Its Super, Man!,
This review is from: Superman Returns - 2 Disc [DVD] (DVD)
I was so dubious about another actor taking on the role of Clark/Superman after Christopher Reeve had done such a fantastic job, but then I heard Bryan Singer was in the Director's chair and I started to breath easy. After all, this is the guy behind Kevin Spacey as Keyser Soze and Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. As images and trailers started to appear, my hopes rose higher. This thing looked amazing. And then I saw it. It blew my mind. As soon as John Williams music began a smile spread over my face and I knew I was in safe hands. Acting? First class. Story? Perfect. Special FX? Flawless. Action sequences? Breathtaking! Unfortunately, the story doesn't have a happy ending. After a slight and ineffective marketing campaign and a plot that catered more for character than wall to wall action, unlike say the CGI heavy Pirates of the Caribbean sequel, Superman didn't do as well as expected at the box office. As a personal plea, if all of you true fans out there want a sequel, BUY THIS DVD!
