I think this will revive the Superman series like Batman Begins did Batman. I thought it was well done esp the fight scenes at the end. It's NOT perfect but better than we've seen since the original in 1977 and its first sequel (only decent other one). All others since then stunk ! I loved the flashbacks as a kid and him trying to find his identity and destiny. I hope they put more in future sequels. I was impressed with Crowe's part as Jor El... thought he was very good ! Kosner was good but Crowe stole the second major part. This was NOT a cheap movie to make - I think I heard it cost $200 million. Hope it does well this weekend.
I give it a 4.25 out of 5.0... maybe a 4.5.... somewhere in that ball park. Anyone else impressed ?? (or not)
You've heard of the Superman curse haven't ya? I doubt it's real, but poor old George Reeves killed himself and Christopher Reeve had that terrible equestrian accident.
I loved G. Reeves... great guy. Watched that series every day as a kid. On one of his episodes he had Chuck Connors !! (and his mule). BTW Connors name in the episode was Superman ! Those 2 hit it off pretty well. I also liked the 2nd Lois Lane (Noel Neill) better than the first (Phyllis Coates). Jack Larsen was a hoot, esp. the time he tried to play a Bogart type Private Eye ! He even had the lisp down !! It was great Sci-Fi for the 50's !!
In fact coincidentally, yesterday was the 54th anniversary of Reeves' death. June 16th !
