Verdict on Super Pets
Super Pets is an animated adventure movie following a group of pets that get superpowers along with Superman’s pet to save the justice league. They must learn the skills they have been given to save the heroes and the planet from the evil plan.
This is a fun little animation putting a spin on superhero movies. By taking the characters and making them pets add layers to the comedy in the movie. Even if the comedy is at times aimed at a younger audience. The different abilities the different animals receive get to play against the stereotypes you would imagine certain animals having.
Final Thoughts – Super Pets is a fun animation that the whole family can enjoy.
