  • Superman returns with a bang. Singer tarnishes his hero's halo with just enough sexual longing and self-doubt to make him riveting and relatable. That "S" on his suit has a whole new meaning: He's a Soul man. show more

  • The movie consistently delivers in lots of little ways, but in a big way only once, in a spectacular sequence that begins with a series of earthquakes and culminates in an airline catastrophe. show more

  • The daunting logistics of Superman Returns have obviously affected the director's work -- thus the hit-or-miss continuity of the narrative -- but Bryan Singer hasn't been defeated by them. While his movie can be cumbersome, it's consistently alive, and that is saying a lot when many such productions are dead in the water, on land or in the air. Also, how can you resist the charm of a fantasy in which everyone gets his news from newspapers? show more

    I love Superman but when is Superman going to fight someone worth his time? When are movie producers going to drop Lex Luther and give Superman a real challange? I would love to see Superman fight a real supervillan like Iron Man, Spiderman, the Advangers and the X-Men do. Come on Movie producers, give us a REAL Superman.
