With catastrophe rotting its marrow, "Supergirl" exemplifies the wisdom in waiting to ensure a great female superhero movie. Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel will kick down very big doors. "Supergirl" knocks itself out by heedlessly running into one.

Jeannot Szwarc's direction is flat and uninspired, emphasizing the jokey elements without any sense at all for the material.

Screenplay is filled with witty lines and enjoyable characters, but Jeannot Szwarc's direction is rather flat.

This is one comic-book feature that doesn't fly.

The plain fact is that director Jeannot Szwarc turns in a movie so ludicrous and overblown that it skips right over any semblance of logic and into a self-absorbed flight of fancy.

Boils down to a sexist catfight between two fairly powerful women for the affections of a fashionably unshaven landscaper.

The tagline -- "Her first great adventure." -- is wrong in at least three ways.

Most delightful of the Super-series for its good-natured disregard of narrative considerations.

Why even go to the trouble of making a movie that feels like it's laughing at itself?
