Superman And The Mole Men

Review: At a short running time of 58 minutes, you can’t really expect anything life changing. George Reeves is the best character on the film. Any moment he’s not there, it loses steam. The Mole-Men are laughable, but you begin to feel sorry when people are chasing them. The film basically calls out humans for clinging to fears. It feels like a typical monster movie with the mobs and stuff. If you’re a huge fan of Superman, you should watch this history making film, it’s Superman first feature film.
