Superman returns was a good movie. Unfortunatly it was 15 years to late. Returns was a almost identical remake of the 1978 superman movie with Christopher reeves. Returns lacked a real villan and physical action, no one to challenge superman.


Lex is just retarded and has been overplayed.

There was good about that movie. nothing at all. what it lacked was a real director and a real story.

Plot: get back your old girlfriend whose married with your son.
climax: lifting an isle of Kryptanite.
fights: lost miserably.

what is to like about Returns?

Just saw the airplane scene from Superman Returns. Say what you will about the movie, that scene is still one of the best goddamn moments in all of Superman filmdom.

It was a good scene but I wouldn't go that far. It was the highlight of that shitty movie though.

Indeed. I also like the gatling gun scene. I have both timed so that when I see Superman Returns in the program guide, I know exactly when to tune in just to see those parts.

The reason I am so enamored with the plane scene is because it's the first time movie goers (certainly myself) are seeing Superman portrayed in the way "he should have been" in the Reeve movies, had they the tech back then. It just gives me da chills.

There's nothing memorable about Superman Returns.

I'll say this for it, Brandon Routh was a great Superman, just in a boring movie.

Accurate tagline: 'Superman lifts a series of increasingly heavy objects: the Movie'

I don't know if I'd say that. When Lex is written well, he's one of the most fascinating villains in comics. That scene in All-Star Superman where Superman challenges Lex to do all the things he says he could have done if Supes hadn't been there is a great example of that.

The introduction of the son was old fashioned and tacky. Like the Mummy II or Indy 4.

And the old fashioned Lex Luthor and bimbo sidekick antics were unnecessary.
Bryan Singer was a wreck on set and tried too hard to slightly modernize the Reeves version of Superman movies.

But Superman Returns was supposed to be Supes returning from space after many years and marveling us with his abilities against opponents that would create a great spectacle. A movie that would evolve the series and make audiences look in wonder at the screen the same way the movies did in the 80's. The beginning of the film quotes Superman as being "Earth's greatest protector", this meant Supes had been fighting many threats throughout the years.

This film was meant to be a restart and all it did was sing the same old song.

Most people here a comic fans. And I would be shocked...if any DC comic fan said Superman Returns was a good movie.


I'm a DC comics fan and a BIG-TIME Superman fan and I loved the movie. smile
