The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.

It’s sentimental, ridiculously long and only occasionally funny

I have always had a love hate relationship with the Superman Movies.first I loved Superman:The Movie(1978)..I consider that one to be a true American all time classic 2nd, I equally loved Superman II(1981) just and much as I loved the original Superman movie...both of those movies set the standards that I believe all comic book movies should be measured by. they are great.3rd, then came Superman III(1983)...okay, this one isn't quiet as good as the first 2 movies. but none-the-less, it does have its moments, and it isn't bad..it just wasn't that great.,,,a few plot holes, but it was still an enjoyable movie 4th, Superman IV:The Quest for Peace....what the hell happened? Its daylight in America and China at the same time, Supes steals all of the worlds nukes, Nuclear Man isn't really nuclear powered(nope he's solar powered)....Mariel Hemmingway can breathe in outer space... and the movie only got worst and worst. so bad that I found myself wondering if adults had really wrote the script, or was it written by a bunch of 3rd graders 5th, then came the Superboy TV series in the late 1980's(which depicted Superman/Clark Kent in college)..not all bad..but not really good either (it lasted one season and then got the ax) 6th, Hollywood just would leave Supes alone...then came Louis & Clark: The new Adventures of Superman. ...again, not bad, ...but not great either...And I never liked Dean Cain as the man of Steel, he was too boyish looking 7th, then came Smallville......Smallville destroys the entire background of Superman's past(Earth past) by placing him in the same high school with Lex Luther in the same town(and they are best friends...but Lex doesn't recognize him when he's superman ...this is pathetic I had given up on the Superman franchise after Smallville.But then came "Superman Returns" .........this was the first truly enjoyable Superman since 1983. Although it still falls short from the Glory of Superman I&II, it is better than Superman III and all of the skimpy Superman related TV shows that have been hasten onto the airwaves over the last 20 years.Brand Routh gives a solid performance as Clark Kent/Superman the special effects are wonderful(fantastic) ..the producers reused the old John Williams music score.....the story is good(although I admit that I did have some issues with Supes using his superpowers to stalk Lois Lane at her home) The writers went back to the basic for this one.this is a must see movie,it gets it right! and it makes up for the 20 years of bad Superman TV shows ! ! ! ! ! !

Terrible - well for anybody who has seen the original Superman movies.Soon as Superman walks into the Daily Planet's offices I just don't get it. Up till that point the movie was OK.And least in the subsequent 'Man of Steel' Superman has some facial & chest hair - no longer a kid.

The style is similar like wonder woman. The story is better than wonder woman. The story telling is fluent based on a more complicated story. The main actors had done their jobs and being pretty and attractive to young audience as in wonder woman. The villains is much better than in wonder woman. So how could wonder woman get a score of 8 while this one only has 6?

I do not want to extend myself in criticize a movie that is clearly not the best movie of Superman, but I think it's unfair to say it's a bad movie. I saw after "man of steel" and it was just terrible. I mean, it's M.O.S a movie about Superman? No. Just think about this points:1. It was a great responsibility to make a movie that would continue with the Superman saga, with no other hero or D.C character, and make it tasteful. Synger does it, but with the spirit of a movie that would have worked in the 80's, not now2. It has the elements of Superman, is luminous, optimistic, and metropolis in the end wants his hero back. It's not a "dramatic alien soap opera"like in Snyder movie, although his romantic spirit might have been much better.3. The plane scene makes it worth seeing the movie and is one of the best scenes ever made about Superman.
