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.

Thrilling but violent, tense return for the Man of Steel.

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.

I hate this film, I don't know what gave Bryan Singer the audacity to sat 'Forget the last 2 films, I've got a better idea'. How dare he! Start again, you wont be able to top the first film but put your own mark on it! Its just so painfully crap, Singer is very overrated and the actors all do a pretty lousy job with their characters (apart from Spacey who is the only saving grace). My biggest problem with it is the storyline. Suddenly a whole continent of Kryptonite can't stop Superman ever though a pebble of the stuff nearly kills him. Don't get me started on the whole 'Superboy' scene. At least Superman fans are united in condemning it, I just hope it has not killed Superman's chances in the future. I'm watching Smallville from now on!

Simply couldn't be better than that. Kevin Spacey is a great Lex Luthor. Astonishing special effects.

I found Superman Returns actually fun, the effects are great, and I think Brandon Routh played a very cool Superman. Some cheesy moments and plot holes, but that doesn't take away the fun and coolness that is Superman. I personally thought Kevin Spacey was tremendous, and greatly increased the Lex Luthor lovers. Although its not Batman Begins, its definently one of the coolest reboots out there.
