This Superman is good. Very good.
June 27, 2006
It will get to you, if you can be gotten to.
June 27, 2006
The movie has an undercurrent of personal drama that leaves you with a lump in your throat and an urgent need to see Superman return again.
June 27, 2006
A beautifully crafted, emotionally resonant and heavily nostalgic Man of Steel guaranteed to appeal to several generations of Superman fans.
June 27, 2006
Singer gets the details right but the big picture is uneven.
June 27, 2006
The world needs him, all right, and it should welcome his Return.
June 27, 2006
Singer has succeeded beyond anyone's expectations -- and establishes himself as someone to whom any film aiming for taste and intelligence could be trusted.
June 27, 2006
Superman Returns is arguably the most expensive film ever made, and yet you leave the theater thinking, wow, those Spider-Man movies are really good.
June 27, 2006
This is a glum, lackluster movie in which even the big effects sequences seem dutiful instead of exhilarating.
June 27, 2006
A generally thrilling entertainment that's not quite the grand slam you want it to be.
June 26, 2006
It's good to have him back, even if he is a bit more fragile.
June 26, 2006
An action sequence isn't just about spectacular visions but about making audiences care about those visuals, about what they mean for the characters. There, Superman Returns comes up short.
June 26, 2006
Maybe The Incredibles has spoiled me for superhero movies. The new Superman has its visionary charms, but there's only so far you can go without great characters.
June 26, 2006
Superman Returns' real hero is director Singer. He gives us a movie that is mellow when it should be and rousing when it should be. That can't have been an easy juggling act.
June 26, 2006
Though his movie is a blink-of-an-eye too long, Singer and company have given us a reason to be excited about Superman all over again.
June 26, 2006
Where once the Man of Steel flew up, up and away, in a leaden new film he flies down, down, down, sent from above to save mankind from its sins.
June 26, 2006
[Singer] has brought the venerable superhero soaring back to life by delivering a satisfying blend of action, story and character development. If the movie is half an hour longer than it needs to be, there also are moments when you wish it would never end
June 26, 2006
It's not that Superman Returns doesn't have any ideas, it's got too many; this is a film that tries too hard and wants too much.
June 26, 2006
Superman Returns is pop mythology reinvigorated with intense grandeur, infectious energy and fierce conviction by director Bryan Singer.
June 26, 2006
Does the world really need Superman? Maybe not everyone. But people who love movies do.
