  • So.... what do you think about Superman? (may contain spoilers)

    I didn't go with any expectations and i must say, i almost fell a sleep... WTF was that??? beside few cool effects, shit this was one boring movie.

    Some friends of mine thought that this movie was a blast, so i wonder what are your views.

    I'm with you.

    My husband seemed to like it and there was a lot of action, but I found it boring too. The story itself moved too slow for me and there wasn't really all that much to it. Some movies I'd consider seeing again, but this one isn't one of 'em.

    It was also very predictable. There's a kid in the movie. Hmmmm, could it be Superman's son that he doesn't know about? Well, I'll be! - It is!

      I liked it....I mean, I thought it was a good movie, and did feel like the old 80s Superman flicks. But that movie needed a LOT more action than it had. I'm really hoping that next movie has a supervillain, because as......just about all of Marvel's movies have shown, a big fight with a supervillain in your climax really puts the movie over the top.

      As it was, this was a good film, but not nearly as fun or exciting as Pirates of the Caribbean 2. Not even close.

        Still haven't seen Pirates 2.... people tell me its a good flick but tooooooo long.

        And im totally agree with the action part about Superman, wasn't much there, and the story sure moved slow.

        Superman's son..... now thats puzzles me, i thought that this Superman was set right after the original one (Superman 1), if so, Superman (well, Kent) had sex with Lois in Superman 2 (you remember, when he decide to let his powers go).

        The whole son part was too much for me.

          Haven't seen the new Supes yet, but from what I have read I was under the impression that, as far as continuity is concerned, Superman and Superman II both happened, but Superman III and Superman IV have been swept under the carpet.

            As it should be.

            Writing Superman to have a kid is interesting for the movies, so long as they don't go over the top with it. I mean, by the time Superman III rolls around I don't want to be seeing Superboy show up.

              It was better than I expected, and I wasn't expecting much. If I was younger and not a cynic (which I have been since I was 11), then I would have enjoyed it even more.

                I liked it a great deal.

                Mr Routh (though not an obvious choice for Mr Red Knickers and Tights) was superb at portraying the alieness of Superman and his alienation after his return from his fruitless search for others like him (who don't want to conquer Planet Houston). He was also very believable as Clark Kent.

                Wasn't too keen on the new look Ms Lane though but she did well enough.

                Spacey was very good (I prefer Hackman though).

                The one thing that was lacking was the fun...the 'gee wizz' sort of glee that the first two had was kinda missing.

                Hopefully if another film turns up...what with Supes having something to smile about again... that will come back.

                All in all a much better Superman III than some other Superman III's that may have been made.

                  I didn't think much of the film. The plot was lackluster and too many characters made too many stupid choices.

                    Super Hype

                    I actually hated it. $220 million???? Where??? Maybe they should have given 10 million to JMS to write an actual compelling story.

                    Continuity problems and damn those crystals that build land... and Louis is an olympic swimmer -- I could go on but I would be typing till noon tomorrow...

                    I thought the acting was fine I guess but Routh tried too hard to be Chris Reeve... Louis' boyfriend is much more a man than sups -- strange story..

                    Here is a good comparison -- You don't have to SPEND to entertain..

                    Serenity $35 million -- I felt was a solid written film with decent special effects
                    Superman $220 million -- story is burden by common sense flaws, special effects are good but twice the money of revenge of the sith?

                    Sorry just my opinion -- I was actually really looking forward to it (because it was to continue after #2)...

                      I've said this in other forums so I'll continue the theme here.
                      katie bosworth is a child, not a hard bitten reporter
                      She's too young. I mean he was gone for 5 years, she has the kid not long after he leaves which means she was like 17 in the first two movies?
                      Purlease.
                      I mean otherwise I enjoyed it but the kiddie reporter as Lois Lane just drove me up the wall.

It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

                          One anti-American film per year is enough.
                          Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.
