Amazing visuals and special effects

by Matt on 1/30/2007

Being a fan of the original Superman the Movie I was surprised to see so much material shown in Superman Returns. It was also a nice touch to use the original music at the beginnig of the movie. As with most big budget movies today, the special effects are excellent. Just like the original Superman the actor playing Lex Luthor stole the show. Kevin Spacey was an excellent choice to take over from Gene Hackman. On the other hand Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane was a let down. She didn't have the tenacity that Margot Kidder brought to the same role. Overall, the movie was very enjoyable even for people, like myself, who don't read or follow the comic books. HD is the only way to see it.

Review At the end of Superman II, the producers promised "Coming Soon: Superman III." It has taken 26 years for that promise to be fulfilled. To be sure, there were movies in the 1980s called Superman III and Superman IV, but those were bad jokes masquerading as motion pictures, unimaginative stories cashing in on a pay-day. These many years later, Bryan Singer has gotten it right. In fact, Superman Returns is not only a credit to the first two Superman movies; it may be the best of the series. Its combination of romance and fantasy adventure is unparalleled in superhero comic book-to-movie sagas.

Review "Why the World Doesn't Need Superman" reads the title of a piece that wins Lois Lane the Pulitzer Prize in "Superman Returns," the latest bigscreen revival of comicdom's strongest and fastest hero. Not only is she wrong in the context of the story (not to mention real life), but she'll be wrong in the court of public opinion once the world gets a look at this most grandly conceived and sensitively drawn "Superman" saga. Sure to rate with aficionados alongside "Spider-Man 2" and, for many, "Batman Begins" on the short list of best superhero spectaculars...Topping off these aspects is the evocative, darkly lyrical score by John Ottman...
