Superman returns... well, for one thing he did and yet i believe they could've made the movie a lot better than it already is. CG's are great and really state of the art. But, i like the old superman movies. I was just kinda disappointed that they didnt even show there "In memory of Christopher reeve..who made us believe that a man can fly"..its supposed to be a tribute to chris reeve who once embodied the superman persona. I guess, there's no one else who can replace the late mr. reeves as "superman/clark kent". Its just like saying, there's only one michael jordan in the NBA, kobe, lebron, and all the newcomers just emulate him. I've always been a superman fan ever since i was a kid. i remembered watching it when i was a little boy and saw how people in the theater stood up, clapping their hands when they saw the man of steel save lois and catch a falling helo (helicopter). It was awesome. In superman returns, they tried doing that too. You know, tried to bring that "whoa", "awesome" effect when superman tried saving the doomed plane lois was riding on. What can i say, "spectacular special effects", awesome flying, like in the comics, like how superman should fly but i dont know, it didnt have that "wow", "awesome" effect that superman 1 had during the late 70's. Its probably coz, back then, in the 70's they didnt have the technology yet but eventhough, that was so, people stood up in the theater and superman won the hearts of moviegoers and fanatics alike all over the world. What's even worse in superman returns is that, now he has a son. I dont know if he really did in the dc comicbooks. Coz if he did have a son, then i must've missed reading that comicbook issue. i dont remember having read anything like that. The writers should've been faithful to what has been featured in the comic books just like in smallville. i like the series better. However, superman returns has its moments too. it wasnt a bad movie,actually it was a good one. but, it could've been better. there's a scene that was kinda emotional like when he was beaten up by luthor's guys and eventually stabbed by luthor himself with a sharp kryptonite. it made superman vulnerable and he almost died. I like that in a movie where the hero also gets beaten up making him not that invincible. The movie has its strengths and weaknesses as well. All movies have but if you compare the superman now with the superman back then, i guess, some of you would agree that , it used to be better back then. Well, i hope, in the next superman VI movie, they can do something more..make it more action packed, fast paced, intense yet emotional, and moving.
