I still say it's a top 5 superhero movie of all time. I'm probably the only one who thinks that though, but it doesn't matter.
I think so too, and many others do. You just won't find them in comicbook sites.

This review and its audience loved it too.

I loved this part: "Confronted with a role as constricting as his famous suit, newcomer Brandon Routh can only be lauded for the grace and quiet dignity he brings to the part. (He's just as good, if not better, as bumbling alter-ego Clark Kent.)"

Honestly, if SR didn't get a sequel I think the Siegel and Shuster lawsuit is mainly to blame.
