Superman Returns (Flick’s Review)

Posted on | February 7, 2010 | 2 Comments

Superman has been gone for 5 long years.  And the world has moved on without him.  Fearless reporter Lois Lane now has a fiance, a son, and Pulitzer Prize for her article on “Why the World Doesn’t Need Superman”.  But now that Superman is back everyone’s happy, even Lois Lane is torn between her fiance and Superman.  Find out if Superman can tackle Lex Luthor in Superman Returns.

My favorite part is when Superman saves Lois and everyone on a plane, because I like when he flies up to the plane and carries it down to the baseball game and rips open the door.

My favorite character is Superman because he always saves the day.

Flick’s Rating: 5 out of 5

My Rating: PG-13 for some intense action violence and romance. Recommended for ages 9+ lots and lots of meanness and Lex Luthor is pretty scary (check with your parents).

    There will be a sequel also with Brandon Routh as Superman. The villans will be Lex Luthor again played by Kevin Spacey and an evil computer. The director of The Dark Knight will produce it. He will direct (probably) the last Christan Bale Batman movie. From Flack

    I wrote this review (the post) a while ago (two years) and other than my favorite scene and character there was no “review” aspect to it. But now after watching the film for the fourth time, I present to you my analyzation of the film.

    New Rating: 4 stars

    This film is grandscale and really, really, really long. Too long. Way too long. But it’s also really good and intriguing. Like Superman (the original) and Spider Man 2, this film raises questions that you wouldn’t expect to be raised by a superhero film. The common question is asked by Superman (in both films) and Spider Man: Which is more important love or crime fighting? If you know these caped crusaders then you’ll know what the answer is going to be, but just in case you don’t know these heroes I won’t spoil the answer. The films revolve around this singular question and while at first the question sounds boring, it’s stretched to full extent in all three films.

    Bryan Singer, best known for The Usual Suspects, X-Men, and X2, is very good at balancing action and emotion. He doesn’t do it with quite the effect Richard Donner and Sam Raimi did, however he does it pretty well.

    The film feels a bit… stale for the last half hour (they just had to make it two and a half hours, didn’t they). But for the most part this gives hope for the upcoming Man of Steel and many more Superman adventures to come.
