Topic: Superman Returns Review 10 / 10 Stars
Seems its a movie well worth checking out.
Itâ€™s a bird! Itâ€™s a plane! Itâ€™s the best action film/love story of the summer! â€œSuperman Returns,â€ superbly directed by Bryan Singer and co-written by Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris, is the soaring new chapter in the saga of one of the worldâ€™s most beloved super heroes. What makes it truly stand out is the wonderfully intimate, yet epic tale it tells, set against a backdrop of vast scope and scale, using the latest, most groundbreaking camera and visual effects technology. The story is at once contemporary, emotional, action-packed, and romantic. Despite all the cultural, industrial and technological changes that have occurred since Superman made his comic book debut in 1938, then went on to be featured in a newspaper strip which ran for more than three decades, one thing remains constant â€“ his inherent desire to use his special abilities to lead by example and to do good for the world. His selfless heroics are still inspiring even today.
The story begins five years after Superman (played by talented newcomer Brandon Routh) mysteriously disappears from Earth. During his absence, he travels to the far reaches of space in search of his past, looking for traces of his family or others like himself. What he finds, instead, is a radioactive ruin where his home planet of Krypton once stood. Supermanâ€™s long search for his place in the universe ends back at the Kent farm, among the only family he has ever known. This place, among the flawed but ultimately good people of Earth, is his true home. He now realizes that his destiny lies in the city of Metropolis where he resumes his cover of Clark Kent, Daily Planet reporter.
