Just got back from seeing it. I preface this with an admission of geek-dom as I was a big comics reader as a kid, and still am to some degree. So, I'm a little harsh on comic flicks. I'm also a HUGE fan of the first 2 Superman movies, although I recognize the flaws.
This movie is really, really good. A bit more heart and substance than the usual comic flick.
My only real suggestions to improve next go round would be:
- Bulk Brandon Routh up more. He's just not....Super enough. Call Jason Grimsley.
- Lose the "S" curl in his hair. It looks dumb in the comics, it looked goofy on Christopher Reeve, and looks flat out sissyfied on Routh. I know it's a trademark thing and all, but the big red S kinda indentifies the guy.
- I'd have liked a slightly darker Lex out of Spacey....a little more of the acidic, mean side of Spacey would've gone a long way.
All in all, I thought it rocked. I'd go 4 out of 5 stars.
I'd like to hear everyone else's thoughts or reviews when they see it. Let's hear 'em.....
