Singer, who made a strong impression among comic-book fans for his work on the X-Men franchise and directed Spacey in The Usual Suspects, brings both a fresh eye and a sense of respect to the world's oldest superhero. He borrows John Williams's great theme music and Marlon Brando's voice as Jor-El, and the story (penned by Singer's X-Men collaborators Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris) is a sort-of-sequel to the first two films in the franchise (choosing to ignore that the third and fourth movies ever happened). The humorous and romantic elements give the movie a heart, Singer's art-deco Metropolis is often breathtaking, and the special effects are elegant and spectacular, particularly an early airplane-disaster set-piece. Of the cast, Routh is excellent as the dual Superman/Clark, Spacey is both droll and vicious as Luthor, and Parker Posey gets the best lines as Luthor's moll Kitty. But at 23, Bosworth seems too young for the five-years-past-grizzled Lois. It's nice to see Noel Neill, Jack Larson (both from the classic Adventures of Superman TV series), and Eva Marie-Saint on the screen as well. Superman Returns is one of those projects that was in development for seemingly forever, but it was worth the wait -- it's the most enjoyable superhero movie since Spider-Man 2 and The Incredibles. --David Horiuchi

Think they tried too hard to make another Christopher Reeve movie. Didn't quite have the same flair. Enjoyable but not memorable.Published 14 days ago by Terry J. Keaton
Superman in this movie looked like Christopher Reeves & I think Brandon Routh did a wonderful job playing the man of steel here. This movie is worth seeing & getting..Published 28 days ago by peggy a. garcia
a little cheesy and ok,
made you wonder why it had to be like it was
you know how it was going to end right after it started
I found this movie to just be okay. That's the reason why I am
giving it *3* stars!
This was a good movie, much better as a Superman 3 than Superman 3 was. It was just not a great action movie, but good story. Read morePublished 1 month ago by DR

Greeting Superfriend John,
There were several colored kryptonite from the the era of which you speak:
Gold K- took away Superman's powers forever
Blue K- only affected the Bizarro Superman
Jewel and White K- affected something or someone other than Superman.
Hope this helps.

The Blu-ray is a direct port-over of the 2-disc DVD set. However, there is a misprint on the Blu-ray packaging, which I have confirmed with Warner Home Video. All of the extras are in standard definition, not in 1080p as indicated on the cover of the Blu-ray.
Otherwise, this is a good upgrade,... Read More

|Other superman villains?||
I think the next Superman villain should be Doomsday. I am aware that there is an animated movie with Doomsday but I believe that Superman's death and return to life should receive a live action movie.
