He's back. A hero for our millennium. And not a moment too soon, because during the five years (much longer in movie-fan years!) Superman sought his home planet, things changed on his adopted planet.

Fresh: The movie has an undercurrent of personal drama that leaves you with a lump in your throat and an urgent need to see Superman return again.

After long expectation, I'm pretty sure lots of Superman fans, like me, are disappointed with this one. The fans were expecting more since Bryan Singer's got to be the director but then he decided not to put any action at all, this is basically only showing Superman helping people from falling objects. Brandon Routh with his good looking face is actually not that bad. God damn it, learn from Spider-Man or Batman, people!

I really enjoy Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns". I love where the story was taken, everything seems deterministic and action, drama and romance stem from the actions of the characters; like any good should. Visually, the special effects and cinematography are dazzling. I also really like the performances, Brandon Routh, Kate Bosworth and Kevin Spacey are all natural fits for me. In the end it's really the character drama and romance that seal the deal for me. It's a brave vision for those elements to take the center of the story, rather than the action, but it's something that is extremely satisfying and resonant.
