The film's weaknesses aside, there is no denying that Singer has pulled out all the stops in his bid to make the biggest, loudest summer blockbuster possible.

The film has a parallel universe that extends beyond the losses the characters suffer to the ones the audience has, based on who we are and what has happened to us.

By taking a step backward and remembering what we loved about Superman in the first place, Singer goes two steps forward and produces a triumph of not only good over evil but faith over cynicism.

A lovingly crafted homage to the greatest superhero of all time, and a tribute to the real life hero who best embodied the character of Superman, Christopher Reeve.
