The biggest problem with Superman Returns is the script, which bogs down in the love story and forgets the action -- which should be the strong point.
June 5, 2019
One blockbuster that actually delivers.
April 13, 2019
Overall not a terrible watch but a little bit dry.

The man doesn't have an ounce of charisma and at best can only be described as an expressionless log of wood. In retrospect, I'd settle for our own delectable Hrithik.

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.
July 12, 2010
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.
July 6, 2010
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.
July 6, 2010
One of this summer's best action movies.
July 6, 2010
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.
August 30, 2009
More stolid than awe-inspiring

None of which would register if Routh weren't a Superman whom if we don't need we can at least feel for.
August 7, 2008
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.
July 7, 2008
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
February 28, 2008
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.
September 23, 2007
Solid and emotionally direct but not the concussive powerhouse many will be hoping for.
August 6, 2007
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.
July 14, 2007
Ignore the hype, ignore the budget, ignore the expectations, sit back, relax and let Superman return.
June 16, 2007
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.
May 27, 2007
better than 3 and 4
March 24, 2007
May be the most reverent superhero film ever made.
