Superman is one of the greatest super hero films to date!, 19 July 2006
Saw the film at 11am on the first FRiday it was on. Absolutely loved it! The trailers are a pastiche to the original and just make you remember how great a cinematic experience the first 2 films were. Visually it is stunning and the set pieces/ action sequences don't disappoint/ I love the main performance from Brandon Routh. Very much under played but in a good way. He hasn't forced the characterisation of Clark Kent at all. The soundtrack is as ever superb and the end of the film with the Christ - Like analogies were really moving as I'm expecting my own son from my pregnant wife soon! Basically this has to be seen in the cinemas. Go and support films like this as the film cost so much it needs the box office revenue which Pirates is stealing. Spacey has a bawl and the violence at the end added great tension and suspense. Just a great film. As good as the originals for this generation.
