There have been critics who have been stinting in their praise for this movie, but others were quite condescending. This film is far from a masterpiece, and definitely not the best of the Superman franchise, but it was fairly solid considering what it could've been. First off, visually it looks amazing and I thought the special effects were extremely good. Same with the music score, full of those familiar motifs and some new haunting ones too. While Lex Luthor wasn't portrayed as the cold, shrewd yet somewhat lovable villain Gene Hackman played so memorably in the original movies, Kevin Spacey the competent actor he is played him very well. Also Bryan Singer's direction was able and had just the right edge, and I was intrigued by the film's concept. And I have to say, some of the action scenes were very exhilarating. However, there were elements that could've been better. One of the main problems I had with the film was the pace, I found it unusually slow and there are scenes like Clark listening in on Lois and Jason that dragged on for too long. And maybe I am in the minority who felt that it could've been half an hour shorter, and that the script was clunky at times. Also, I wasn't taken with the two leads either. Brandon Routh is handsome and he is charming but he isn't charismatic enough as Clark Kent/Superman, and Kate Bosworth left me cold as Lois. In regard to these two, the relationship between the two characters was underdeveloped. All in all, a solid and visually enthralling film, but it is let down by uneven pacing and a clunky script. 6/10 Bethany Cox
What an entirely pointless film this was. This serve no purpose and way too late, after the fourth one. The fourth one was such a dumb Saturday morning cartoon. this movie tries be to like Batman Begins, still doing the family friendly series, which it didn't work. This should have been a reboot, instead a suppose sequel. Bryan Singer is not that great of a director. The only Singer film I like is Valkyrie. I don't hate this, this is just a middle- of-the-road-film.
.Horrible! No it didn't have humor or romance or anything... wait maybe it did. But it doesn't matter! It was BORING! I haven't watched it for quite some time so i tried to rewatch it. Twice. Failed both times. I just saw the first and last 15 minutes. Boring!
