ReviewSource ReelViews
Review To date, the 1978 theatrical version of Superman remains the only motion picture based on a comic book to have a lush, epic feel. Developed by Godfather scribe Mario Puzo with reverence for the venerable superhero, Superman pays homage to the legend's mythology without losing sight of the character's essential humanity. Other superhero movies have attempted to recapture the feel and intent of Superman; to date, none has succeeded...Taking Superman as a whole, there's no doubt that it's a flawed movie, but it's one of the most wonderfully entertaining flawed movies made during the 1970s. It's exactly what comic book fans hoped it would be, and it never apologizes about its origins.

Review "Superman" is a pure delight, a wondrous combination of all the old-fashioned things we never really get tired of: adventure and romance, heroes and villains, earthshaking special effects, and -- you know what else? Wit. That surprised me more than anything: That this big-budget epic, which was half a decade making its way to the screen, would turn out to have an intelligent sense of humor about itself...And then the special effects. They're as good in their way as any you've seen, and they come thick and fast...The movie is, in fact, a triumph of imagination over both the difficulties of technology and the inhibitions of money. "Superman" wasn't easy to bring to the screen, but the filmmakers kept at it until they had it right.

Chris Hewitt, Empire ...hits the characters, feel and look of the comic spot on, especially Reeve in the title role.
Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle screenplay...striking cinematography...winning performance by Christopher Reeve...
Variety ...a wonderful, chuckling, preposterously exciting fantasy.
