      I liked Brandon Routh acting but yes it was a badly written script. I feel it would have been better to have him playing the son of Superman. He would have been perfect since he looks so much Christopher Reeve. Remember in Superman 3 when bad Superman slept with that lady. She could have been his mother. So when Lois son doesn't have his powers is because he third generation Krypton. Than work from there.

      I would just like for him to have another Superman movie, as a side project separate from the main DC continuity, where he actually gets to fight Lex Luthor, instead of just getting his ass kicked by him, and his henchmen.

    I think the best thing about this movie is the casting; Brandon as superman was perfect, say what you will about Kevin but I think he was a good Lex Luthor, and the rest of the supporting cast.
    Fun fact: Henry Cavill was in the running to play superman in this. Glad they waited 6 yrs to give him the part.

      I gotta say Kevin Spacey (despite his monkey business that we’d hear about years later) is/was a good actor. Perhaps he played the most menacing version of Lex Luthor to exist in history of Superman Movies.

    • Ugly German Truths
      Ugly German Truths Рік тому +1

      Routh looks great in stills and poses, but Critic's description of the acting is sadly justified... he is so cool, distant and unapproachable as if he died and came back to life without a soul.

      Kevin Spacey is a great actor and his Luthor *should* have been great, but the version of the character in the movie is TERRIBLE, an angry troll who doesn't really does or says anything smart, wastes advanced alien tech on another harebrained real estate scam, and bonks an old woman to get back into business.

      Then Michael Bendis came, didn't want to write a married Superman with a son, so he separated Clark and Lois and aged up Jonathan Kent to young adulthood, made him a MLM person, and thus ended ruining the entire family dynamic.

      @NaturallyMe2011 I think it was good for what they had to work with. We know Tom wasn’t going to get in the suit and thus not fight. The fact he was willing to come back at all is wonderful and does pay homage to Smallville.

      @NjA I agree that Michael Rosenbaum is awesome. He's honestly my favorite version of Lex. Clancy Brown does a good job as the animated version of Lex but my favorite Lex will always be Michael Rosenbaum.. I also liked the friendship chemistry that he and Tom Welling had. You could really tell that Lex and Clark were friends and you can definitely feel the pain when they end up becoming enemies. They both played off of each other so well.

    One of the best casting decisions in this was Brandon Routh as he looks more like his comic book counterpart than what Henry Cavill does. The sad thing is they didn't really give him much dialogue when he was Superman. One of the better things about the 1978 motion picture was the conversations between the man of steel and Lois. Particularly the interview in her apartment. There was nothing like that in Superman Returns.

  • The Great Mona Cage
    The Great Mona Cage 2 роки тому +340

    Here's how the movie should've started: Superman is at his peak. He's loved by everyone, Lex is in prison, he's married to Lois and has a son. Whilst he's out flying, then comes the announcement that Krypton survivors may have been spotted. He's filled with emotion and doesn't think what he's hearing through. He instantly leaves. We get a shot of Lex laughing when he finds out Superman left then boom, title card. This creates the idea to the audience that Luthor has been planning this whole thing. When he returns to Earth, he's hated by everyone. Lex is out, has become loved by the city. Where there once was a statue of Superman, there exists now one of Lex. Lex is now trying to manipulate Superman's son to join his side. Make it personal. Put the blame on Superman. Male him feel responsible. Actually kill off Lois to hammer it home. That superman leaving screwed everyone over. Also, you can include that his mother died during those 5 years he was away. Really get to him.

    This was the first movie I ever saw in the movie theater when I was a kid. As a kid, I loved Superman! Watched the old cartoons, had the action figures, read some of the comics, etc. When I was 5 years old, I went to the movie theater for the first time with my dad and we saw Superman Returns on the big screen. I was so blown away by that movie, loved it so much. I re-watched it before I watched this video and I think it’s still pretty good in my opinion all these years later.

