Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The effects are cheesy and Supergirl's wide-eyed, cheery heroine simply isn't interesting to watch for an hour and a half.
Screenplay is filled with witty lines and enjoyable characters, but Jeannot Szwarc's direction is...
June 21, 2017
Most delightful of the Super-series for its good-natured disregard of narrative considerations.

Common Sense Says
Female superhero can't save this '80s clunker.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this tween-appropriate film as comic book-style violence. All types of weapons are used (from knives to a nauseating amusement park ride), but there's never any blood or gore. The heroine, a high school-aged superhero, presents a good role model for tweens (and even younger girls), and the character is juxtaposed against a ruthless female villain whose minions occasionally drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes.There are some mildly scary scenes and Supergirl's mentor tragically dies in a brief non-graphic scene.
