Great show for children and adults alike!

This movie is great for both children and adults! It is a cool concept and takes the two familiar characters, Superman/Clark Kent and Lois Lane, into a different lens when it comes to the audience. It is cool to see these characters in today’s society instead of in the 1970’s like we’re used to. Also, there is no explicit sex, language, or drinking, drugs & smoking. The only violence is when characters are arguing and when Superman is fighting villains, but it is nothing a 10-year-old can’t handle. It has many both positive messages and role models, so it is good for teaching kids when it comes to positivity.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
