as a superman fan, it was sorta dissapointing. i voted ok, but it does not live up to original superman I-II. i was expecting more, but its hard to recreate those intangibles that made the original superman good.
they messed up with the most important element, that is supes and lois. there was obvious chemistry missing between clark/supes and lois, and the plot was forcing some sort of romance when it was clear that kate bosworth and routh shared no chemistry.
thats the result of horrible casting, especially superman and lois. yea superman looks like a superman, but the dude cannot act. overall, i thought lois and superman both were too young, at least in looks. how can a pulitzer winning journalist look like she just graduated from college? it was just unconvincing acting. well i guess when you combine a tv soap extra and a surfergirl from blue crush, you have a recipe for disaster.
there were a lot of action scenes, but as the movie progressed, i felt more and more detached to superman and his cause. he's too rigid, invokes apathy and just lacks important emotions or the expression of it. in the end, with all the plotline weirdness, i was hoping they wouldnt make another superman movie, at least not with this cast and production team.
id rather watch superman I-II anyday. btw, there is supposed to be a richard donner's cut of the 2 superman movies and i hear its supposed to have a lot of lost footages and stuff. remember, donner is the original director who got fired before superman II was released. hope it comes out soon.
