A mixed bag, with a tremendously engaging first half and a clunky, repetitive, salesman-esque second half... but it's got enough of the goods where it counts.

Audience Reviews for Look Up in the Sky: The Amazing Story of Superman

½

I've never been a fan of Superman, but this enlightening documentary really allows you to respect what is, in my opinion, an out dated character. This film details the highs and lows of Superman in popular culture, and avoids being just an advertisement for his latest incarnation. There are interesting tidbits, such as many of the distinctive characters/traits coming from the early radio shows. We see Superman's effects on celebrities, writers, producers, a world at war, and much more. At times it places its feet where they're not wanted. Did we really need talk on September 11th? Probably more of a nice introduction to the character, or good for those looking to expand their knowledge. But most fans will be familiar with what's going on.

Good information in this documentary. I recommend it for the folks looking to learn more about the Man of Steel on film.

Interesting but it's not something you'll watch more than 2 or 3 times throughout your lifetime.
