(jp) wrote: It's time to review one of my favorite Guilty Pleasures, Supergirl. Yes, this film is stupid but enjoyably stupid. Despite the bad acting, sloppy direction, awkward writing and one dimensional characters this film has a certain "charm" to it. Why is this movie so bad but so good? Let's find out. Kara is Superman's young cousin living in a planet of Krypton survivors. A power source (I'll just call it the ball of power) has been lost and without it the survivors will die. So, Supergirl goes to Earth to retrieve the ball of power. Okay, here's where it gets weird. In the movie, the story is set up like a rescue mission that has a time limit. But then out of nowhere Kara ends up enrolling herself at a Private all girl school. Excuse me, but you do know your planet needs that ball of power like right now? This is no time to find yourself and make friends with Lois Lane's sister. Not even halfway through, we the audience are dragged into a totally different movie. "Supergirl" is now a coming of age story about a girl who has great but inconsistent powers. Now I've heard there was some drama behind the scenes of this movie involving issues with the script. So maybe that's why there are so many plot holes in this film and the script seems to have two plot threads instead of one. The "best part about this movie is the acting. Wow I've never seen so many hammy performances in one movie in my time as a movie goer. The best ham acting of all is Faye Dunaway as the evil witch Selena. Anytime she says anything, I will laugh like a maniac. Even though Selena is the lamest witch I ever seen on screen, it's still fun to watch her try to be evil. Maybe taking over the world isn't her calling. However, the worst acting in this film is done by Helen Slater as Supergirl. On one hand, I understand she has no real good material to work with in the movie. However, she could have at least done what everybody else was doing: don't take this movie seriously. Have as much fun as Faye and even Peter O Toole as Zaltar got a laugh or two. I won't deny that Supergirl is a bad movie. The Effects are laughable, the acting is hammy, the writing is a mess and all the characters in this movie are either tools or blank slates. Still, I had so much fun watching this movie because how bad it is. This is coming from someone that never really got the appeal of the Christopher Reeve Superman films or Superman in general. If you can have a sense of humor about this film and not take it so seriously, then you'll be laughing just as much as I was.

It's a sentimental picture as it tries to act super tough and muscular, and it's kind of like a Saturday afternoon movie for the guys who have already seen Rocky and Rambo flicks too many times and want to see something sort of "different". It certainly is. And not always in a good way.What I liked was seeing how the actors playing the brothers interacted. Cosmo, Victor and Lenny are impressionable and work very well as this trio dynamic. One had high aspirations and has a big mouth but a fairly good heart, another is a crippled war hero who's life has not worked out at all like he might have wanted for himself or his girl, and the other is a fairly content and BIG-sized ice delivery man who finds himself needing money to want that boat house. I liked also how Stallone put these characters against the lumbering idiot gangsters who were too bumbling to really make it as big-shots but could be threatening enough to other bums and the like in the neighborhood. Not to mention the character and performance of Frank McRae as the 40-something wrestler who lives in total degradation even as he's very good at what he does. Oh, and Tom Waits of course, for a role that is merely a blip but one that brings a smile all the same.The problems seem to come for Stallone that he isn't confident enough to take the material where it needs to go as a down-and-dirty grungy street flick. He gussies it up with over-blown camera moves and editing tricks (I hated the freeze-screen effects used), and seem to not always be as strong with dealing with melodrama and the natural way people talk as he did in the first Rocky. If there was a time to make this story maybe it was right after he has his first big success, and then move on to more conventional stuff. But it is at times fairly schmaltzy, and not all of the acting is very good (the female actresses are all pretty weak, and for a couple of good scenes Lee Canalito feel really flat as the "happy" wreslter brother dubbed "The Salami"). Stallone and Asante fare better with the material, and even Stallone himself goes hammy with his own words in some scenes; Stallone is Stallone, not a Pacino or De Niro, so heavy-duty dramatic scenes don't seem to cut it out as well.And yet, the film does have its moments. I especially dug that final wrestling match, the two contenders (the other being, I think, Terry Funk) duking it out as a rain storm is coming down in the arena and the power keeps cutting in and out with lightning effects thrown in. Stallone does make this an epic and nasty and brutal final bout, and it does bring a pretty satisfying completion to a film that is enjoyable but too clichd by half.
