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.

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.

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.

More stolid than awe-inspiring

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

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.

The Man of Steel returns in body but not quite in spirit.
July 6, 2006
There's no spark. No life. A chuckle here or there but no romantic tension, no wit, no inspiration.
July 3, 2006
This latest movie based on the D.C. comic comes off like a harlequin novel-cum-Christian pageant set in a planetarium.

His mother tells Superman, "The Universe is a big place." Later, Lois Lane tells him, "I forgot how warm you are." Any movie with lines like these deserves to be avoided, despite the appealing IMAX 3D.

A dismal affair with robotic acting and humorless dialogue.

Superman Returns is slavishly reverential and morose -- The Passion of the Christ from Krypton, with a sad, erratic pulse.
