4/10
Would have been much better with subtlety. And a modest filmmaker.

The main reason I watched this 17-minute short film was Mandy Moore. I actually really like the idea of her being cast as Lois Lane and I certainly would approve of that decision in a real Superman movie. Unfortunately, Moore did not have that much screen time in here and also her voice was done by somebody else. Still it was nice to see her, it's kinda rare these days with her being mostly in animation. Anyway, this film already starts off by the false perception by the filmmaker that there is something wrong with Superman. There is not. He is one of the biggest heroes out there and gets millions of people into theaters. This film was written and directed by Max Landis and he also narrated the story. So far, that is still fine. However, the way he comes off in here is that he is incredibly full of himself and believes he is a bigger star than Moore, Wood, Howard, McCurdy and Pegg. Why the hell would he speak their voices all the time. And why would he constantly show himself during this short movie. Has this guy heard nothing about subtlety. Literally, he is in the face of everybody during these almost 20 minutes and he is truly annoying with his constant rambling and how he thinks he knows the truth about everything. This way he destroyed a piece of filmmaking which actually had some potential to turn out good, even if he included every superhero you could think of in here. Quality over quantity, dude. Final verdict: Not recommended.
