Superman Returns<br><br>Superman fans and non Superman fans will absolutely love this movie!<br><br>I'll start off by saying I'm not a huge Superman fan. I didn't expect to be blown away by this movie, and I don't think I was, or was I? Still trying to figure it out.<br><br>Most of the cast is great. Spacey is wonderful, Brandon Routh IS Superman/Clark Kent (I really didn't think he could pull it off, but wow!!), Sam Huntington is superb as usual, and the rest of the cast is pretty darn impressive as well. The only cast member I wasn't sold on was Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane, no offense to Ms. Bosworth, but she just didn't sell it.<br><br>The movie itself is pretty incredible for the most part, your basic Superman stuff. My personal opinion is that it really dragged on in the pre-beginning, the middle beginning, the mid-middle, and the beginning end. Sorry, this movie's pretty long, so I had to break down the time into sub-categories.<br><br>The special effects are great, and the overall feel of the movie is incredible. Even though it drags on during certain sequences, there are several parts in this movie that will leave you awestruck.<br><br>This movie is already pretty impressive, and with a few changes it could've been one of the best movies I've ever seen. As you can tell I'm kinda confused as to what to think about Superman Returns.<br><br>1/3 of the way through the film I thought about shutting it off, I decided to stick it out and am glad I did. Some people might feel the same way I did, just stick it out, this film turns out to be quite spectacular in the long run.<br><br>Final Verdict:<br><br>5/5<br><br>Rent or Buy?: This review came from a non-superman fan, so I don't think I'll be buying Superman Returns, that being said, this is a movie that will blow you away the first time you see it, and you must see it at least once.<br><br>IF YOU FIND THIS REVIEW HELPFUL PLEASE REMEMBER TO VOTE. Thank you.Read full review

Superman Returns is a great kick start to a potentially knockout new franchise, which ultimately leaves the audience, like the people of Metropolis when its greatest hero returns to the skies, brimming with hope.

Superman Returns (2006, Blu-ray Disc)
For five years, Superman (Brandon Routh) has been away from Earth, coaxed into space by a belief that Krypton may still exist. Finding nothing, he comes back to a changed world--not only has terrorism become rampant, but Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth) has married, started a family, and won the Pulitzer for her piece "Why the World Doesn’t Need Superman." After a stop in Smallville to see his adopted mother (Eva Marie Saint), Superman is back in Metropolis, and Clark Kent has his old job back at the Daily Planet, with everyone still incredibly oblivious to his alter ego. But where there’s Superman, there's Lex Luthor (Kevin Spacey), and he is likely to be planning something dastardly--in this case, using a piece of pilfered kryptonite to grow an entirely new continent that he will control. Bryan Singer (X-MEN 1 and 2), armed with a script by Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty, approaches the red cape with reverence for the lore of the character, and respect for Richard Donner’s SUPERMAN (1980) and Richard Lester’s 1980 sequel, films that ushered in the era of the modern superhero film. Singer’s SUPERMAN is filled with melancholy, and not so subtly suggests the notion of Superman as a Christ figure, sacrificing himself to save mankind. But there are still laughs, mostly courtesy of Spacey (clearly having a blast) and Parker Posey as his moll, Kitty Kowalski, as well as plenty of gasp-inducing set pieces, including a spectacular and terrifying almost-plane crash and a sinking boat. While modern visual effects have allowed Superman to go to entirely new realms, Singer keeps them from becoming the film’s raison d'être, thus keeping the Man of Steel’s gigantic heart intact--heavy though it may be.Read full review

Understated and under rated..
One of the bes version ever out... Mr. Reeves was having health problems at the time so this movie didnt do well at the box office. Great star power line up, Spacy, ParkerPosie, Hottie LoisLane.... Great story line... Wish they'd do more with the same cast.....
