"Child artist Deni is played the role of Villi Wilson and he was the show stealer from the first to last. Another important character in this film is played by None other than Ansiba who is one of the most popular actress in kerala now after the epic film Drishyam. Her performance in Drishyam as Mohanlal's Daughter gave her a lot of fan following and handful of films both in Malayalam and Tamil . She had done character part very well in Little Superman too. Other artists of the movie includes Kakka Ravi, Baby Nayanthara, Madhu, Praveena and others and all were done justice to their roles. V.N Babu and Vinayan financed the movie under the banner of Akash films banner. S. Ratheesh penned down the dialogues for the movie .The music department is handled by Mohan Sithara and lyrics were written by Kaithapram Damodaran Namboothiri. The technical team was amazingly done their part and editor sunil deserves special mention for his crisp editing. On the Whole this Vinayan film is an engaging fun ride for all and you will not be disappointed after watching it. After all we all have a child inside us" – Onlookersmedia
"Though logic may seem a casuality, in a fantastical story it can be overlooked. There is not much of a story to tell here, it is all about revenge and some light is also thrown on some of the rotten tendencies prevailing in our society. It is as a visual treat that 'Little Superman' thrives. The 3D effects are well handled and after movies like 'Anaconda', 'Tiger', 'Dinosaur' etc. this movie is an example of how 3D effects can be smartly used. Graphics are handled with finesse and in only very few scenes that things look slightly overboard. Technically the movie is top notch and narration is very much Vinayan like. Songs are decent and actors including the child artists have put in a competent show. 'Little Superman 3D', is a colourful spectacle for the family and children" - Metromatinee
