- Some of the stunts and action sequences on the CW’s ‘Supergirl’ were described by one website as ‘ridiculous’
- Behind-the-scenes footage shows an admittedly lackluster performance
- The movie Mad Max: Furry Road, on the other hand, was praised for its incredible action sequences
- Though the film does use CGI and 3D computer graphics, untouched footage of the film has been called ‘visually stunning’
Behind the scene footage of action-adventure series Supergirl may not be for fainthearted fans of the television show.
In fact, online publication Digg.com described the show as ‘ridiculous’ on Friday after it posted a segment of the series with and without special effects.
Behind-the-scenes footage of the CW production shows ‘Supergirl,’ played by actress Melissa Benoist, parodying some admittedly not so super moves for her role.
One scene shows Benoist blowing into the camera as if struggling to blow out lit candles on a birthday cake. While her co-star Grant Gustin, who plays The Flash, doesn’t fair much better, twirling his arms in circles as if doing some awkward exercise.
Unforgivingly, Digg.com compared the footage to that of the Tom Hardy vehicle ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, Time Magazine described untouched footage from the film as ‘visually stunning.’
Although the movie uses some CGI and 3D computer graphics, much of the movie remained untouched and was praised for its amazing action sequences and daring stunts.
Supergirl originally aired on CBS in 2015 and has been renewed for a third season.
