Wow...what a shame. Made primarily for Europe, where DD is a popular comic book, the makers of this had their budget cut in half a few weeks before production. Brandon Routh, who seems a good egg, trying so hard to redeem hisself for Superman Returns, oh what could have been.
Tell you what, I LOVE THIS MOVIE. Because they had to do things cheap cgi is used sparingly and they were forced to use practical fx and wire work and old school tools. Is it genre changing? Nope. But like the ugly girl in the room, it tries harder. I spent most of my youth working in video stores w/vestron, cannon, carolco, and this movie can stand proudly next to Metalstorm:The Destruction of Jared Syn, or Dungeonmaster anyday. Just gum and tinfoil holding together a bare bones fun movie. This movie charmed the pants off me, literally...wearing no pants.
