Man of steel meets actor of plastic. A super hero lovers' delight. The legend continues
7.0/10 on the Qwaider scale
I'm such a sucker for super hero mega productions. Where human and CGI graphics live happily ever after.
Superman disappears without a trace or a reason or 5 years where he wonders the universe in search of Krypton his destroyed home-world.
He returns to a changed world. Lex Luthor was released from prison, Lois has moved on and now she's of all things a mother!! She has moved on and received a pulitzer prize for her article "Why the world doesn't need Superman"
Seriously, there is no star in this movie. Even Kevin Spacey sucks. Probably the only half decent performance is done by Kate Bosworth (Lois Lane), and probably James Marsden (Richard Lois's boyfriend).[Update] Correction, the best performace was again by Maroln Brando from the original movie. Of course he passed away, but he get the best part in the movie. He got paied without having to show up. I remember in the 70's he got 10Million dollars for being on the movie for 6 minutes. Awesome![/Update]
Don't be fooled by my last paragraph, the movie is truly spectacular and holds extremely true to the legacy. The best part is arguably the beginning. Using the original sound track of the 70's movie by the one and only amazing superman the late Christopher Reeve. Frankly even the kid in Smallville Tom Welling does a better Superman than the man of Plastic, the Soap opera actor Brandon Routh. Who also looks really gay in tights.
Anyway, the movie holds to the religion. Proving that Superman as a character is larger than the actor who plays it. The movie is is amazingly inspiring and uplifting. Make no mistake it's going to make many kids very happy. Including grownup kids like me. I was super excited.
