Not very well done and difficult to understand the dialogue.

Jocasta said it best when she used the word "meander". The movie jumps from story to story and never really explains anything. George Reeves was a hustler but not very much of an actor. He was a kept man by Diane Lane's character and Jocasta said it best when she used the word "meander". The movie jumps from story to story and never really explains anything. George Reeves was a hustler but not very much of an actor. He was a kept man by Diane Lane's character and stupid enough to think that he could take her and her mobster husband on and get away with it. The end result was predictable. He hated playing Superman and was a phony for doing so. The only sincere person in the film was his agent who had his best interests at heart. After viewing all the possible scenario's for his death suicide was the most plausible. There was nothing about him to even suggest that anyone wanted him killed. This movie failed at every level.

Great Cast. Great Potential. But unfortunately this movie meanders nowhere. Comes up as flat as a pancake and is soon forgotten when you leave the theater. It could have been sensational but the director didn't have the experience to Great Cast. Great Potential. But unfortunately this movie meanders nowhere.

This film was on my must see list and despite the mediocre reviews I went to see it. The movie is disjointed and rambles nowhere. Overacted in parts and jerks the audience away at the wrong inoppertune moments. And when it is done you are This film was on my must see list and despite the mediocre reviews I went to see it. The movie is disjointed and rambles nowhere. Overacted in parts and jerks the audience away at the wrong inoppertune moments. And when it is done you are right back where you started but only totally frustrated. Very poor directing and is parts is difficult to understand what the actors are actually saying. Since these are professional, very good actors the blame must go to the director who had no clue what he was doing. Avoid. Expand

Worst movie I've seen in a while. At least Brody is interesting enough to look at.

Absolutely atrocious. The script was banal and general, and really told no particular story whatsoever. A two hour meander. [***SPOILERS***]Diane Lane is, however, along with Bob Hoskins, excellent. If the movie had focused on their Absolutely atrocious. The script was banal and general, and really told no particular story whatsoever. A two hour meander. [***SPOILERS***]Diane Lane is, however, along with Bob Hoskins, excellent. If the movie had focused on their relationship alone, and how Superman cozied up to her to enhance his career - then you might have had a movie. Adrien Brody and the phantom 'murder' are ridiculous. Brody is a giant ham, who projects neither detective, nor father. He is out of his league, but in fairness has absolutely nothing to do. The direction is limp and lifeless, and not a single moment is there an ounce of any true suspense or intrigue. Collapse
