTFIT MISTAKE (What's with the solid costume, afraid to show bellybutton? What is this the 1940s?)
- POCKET UNIVERSE (I don't recall a city from Kyrpton on Earth in another dimension.)

...AND FINALLY...

- CLIMAX DISAPPOINTMENT (Without giving anything away, VOLTRON was disappointed with how it ended.)
