Re: What's So Bad About Superman Returns?
SR was a moderately successful movie that had many positive review from top critics, it was just not a popcorn entertainment movie that many wanted, that was one of the reasons why it did not make as much money as WB expected it to make.
Add to it the fact that Superman was returning to big screen after a period of 19 years and many people were just not looking forward to it.
Competition it had to face with movies that provided summer popcorn entertainment like Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest affected SR's box office collections too.
To sum it all up it was a good closure of Donner-verse and it was a moderately successful box office collections, the reviews by critics were positive and superman fans were divided in their opinions.
Some fans liked it and some did not, it is all a matter of opinion, it is subjective. Personally speaking, I had issues it some of the plot points but I liked it overall, to me positives outweigh the negatives.