But nope, none, so it *could* technically be any universe where cell phones don't exist? Idk it sucks and was impossible to follow if you mistook it as a stand alone, which most did)
      Edit: And apparently I missed a kid pointing a camera flip phone directly in a scene.

      @Ezel Francisco Well more like came back, betrayed e verything about his character by giving up his powers when the world needs him for his own selfishness. Leaving his children defenseless if another super villain shows up and he can't protect them. Hears the multiverse is collapsing and will destroy all sentient life, laughs at it, then goes to see what his rugrats painted on the wall.
      Yep, he came back alright. As Selfishman.
      Now, get this, heres how it should've went down. Tom Wellings Supes hears about the multiverse collapsing, asks if there's anyone else on it and is told that there's a whole group of people. He tells them that he must protect his own home as there's some disaster going on and he has to stay there to deal with it.
      Let's say Darkseid is back and has taken over the world, he can't just leave that because of the multiverse, if he does people will definitely die whereas if he lets the other heroes handle it, they could very well succeed while him staying behind could make sure no one else suffers while he's out saving the rest of them.
      He says he cannot help because of this and everyone understands, we can still do the Lex Luthor part but just say maybe he built up a tolerance to Kryptonite after being on earth for so long and being exposed to Kryptonite over and over, Lex has to run back to Charlie and live in his lakehouse afterwards.
      THERE, character saved.
      But instead we got what we got because Tom Welling was tired of everyone asking him to be Superman again and he just wanted to be done with it. Plus it was a neat little paycheck.
      Face it, Tom Welling hated the role, hated us and wanted to be free of it.

    We recently reviewed this and I am not sure that it’s quite right to say the film played it too safe. It certainly retreaded ideas from the Donner films, but it was an unprecedented idea at that time to simply ignore sequels and play as a direct sequel to Superman II.
    It also was the first mainstream superhero film to really delve into the psychology of its hero and make that the focus of the story. By no means is this a perfect film, but it is more interesting than often is acknowledged and it does a solid job of presenting the character of Superman that is known from the comics.

    Parker Posey being in this film annoys me because she could have been the perfect Lois Lane in this film opposite Brandon Routh’s Clark Kent, she has the looks of Lois and has the perfect personality and she just has a personality in general
    heck James Marsden being in this film annoys me as he could have been a great Superman however I am so glad Routh got the role except I’m annoyed he didn’t get to do more as he is perfect casting
    Superman’s son in this film should have been a clone made by Lex Luthor after having visited the Fortress of Solitude

    Not to defend this movie, but Superman also doesn't punch anyone in the original 1978 film. I don't even think that there was an action sequence until the last act other than the helicopter scene.

    • Shiranui Aensland
      Shiranui Aensland 2 роки тому +4

      @Kimi FW NC already pointed out that the 1980 sequel had fight sequences, in which Superman does punch. Again, the OP is not defending the reboot's decision to not do battle scenes, but implying that the original did not need a punch in order to still hold up even though it could have easily included more action (the first two films were shot back-to-back).

    • Kimi FW
      Kimi FW 2 роки тому +1

      @Shiranui Aensland Fine. I'll explain. He mentioned that it's 2006 because the movie studio should have had the technology by then to have Superman punch things while giving the older movies a pass for lacking that.

      Unlike 1978 film, this movie doesn't have well rounded characters, a good chemistry between leads, colors, emotion. So it desperately needs some punching to distract us from boredom.

    I know I'm late on this but the part where superman was listening to all the cries should have had the sounds of the cop cars showing up, the bank being assaulted and soon. Even if it's at the same desibells as the rest of them, it would have been not only a cool thing for those who noticed, it adds to the realism.

      When i was playing Injustice i was still seeing his point of view even if i didn't agree. But i guess you don't want any complexity. Make him a full on villain by killing Shazam. That is obviously more interesting.
      Superman turns bad. But does bad things because he thinks that's right. Nope. That's uninteresting. The comics probably did a better job, but i was bored pretty soon to care.
