Superman Returns

Superman Returns



I took in Superman Returns this past weekend with some anticipation, especially since it has been fairly well reviewed. I came away somewhat disappointed, as the second half of the movie dragged on after a promising start. The script seemed to fall apart after the Kryptonite island entered the plot, and the running time was far too long. Also, Kate Bosworth wasn't very convincing as Lois Lane.

It will be interesting to see what the sequels hold, especially since we are introduced to the son of Superman (an underdeveloped plotline which wasn't handled well by the writers). Batman is where it's at in terms of the superhero genre now that Batman Begins has re-energized the franchise.

Hope everyone had a great 4th!

i feel like the under-developed plot line of the son was saved for the sequel.

i agree about batman begins' christopher nolan did such a good job on the film...i personally also enjoyed the x-files...but i am done w/ superhero movies until the "batman begins 2" (whatever they will call it).

Great flick, although most anything with a large bucket of popcorn qualifies in my book...
