Lyles' Movie Files

Would have benefited greatly from Singer trusting his talent and assembling a Superman movie that attempted to soar beyond the heights previously achieved decades ago.

For all the mountains of kryptonite ranged against him, you never fear for Superman or Lois Lane, never experience anything more intense than the fret of mild peril.

Superman Returns is a great kick start to a potentially knockout new franchise, which ultimately leaves the audience, like the people of Metropolis when its greatest hero returns to the skies, brimming with hope.

One of this summer's best action movies.

Reverse Shot

The movie runs nearly half an hour longer than it should, with a new plot strand introduced in the third act that has questionable vitality in the presumed sequel.

None of which would register if Routh weren't a Superman whom if we don't need we can at least feel for.

Sacramento News & Review

Underneath its mechanical safety and mild-manners, this movie does have some heart and some muscle. You'll come to like having it around, even if you thought you'd already moved on.

Superman Returns feels eager to please, and it frequently succeeds, but despite its best intentions, it seldom soars to the height of 1978's Superman: The Movie

Superman Returns is a bombastic, rousing, explosive burst of summer fun and fantasy, enriched by its predecessors and rejuvenated by the new blood and slavish religious devotion of director Bryan Singer.

Solid and emotionally direct but not the concussive powerhouse many will be hoping for.

Anton Bitel
Eye for Film

the tragedy of 9/11 and Lois' super sex with the 'man of steel' are two major selling points of the film, but they remain as sublimated as Clark Kent's secret identity.

Ignore the hype, ignore the budget, ignore the expectations, sit back, relax and let Superman return.

Cape May Beachcomber

The Man of Steel as a morally-compromised and ethically-challenged figure has the potential to be quite compelling, but if and only if he is portrayed as confronting his demons in a more meaningful way.

It's too long, but then so-called 'event movies' always have been.

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

Resembling Reeve both physically and vocally, Routh certainly has large red boots to fill. And he fills them admirably

Yes, the new Superman Returns movie flies. It just doesn't soar.
