SUPERMAN RETURNS (Theatrical Release USA 2006)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

Superman Returns is
 about the same as movies 1, 2, and 4 in this series. It uses special effects comparable to The Avengers. It relies on an okay script, the talents of Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor, and introduces Brandon Routh as Clark Kent/Superman. This film needs a better script and portrayal.

Superman returns to Krypton to examine the ruins of his former home. In his long absence, he loses his reputation as a steadfast friend of Earth and not only must regain that reputation, but save the world from another Lex Luthor scheme.

Additional Thanks

Good Work for Director Bryan Singer. Thank you to Executive Producers William Fay, Thomas Tull, Chris Lee, and Scott Mednick for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth), Richard White (James Marsden), Kitty Kowalski (Parker Posey), Perry White (Frank Langella), Jimmy Olsen (Sam Huntington), Martha Kent (Eva Marie Saint), Jor-El (Marlon Brando, Archival Footage), Stanford (Kal Penn), Jason White (Tristan Lake Leabu), Brutus (David Fabrizio), Riley (Ian Roberts), Grant (Vincent Stone), and Bo the Bartender (Jack Larson).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. This film is average. The 1983 Superman III is the best of this series. The 2013 remake of the 1978 film Superman, titled Man of Steel with Henry Cavill, and that series of superhero films are better films than these 5 films.
