DC Comics gave up so much that the loyal superman follower would be asking serious questions of them. I would, I am dissapointed wiht the strength of the movie
Then there is the problem with the story. So let's see if we can get this straight. Superman disappears for five years and then Lex goes to jail for five years but gets out long enough to meet and marry and pleasure a dying old woman to then steal her fortune so that he can then go back to Superman's fortress and steal the secrets he needs to take over the world. RIGHT! Kawabunga
Is it really that hard to figure out that Clark and Superman returned at the same time?
You're talking about reporters here. People who uncover the truth for a living. And they can't piece together the physical similarities of their look and their physique and the auspicious timing of both of their returns? Duh!!
The reason for his disappearance is lame. The plot by Lex to take over the world is terrible
There was also a terribly attempt to introduce his super-son. Once we find out that he can throw a piano, is it really too much to ask to have him break the door down?
The film is supposed to be a bridge between the second and the present. But there are too many plot holes to accomplish that simple task. And that takes away the credibility of the movie. And if you just don't believe what you are being fed, then there isn't much point to the film.
Not all is bad. I have to admit that at the beginning when John Williams iconic theme blasts over the speakers, I got chills just like when I was a kid. No more "Up! Up! and Away!!!". And the airplane rescue scene is actually breathtaking, especially when it lands on a baseball diamond. Also fun is one brief line when you hear that Superman has been spotted all over the world, including Gotham City, I was being hilarious with Commander that Batman and his utility belt has gone for a vacation....ROTFLMAO
I didn't hate Superman Returns. I just didn't like it all that much. I did laugh and want to cheer in some parts, but more times than not, I wanted it to end. Kevin Spacey Saved the day!!!
